The candidates should prepare all the topics mentioned in the syllabus to score better in the SSC MTS exam. The paper-I of the exam is conducted as a Computer-Based Exam (CBE). The candidates need to prepare all types of questions based on the topics mentioned in the SSC MTS syllabus. For the candidates, the syllabus should be the guiding force for the preparation. SSC MTS 2022 exam will be conducted from July 5 to 22 across the nation in multiple shifts.

The candidates need to prepare the syllabus for all stages of the exam fully to clear all the stages of the exam process. Though the official notification mentions the names of the topics but it does not mention any weightage of the topics. It is the previous years' question papers which inform about the level of the questions in the paper. The syllabus analysed in the light of the previous years' question papers is the best guide for preparation. The official notification only mentions the indicative syllabus for both papers. It only mentions the topic names and the candidates are expected to prepare the subtopics also.

There are two papers in the SSC MTS exam - paper-I (computer-based exam) and paper-II (descriptive test). Moreover, the candidates opting for the Havaldar post will have to undergo the Physical Efficiency Test (PET)/Physical Standard Test (PST).  SSC MTS syllabus for both papers remains largely the same every year.
