SSC CPWD JE Exam Syllabus
Staff Selection Commission (SSC) had recently issued notification for SSC JE Exam 2014, details of which you can find in my previous blog article titled: SSC JE Exam 2014 Notification, Eligibility & Form. Also another blog article titled: SSC JE Exam Pattern, Sample Papers, Books was posted to give you the study materials for this exam.

This blog post is made to provide you the syllabus for SSC JE Exam, reproducing it in verbatim from the SSC JE Exam 2014 Notification. Although this post has been made for those appearing in 2014 exam, candidates for future exams can also use this syllabus as the reference syllabus for SSC CPWD JE Exam 2015, since over the years, the syllabus has not changed much.

SSC CPWD/MES JE Exam Syllabus for "General Awareness" paper:
Questions will be aimed at testing the candidate's general awareness of the environment around him/her and its application to society. Questions will also be designed to test knowledge of current events and of such matters of everyday observations and experience in their scientific aspect as may be expected of any educated person. The test will also include questions relating to India and its neighbouring countries especially pertaining to History, Culture, Geography, Economic Scene, General Polity, and Scientific Research, etc. These questions will be such that they do not require a special study of any discipline.
