Hi friends, I am Navtej Garewal. An SSC CGL 2015 aspirant and ardent reader of Gr8ambitionz. You know how important is GK for SSC and other competitive exams. But I felt gr8 is paying less attention on standard GK. So I have decided to share a few articles on standard GK in Quiz format, which will be beneficial for all the aspirants in upcoming competitive exams (except Banking Exams). As a tribute to APJ Abdul Kalam, I am starting with Science Quiz. Based on your response, I will try to organize these posts in sorted manner (Geography, Science, History etc). Happy Reading :)
