SSC JE Exam 2019 Syllabus Electrical Engineering Paper-1 & Paper-2

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:

SSC JE Syllabus Electrical Paper-1 (Objective Type)

(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.

(iii)General Engineering (Electrical):

Basic concepts, Circuit law, Magnetic Circuit, AC Fundamentals, Measurement and Measuring instruments, Electrical Machines, Fractional Kilowatt Motors and single-phase induction Motors, Synchronous Machines, Generation, Transmission and Distribution, Estimation and Costing, Utilization and Electrical Energy, Basic Electronics.
