Paper analysis of SSC CGL 2015 Tier 2 Exam 25th October 2015 both Quantitative Aptitude / English Language
Hello friends we are here with the analysis of SSC CGL 2015 TIER 2 Exam held all over India on 25th October 2015. Sorry for delay as we are waiting for RTI reply of number of vacancies but SSC didn’t have any update yet on number of vacancies. To predict the cut off is a very difficult task and even more difficult when you don’t have information about number of vacancies. We assume less vacancies then CGL 2014 in CGL 2015 while predicting the cut off. If Number of vacancies is high then cut off may go down further.
The exam was conducted successfully all over India and till now no major issue of errors like paper leak etc. have been reported till now. Some candidates alleged that a few candidates left their OMR blank, & later their OMR will be filled by some corrupt officials but Nobody has any concrete information and evidence to prove their claim. If anyone has any evidence, he can take up matter with the police, but instead of it some are saying that candidates who could do not well in the examination are making Hue & Cry. Thanks to the alertness displayed by SSC while conducting the exam. The level of SSC CGL 2015 Tier 2 was balanced and was slightly on a tough side when compared to the paper of SSC CGL 2014 TIER 2. Difficulty of all sets are same as this time all regions papers have same Question.
Quantitative Aptitude Paper Analysis
This paper was a balance mix of easy, moderately difficult and difficult questions. Most of the questions were moderately difficult & lengthy. Around 15 questions of this paper were difficult. The questions of Percentages, Simple Interest, Time Speed and Distance were time taking. The most difficult were the questions of Geometry, Trigonometry and Algebra. Some questions of Algebra and Geometry were very tricky and needed a lot of practice to solve them. If we compare this paper with the TIER 2 of 2014 we can say that the paper was tough. No doubt this year's paper was lengthy.
An average candidate would have attempted around 65 questions in this paper. However any candidate who has been seriously preparing for SSC would have attempted questions in the range of 75 to 85.
A score under 140 can be said to be an average performance in this paper and any score above 160 can be said to a very good performance. Anyone scoring above 180 can consider himself to be among the top 500 all over India.
English Language and Comprehension Analysis
This is the paper where the real surprise awaited the students. The paper was moderately difficult. Shuffling of Question number in Cloze test put candidates in confusion & Some did cloze test question according to old pattern & found that most of the option went wrong. Same Problem was with the Error finding question & in this confusion people give more time to these two sections. Para Jumbles are tough, lengthy & time consuming, Some people were unable to attend full question paper because they gave a lot of time in Para Jumbles. All comprehension questions asked were of easy level barring one passage. Idioms and Phrases asked were easy and many candidates have all of them all correct. Antonyms and Synonyms were also easy. Direct Indirect conversion was easy but in Active Passive conversion some questions were tricky confusing students in some options. Many candidates have attempted 190 - 200 questions of this paper 2 and any score of 150 will be considered to be an average performance in this section.
If anyone is scoring above 165 in this paper his performance would be said to be very good.
