The question in this will be asked from both verbal non-verbal questions. In this section, questions will be asked from similarities between figures, mirror and water images, analogies, differences between images, image pattern visualization, problem-solving questions, conclusion & judgment, decision making questions, questions based on Dices, clock-based questions, discrimination between the numbers & series, relationship-based questions, arithmetical reasoning questions, verbal and images classification, arithmetical & numbers series, etc.  

In this section, some questions will be designed to check student's abilities to deal with different ideas, images pattern, symbols, and relationships between them, arithmetical questions, and other analytical functions based questions.

  • General Awareness
From this section's question examiner wants to test the students' General Awareness of the surrounding around him or her. Questions will also be asked to examine the student's knowledge of Current Affairs and everyday matters, observations, and new inventions in the scientific field around them.

Preparation Tips and Best Strategy for SSC JE 2020

A. Proceed Through Your Syllabus

Know the need, importance for each and every topic from an examinations viewpoint. Giving more time on problems, topics, subjects that carry more weight-age is very important and very crucial. 

By going through the syllabus you will see the topics which carry more weightage and hence it is important for your selection and you have to pay more attention to those topics or subjects.

B. Allot Time Properly During Exam

The SSC JE Exam consist of a total of 200 questions and the total time given to answer these questions is 120 minutes or 2 hours. General Intelligence & Reasoning, G.A (General Awareness) total consists of 100 questions, in the G.A part if you know the answer then you just mark, there will be no questions that take your time or you don't have solved. 

So, try to complete the Non-Technical Section before 60 minutes and give the rest of the time to solve the technical questions. 

While preserving precision during answering questions inside of half-a-minute is simpler in the G.A section questions, it's really a bit catchy in the Non-Technical part.

C. Improve your Time Management Skills

Time management is just one of the absolute most important key elements while preparing for this exam. Keep a balance between precision and speed that is genuinely very important.

Start out solving the questions within a time-bound way. This wants a whole lot of practice, training. You have to learn, update, and revise the related concepts and theories.

D. Solve Previous Year's Paper

Split your preparation into two stages - numerical questions & theory-based questions. SSC JE Exam consists of 70-80 % theoretical based questions and 20-30% numerical based questions. The theoretical questions are based on the facts or concepts only if you know the facts then answers or just leave this will save your time. 

E. Attempt Test Series 

Whenever you're attempting a test series for SSC JE, then your purpose needs to really be to minimize your time period according to difficulty level and also with accuracy. After attempting test series do a proper analyzing your result. Find the type of questions in which you are giving more time to solve, then revise the concepts and remove your weakness. 

Create a plan while attempting these hard questions, then firstly attempt those questions in which you are a 100% convinced of, and subsequently solve the questions in which you are 50 percent convinced of after which skip, bypass the questions which you are not certain during attempting the SSC JE test paper.

I hope this informative short article about how SSC JE will support you on your preparation for SSC JE Electrical, SSC JE Civil along with SSC JE Mechanical. So start your preparation from today and study hard.
