    SSC CGL Syllabus

    SSC CGL Syllabus 2017:

    Being familiar with the syllabus for any exam is the first step of preparation. In the case of SSC CGL, it is very important for a candidate to know the syllabus in depth so as to prepare better by covering all topics well for different CGL tiers. SSC CGL Syllabus 2017 will most probably incorporate all the changes that were made last year. There is a lot of overlap across the different tiers. The detailed SSC CGL 2017 Syllabus for each tier is mentioned here. Do keep in mind, typically the difficulty level of questions is higher in SSC CGL Tier-2 compared to Tier-1. There is no reason to expect that the syllabus of the exam would change this year.
