English Language and Comprehension

Questions' Pattern - The breakup of questions is like this:

  • Vocabulary based - 20%
  • Grammer based - 45%
  • Comprehension and sentences arrangement - 35%
Scoring in the English paper is easier as compared to the maths paper as it is less time consuming. But to develop a good grasp over English one needs time and patience.
Many candidates feel that a good vocabulary is needed to clear the exam and cram a lot of words which they see in newspapers. They do not learn the right usage of the word.This is not the right approach.
SSC does not ask for very high flowing words but you must be sure of the usage of the word and how it is used in sentences.
For example the word "tantrum". Students just cram the meaning of the word which is a display of bad temper. But they also need to know two more things. Firstly it is generally used with reference to ‘children’ and secondly the verb that is used with it is ‘throw'.

SSC Exam questions are like:

Q. Did the child ——– from the chair ?
a) fell                                                     
b)  fallen
c) falling                                               
d) fall

What to do to develop vocabulary?
  • If a student is a bit more aware about the usage of the word in sentences along with its meaning it is helpful.
  • For beginners one must try to learn a few new  words everyday along with their usage.
  • Read a few sentences from the dictionary or online to understand the usage of the word.The more variety you read the better it is.
  • One must begin with at least 10 new words per day in the beginning which can be gradually increased depending on availability of time and grasping power.
Next most important section is comprehension passages and there are 30 to 40 questions from comprehension  passages. This section is simple and direct questions are asked from the passages. Sometimes it becomes time consuming when the sentences in the passage are too long or one sentence has too much information stuffed into it.
