  • Sometimes students make a mistake by investing a lot time in a particular section because they think I am very good in this topic so I will solve questions of this topic but guys this is the biggest mistake. Do not get emotionally attached to any particular topic.
  • We all know our weaknesses and strengths in a subject. If you feel very much nervous or afraid in a particular topic then just leave the question of that topic and attempt it only when you are left with time after solving all four sections.
  • Sometimes when we open the exam paper and start reading questions, We find that most of the questions are tough as we don’t know their answers and we get panic. Don’t get panic and screw your exam. In this type of situation just skip that section and move to other section.
  • You will overcome all the above problems discussed only when you practice maximum questions of previous year SSC MTS exams. If possible try to solve a paper in 2 hours only because it will give you idea of your strengths and weaknesses and how to invest time in each section.
  • After solving a practice paper, it is very important to analyse your exam. Discuss your queries with your friends or with us.Just take a snapshot of that question and post it in gradeup. We will try to answer your queries as soon as possible.
