SSC CHSL Last Minute Tips

Proper time management

Manage the time within sections effectively. Refrain from getting stuck on one question. You will have a total of 60 minutes, so utilize them efficiently. 

Take care of your order of attempt

Attempt the easy questions (topics you’re comfortable with) first and then move on to some of the difficult ones. This will help you gain confidence and thus, boost your performance.

Do NOT study too much in the last few days

It is important to have a fresh mind to perform well in the exam. Do NOT study too much during these last few days. Try to get at least 8 hours of sleep before the exam day. This is important in order to keep your mind fresh during exam time.

Avoid all last-minute stress

Reach the exam centre well before the stipulated time and carry all the relevant documents. This will not only make you reach early but will also avoid the panic at the last minute.

SSC CHSL Last Minute Tips for Exam

Stick to the order of sections 

If you have been solving mock tests by following a certain order of sections that you attempt, stick to that. Do not change it. Build confidence by attempting the easy ones first. The confidence will create positive momentum for you to do well over the 60 minutes.

Keep the difficult and time-consuming questions in each section for the end

Build confidence by attempting the easy ones in each section first. The confidence will create positive momentum for you to do well over the 60 minutes.

Do not get stuck on any question

Give yourself a cut-off of, let’s say 60-75 seconds, and if any question takes more than that, leave it and you can return in case you have time. Remember, every question carries the same weightage within a section, so do not waste time on one question only.

Do not make blind guesses

There is negative marking and hence be judicious on questions where you decide to mark an option without knowing the correct answer. You can choose to make educated guesses (or guesses after eliminating 2-3 incorrect options) but we do not recommend blind guesses.
