BSNL JTO Exam Pattern, Sample Papers, Books

This blog post follows two of my previous blog post on BSNL JTO Exam titled: BSNL JTO-2009: Notification, Eligibility & Forms & BSNL JTO Exam Syllabus – one giving you the introductory information on BSNL JTO exam, eligibilities, how to apply for the JTO exam while the other gives you the syllabus of BSNL JTO exam.

The focus of this particular blog post is to help you prepare for the exam – by telling you about the exam pattern of BSNL JTO exam and giving you’re the sources of sample papers & available books.

Exam pattern of BSNL JTO exam:
Selection process of BSNL JTO exam consists of a written exam on all-India basis. There are 3 sections in the written test, to be answered in 3 hours without any gap in between the individual sections.

BSNL JTO exam questions are of multiple choice objective type questions, the standards of which are those of Engineering Examinations of an Indian University. Syllabus for the three JTO vacancies i.e. JTO (Civil), JTO (Electrical), JTO (Telecom) can be found from this previous blog post.

Of the 3 sections of the BSNL JTO written test, first two sections contain questions of the individual Engineering stream, with 50 questions in each section. While the third section contains General Ability questions from general English, current affairs, events and developments in Tele Communications, History of India and Geography.

Thus 120 questions of say JTO (Civil) would have following exam pattern:
Section - I: Civil Engineering Stream :50 questions
Section - II: Civil Engineering Stream :50 questions
Section - III: General Ability Test :20 questions
Same exam pattern follows for JTO (Electrical) & JTO (Telecom) also.

Based on the relative performance of all candidates and number of vacancies, BSNL would decide the minimum qualifying marks for candidates category-wise (i.e. OC/OBC/SC/ST/PH) for each section and also in the aggregate. To be selected in the JTO exam, candidates would have to score above this cut-off mark in each individual sections as well as in aggregate.

BSNL JTO exam online sample papers:
If you are thinking seriously about appearing in the BSNL JTO exam, naturally you might be wondering where to get those sample/model/past years papers of BSNL JTO exam?

I did the search for you on the net and came out with following results. The quality of not all these BSNL JTO exam sample papers is best and you might have to use them with a pinch of salt, using them for exposure only. Your main preparation material for BSNL JTO exam should be based on books given in the next section.

Placementpapers.net
It has one BSNL JTO Exam sample papers. Click here to view this online sample papers of BSNL JTO Exam.

Freshershome.com
It has few BSNL JTO Exam sample papers. Click here to view these online sample papers of BSNL JTO Exam.

I found that almost all the BSNL JTO sample papers posted on these sites are for the JTO (Telecom) & JTO (Electrical) engineering stream and could not find any sample papers for engineering streams of JTO (Civil). If you find any, kindly post it as a comment below.

However, as the General Ability section is common to all streams, it can be found from all the above papers, question No.101-120.

Books for preparation for BSNL JTO exam:
I found following books could be useful to you for BSNL JTO exam. These books are available in most of the bookstores, but you can also order them online by clicking the links below, from Flipkart.com which offers huge discounts from 10% to 25%, apart from free shipping/postage in India.

hello to all,
see the exams like bsnl jto need the concept,basic knowledge with the mathematical skill to solve the problems in quick time.
Books for jto telecom:-
materials and components-M.L Anand
physical electronics and IC-millman and halkias
network theory-Valkenburg
EMFT-K.d Prasad
EMI-swahney
analog-j b gupta
digital-morris mano
control-nagratha nd gopal
communication-haykin
microwave-kulkarni
microprocessor-b.ram

and do preparation for section 3 i.e general ablity because for an jto.u need to clear section cutoff in all the three sections...dnt tke section 3 lightly....give proper time to all....and most important is strong understanding of basic concept then u come with flying colours.....
and the sample papers are all memory based..so dnt go for sample papers first...read all the subjects.
hope the information above is useful for you...
best wishes

hi.
all the bsnl jto previous papers are memory based but ya you can check it on web..
ya you can easiy prepare for your own...
recently i met with an JTO(my relative)nd he told me the last year cutoff was 42-48 overall....
but he didnt knw the sectional cutoff but he told me that he do atleast 20 questions from each 1st two section and 8 question from last section....
all objective type questions book which are meant for IES is alos suitable for JTO because the syallbus for ies and jto is exactly same...

Guys
the books available in the market like G K pub, Gelgotia and others are only useless and not sufficent for JTO-2009.

most of the answers in these books are incorrect.

please think before choosing book.

ppl frm different background other than electronics and civil are found problem in preparation...but its a golden chance for electronics student because he already read all the subjects in past 4 years....
the main thing is that dnt go for previous years papers ,all these papers r memory based...for preparation read all the electronic principles becoz for getting into bsnl u need to know al the basic principles

why people want to come in BSNL.
people shoul look into the financial aspect and join. best to have a govt job as govt is paying nice.
BSNL- 4 lakh employee.
always strike.
No channel for progress.

think and then write.

Hi everyone !

I am preparing for BSNL JTO. I am completely out of touch from the subjects. So i need to know some help in preparation.

I have purchased GK Publishers's BSNL JTO 2009 GUIDE.

The objective portion of the book is quite good and very much exam oriented.

But the theory and explanation about every topic doesnot seem much explanatory as i am facing difficulty in relating and understanding them.

Can anyone suggest me some good book for theory portion as well.

I need some guidance.

subhodeep sen said...

It will be good to brush up your basics in electronics.Gate syllabus and bsnl jto syllabus almost coincides so if u prepare well for gate u can master bsnl jto too.Rather than joining some coaching if you r really serious study by yourself and enroll for just the test series of gateforum.Their test series is the best.If u can do good in gate u must be doing good in jto too.Get hold of some basic books and start studying.Dont forget about GK publishers gate books they really come in handy.
