" The revised SSC MTS exam pattern 2022 includes changes in its paper 2 essay writing and physical efficiency test. Cycling, earlier compulsory in PET, is now eliminated from the pattern."
SSC MTS Exam Pattern 2022: The Staff Selection Commission revised the MTS 2022 exam pattern for its second paper and Physical efficiency test (PET). The SSC notified of the change through a corrigendum on October 21. The SSC MTS Paper 2 is usually a descriptive paper, held in pen and paper mode, which remains the same. For paper 2, candidates must produce a short essay or letter in their preferred language (included in the 8th Schedule of the Indian Constitution). The paper is for a duration of 45 minutes, although the writing time for the essay has been reduced to 30 minutes and 40 minutes for scribes-eligible candidates. Earlier, the writing time for the essay was 45 minutes, as per the old SSC MTS exam pattern 2022.

On the other hand, SSC has also altered the Physical Efficiency test pattern. With the new PET pattern, the requirement for cycling is eliminated. Hence, making qualifications for SSC MTS PET 2022 easy. Per the revised SSC MTS Exam Pattern 2022, male candidates must cover a walking distance of 1600 metres in 15 minutes, whereas females must cover 1 kilometre in 20 minutes.
Previously, SSC MTS candidates had to cycle for 8 kilometres in 8 minutes, which proved to be a complex task for many participants. Earlier this year, the notification was published on March 22 regarding the Multi-tasking (non-technical) staff and Havaldar (CBIC and CBN) exams. All candidates must note the present SSC MTS exam pattern 2022.
