SSC JE Syllabus And Exam Pattern:
The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) is responsible for conducting the Junior Engineer (JE) examination. The exam is conducted to recruit engineering graduates for various posts which include SSC JE (Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, and Quantity Surveying & Contracts). The SSC JE syllabus and exam pattern will help candidates to prepare for the exam in a systematic manner.
Date of start of registration for SSC JE: 1st week of September 2020
Last date to submit completed application: 12th September 2020
