SSC JE 2019 Paper-I (CBE) Exam Pattern and Syllabus


Staff Selection Commission (SSC) conducts the examination for recruitment of Junior Engineers (JE) Group-’B’ posts in Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, Quantity Surveying and Contract domain. The candidates are supposed to undergo two stages of SSC JE selection procedure, i.e., Paper – I and Paper-I. This year SSC JE Paper – I 2019 Exam will be conducted in online mode tentatively from 23rd September 2019 to 27th September 2019 and will be a Computer Based Exam (CBE). Eligible candidates can start filling the application form from 1st Feb 2019 to 25th Feb 2019.

Exam Pattern of SSC Junior Engineer (JE) 2019 Paper – I (CBE)

Sections : General Intelligence & Reasoning
Maximum Marks : 50

Sections : General Awareness
Maximum Marks : 50

Sections : General Engineering (Civil and Structural), (Electrical & Mechanical)Part A- General Engineering (Civil & Structural) or Part B- General Engineering (Electrical) or Part C- General Engineering (Mechanical)
Maximum Marks : 100


SSC JE Paper – I 2019 Exam will be a Computer Based Exam (CBE).
Paper-I will consist of Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs)
0.25 marks will be deducted for every question attempted wrong by a candidate in both the papers.
As per the recent Exam Pattern, candidates appearing for the post of JE (Civil), JE (Quantity Surveying & Contract) should attempt Part A (civil & structural) of paper I & II.
Also, candidates appearing for JE (Electrical) need to attempt Part B (Electrical) & the candidates appearing for JE (Mechanical) need to attempt Part C (Mechanical) of Paper I & II.

Syllabus of SSC Junior Engineer (JE) 2019 Paper – I

The standard of the questions in Engineering subjects will be approximately of the level of Diploma in Engineering (Civil/ Electrical/ Mechanical/Electronics) from a recognized Institute, Board or University recognized by All India Board of Technical Education. All the questions will be set in SI units. The details of the syllabus are given below:

1. General Intelligence & Reasoning:

The Syllabus for General Intelligence would include questions of both verbal and non-verbal type. The test may include questions on analogies, similarities, differences, space visualization, problem solving, analysis, judgement, decision making, visual memory, discrimination, observation, relationship concepts, arithmetical reasoning, verbal and figure classification, arithmetical number series etc. The test will also include questions designed to test the candidate’s abilities to deal with abstract ideas and symbols and their relationships, arithmetical computations and other analytical functions.
