SSC JE 2019 Exam Preparation Tips - Paper I

 

Paper I consist of three parts. General Intelligence & Reasoning for 50 marks, General Awareness for 50 marks, and General Engineering for 100 marks.

  • General Intelligence & Reasoning - Solve previous year questions. If you are able to solve them, no special preparation is required.

  • General Awareness - Check your level by solving previous year questions. Most of the questions are from Indian History, Culture, Geography, Economic Scene, General Polity (For these you can even refer to NCERT Books) and current affairs (Staying updated is the only way). Your objective here is not to score all 50 marks. Try to grab more marks with the time you have left for preparation after covering Civil Engineering subjects.

  • General Engineering - Questions are mostly fact based. You will have questions like which test is suitable for workability, and at the same time you will have a question like what is snoweem (Is it chalk powder, colored cement like that). So, accordingly the more facts you know, the better it is. Even once if you have seen somewhere what is snoeeem you will be able to answer this question. Concentrate on knowing more such facts.
