SSC JE Syllabus for Paper-I

SSC JE 2022 Paper 1 is conducted in the online mode and has three sections which are mentioned below:
(i). General Intelligence and Reasoning
(ii). General Awareness
(iii). General Engineering

(i) SSC JE Syllabus for General Intelligence & Reasoning

SSC covers both verbal and non-verbal type questions in General Intelligence & Reasoning section. The test will be based on analogies, similarities, differences, space visualization, problem-solving, analysis, judgment, decision making, visual memory, discrimination, observation, relationship concepts, arithmetical reasoning, verbal and figure classification, arithmetical number series, etc topics. 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) SSC JE Syllabus for General Awareness

Questions asked in this section 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 neighboring countries especially pertaining to History, Culture, Geography, Economic Scene, General Polity, Scientific Research, etc. These questions will be such that they do not require a special study of any discipline.
