It is too easy
Just because it is an exam conducted after 10+2, does not mean it is an easy exam. The syllabus for General Awareness Section is vast enough. Maths, though being of 10th level involves much more practice to understand the framing of the questions .

You need much advanced knowledge for CHSL
The Staff Selection Commission clearly states that the level of Quantitative Aptitude will be upto 10th class only. Not only that, the level of English Section will be of 10+2 level. However the framing of questions is twisted and clarity of concepts is the utmost requirement for solving such questions.
Shortcuts and tricks are necessary for Quantitative Section
Tricks are meant for reducing the amount of time you spent on a question and utilize it to attempt other questions thus maximizing your overall score. But let me warn you that before applying any tricks you need the understand the question first which requires clarity of concepts. Otherwise a single twist in the framing of question may lead to wrong answer.
Questions from the previous year papers are repeated in the subsequent exams
Ascertaining previous year papers is good for understanding the pattern of questions . Some changes are observed in the pattern over the years, but similar questions are also visible. However, questions from the previous year are not repeated in the exam. Each year the commission prepares a new set of questions though they might be related to the ones from the past.
You must be a typing wizard or be practicing for years to clear the Tier III Exam
