Last Minute Preparation Tips For SSC JHT Exam

SSC JHT Exam Preparation Tips

The JHT (Junior Hindi Translator) exam is conducted by the SSC (Staff Selection Commission) every year to recruit individuals for the post of Senior Hindi Translator, Junior Translator, and Hindi Pradhyapak. The exam is conducted in two phases, and Paper I of the JHT exam is scheduled to be conducted on 26th Nov 2019. With the exam nearing its scheduled date, here are some last-minute preparation tips for all candidates:


  1. Firstly, you need to know that Paper I is an online test consisting of general Hindi and English questions lasting for 2 hours. Each section consists of 100 questions and is of 100 marks each. Each correct answer carries 1 mark and each wrong answer carries a penalty of 0.25. So, if you are less than one month away from the exam, make sure you focus on the language you are stronger in, in this case, either English or Hindi.

  2. The syllabus in Hindi consists of the following topics: Grammatical Topics i.e. Samas, Sandhi, Kriya, Visheshan, etc., Hindi Synonyms, Hindi Paragraphs, Hindi Proverbs, Hindi Antonyms, Hindi Spellings (vartani). So, make use of the time that you have in hand to brush up your grammar skills in Hindi. It would be wise to not start learning something new in the little time you have and rather use it to revise what you already know.

  3. Learn the basics of translation and keep going through the Hindi-English dictionary as much as possible. Keep updating your vocabulary in Hindi every day and learn difficult translations. 

  4. The syllabus in English consists of the following topics: Error Recognition, Articles, Verbs, Preposition, Spelling Test, Vocabulary, Grammar, Synonyms, Sentence Structure, Antonyms, Sentence Completion, Correct use of Words, Phrases and Idioms, Reading Comprehension. Again, brush up your English grammar skills. Keep solving various verbal ability questions every day so that you don’t break the flow of practice.

  5. Learn easy tricks for Hindi translation. Hindi has a lot of borrowed words from Sanskrit, Persian, Arabic and the like. Many times, the punctuation used in sentences can also enable you to simplify the process of translation. So, make sure you learn easy tricks of translation.

  6. Keep practicing SSC online tests  for the JHT exam every single day in the last month of your exam. This will help you to improve speed and accuracy and help you adapt easier to the actual exam environment.


Practicing online mock tests every day is the best way to prepare yourself for any competitive exam. You can also make use of the expert career guidance available on the Glow & Lovely Careers (formerly known as Fair & Lovely Career Foundation) in order to decide which particular profile to apply to.
