Check-out the distribution of topics in SSC JE syllabus with a proper strategy for Paper-1 below:

  1. General Intelligence and Reasoning: It mainly consists of some basic topics like visual memory, analysis, and judgment, analogies, decision making, number system, etc.


  • Think rationally and logically,
  • Practice solving more and more questions,
  • Solve mock tests to increase speed and your chance to get this job
  • Try to relate these types of questions to your daily life.


2             General Awareness: Under this section, the topic consists of Geography, History, Polity,   Economics, Scientific Research, etc.

  • Current affairs are the pillar of this section, grab a newspaper and read it thoroughly,
  • Make short notes of each topic to read at the last moment,
  • Do not read so many books, but a particular book again and again for a subject,
  • Read previous year question paper to understand the demand of the paper,
  • Give mock tests on a regular basis.


  1.           General Engineering: This includes some specific topics pertaining to Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, Candidates have to appear in either one of the streams of it. Each stream of this section consists of different syllabus and strategy:
  • Part A: Civil Engineering: Building materials, Estimating, Costing and Valuation, Surveying, etc.
  • 70-80% syllabus is theoretical in nature so better to focus more on theory,
  • 20% time can be given to the numerical based questions.
  • Part B: Electrical Engineering: Basic concepts, Circuit law, Magnetic circuit, AC fundamental, etc.
  • 15% paper will be based on Measurement and measuring instruments and it is going to be mixed with theory and numerical, practice it to get more marks,
  • Questions from power systems are tricky but one can solve by practicing,
  • Solve more mock tests to clear it.
  • Part C: Mechanical Engineering: Theory of Machine and machine design, engineering mechanics and strength of materials, etc.
  • 80% questions will be theoretically based so your main focus should be on theory,
  • Remaining 20% will be numerically based, for which practice is needed,
  • Try to solve more mock test for numerical,
