Exam Pattern and Syllabus for Indian Engineering Services

Image result for college students

IES is a combined three-stage competitive examination (comprising five tests), called the Engineering Services Examination (ESE). It is conducted by the UPSC for recruitment to the Indian Engineering Services.

  • IES Exam is conducted offline.
  • IES consists of two written exams and 1 personality test round.Students can check IES Exam Pattern further in this article.
  • The written exam consists of 2 sections- objective paper and conventional paper.
  • Both the sections of the written test cover the entire syllabus of relevant engineering subject (Civil/ Mechanical/ Electrical/ Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering).
  • Date of notification for Preliminary Examination is September 29, 2017.
  • There will be negative marking for wring marked answers in the objective type question papers.
  • Medium of exam will be in English language only.

IES Exam Pattern for Prelims and Mains

There will be two written exams in the Prelims- objective paper and conventional paper-General Studies and Engineering Aptitude paper and Engineering discipline paper.

  • Two papers will be conducted in two different sessions.
  • Paper – will be of 2 hours and of 200 marks.
  • Paper-2 will be of 3 hours and of 300 marks.
  • There will be objective questions in the prelims.

There will be two papers in Mains examination subjective in nature which will be conducted in different sessions.

  • The distribution of marks for both the papers is 300+300 (600 marks).
  • The duration of both these papers is 3 hours each.
  • The paper pattern for IES Mains only involves the change in the type of questions.
