BSNL-JTO 2008 EXAM Syllabus
Negative marking is 33%. Generally cut-off for general category students is around 50-60 marks out of 150, which will be less for O.B.C/S.C/S.T category students. There will be no interview for final selection, criterion will be only written examination.
The objective type examination shall be of 3 hours duration with one question paper containing 3 sections of Engineering Stream Section-I, Engineering Stream Section-II and General Ability Test Section-III. The Engineering Stream Section-I and Section-II would include 50 questions each and General Ability test Section-III would include 20 questions. However, there would be no separate time fixed for attempting the separate sections.
