PGEE Syllabus

PGEE Exam Structure

The entrance examination consists of the following two papers:

  • General Aptitude paper – 90 Minutes
  • Subject paper – 90 Minutes
There will be negative marking of 25% for wrong answers in both the papers.

The General Aptitude paper will emphasize on basic aptitude, logical reasoning and basic questions on computers and mathematics.

Applicant should appear for one of the following relevant subject papers based on their graduation discipline.

  1. Computer Science and Engineering (CSE)
  2. Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE)
  3. Civil Engineering (CIVIL)
