General Awareness Section Strategy for SSC CHSL

Complete SSC CHSL Preparation Strategy for General Awareness Section


General Awareness Section Strategy for SSC CHSL has an important role to play in cracking the CHSL exam. Although this section is tested directly in the Tier I Exam, it has a large but subtle role to play in the Tier II Exam as well. 

In the Tier I Exam, it occupies 25 questions i.e. 50 marks out of the total 100 questions for 200 marks. In the Tier II Exam which is descriptive paper, topics for essays and applications are based on general awareness related topics. There are two major parts in this section:

  • Current Affairs, which involves day to day events happening around the world 
  • General Studies, which involves knowledge of subjects such as history, geography, and politics.

Keeping this in mind, we have created a complete preparation strategy. This includes recommended resources, preparation guidelines, an in-depth explanation, of the type of questions that will be asked in the exams.

Major Topics from the point of view of SSC CHSL


Major phenomena of India, as well as world history. For example- Major Battles, Ancient Civilizations, Trade routes and artefacts of old times, modern history and freedom struggle.

Latest discoveries in Science and Technology, major news related to tech companies such as the launch of flagship gadgets. 

Major awards and honours conferred upon people in India and across the globe. Sometimes questions related to the category of the award, reason for conferring the award, details of the Awardees, recipients and other nominees are asked.

Major achievements in sports and other games such as World Chess Championship, Wimbledon tournament, etc.

Basic physics such as units of measurement, Names of Major scientists and their discoveries or inventions.

Chemistry based questions, such as common names, scientific names, and uses of chemicals. 

Basic questions of biology such as scientific names of organisms, environment-related changes such as Global Warming.

Guidelines for preparation as well as exams

  • Inculcate a habit of reading the newspaper and other informative articles on a daily basis.
  • Make a note of all the things that you find important in a news piece. Usually, questions are asked based on numbers such as the amount of money allocated for ‘Ladli’ scheme by the government.  
  • Watch highlights and rapid news hour sections of various news channels. These contain a summation of all the important events that have taken place recently.
  • Then choose which are important, from the point of view of CHSL Exam. Remember celebrity and Bollywood related gossips are not part of the CHSL syllabus.
