Q5 . Can I take other examinations at the same time as the SSC MTS?
No, you cannot. You can only appear for one exam at a time. However, keep in mind that the SSC MTS is usually conducted only in January and February (the months of January and February). So, you will not have much time to prepare for it. Therefore, it is best to start preparing as early as possible to be ready in case of an unexpected exam.

Q8 . What are the cut-off and the average score in the SSC MTS?
The cut-off in the SSC MTS depends on the number of candidates who have applied for the exam. The officials will then take into consideration your rank, score, and how long you have been an aspirant. They will then fix a cut-off based on all these specific criteria. This cut-off is called “Seats Allotted” and it is fixed before they conduct the exam. For example, if there are 3 lakh kids who have applied for the SSC MTS and you have an aggregate score of 50, you will get a seat in the exam because your score is above the cut-off. However, if there are only 2.5 lakh applicants who have applied for the exam, then everybody would get a seat in it irrespective of their aggregate score and rank. This part is completely random and depends on many factors (such as how many candidates have applied for it).
Q9 . How many marks do I need to score in the SSC MTS to get admission to an IIT?
It is not possible to give a cut-off for each IIT because that depends on many factors (such as how many seats have been available, whether there be any NRI seats, and so on). However, you can check the official website of SSC every year to get an idea about it.

The duration of each one of the two parts usually lasts 6 hours. The first part is divided into 3 sections: Verbal Ability, General Awareness and Reasoning section, and the second part is divided into 4 sections: Quantitative Ability, General Studies, Analytical Ability (Logical Reasoning), and Research Ability section. The questions in each of these sections are asked in different ways. For example, there will be no direct question on Quantitative Ability in the General Studies section. If you are good at remembering facts and figures, then you can do well here.
Q12. Can I appear for both Part I and Part II in a single year?
Yes, you can. Just register for one exam (Part I or II) at a time and take both exams at the same time of the year that you have registered for them. You cannot appear for the Part II exam if you have taken the SSC MTS in the last 12 months.
Q13. Which are the most topics covered in the exam?
