Quantitative Aptitude (Maths):
The Maths section consists of four major areas: Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry.
Geometry is the most important among all the areas. You must give it emphasis.
Trigonometry must not be avoided at any cost. Focus on height and distance as well as trigonometric identities.

English Language:
Preparation for this section would include focusing on the following topics: one-word substitution, idioms and phrases, synonyms and antonyms, fill in the blanks (sentence completion), sentence formation errors, reading comprehension, sentence rearrangement, and jumbled-up sentences.
Narration and active voice / passive voice may or may not be there in tier-I exam. You may overlook then if there is a scarcity of time. However, make sure you cover for the tier-II examination.
Quite often vocabulary-based questions (one-word substitution, synonyms, and antonyms), as well as idioms and phrases from past SSC papers, get repeated. So, it makes a lot of sense to go through previous year exam papers and focus specifically on these questions.
The difficulty level of reading comprehension passages is not high. However, some practice is needed to locate the answers to comprehension questions asked from these passages.
Now, For cracking sentence error spotting problems, knowledge of grammatical rules is essential. If you find yourself lacking in grammar, you should focus on practicing English usage questions such as fill in the blanks, sentence rearrangement, and jumbled-up questions.

General Knowledge (GK):
Among all sections, GK has the most comprehensive syllabus and requires a lot of time for preparation. So, it is a must to understand the pattern of questions.
While going through past year SSC questions papers, pay attention to the frequently asked questions from science, politics, history, and geography. It is quite common for these questions to get repeated in the exam.
Within GK, current affairs do not carry that much weight age. So, if you are not in a position to brush up current affairs, you need not worry too much.
You must surely focus on questions based on - 
(a) the firsts in India 
(b) common chemical compounds 
(c) folk dances of India & traditional festivals 
(d) Indian constitution 
(e) socio-religious movements of pre-independent India 
(f) national income & market structure 
(g) important scientific phenomena 
(h) medieval & modern Indian history
