BSNL Technical Assistant Written Test Pattern

Note: 1. The candidate is required to obtain minimum qualifying marks in each of these parts as maybe prescribed by the BSNL.

Examination : The examination is fully objective multiple choice pattern . There will be a written test comprising of 3 ( three) parts consisting of Part-I (General ability test - 20 marks), Part-II (Basic Engineering-90 marks) and Part-III (Specialization - 90 marks) of 3 hours duration. Candidates will have the option to answer Part-II & III in Hindi or English language. Option once exercised in respect of medium of answer shall be final and in no way will be allowed to change. Scheme and syllabus of the examination is in Annexure-II


The standard of Paper in General ability test will be such as may be expected of an Engineering Diploma holder. The standard of papers in other subjects will approximately be that of Diploma level of an Indian Polytechnic. There shall be a single multiple choice objective types Paper of 3 hrs duration as per given below:
