SSC MTS Tier I Study Plan to Maximise Score

Study Plan to Maximise Score

It is ideal that you prepare a study plan in order to maximise your chances of getting a really good score in the SSC MTS Tier 1 Exam. To that extent, we have provided a few tips which will help you create one. And remember it's always better to have a plan than go in blind!

SSC MTS Tier I Preparation Tips

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

  • Work on your weak points: During exam time, you should concentrate on your weak spots, which are the chapters and ideas with which you are having trouble, particularly those that are critical for the exam. It's necessary to work on your weak areas, but don't put too much pressure on yourself to do so. 
  • Don't pick new topics: One of the most critical last-minute SSC MTS Tier I advice is to avoid touching or selecting any new subject. Even if you spend time studying the subject, if you don't comprehend it, your confidence will suffer. Revise and master the topics that you have already completed.
  • Create a sound revision strategy: Every second of the final days before the exam is crucial. As a result, you should devise and implement an effective revision process. Make a schedule - set aside time for each course and devote additional time to your 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 your preparation, you won't be able to solve or even go over all of the questions you've practised for each subject. You can achieve this by answering crucial and challenging questions from the chapters you've already read. Begin with the most crucial chapters, then move on to the more challenging chapters, and finally all other chapters.
  • Stay positive: You must remain confident and concentrated in order to translate your knowledge into exam marks. Allow no negativity to stand in the way of achieving your goal. You will perform admirably in the exam.

SSC MTS Tier I Exam Taking Strategy

Here are a few tips you can follow to devise a successful strategy:

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

Detailed Study plan

The SSC MTS exam necessitates a solid understanding of the subjects, as well as consistent, practice in order to achieve a high score. Use the exam preparation resources listed below to improve your exam readiness.

It's critical to understand the best strategy for the SSC MTS Preparation Strategy (Tier I) and to maximise the value of what you've previously learned. You can go through the below-given points to get a better understanding of 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 you 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 to incorporate 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.
