  • Focus on your strengths and weaknesses: Identify your strengths and weaknesses and allocate more time to the subjects you are weaker in.
  • Practice mental math: Mental math skills are important for the MTS exam as some questions may require you to do calculations quickly. Practice mental math to improve your speed and accuracy.
  • Take mock tests: Taking mock tests will help you understand your strengths and weaknesses and identify the areas where you need to improve. It will also help you get used to the exam format and improve your time management skills.
  • Stay updated: Keep yourself updated about current affairs and general knowledge as these topics are included in the MTS exam. You can read newspapers, watch news channels, and follow online sources for this purpose.
