IES Indian Engineering Services papers answers free download

Indian Engineering Services IES is one of the most sought after exams in India.Candidates are placed in Government of India jobs.They might be placed in Indian railways or other defense units.Every year IES exams are conducted (generally in mid part of the year). Large number of candidates appear for these exams.Due to lucrative career ahead IES attract students in large number. But the vacancies are not large in number (around 500 seats only).This makes it very competitive exam indeed.So proper planning and preparation is really required to crack Indian Engineering services.

IES Free downloads

I have compiled IES questions along with answers for candidates.You can download these documents for free.All the questions are with answers.The documents are in very readable PDF format.You can start your preparation with this material. The documents will get updated with time (more information will be added to them in due course so keep checking this space for more).

IES Eligibility criteria

Students having technical degree (Bachelor of Engineering BE or Bachelor of Technology BTECH) appear in this exam.Not all branches of engineering is allowed on IES.Below branches of Engineering are allowed in IES
  1. Electrical Engineering
  2. Mechanical Engineering
  3. Civil Engineering
  4. Electronics Engineering
Since the eligibility criteria is not stringent most of candidates graduating in above trades can appear for this exam.There are not much choices for candidates of top three engineering disciplines above.Many candidates from these core trades are moving to IT companies due to lack of core competency jobs. Major number of candidates from these core branches turn up to IES exams.This fact increases number of candidates in exam.Due to less number of seats and large number of skilled candidates this exam becomes very competitive.

IES Syllabus

You can appear for IES after completing your BTECH.So the syllabus of IES covers subjects covered in your BTECH curriculum.You can leave out your non core subjects like Financial Management or Computer languages based subjects. Candidates should pay attention to their core subjects.The questions asked are not very difficult but they do cover almost all sections.You should have thorough preparation to succeed in these exams.

IES preparation video

The video shows planning and preparation tips for cracking IES exams.

IES Written Test

IES written test is first stage in IES exams.The written test comprises of two tests General Paper The General paper consists consists of below sections
  • Antonyms
  • Synonyms
  • Comprehension
  • Sentence Improvement
  • Spotting Errors
  • Fill in the blanks simple sentences
  • General Knowledge
  • General Aptitude and General Awareness
Good Knowledge of English language is very important to get good marks in General paper.Candidates should not underestimate English section.Generally it is found that candidates dedicate all time to technical subjects overlooking General paper.This does not serve the purpose.You should no doubt prepare well for your technical subjects but until and unless you clear this paper you have no chance. So it is wise enough to dedicate sometime to this paper.Candidates not so strong in English language should concentrate much on it.The grammar part should be taken care of seriously.Antonyms and Synonyms require good amount of reading but grammar section needs little work and is covers more marks. Apart from English language General paper covers general awareness as well.General Awareness is very broad area.You can get questions from Geography,Indian Constitution,History and other areas as well.This is most challenging part of the exams.It is very difficult to prepare for this part  in few days.You need to keep in touch with events around you constantly. You should read periodicals and newspapers for this part of general paper.This part is very scoring and less time consuming.Solving this part fast will give you enough time to invest in Comprehension and Spotting error questions of English section.So plan the sections well. IES General Paper book IES General paper has broad syllabus and requires thorough preparation.The above preparation methodology works well.But many candidate prefer having a single book to cover every aspect of IES General paper.I have researched for a decent book on this topic.You can buy the book online.Buying online is cheaper as you can get decent discount as well.Below book covers each and every topic asked in General paper.So you can read and solve the thoroughly for good preparation along with tips mentioned above. Engineering subjects paper Two objective papers on your trade.For example of you are appearing for Electrical Engineering then you will have to appear for two electrical engineering objective questions papers.The question paper is multiple choice questions.The two papers cover most of of your BTECH syllabus.Normally you can see few questions from every major topic of your engineering discipline. The questions are mixture of easy ones,medium ones and tough ones.It is not good idea to get stuck on one question and waste time.So mark the question and move ahead.I have seen few very easy questions as well.So candidates should be wise in question selection. To prepare for Engineering subjects paper it is best to read your theory and then solve practice paper.Solving practice paper will give you insight of your preparation level.After solving practice papers for few months you can move ahead and solve IES question papers of past year. It is good idea to solve them with watch in front so as to check your speed as well.After solving the paper analyze the question you made mistake on.Then identify the sections these questions belong to and revise the concepts.It is better to retry the questions after revising the concepts. Then you are good to try other previous year question paper or try out other sample papers.

 IES Written Test planning

As mentioned above IES written test comprises of General Ability and Professional knowledge.There is one paper on General Ability and two paper on Professional knowledge.Candidates focus heavily on professional knowledge and do tend to ignore general paper. But you should keep in mind that every marks count in competitive exams.It does not matter whether you are getting it in professional paper or general paper.Marks in distributed in ratio of 2:1 (2 professional and 1 general) so preparation should also be in this ratio (more or less). Candidates should focus on easy parts where they are good at and can score easily.After that they should gradually move to other parts.Considering huge syllabus of IES it becomes difficult to prepare every part equally well.But it is good to have fair knowledge of different sections. Sometimes you get simple questions from some sections.You will not able to solve them if entire section is left.So it is better to have general knowledge of most sections.

How to use IES free downloads?

I have shared above resources to help you prepare better for coming Indian Engineering Services.But to get most of these papers you should follow below approach. You can scan the downloads to see IES paper pattern but do not start solving them.It is better to prepare first.You can prepare a section and then solve all the questions from that section in above downloads.In case you make mistakes then revisit the concept and solve the question again.It is good not to see the answers before solving it once. This way you can figure out your IES preparation level.After doing this exercise for sections you should solve complete papers in downloads to see where you stand in competition.You can check your score with previous year scores to see your performance in IES exams. After taking above tests identify areas where you can score without investing much effort or learning lots of concepts.Start preparing those sections and in between revise your prepared sections.I will be updating the post from time to time so keep checking in. In case you found this post useful consider sharing this post.
