List of Important Topics as per Exam will be as follows:While building concepts and solving questions, there should be no time limit or pressure. Ideally, one should try one’s best to solve 30-40 questions on each topic (attempt section tests).SSC JE Study Plan for General Engineering (Concerned Subject)Technical knowledge is the major portion of the SSC JE Examination, 50% of the Questions are based on Technical Knowledge as per the trade (Civil/ Mechanical/ Electrical). Diploma Holders are eligible to appear for the Examination hence the level of difficulty of the Questions asked is Medium and much Basics Dependant.
