SSC JE Syllabus for Paper-I

SSC JE 2021 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 on analogies, similarities, differences, space visualization, problem solving, analysis, judgement, 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.
