SSC JE Civil and Structural Syllabus comprises various topics from Aptitude, GK and topics taught during the diploma for Civil and Structural Engineering. In SSC JE Paper-I, candidate’s knowledge will be tested in the following three papers: General Intelligence and Reasoning, General Awareness, and Basic Engineering. Here are few important topics related to SSC JE Syllabus for Civil Engineering.
SSC JE Written test will be consist of two question papers viz., Paper-I and Paper-II. Paper-I will be conducted online having Objective Type Multiple Choice questions where candidates will choose one correct option from the options. Paper-II will be of conventional type and will be conducted in Pen and Paper mode. Candidates appearing for the post of Junior Engineer (Civil), Junior Engineer (Quantity Surveying & Contract) are required to attempt Part A (Civil & Structural) of Paper-I and Paper-II.
Focusing on the topics and preparing well keeping the SSC JE Syllabus as the base would help the candidate save time as well as has his/her attention on the important topics. With the help of the syllabus, identify the topics of your interest and the ones that you might find difficult and prepare a strategy for them.

1. Be thorough with the syllabus and exam pattern:
You should know the syllabus very well and also keep updating yourself with the written examination syllabus and examination pattern for the better preparation. First step to good performance is being aware of the syllabus and scheme of examination for SSC JE Civil Engineering.
2. Strengthen your basics:
Basics need to be very strong in order to understand the difficult and higher level concepts. Gain good conceptual knowledge before proceeding with the advanced level. These basic concepts will help you solve a good number of questions with ease. Get your basics right and then only you can go further with tough concepts.
3. Focus on both theory and practical part:
It is believed that civil engineering has more of practical inclination in its subjects, but it also involves a lot of theory and one must never avoid the theoretical concepts of the exam. A lot of Physics and chemistry is involved which means your concepts related to these must be learn very well. You should focus on theoretical part as much as you practice the numericals.
4. Make and follow a study plan:
Once you are familiar with the syllabus and exam pattern, you should prepare a time-table for the various topics included in Civil engineering for SSC JE. Time management during preparation is really important as then, you will have enough time for every subject and no time constraints would arise. It is very important to follow a study plan as it will guide you through the entire preparation process.
5. Revision is a must:
It is advised to revise each and every topic on daily basis so to identify their examination preparation. After studying every topic, make a habit of revising it after a few hours so that all the concepts are very much clear in your mind. On completing the syllabus, revise all the topics from the notes for Civil Engineering for SSC JE. Apart from using reference material to study, you need to prepare using your own notes and revise from them just before the exam.
6. Time Management is the Key:
Candidates need to manage time in such a way that they automatically attempt more questions. Candidates are advised to learn short tips and tricks that will help them save time during the exam. Time management will help you complete your syllabus in a good amount of time and you will have enough time to revise and practice what you have learnt.
7. Practice with Mock Tests and Previous Year Papers:
To know about the pattern of the exam and the type of questions being asked in the Civil Engineering section of SSC JE exam, it is highly recommended to practice with SSC JE Mock Tests and Previous year question papers of SSC JE. This also helps candidates to know the level of paper. Evaluate your performance regularly with these past year papers. So, solve as many question papers as possible and get yourself prepared for the exam.
