Level of questions are expected to be moderate so high-level questions should not be considered.

Important Books:

For technical SSC JE previous yearbook or any specific book having objective questions can be referred. For non-technical part-specific books are not available but mainly environment and ecology part can be covered with the help of Wikipedia and NCERT, basic information for computer and programs can be covered from class 10thlevel CBSE books.

Every student must have 10 minutes in their hand to revise the questions attempted. It is advised that the students attempt the non-technical part prior to technical part as this will consume less time. 

Tackling negative marking:

After this, they can work on the numericals but numerical based questions should be given second priority after direct theory questions as they consume more time. 

Revision strategy:
