The SSC CGL course is normally for four to five months in which we complete 100% syllabus of both Tier 1 and Tier 2 including higher mathematics (Trigonometry, Algebra and advance Geometry). After completion of the course you can continue attending revision batch, current affairs classes, general awareness classes, paper discussion classes, etc., for a period of one year.

What is the fastest duration in which the course can be completed?

We recommend attending a normal batch (i.e. four months) for through understanding of all concepts. However, if you don’t have sufficient time before the SSC examination, we can put you in a crash course that will be over in a period of two months. For students taking the SSC for the first time, we strongly recommend that you study and prepare for one full year with us and then take your examination so that you clear it in the first attempt itself.

If I don’t clear the SSC Tier 1 or Tier 2 in the first attempt can I continue with the course with the same fee?

More than 60% of our students clear the SSC CGL in the first attempt. We work in small batches with focus on each and every student. Our high quality training and amazing shortcut techniques ensure that you ace the examination in the first attempt itself. This, however, depends on your commitment and hard work too.
