NTPC Executive Trainee Test: Exam Pattern/Papers/Books


This blog post follows my earlier blog post titled “NTPC ET Recruitment 2011: Notification, Eligibilities & Forms”, which gives you introductory information on the NTPC test as well as “Syllabus for NTPC Executive Trainee Test”, which gives you the NTPC test syllabus.

The focus of this blog post is to help you prepare for the NTPC exam by telling you what the NTPC test pattern is and by giving you the sources to download NTPC model/sample/past years papers. Further, it would also give you the list of available books for preparation of NTPC exam.

At first let us begin this by knowing NTPC written test pattern.


Pattern of NTPC written test:
NTPC written test consists of two papers: Aptitude & Technical. While the questions of Aptitude test is common, questions of the Technical test would depend on which among the six disciplines (Electrical, Mechanical, Civil, Control & Instrumentation, Human Resources & Finance) you belong to.

There are 55 questions in Technical test & 35 in Aptitude – so a total of 90 multiple-choice questions, which needs to be answered in 2 hours. Thus you have 1 min. 20 seconds aprox. to answer each question – the questions as such are not difficult and therefore your main focus would be to answer the questions correctly.
Notes of caution: There is negative marking: 1/4th mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. So if you make a guess, make it wisely!

For Aptitude test the questions asked are of type: Synonyms, Antonyms, Comprehension passages, Word analogies, Fill in the sentences with the most suitable word, Aptitude problem solving skills (train probs, loss profit sums, ratios, etc.).


Sample/model/previous years paper of NTPC written test:
Once you have made up your mind to appear in the NTPC test and have gathered some knowledge about it from above sections, you would naturally like to go for those online sample papers for NTPC test. Where do you find them?

I scouted for those papers on the net and could find following sources where you can find the NTPC test papers to download/view:


Placementpapers.net
Placementpapers have a good collection of NTPC test papers of previous years. Click here to find these NTPC papers.


123eng.com
Another good site where you can find some more NTPC papers is 123eng.com. Click here to find these NTPC papers.

All the above papers should be used with a pinch of salt – I found many of them repeated in more than website and also, for the technical test, where as you can find test papers of Electrical, Mechanical & Electronics were abundant, but papers of other streams is not available.

Therefore, you can use the following books as preparatory material for the NTPC test for Executive Trainees.
