Exam Pattern

SSC JE 2022 is conducted in two papers i.e. paper 1 and paper 2. Paper 1 is an objective paper while Paper 2 is a descriptive paper. Given below is the detailed exam pattern for papers 1 and paper 2:

SSC JE Paper 1 Exam Pattern

  • Paper 1 is a computer-based test having multiple-choice questions.
  • It consists of 3 sections namely General Intelligence and Reasoning, General Awareness, and General Engineering (Civil/ Mechanical/ Electrical).
Papers Subjects Number of Questions Maximum marks Exam duration
Paper 1 – Objective type General Intelligence & Reasoning 50 MCQs 50 marks

Cumulative duration of 2 hours

(2 hours and 40 minutes for those aspirants, who need a scribe)

General Awareness 50 MCQs 50 marks

General Engineering –

  • Part A – Civil & Structural)/
  • Part B (Electrical)/
  • Part C (Mechanical)
100 MCQs 100 marks
Total 3 Subjects 200 MCQs 200 Marks

120 minutes

(160 minutes for those aspirants, who need a scribe)

  • Sections 1 and 2 are the same for each candidate. In section 3, candidates have to choose their respective subjects from Civil/ Mechanical/ Electrical Engineering.
  • Sections 1 and 2 consist of 50 questions each. These sections test the candidate’s ability and knowledge of general reasoning and awareness. Section 3 consists of 100 questions and examines the candidate’s knowledge of the subject chosen from Civil/ Mechanical/ Electrica Engineering.
  • In Paper-1 and Paper-2 for General Engineering, the candidate will be required to attempt only the part as per the option given in the application form filled by the candidate.
  • In other words, the candidates appearing for the post of Junior Engineer (Civil or Quantity Surveying & Contracts) are required to attempt Part-A (Civil & Structural Engineering)
  • Candidates appearing for the post of Junior Engineer (Electrical) are required to attempt Part-B (Electrical Engineering)
  • Candidates appearing for the post of Junior Engineer (Mechanical) are required to attempt Part-C (Mechanical Engineering)
  • There is a negative marking of 0.25 marks per wrong answer.

SSC JE Paper 2 Exam Pattern

  • Paper 2 is a descriptive paper conducted in pen and paper mode.
  • Candidates have to attempt a question paper of 300 marks in 2 hours.
  • Paper 2 is a conventional type exam, candidates have to choose the subject from Part A- Civil & Structural Engineering, Part B- Electrical Engineering, or Part C- Mechanical Engineering.
  • Candidates are allowed to bring their own Slide–Rule, Calculator, Logarithm Table, and Steam Table for Paper-2.
  • There is no negative marking applicable in Paper 2.
Paper Subjects Maximum marks Exam duration & time
Paper 2 – Descriptive Type Part A – General Engineering(Civil and Structural) OR
Part B – General Engineering(Electrical) OR
Part C – General Engineering(Mechanical)
