To hire suitable engineers as Junior Engineers for various government departments of Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Quantity Surveying and Contract, etc., the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) conducts every year a competition exam at national level. As millions of engineering students write the SSC-JE exam, the competition is getting tougher every year. This calls for preparation for this all-India level recruitment examination in a serious as well as meticulously planned manner.
Exam Pattern of SSC-JE Exam
The SSC-JE examination includes two papers – Paper-I and Paper-II.
Paper-I consists of three sections – General Intelligence and Reasoning, General Awareness, and Technical section (Civil Engineering or Electrical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering). Each section of Paper-I is computer-based test (CBT), and consists of objective questions.
The Paper I of SSC-JE carries 200 marks with a total duration of 2 hours. The breakup of marks for the respective sections is as below:
General Intelligence and Reasoning (50 questions) – 50 marks
General Awareness (50 questions) – 50 marks
Technical (100 questions) – 100 marks
- Part A- General Engineering (Civil and Structural) or
- Part B- General Engineering (Electrical) or
- Part C- General Engineering (Mechanical)
Each question is of 1 mark, and for every wrong answer, there is a negative marking of 0.25 marks. Candidates have the option of choosing from Civil/Electrical/Mechanical Engineering stream in General Engineering section.
Only those candidates, who clear the Paper I of SSC-JE, are qualified to write Paper II. Paper-II consists of only one section i.e. General Engineering from Civil & Structural, or Electrical, or Mechanical engineering. Paper-II carries 300 marks with a total duration of 2 hours.
Importance of SSC-JE Mains Online/Offline Test Series
Engineering students who have cleared the SSC-JE Paper-I that was conducted from 23 September to 27 September, 2019 will be writing the SSC-JE Mains exam i.e. Paper-II on 29 December, 2019. The Mains stage would also be a crucial stage of SSC-JE exam as on the basis of a candidate’s performance in both SSC-JE Paper-I and Paper-II, one would be called for the final stage i.e. Document Verification.
The final selection and allocation of Ministries/ Departments will be made by SSC on the basis of the performance of candidates in Paper-I + Paper-II, and the preference of Posts/ Departments exercised by them during Document Verification stage. However, the marks obtained in Paper-II can play a significant role in a candidate’s final selection if more than one candidate secure the equal aggregates marks in Paper-I + Paper-II. In such a scenario, the tie will be resolved by applying the following methods one after another:
(i) Total marks in Paper-II.
(ii) Date of birth, with older candidates placed higher.
(iii) Alphabetical order of the names of the candidates.
Therefore, one should prepare for the SSC-JE Mains stage more seriously, and try his level best to score the maximum marks.
If you are one among those engineering students who are going to appear in the SSC-JE Mains exam, and looking for expert guidance to sail past this stage smoothly then they should take on the SSC-JE Online or Offline Test Series.
