As the candidates begin to enrol themselves for the SSC Junior Examination 2017, various questions will begin to arise in their mind. Some of the most common ones are- What questions will be asked? Which subjects should I study? What is the exam pattern?
These questions can be easily answered if a candidate is able to understand the requirements of the exam and its pattern.
Mentioned below is the SSC JE exam pattern 2017 which is followed by the SSC authority to conduct its examination for Junior Engineer. The SSC JE (Paper-I) exam will be held on 5,6,7th January 2018 and Paper-II on 1st April 2018.

The exam pattern is based on two levels. A candidate is required to clear all these two levels inorder to achieve the seat of a junior engineer. The first and the second level, combined, compromises of 500 marks.
When it comes to selecting the right candidate, the accumulated marks are taken into consideration. Level I and II are together combined as written test. To sum up, one can put the exam pattern of SCC JE Exam 2017 as:
Selection will be based on the total marks in the Paper-I & II.
Paper I – Computer Test: This test is based upon testing the academic knowledge of a candidate. It is segregated into two sections- Objective type and Conventional Type. The objective type exam is the first level and carries 200 marks which is divided amongst subjects such as Intelligence and Reasoning, General Awareness and General Engineering (Electrical/ Civil & Structural / Mechanical).
Paper – II – Written Test: On the other hand, the Conventional type exam is a single paper carrying 300 marks in the subject chosen by the candidate- Electrical/ Civil & Structural/ Mechanical.

It should be noted that, candidates who have cleared Objective Type Paper will only be allowed to sit for the conventional type paper. In the first level, use of calculators or any other assistance device is strictly prohibited, but during the conventional type paper candidate may be allowed to take the necessary devices for computation. The decision lies in the hands of the authority.
In paper-II candidates can bring their own Slide-Rule, Calculator, Logarithm Tables and Steam Table. But in paper-I these gadgets are not allowed.
The objective section will deal with engineering related questions, but at very primary level. When a candidate moves on to next level, that is, Conventional type paper then the questions become tougher and candidates would be required to deliver their best performance.
As an advice, always prefer to answer the question paper as per your convenience. For an instance, if you are confident about your subject, then begin by answering questions related to engineering. In this way you will be able to gain confidence and have extra time in hand for the remaining sections.
