JKSSB Class IV Preparation Strategy

Basic Reasoning

We suggest you keep your preparation material minimum. Buying and referring to too many books will only end up confusing you. Therefore, we recommend the following study material:

  • Online video lectures or the book Modern Approach to Verbal and Non-verbal reasoning by R.S. Agarwal: To learn the concepts and solve sample questions.
  • JKSSB Class IV Mock Tests in latest pattern: Mock tests will help you:
  1. Know your standing & analyze your performance
  2. Determine your speed & accuracy
  3. Identify your strong & weak areas

Refer to your preparation material (books/video lectures) and learn the concepts. After completing each chapter, solve 15-20 examples given in books like R.S. Agarwal (contains many examples of each concept). It’s a good idea to make a timetable, allotting time for each section and sticking to it.

Dedicate at least 3-4 hours for Reasoning every day. Focus more on the verbal reasoning. Not down the solutions shown in the books/video lectures and see which is the shortest way you can solve the question.

Basic Mathematics

If your fundamentals in math are in place, i.e., if you scored well in math in 8th, 9th and 10th grades, you can allot 20 hours for the Quant section in the last week. If you need to brush up on your basics before moving to advanced concepts, give it 30 hours. If you’re average in Math, allot 25 hours per week.

Practice at least 15 questions from every topic per day. This should take you about 3 to 4 hours per day. Refer to the NCERT Mathematics books of 8th, 9th and 10th grades (selected chapters). SSC CGL Quant are based on these basic concepts so you need to have a good command over them.

Basic English

Practicing Mock Tests is the best way to test your preparation. Attempt JKSSB Class IV English Sectional Mock Test provided on Oliveboard. This will provide you the actual exam-like scenario and on the exam day, you will see the difference it has made in your preparation.

And if you are scoring less in the mocks, it is never too late to start from scratch. Go through basic grammar rules – trust us they are not many that you cannot learn or revise. Grab the Best English Language Book for exam preparation and go through it!
