SSC Junior Engineer Syllabus For Civil, Electrical, Mechanical Engineering
SSC JE Syllabus 2014
Syllabus for SSC Junior Engineers Recruitment 2014 Paper-I
The standard of the questions in Engineering subjects will be approximately of the level of
Diploma in Engineering (Civil/ Electrical/ Mechanical) 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:
(i) 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.
(ii) General Awareness: Questions will be aimed at testing the candidate‘s general awareness of
the environment around him/her and its application to society. Questions will also be designed to test
knowledge of current events and of such matters of everyday observations and experience in their
scientific aspect as may be expected of any educated person. The test will also include questions
relating to India and its neighbouring countries especially pertaining to History, Culture, Geography,
Economic Scene, General Polity and Scientific Research, etc. These questions will be such that they
do not require a special study of any discipline.
