SSC JE 2017 exam has scheduled on four different days. The last day of the exam was conducted on March 4, 2017 in two shifts. The overall difficulty level of the paper was moderate. SSC JE paper was divided into three sections which are General Awareness, General Intelligence/ Reasoning and Technical section. It consisted of 200 questions and was objective in nature. Each question carried one mark and 0.25 mark would be deducted for every wrong answer. Candidates had to solve the paper in two hours. Staff Selection Commission conducts SSC JE examination every year for the post of Junior Engineer in various disciplines. Check the SSC JE answer key, question paper and analysis in this article.

SSC JE Section-Wise Analysis

There were total 100 questions in the technical section and 50 questions in General Reasoning & 50 questions in General Awareness section.

General Intelligence & Reasoning

The level of the reasoning section was easy to moderate. Most of the candidates find this section was moderate level. If the candidates had practiced some questions on logical reasoning, then this section will prove to be scoring for them. The questions were covered from number series, statement, analogy, direction & distance, blood relation, matrix etc.

No. Of Question

General Awareness

Current affairs contained highest weightage in general awareness section. The difficulty level of this section was moderate to difficult. The questions based on computer fundamentals and political science were quite easy to attempt. Given below is the analysis of this section.

Technical section

The technical section was divided into three subjects i.e. Mechanical/ Electrical and Civil Engineering. It comprised 100 questions in the SSC JE question paper. Here is the complete analysis of the general engineering section in SSC JE 2017.

Civil Engineering

RCC Design and Steel design was the new topic in the exam and was not mentioned in the SSC JE syllabus. In Building material topic, most of the questions were asked from Timber & Paints. The Surveying topics was a mixture of numerical and theoretical. In surveying, the questions were based on linear measurement, principles, levelling, angular measurement, contouring, tachometric survey etc. The questions from strength materials were calculative & time-consuming and were based on column, SFD, principle stress, strings etc. Candidates required knowledge in depth for answering the questions of estimating, costing and evaluation.
