The Prelims stage of Engineering Services Examination (ESE) 2019 IES just got over today. The exam was conducted by Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) for the selection in Indian Engineering Services (IES). Mr. B. Singh, CMD MADE EASY, along with the Electronics & Telecommunications Engineering faculties has analysed the question paper for the students. In this article, we will be sharing detailed review of the paper and what should be the future strategy for the students. The trend of the paper has been constantly shifting in the past few years. Leaving any portion of the syllabus can cost heavily in this scenario.
Now let’s discuss about the subject wise analysis of Electronics & Telecommunications Engineering of ESE 2019 Prelims paper:
Network Theory: This year 15 questions were asked as compared to 9 questions asked in the previous year. There were more questions of numerical type and the questions were lengthy. The questions were tougher than those asked in the last year.
EDC: The level of questions was very easy and only 4 questions were asked.
Analog Electronics: The questions were of moderate level and 11 questions were asked. The questions were almost similar to last year and were comparably easier.
Material Science: This year 13 questions were asked compared to 7 questions asked in the last year. Compared to the last year the paper was slightly tougher.
Basics of Electrical Engineering: This year only 9 questions were asked and were relatively easier than those asked in the previous year.
Control System: This year the number of questions and the level of questions both have reduced.
Electromagnetic Field Theory: The number of questions asked in this subject has been consistent over the years. The standard of questions has always been similar and this year there were less questions from antennas, which is considered as one of the tough topics.
Computer Organization and Architecture: This year 10 questions were asked. It is a high scoring subject where you can secure good marks with least amount of effort.
Advanced Electronics: More questions were asked from Microprocessor. Total of 17 questions were asked. VLSI questions were tough but rest of the questions were quite easy.
Digital Circuits: The questions were quite easy. 10 questions were asked out of which 9 were of numerical type. The questions were only from two topics and were basic in nature.
Measurement & Instrumentation: Out of the 11 questions asked only one question was theoretical. This time there was no Assertion-Reasoning from this subject. The questions were of moderate level.
If we take a comprehensive overview of the question paper then, the paper was slightly easier than the last year’s paper. To get a more in-depth analysis of the paper and success strategy from Mr. B. Singh, please watch the video given below:
