SSC JE Syllabus 2016 – Complete Subject wise Syllabus

The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) conducts the SSC JE Exam for the recruitment of Junior Engineers in various government departments. Thousands of candidates appear for this examination every year, giving rise to a stiff competition. The aspirants must thus be well aware of the examination pattern and syllabus and prepare accordingly. This article will provide the SSC JE Syllabus 2016 for the candidates appearing for the SSC JE Exam this year.

Examination Pattern

It is important to know the exam pattern since the knowledge of the examination pattern will help you in tackling the questions more effectively and thereby increase your chances of cracking this examination. Recruitment through this examination is essentially a two stage process, the two stages being:

  1. Written Examination
  2. Personal Interview

The pattern of the Written Examination is as follows:

2 hours

For each wrong answer in Paper I, there will be a negative marking of 0.25 marks. There will be no negative marking in paper II. Paper-II (Conventional Type) will be evaluated only for those candidates who qualify Paper I. The candidates who clear the minimum cutoff of both the papers will be eligible for the Interview which will carry 100 marks.

Those candidates who qualify the Written Examination are eligible for the Interview round of the SSC JE Exam. A merit list is then drawn out by the SSC taking into account the scores of both the levels and then the final recruitment is done accordingly.

SSC JE Syllabus 2016
