How to Prepare for SSC MTS Examination
Practice is the key for this exam and both speed as well as accuracy is required. The level of the questions remains easy to moderate except General Awareness. General Awareness paper requires very good preparation as the level of questions remains good. So if you want to score high marks in this exam try to score high marks in General Awareness paper. For other sections you need to practice as much as you can and you can score good marks as 90 minutes are good enough time to attempt all the sections and questions.
