Analysis Summary: Questions are not at all at the level of SSC CGL 2016. SSC has raised the level of questions in ssc cgl 2017. Reasoning is the most scoring subject while GK depends on your knowledge base and awareness. In SSC CGL 2016 Maths was way too easy but this time its bit calculative and time consuming. Many candidates are facing scarcity of time in solving whole paper. This year English pattern is bit inclined on Tier-2 pattern. Surprisingly SSC is not asking any questions from Reading Comprehension instead Questions on Voice, Narration, PQRS, Cloze test are being asked. Overall SSC has improved its level and its too early to say but cut-off will surely fall this year.
