Tip 1: Best way to practice Mocks with OMR
Filling your answers is as important as answering them correctly. While all the aspirants practice mock tests, only few practice it with OMR sheets. And even fewer must be practicing it with the New Format OMR by SSC.
This is the biggest mistake which even we did as rookies.
A statement from Manish Kumar, Examiner, CGL13 batch in his own words:
“I used to mark the answers on the practice question paper and evaluate it there only. Why? Because I was not having any OMR sheet format with me. So, while I was stupidly happy in getting good score, my actual score in my first attempt suffered by atleast (-)10 marks as I was not factoring the 10-12 minutes required to fill my responses on the OMR sheet.”
Sadly, most coaching centers conducting Mock tests are using outdated and obsolete OMR sheets while SSC uses a different OMR pattern.Eg: SSC’s OMR has perfect circles for answers while the coaching centers uses Oval circles. This looks like a very small thing, but use both sheets in two different tests and you will realize the difference. Why not use the actual format and be comfortable instead of adopting 2 different formats?
So, here is a little secret sharing from SSCtube; SSC has uploaded actual OMR sheet this time. Please download it, get a printout and 20-30 photocopies of that print out (the entire exercise will cost you only Rs.20 and you can get it done in your regular trips to market) and use this in your mock practice. The OMRs by some coaching centers are different from that of SSC. So, download the official OMR format in PDF format from this link and use it for every mock you attempt now.
