IES Exam (Electrical) Pattern, Syllabus, Papers & Books


UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) is likely to bring out the IES exam 2013 notification on 16th March, details about which can be found in my previous blog post titled: IES 2015 Notification, Form & Eligibility That post tells you about the notification, what are the eligibility for IES exam as well as where to find those forms.

The purpose of this blog post is to help those Electrical Engineers who would appear in this IES exam, with study materials for the IES exam - Pattern, Syllabus, Papers & Books.

Although this blog post is made for IES-2013 exam, aspirants of even the future IES exam would find the contents useful – the materials - Pattern, Syllabus, Sample papers & Books can also be used as study materials for IES exam 2014, IES exam 2015 as well as future IES exams as a major change is very less likely to happen.

IES Exam (Electrical) Pattern
IES Exam Pattern for Electrical Engineers:
IES exam consists of a total 1200 mark selection process, which consists of a written test for 1000 marks and a 200 mark Interview for those shortlisted. Out of the total 1000 marks in the written test, 600 marks are for Objective test and 400 marks for Conventional test.

Plan of IES written test along with mark distribution paper-wise is given below:
IES Objective Test Papers: 600 marks
General Ability Test: 2 hrs duration: 200 marks
Electrical Engineering Paper I: 2 hrs duration: 200 marks
Electrical Engineering Paper II: 2 hrs duration: 200 marks
General Ability Test consists of: Part A: General English & Part B: General Studies.
There are 120 questions in each of the above three papers – thus you have one minute for each question of average worth 1.67 marks.

Objective type test consists of multiple-choice questions with four options, in which you have to choose the correct option and mark the same in the answer booklet with an HB pencil, by darkening the circle (representing the correct option) completely. The answer booklet is an OMR (Optical Mark Recognition) sheet, which looks like the one below:
Negative marking:
Beware - for each wrong answer of a question, one third (0.33) of the marks assigned to that question will be deducted as penalty. Hence encircle the correct answer properly and also make wise-guesses!

IES Conventional Test Papers: 400 marks
Electrical Engineering Paper I: 3 hrs duration: 200 marks
Electrical Engineering Paper II: 3 hrs duration: 200 marks
These papers consists of descriptive (i.e. essay) type questions.
Depending on the relative performance by the IES candidates, UPSC decides the cut-off (minimum qualifying marks) in the Objective test and the papers of Conventional test is evaluated only for those above this cut-off. IES exam cut-off in the Objective test is approximately 60%.

IES Exam Syllabus for Electrical Engineers:
Kindly go through the blog article IES Exam Syllabus for Electrical Engineers, posted specifically for this purpose.

Another good website that I recommend for the IES sample paper is ParikshaGuru. It has some good collection of IES sample papers in PDF format. However, you would need to register and update your profile to download these papers.

IES Exam Books for Electrical Engineers:
