UPSC ESE/IES 2022 Exam Pattern

UPSC Engineering Services Exam (ESE) Preliminary/Stage-I

The Engineering Services (Preliminary/Stage-I) Examination will consist of two objective-type questions papers (multiple choices) and carry a maximum of 500 marks (Paper 1 – 200 Marks & Paper II – 300 Marks).  Only those candidates who are declared by the Commission to have qualified in the Preliminary/Stage-I Examination in the year will be eligible for admission to the Main/Stage-II Examination.

NOTE:

(i) The Marks obtained in the Preliminary/Stage-I Examination by the candidates who are declared qualified for admission to the Main/Stage-II Examination will be counted for determining their final order of merit.

(ii) The Commission will draw a list of candidates to be qualified for Engineering Services (Main/Stage-II) Examination based on the criterion of minimum qualifying marks in General Studies and Engineering Aptitude Paper (Paper-I) and Engineering Discipline specific paper (Paper-II) of Preliminary/Stage-I Examination.

(iii) There will be a penalty (Negative Marking) for wrong answers marked by a candidate in the objective type of question papers.

(a) There are four alternatives for the answers to every question. For each question for which a wrong answer has been given by the candidate, one-third (1/3rd) of the marks assigned to that question will be deducted as penalty. 

(b) If a candidate gives more than one answer, it will be treated as a wrong answer even if one of the given answers happen to be correct and there will be same penalty as above for that question. 

(c) If a question is left blank i.e., no answer is given by the candidate, there will be no penalty for that question.
