How to Prepare for TISSNET 2019

  • Time Table Management: Six months is a good amount of time to excel in TISSNET, provided you are honest and dedicated to achieving your goal. Keeping your weaknesses and strengths in mind, you should create a timetable to devote time to each subject.
  • Important Key Concepts: Candidates appearing for TISSNET should know that not all topics carry equal weightage of marks. Some subjects carry more marks, while others questions don’t. It is recommended to devote more time to such important topics.
  • Allocate more time to GK. If you do not prepare well for GK, it will be difficult for you to crack TISSNET and PIT (Pre-Interview Test).
  • Make a habit of reading the newspaper daily for social, political and your syllabus relevant news. Reading news also means  that you will not have to prepare separately for Reading Comprehension.
  • It is indeed important for you to clear your concepts and have a proper understanding of each topic/chapter. Also, to keep your preparation on track, you must also make notes while studying for the exam.
  • Take more and more mock tests to check your preparation level. Analyse every mock that you take and take it as an example to work on your weak areas.
  • The more you solve the previous year question papers, the better understanding you get about attempting the final exam. Solving previous year question papers will not only give you an insight about the exam but will also make you confident on the day of the exam. Previous year question papers will also give you an idea of the frequent questions asked in the exam from various topics.
  • By solving sample papers, you will know the existing pattern and have a fair idea of the type of questions that come in the paper along with the time constraint.
  • The revision will help your recall all the topics studied along with grasping new concepts. 

Important Instructions

  • Visually challenged candidates appearing for the test must bring their writers along with them.
  • All the examination halls/rooms have a wall clock as the candidates are not allowed to wear any type of watch in the examination hall/room.
  • The use of calculators or Log Tables is not permitted. Mobile phones, pagers, electronic devices, bits of paper, books/notebooks etc. are not allowed in the Examination Hall/Room. The candidate(s) found in possession of any of these items in the examination hall/room will be treated as unfair means and his/her result will not be declared.
  • The candidates have to follow the instructions given by the invigilators in the examination hall/room and should not argue with the invigilators or other staff involved in the examination duty at the examination center. 
  • TISS reserves the right to make changes in the notified Admission Test schedule.
