SSC MTS Tier 1 Preparation Tips 2023

Exam Result

Below are some of the preparation tips for the SSC MTS Tier 1 exam.

  • Work on weak points: During exam time, concentrate on weak spots, the chapters and ideas where there is trouble in understanding, particularly those that are critical for the exam. It’s necessary to work on the weak areas, but don’t put too much pressure on to do so. 
  • Don’t pick new topics: One of the most critical last-minute SSC MTS Tier 1 advice is to avoid touching or selecting any new subject. Revise and master the topics that have already been completed.
  • Create a sound revision strategy: Every second of the final days before the exam is crucial. As a result, candidates should devise and implement an effective revision process. Make a schedule – set aside time for each course and devote additional time to the weak subjects or topics. Revision of formulae, their derivations, equations, and so on should be given special attention.
  • Pick important questions: In the last minutes of preparation, candidates won’t be able to solve or even go over all of the questions they’ve practised for each subject. Candidates can achieve this by answering crucial and challenging questions from the chapters they’ve already read. Begin with the most crucial chapters, then move on to the more challenging chapters, and finally, all other chapters.
  • Stay positive: Candidates must remain confident and concentrated in order to translate their knowledge into exam marks. Allow no negativity to stand in the way of achieving the goal.

SSC MTS Tier 1 2023 Exam Taking Strategy

Here are a few tips candidates can follow in devising a successful strategy:

  • When it comes to getting good grades, time management is crucial. Manage time left so that each subject receives the same amount of attention. Give a little more extra attention to the weaker subjects. 
  • The time management rule also applies throughout the examination. An important tip is that candidates should first solve the section of the question paper that they are most familiar with.
  • Candidates should study as much as possible. Familiarise themself with the topics. Learn how to put them to use. What they have to study at the +2 level is vastly different from what they studied previously. Also, spend some time researching the fellowship’s potential. 
  • Solve previous years’ papers. Candidates must become acquainted with the calculator. Get to know the feature of marking questions as well. Experimenting in the exam hall is not a good idea. On the day of the exam, brush up on what has been studied and relax.

Detailed Study plan

The SSC MTS exam necessitates a solid understanding of the subjects and consistent practice to achieve a high score. Use the exam preparation resources listed below to improve exam readiness.

It’s critical to understand the best strategy for the SSC MTS Preparation Strategy (Tier 1). Candidates can go through the below-given points to better understand them.

  • Topics like percentage, average and data interpretation tend to remain very tricky but simple. The candidates are suggested to try to attempt such easy questions quickly after reading the instructions and then proceed towards the hard topics.
  • Simple techniques in algebra subjects can save a lot of time and help candidates solve problems quickly.
  • A total of 25 questions will be asked, so candidates should try to complete this section in about 35 minutes.

English is the most widely spoken language in the world. Mentioned below are some tips to help a candidate score better in the English section of the SSC MTS exam.

  • Candidates’ knowledge of the English language’s fundamentals, such as grammar, sentence structure, vocabulary, antonyms, and synonyms, as well as their writing abilities and full understanding of the subject will be assessed.
  • The skills of reading comprehension can be improved with continuous practice of a variety of passages. Make a habit of learning new words/phrases and then try incorporating them.
  • A total of 25 questions will be asked, so candidates should try to complete this section in between 5-10 minutes.

To tackle the hurdle of General Intelligence and Reasoning, listed below are a few points that can help candidates crack it easily.

  • Topics such as space visualisation along with the number series can be easily solved by many.
  • While covering the general problem-solving skills section, the candidate must focus on topics like logical deductions etc.
  • If the problem is taking too long, it’s always better to switch to the other problem and then later come back to the problem if time permits.
  • A total of 25 questions will be asked, so the candidate should try to complete this section within 15 minutes.

We have summarised some tips below to score better in the General Awareness section of the SSC MTS exam.

  • Questions are designed to check general knowledge and at the same time test the general awareness of the candidate. These questions do not require any special studies, the candidate should read the news and be aware of the events happening worldwide.
  • This topic is really vast as it covers worldwide news, so a candidate should start practising with the topic he/she is the most comfortable with and then gradually move to the other topics. 
  • If reading newspapers is not a habit, candidates can log in to the Embibe eLearning app and can get all the current affairs and news.
  • A total of 25 questions will be asked, so the candidate should try to complete this section within 5-7 minutes.
