4: Strategy to Solve Previous Years Engineering Paper

  • Attempt SSC JE Previous Year Paper to improve time management skills for objective as well as descriptive paper. 
  • Divide your engineering SSC JE Previous year Paper into 2 parts- numerical-based & theory-based.
  • Since the theoretical questions are fact-based and you'll either know the answer or won't, you can solve them easily in less time.
  • Don’t take too much time in solving numerical-based questions. Practice numerical questions daily and improve your speed. 

5: Practice and Strategize by taking SSC JE Mock Tests

  • When you are attempting mock tests for SSC JE, your goal should be to optimize time according to the difficulty level and complexity of questions.
  • Attempting a mock test will let you know the amount of time that you spend on each question.

After you finish the mock test, carry out a detailed analysis of your performance

  • Note down the type of questions that you are frequently getting wrong, and prepare for them well until you master the type.
  • Make a strategy while attempting the questions, firstly attempt only those of which you are 100% sure of, then mark the ones of which you are 50% sure of, and then skip the ones you are unsure of as the SSC JE exam paper has negative marking.

6: Learn from Mistakes

  • During preparation, make sure you pay more attention to the ones you failed to attempt during mock tests.
  • Remember, you need to learn how to solve all types of questions asked in the exam. Therefore give your undivided attention to each topic in the syllabus.

Solve at least 10-15 questions of the high difficulty level regularly, this will help you to solve them easily during the actual examinat
