The second phase contains subjects such as General Engineering. Since a course like this takes a lot of practice, patience, focus, and study, in this article we’ll be sharing some of the best tips to pass the SSC JE exam

1. Always Go Through the Syllabus First

It’s quite essential to first know each topic that is covered in the syllabus, which is why candidates need to first research about the exam syllabus and lay down the plans for studying. For the best way to pass SSC JE exam, it’s suggested that candidates should always give more weightage towards chapters or sections that carry more marks as more questions will be asked from the same. 

2. Keep the Time Allocation Of The Exam Questions

It should be noted that the phase one part of the SSC JE exam contains about 200 questions, which needs to be completed within two hours. There is both the technical part as well as the non-technical questions.

It’s recommended that to pass the SSC JE exam students must finish the non-technical questions first and then try spending time on the technical questions.

Each question needs to be completed within half-a-minute, which means that students have to be very fast in answering all of them.

3. Practice SSC JE Mock Tests

Before students appear for the actual exam, it’s suggested that they should practice mock tests which will help in optimizing their time for answering the questions – ultimately helping them to pass the SSC JE exam. Depending on the question difficulty along with its complexity, it will help students know how much time they’re spending on each question and how that time could be lowered much more. 

4. Learn To Solve All Types Of Questions

To succeed in an exam like this, students need to learn to tackle various kinds of questions, which is why practising lots of mock test questions will do the trick.

It’s suggested that students should always start with the questions that are more time consuming and gradually move towards the easier ones. Solving difficult problems is one of the best ways to pass the SSC JE exam as it will help the candidates enjoy greater self-confidence.

5. Create A Time Table For The Exam Preparation

In case students are thinking about how to study for the SSC JE exam, then the first step that needs to be taken is to create a strict timetable for your preparation.

Candidates should be open to modifying the timetable as required later on during the preparation course. More time should be allocated toward difficult chapters and questions.

6. Reading Habits Should Be Developed

Each day, students should allocate some part of their studying time towards reading newspapers, magazines that deal with current affairs, different types of engineering books, and so on.

Candidates should always keep themselves updated with all the significant events that are happening in the country, especially the last six months to one year. Such reading habits will come in useful during the personal interview recruitment round. 

7. Clearing The Basics And Make Revision Notes

If candidates are planning to pass the SSC JE exam in the first attempt, then it’s important to first study the theory behind the concept and then clear out all the basics.

Learning the basics will help the students get an in-depth idea of the same and each concept will be engraved in the minds of the candidates. Moreover, students need to make their revision notes for each chapter, so that the day before the exam, it becomes easy to revise.

8. Ensure To Go Through Past Year Exam Papers

Apart from practicing mock tests regularly, students should also go through past year exam papers and thereby practice them within the stipulated time. It’s recommended that students should try to master the topics that have more weightage than the others.

Going through the past five or ten-year question papers will be enough to get a grip on how the exam takes place and what type of questions are asked. Furthermore, questions are often repeated from previous terms as well.

9. Keep A Note Of The Important Formulas

Learning formulas are just as important as learning theory subjects, especially for the technical subjects where you need to apply shortcuts to get the answer in less time.

The best way to go about this issue is to not only learn the formulas but also note them down into a notebook for the record.

Such a record can be revised anytime before the exams or while practicing questions, which will help in generating a better grip over the syllabus.

10. Improve Writing Skills

It should be remembered that the SSC JE examinations not only consist of objective questions but subjective questions too (in phase two). One of the main reasons why most students fail at this exam is because they have poor writing skills.

Therefore, when writing subjective answers, having good writing skills and presentation is a must. To do this, short notes must be taken regularly and candidates should also attend online lectures on the exam topics, if possible.

Final Thoughts

Passing the SSC JE exam can turn out to be not so difficult if students can follow the above tips to pass the SSC JE exam, in their entirety. Since these types of exams are very competitive, without having a good preparation of the subjects it can turn to be pretty difficult to pass them.

Candidates need to spend time and energy on each subject specifically because not one chapter can be overlooked. Moreover, each concept should be clear in the minds of the reader.
