1. Create a schedule

This point may seem very obvious, but it becomes very easy to clear SSAT once you create a schedule and adhere to it. When creating a schedule, start by jotting down the SSAT date. Once you have confirmed your SSAT date, you can then start by segregating the topics and studying the subjects for at least 2-3 hours a day.

2. Download the sample paper and study material

The best part of clearing SSAT is that we give you the study material to prepare on the different topics of SSAT. The sample paper is available on the website and you can download the study material from the dashboard after registering. Thoroughly practising the sample papers will help you get an idea of what is SSAT. This will help you understand the type of questions that were asked in the previous rounds of SSAT.

3. Stay updated with current affairs in sports

You need to brush up on your basics of Class XII- Physics, Chemistry & Biology. Since there is a dedicated type of question related to the History of Sports/Acts/Laws(General Knowledge) & Sports intellect, it is recommended to stay updated with current developments in the sporting world.

4. Answer the questions you know first

When you are giving the exam, always make it a point to answer the question that you know at the beginning. This will save some crucial time and help you focus on the difficult questions afterwards.

5. Do not leave any questions unanswered

The biggest reason why we advise you to not leave any questions unanswered is that there is no negative marking. So even if your answer is wrong, you won’t lose the marks you’ve gained by answering the right ones.

6. Attend the mock exam and be better prepared

You can give one mock exam before appearing for the final SSAT exam. So be better prepared for it. Also, when you attend the mock exam, you will get an idea of what types of questions are asked and how much time it will take for you to clear the exam. You can also view how well you have performed in the mock test as we display your marks at the end of the mock test.
