Whenever you solve a set of questions and if it requires 30 minutes, try to solve them in 20 minutes. Initially you will not be able to manage but you know ‘practice makes a man perfect’

5. Prepare for SSS CHSL Prelims, Mains and Tier 3 simultaneously:

  • Generally, it is seen that candidates have a belief that first we should focus on prelims and thereafter on Mains which is not at all a good thought.
  • In today’s phenomenon, there is no huge gap (max approx. 30 to 60 days) between the dates of Prelims and mains exams, which is not sufficient at all to complete the preparation of mains exam from 0 level.
  • This time should be utilized only by practicing a number of mock tests.
  • A candidate who deeply observes the equation of time gap and required studies, he/she works simultaneously for all the phases.
  • In this series if we talk about the serious and regular attention, Current affairs updates also come into light. In the Main Examination, General knowledge/science section helps you score higher and makes the selection certain.

6. A well-managed study plan is important:

  • The most important question for the best preparation for SSS CHSL exams is ‘How to dedicate sufficient time to each subject’.
  • Make the time table according to the topics/subjects which are weak or strong.
  • Weak subject/topic must be allotted more time.

7. Practice Subject wise mock test:

  • Sometimes, by practicing the whole test, candidates are unable to assess the taken time in attempting any subject individually. If you start taking subject wise test, you will become the master of time management.
  • Through this you will be able to aware of silly mistakes that you have made previously and in the best way you will be able to judge your strength and weakness.
  • Switch on the timer and start practicing the complete set with same number of question and within the same time as provided in the real exam.
    For Example: -If you want to practice English: (30 questions mixed in 20 minutes)

8. Design a complete plan:

  • After following points mentioned above, it’s time to finally design your exam strategy.
  • Make a proper list of topics/subjects that you should attempt first.
  • Try not to waste much time on the questions which look tough on the first sight.
  • Topics like Mensuration, Geometry, Trigonometry, Rearrangement, reading comprehension etc., should not be touched initially, it kills your time if you have not practiced a lot.

Finally, we would like to say that everything is possible if once you are determined to achieve it.
