#### ESE 2020 Mains Civil Engineering Conventional Paper I Previous Conventional Questions with Solutions

In UPSC Engineering Services, Conventional Papers have 54.5% weightage in the entire process of written test.

In Paper-I of Civil Engineering six subjects are

included as follows:

1. Building Materials 2. Solid Mechanics

3. Structural Analysis 4. Design of Steel Structures

5. Design of Concrete and Masonry Structures

6. Construction Practice, Planning and Management

**The following approach is advisable to secure maximum marks.**

• The solution to any question shall have the following appropriate steps generally. Steps will also have due weightage.

(a) The data given

(b) The appropriate figure, if applicable, with parts labeled properly

(c) The concept on which the problem is being solved

(d) The relevant formulae with standard notations and abbreviations. Incase the paper setter asks to solve the question from the fundamentals, necessary derivations shall be done. Otherwise 70% of marks one has to lose. If the question carries more marks like 10 to 20 marks detailed analysis is compulsory to score high. If the question carries less marks (<8) the formulae with abbreviations and concept may be sufficient. In any case, the assumptions made shall be written clearly while solving a problem.

- The neatness and presentation of solutions will have 5% marks.
- Note that all parts of a question shall be answered together.
- Using short sentences and brevity in expressing the content is appreciated.
- Practice of numerical problems using calculator is very much essential instead of reading merely.

#### ESE/GATE/PSUs Handbook on Electrical Engineering

The present Hand Book on Electrical Engineering is an outcome of an attempt to have a single book on basic concepts and important formulae for Electrical Engineering students those who are preparing for various competitive exams like GATE, ESE, SSC, RRB, GENCO, TRANSCO, DISCOMs, State Commissions and other PSUs.

This book has been prepared y our subject experts by compiling it subject wise and chapter wise to help students for quick revision of the subject, to recollect the basic concepts and formulae before going to exam.

One of the innovations of this book is, we provided popular interview questions at the end of each subject, which help the students before going to any interview.
