WBSEDCL question paper answers tips and suggestions

Every year WBSEDCL schedules entrance examination for recruitment of Assistant engineers and sub assistant engineers.The recruitment process consist of two stages.The first stage is written test.Candidates successful in written test appear for interview.The various trades in which WBSEDCL recruits are (there are other as well but we will cover these trades in this post)

  • Electrical
  • Civil
  • IT

Written test question paper comprises of two sections Objective questions and Descriptive questions.Out of these two sections objective carries more marks.The descriptive is only of 20 marks.So candidates should pay more importance to objective question paper.

WBSEDCL question paper Common Sections

The WBSEDCL objective question paper has following divisions

  • Quantitative aptitude
  • Logical reasoning
  • Current affairs
  • Professional knowledge
  • English

Out of above sections only professional knowledge section differs for candidates belonging to different trades.Candidates of electrical,civil and IT will have common questions in other sections.The pattern remains the same for all trades.

I am listing brief details of each section and syllabus of the same.I have also listed sample questions on these sections.You can download sample questions along with answers from links given at end of the post.

WBSEDCL question paper Quantitative aptitude questions

The quantitative aptitude section test your analytical skill.Speed and accuracy to solve questions is the key.You will find easy as well as tough questions.So selection of questions is important.Some of the questions are very time consuming but simple.The syllabus of Quantitative aptitude covers below sections

  • Profit and Loss
  • Percentage,Average and Mixture problems
  • Simple Algebric Equations
  • Speed and Time,Work and Time
  • Interest rate problems
  • Trigonometry

WBSEDCL question paper Logical reasoning questions

Logical reasoning section tests your logical skill.The questions are tricky and some are complicated.You need to choose which to attempt and which to leave.This choice become extremely important so that you can give appropriate time to other sections.The common problems asked can be divided into following groups

  • Round Table problems
  • Sequencing problems (Queue problems)
  • Data Analysis problems

WBSEDCL question paper Current affairs questions

WBSEDCL objective question paper comprises of Genral Awareness and Current Affairs section as well.The questions may not seem too complicated but are tricky.You can find common questions like Who is head of UNO.You should really read newspaper regularly to asnwer this section.The number of questoins belonging to this section is not much but is important for scoring good marks.
The other benefit of this section is it can be high scoring but less time consuming.This will help you concentrate on time consuming sections Logical reasoning and Quantitative aptitude.

WBSEDCL question paper English questions

The questions asked in English section can be divided into below groups

  • Antonyms
  • Synonyms
  • Sentence Correction
  • Spotting Errors
  • Comprehension

WBSEDCL question paper Professional knowledge questions

This section differs for each trade.You will get questions depending upon your trade.For example if you are from electrical then you will get questions from electrical and if you are from Civil you will get questions from Civil.

Now there are rumors about WBSEDCL syllabus for Civil,Electrical and IT.The syllabus is your core technical subjects covered in 2nd year and 3rd year of Engineering or Diploma courses.Now if that looks too much to you (which really is thanks to our education system) you can filter it further.Just think which subjects deal with technologies to be used in WBSEDCL.This is not tough you can easily figure that out.

Lets understand this with an example.According to my statement above the syllabus for IT.There are many subjects in IT related to programming,computer architecture and operating system.But are these important to WBSEDCL.No they are not that important.For WBSEDCL Database Management Systems is important and Networking is important.WBSEDCL also has website so eCommerce and e security are also important.You should focus on these subjects for professional paper.

WBSEDCL question paper Descriptive questions

The descriptive question paper is given to candidates once they have finished answering the objective part.It is of 20 marks so many candidates do not pay attention to this paper.But you should take it seriously as well.The reason is every single marks count in competitive exam.

In descriptive paper you will have to write essays on topics given in the paper.The essay topics may not be related to your trade (electrical,civil,IT or any other). Below is the list of essays in 2010 examination as informed by one of the candidates (IT) (three topics were given)

  • Usage of Non renewable resources of electricity
  • ┬áMy best day in life

So practice writing essays.It might be the difference maker for you.

      Which university do you belong? UGC stands for University Grant Commission and AICTE stands for All India Council of Technical Education..UGC approval is must for all universities and AICTE is only for technical ones..I think there should not be a problem..The college is following syllabus of University which needs to be approved by AICTE..

      In case you are from West Bengal then IMO WBUT is your university..then there should not be an issue..But please cross check it with Vidyut Bhawan as they decision will be final

    Well i appeared for the examination which was held on 16th june this year. And trust me the predicted questions of yours were enough to mark 5-6 question.

Considering the previous year, could you tell us (approximately) what is the cut off marks to get a call in Interview for CIVIL? Please also tell the weightage in written test for final selection.

    Hi Esha , first of all great efforts from you Thanks for that..
    i gave the exam last sunday .. I have few doubts please clarify..

    In the notification it is written that the one who knows bengali will be preferrable .. Is it like they will be biased while the interview (i am asking this because i am non bengali).? Should i start learning bengali for interview ?

    What to answer of it is asked why you want to leave a big IT company and join WBSEDL .. (I will be really joining as there is more job security) but what can be the perfect answer.?

    What can be the cut off this time. .. ?

    Reply
    1. Esha Upadhyay

      You can not use the word biased.It is normal practice to give preference to candidates with local language knowledge..in fact Bank clerk recruitment interview does check local language knowledge..

      It will be good if you can learn it (just reading will do and normal talking..It is very easy and sweet language)..You can say that WBSEDCL is not impacted by recession so my growth will not depend on Global recession..I can perform and grow along with the organization..

      Cut off is difficult to say

      You can expect sectional cutoff this year.But there was no sectional cutoff previous year.
      Total sectional cutoff of major exams are around 48%. So you can expect it in WBSEDCL exam as well.Also they can raise it depending upon performance of candidates and requirement.
      There is no such things as exact syllabus..however RDBMS,Networking and online security are major topics.

          4 lakh is not a realistic figure for IT exams..You can yourself get the figure in easy steps..total number of students going to pass WBUT IT and CSE this year + few candidates of last year + fewer candidate of year before last year.Doing this simple calculation gives you estimated number.Last year approx number of candidates appearing just for IT and CSE was close to some thousand (I was informed about the number by one candidate but am not able to recall it)

    Candidates would be selected on the basis of totaling the individual marks for WRITTEN TEST, COMPUTER PROFICIENCY TEST and finally the INTERVIEW. Interview has been scheduled for over a period of 10 days starting from the 27th of Aug. The earlier one has been called merrier it is as because the Interview has been scheduled on the basis of the marks acquired in the written test and the CPT combined. If you have been called in the first 4 days…it means your combined score of the WRITTEN and CPT are very high, you have a very good chance and for those who have been called after 31st..chances are less likely that you would make it, although an outside chance remains only if your interview is outstanding.
