Understand the pattern of SSC MTS Exam 2017. You will be tested on four subjects – general intelligence & reasoning, numerical aptitude, general English, general awareness. Each of these subjects have been given equal weight of 25 marks. The total number of marks would be 100. The duration of exam would be 90 minutes for general candidates and 120 minutes for visually handicapped, cerebral palsy candidates. In 90 minutes, you have to solve 100 questions. It mean you must solve a questions within 54 second. So the time management is the key. Know your strength and weakness, allow more time to your weak areas. Attempt the questions that you know you can sail through. The exam is no time for you to experiment.

Do not hate or love a question. Just solve it or move. Solving a difficult question would fetch you the same marks as an easy ones. So invest your time in questions that are easy for you. Drop the tough question or leave it for end. Forget about the question you dropped. You are going to lose marks if you obsess over dropped questions

As said above, allot less time to a subject in which you are strong, use that saved time for for difficult subjects like Quant. According to experts, questions in the Reasoning and Quant sections can be time consuming. Identify the short ones and comprehension questions without too many calculations and attempt those first.

Possibly, no candidate would be attempting all the questions, so you should also not worry about that. Just choose the questions which are easier and less time consuming at starting, next move to moderate one and finally, if you have time go for tough one.

Last but not the least, do not guess. And, always remember that there is negative marking of 0.25 marks per wrong answers. We wish you good luck!
