UPPSC Assistant Civil Engineer Syllabus 2023 For Paper 1 and Paper 2

Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission has released the UPPSC Assistant Engineer syllabus for the post of Assistant Civil Engineer. The selection in the UPPSC AE post is based on the written test carrying paper 1 and paper 2 followed by an Interview round. The important sections of the UPPSC Assistant Civil Engineer Paper-I are General Hindi and a Concerned Subject and for Paper-II, there are General Studies and a Concerned Subject.

However, the result and cut-off score will be released on the official site so candidates need to check the UPPSC AE notification carefully daily. Candidates who fulfill the UPPSC AE 2023 eligibility criteria can appear for the exam. However, candidates who want to crack the UPPSC AE exam should be familiar with the UPPSC AE exam pattern 2023.
