Preparation Tips & Strategies for SSC JE
Here are some top tips and tricks to prepare for the SSC JE exam:
- Be thorough with the SSC JE Syllabus: Every aspirant who is preparing for the SSC Junior Engineer exam should be fully aware of the different sections and topics of the syllabus. They should know the importance of each topic and spend more time to understand each topic well. This will help them to analyse what are the questions that will be asked during the examination and comprehend the difficulty level of questions from different sections of the exam.
- Proper Time Management: The SSC JE Paper I Exam has around 200 questions and candidates need to answer the questions within a duration of 120 minutes. They need to focus on scoring sections first like General Awareness & Reasoning Ability and try to solve those questions which consume less time and are easy to score. Having said that, candidates should also ensure that they should maintain accuracy with speed while answering questions from any section and adopt some shortcut tricks to answer questions from different sections of the exam.
- Strategies to solve the Engineering Paper: The Engineering Paper of the SSC JE exam is divided into 2 parts – mathematical-based and theory-based. Candidates should try to solve the mathematical portion first and attempt those questions which are easier to crack and quickly jump to answering the theoretical portion where they can answer the question in less time. Once they are confident of scoring well from the easy questions, they should divert their attention to the difficult ones. However, they should not get wedded to a particular question and avoid wasting time just in case they are unsure of answering a complex question.
- Attempt SSC JE Mock Tests: While practicing mock tests, candidates should ensure that they follow the strategy of answering easy questions first and set extra time to solve the complex questions. By attempting mock tests, they are able to optimise time according to the difficulty level of the exam and understand the weightage of questions from each section.
