This analysis should help you gain important insights and the scheme and pattern of question that SSC has been following. With the amalgamation of all the analyses, we will try to be as descriptive and as helpful as possible in this article, by enumerating the various popular topics and few important things that one must keep in mind while attempting the question paper.
From the feedback of students, it has been analysed that Paper was not much difficult but time duration of 1 hour was less to attempt it completely.
The overall level for the session leveled at moderate, with the level leaning a little more towards easy.
Major Changes :
Major changes were seen in English section. Questions of Cloze test, Narration and Voices which are generally asked in SSC CGL Tier 2 were also asked in Tier 1 Exam.
Moving onto the subtopics now, we begin this discussion with the first section of the paper,

SSC CGL Tier 1 Exam Analysis 2017: Reasoning Ability
In SSC CGL Tier 1 Exam, reasoning section has been very scoring on all shifts. You can see that only 2-3 questions were difficult. So the overall level of reasoning was again easy.
The one section which has maintained its level of difficulty at the same level since the past day. This section, remained easy as well, although we do implore you to definitely brush up on your weaker sections, and thus develop skills to definitely ace this section. The topics again remained similar to the scheme being followed the last day as well.

Keep in Mind: 

1. This was also the only section which remained easy, or perhaps easier, to attempt in comparison to the other subsections, for the duration of this examination session.
2.This brings to another important facet in this subsection. Never try to provide any details to the question from your side, unless specified in the question. The assumptions might prove to be incorrect and thus result in you in losing precious marks.
3. Also, important to note is the fact that the questions, although simple, were at times a little tricky but not difficult. The topics, such as that of series and pattern detection, especially required extra effort and practice. With nearly 5 questions asked from these topics in each of the shifts, these were few of the many subtopics which reigned in this section

  • This is the section that has suddenly become the most important and all the rage with all the candidates. Many even agree that this might very well play out to be the most crucial, in gaining an upper hand over the other competitors.
  • Major subtopics of general science and social sciences were asked around in nearly all of the shifts with a focus on current affairs and static GK as well.
Popular Topic in G.A for upcoming Paper: 
  • Geography: 
    Questions based on wildlife sanctuaries, along with a focus on temples and the corresponding temples. Rivers and mountain ranges also remained popular during the shifts
  • Famous Indian authors: 
    Books authored by prominent historical figures were put forth in the questions. Although Indian authors remained popular, important political figures such as Benazir Bhutto’s creations were also asked. Contemporary books, in comparison to the more traditional ones, were rather put forth to the candidates.
  • Physics:
    Questions remained puzzling at times but maintained a moderate level. Laws of Physics, along with the SI units of various physical variables were asked. In addition to this, the application based questions were also present which led to the level being moderate for such questions.

    Focused on awards, which can be moved to Nobel and then finally to Sports awardees.

    Questions ranged from various dynasties to famous monuments. Also, important birth and death dates of historically important figures remained important
