IES Exam 2018 Electrical Engineering Syllabus And Notes

Hello friends today I am sharing electrical engineering syllabus for IES ESE exam 2018. Before read all syllabus please read carefully blow. The ies 2018 exam may be changed and removed some topic. So my friends read carefully this syllabus I hope this syllabus help you to your exam.
IES Exam 2018 Electrical Engineering Syllabus And Notes

Must Read This:-
The following changes will be implemented from ESE 2018
1.      Two tier examination patterns will be changed to 3 tier system which includes Preliminary/Stage-I (Objective Type Papers), Mains/Stage-II (Conventional Type Papers) and Personality Test which will make the screening process of huge number of candidates easier.
2.     Only those candidates qualifying the Preliminary/Stage-I will be permitted to appear for Mains/Stage-II
3.     Syllabus of ESE 2018 will include General Studies and Engineering Aptitude Paper which was only General ability paper before. History, Geography and Life Science has been removed from ESE 2018 syllabus.
4.     English is completely removed.
5.     Weightage of conventional papers has been increased by 100 marks.
6.     Weightage of objective papers has been reduced by 100 marks.
7.     From 2018 the ESE paper will be of 1100 marks (written-objective+conventional) and 200 marks (personality test) which will make the total; of 1300 marks which were 1200 marks earlier.

1. APTITUDE PAPER ( Stage-I, Paper-I) Common to all Candidates

General Studies and Engineering Aptitude 

The questions from the following Topics will be set in Paper-I of Stage-I Objective type, 2 hours duration, 200 Marks maximum)
