SSC MTS 2022 Quantitative Aptitude Preparation Strategy

The SSC MTS Syllabus 2022 for Quantitative Aptitude is vast therefore, many students from non-maths backgrounds feel very nervous. There is nothing impossible if you desire to learn therefore, we will discuss the preparation strategy for a few important topics and strategies to master them. 

Ratio & Proportion

This topic is very important because it is used as a base for other topics like Profit & Loss, Simple Interest & Compound Interest, Mixture & Allegation, Time work and Ages, Time, Speed & Distance, and Percentage. If you are really good at handling ratio & proportion then it becomes easy for you to attempt other topics as well, which we have mentioned above. 

You can take the help of the NCERT book of 10th and 12th to prepare this topic. Apart from this follow our notes and quizzes.


Geometry is a vast topic as it has many subtopics like the triangle, circle, ellipse, parabola etc. Don’t get panic because we just have to focus on those topics which are asked in SSC MTS exam. 1 or 2 questions are asked from triangles so focus on it. From other topics in geometry, questions are usually not asked in SSC MTS exam so once you are done with your syllabus and left with some time then read other topics from geometry.


For most of the students, this topic is very challenging. For this topic just practice questions that are asked in CPO, GD Constable, CGL & CHSL papers because there are chances of repetition of questions in your exam. You can practice from NCERT books and build up your basics.


One or two very easy questions are asked from this topic and you can easily master this topic. Solve previous year's questions and you will find how easy they are.

Profit & Loss

2 to 3 questions are asked on this topic and they are mostly formula based. You just need to learn formulas and their applications. 

The next problem is how to practice maximum questions and overcome exam fear?

Here is the answer:

  • We have uploaded the list of Mini Mocks to help you prepare for quantitative aptitude and reasoning ability. Solve the topic-wise quizzes and then practice the previous year's questions of the SSC MTS 2022 exam just to check if you are able to solve questions on that topic or not. If yes then there are fair chances that you will solve questions of that topic in your real exam also but if no then polish your weak topic and try to solve questions. 
  • Do not forget to solve the Previous Years' Papers for SSC MTS because many students work really hard for the SSC MTS exam but they don’t practice & end up losing a chance to get a government job. Practising more and more questions is very important in the SSC MTS exam because you have to solve 100 questions in 90 minutes. You should know how to manage your time for each section.
