An Analysis of SSC Stenographer Exam Pattern 2017
Negative Marking: The exam pattern is simply intended to handpick candidates who are smart as well as intelligent. With 200 questions on offer, candidates will have a leverage in picking up their strong areas as answering all the questions within the given time frame is next to impossible. Moreover, presence of negative marking will make the situation tougher for the candidates to play the guessing game. For every wrong answer, the authority will deduce 0.25 or 1/4th of a mark.
Presence of sections suggests that their will sectional cut offs as well. This means that a candidate has to devote time to each section. However 100 questions in the English language is a hint towards investing more than an hour in the other two sections. The most time saving section will be General Awareness, where you either ‘know’ an answer or you ‘don’t’. The most challenging part of the exam is to handle the General Intelligence section as it will test the patience of a candidate with long questions and tricky solutions. A candidate has to maintain his composure and balance the time consumption in this section.
Exam timings and rules: The notification which was issued by the SSC clearly indicates strict regulations with respect to timings. As a candidate you need to enter the examination venue 30 minutes earlier than the time of examination. This means that if you are appearing in the morning shift, then your arrival time should be earlier than 09:30 am and if you are in the afternoon shift, then your arrival time should be before 01:30 pm. Any delay can disallow a candidate from sitting in the exam.
