                                 SYLLABUS

The level of questions in Engineering subjects for the upcoming SSC JE (Staff Selection Commission Junior Engineer) exam will be equivalent to that of a Diploma in Engineering (Civil/Electrical/Mechanical) from a recognized institute, board, or university acknowledged by the All India Board of Technical Education.

SSC has made changes to the exam pattern, and this year both Paper 1 and Paper 2 of the SSC JE exam will be conducted in online mode, specifically as a Computer-Based Test (CBT). This transition to online testing aims to streamline the examination process and provide a more efficient and standardized assessment platform for candidates.

 

Candidates preparing for the SSC JE exam should familiarize themselves with the online testing format to ensure they can navigate the interface smoothly on the day of the exam. Additionally, they should focus on understanding the core concepts and principles of their respective engineering disciplines to effectively tackle the questions that will be presented in the exam.
