Electrical Engineering


Strategy

The syllabus of electrical engineering can be classified into three categories.

i) Syllabus common to both electrical engineering and electronics engineering

ii) Electrical engineering subjects

iii) Electronics engineering subjects

1st Category
Paper-1: Electrical Circuits; Signals and Systems; Analog Electronics; Digital Electronics
Paper-2: Control Systems; electrical Measurements; Microprocessors; electrical Materials

2nd Category
Paper-1: Electrical Machines; Power Electronics and Drives
Paper-2: Power Systems Analysis and Control; Power Systems Protection; Non Conventional Energy Sources

3rd Category
Paper-1: Analog communication; Microwaves and Antennas; EM Theory
Paper-2: Radar, Satellite and TV; IC Fabrication; Fibre Optic Communications; Digital Communications


For Electrical Background Students

Paper-1:
You have to read two electrical engineering subjects mentioned in 2nd Category and Common subjects mentioned in 1st Category. 

Attempt question numbers 1,2,3,5 and 8. Hence you can attempt (55+55+60+55+60=) 285 marks. If you can read EM Theory also, then you can
attempt (60+60+60+55+60=) 295 marks. Due to paucity of time in the exam, you may not be able to attempt more than 250 marks. If one is hard pressed for time, one can leave Signals and Systems. Even then one can attempt 265 marks.

Therefore the priority of subjects must be as follows:
1) Electrical Circuits
2) Electrical Machines
3) Power Electronics
4) Analog Electronics
5) Digital Electronics

If you have time, then read Signals and Systems & EM Theory. If you don’t have time, then read the first 3 subjects above and still you can attempt 220 marks.

Paper-2
We have to read three Electrical Engineering subjects mentioned in 2nd Category and four subjects mentioned in 1st Category. In addition read IC Fabrication as it is a small subject.

Attempt questions numbers 1,2,3,5 and 8. You can attempt (60+60+60+60+60=) 300 marks. If you are hard pressed for time, read only 4 subjects (Control Systems, Power Systems Analysis and Control, Power Systems Protection and Non Conventional Energy Sources) and you can attempt (40+60+40+20+60=) 220 marks. If possible then read electrical materials, IC Fabrication and Electrical Measurements. Then you can attempt (60+60+60+60+60=) 300 marks. 

Therefore the priority of subjects must be as follows:

1) Control Systems
2) Power Systems Analysis and Control
3) Power Systems Protection
4) Non Conventional Energy Sources
5) Electrical Materials
6) IC Fabrication
7) Electrical Measurements
8) Microprocessors


For Electronics Background Students

Paper 1:
We have to read three Electronics Engineering subjects mentioned in 3rd Category (Analog Communication, Microwaves and Antennas and EM Theory) and Common subjects mentioned in 1st Category (Electrical Circuits, Signals and Systems, Analog Electronics and Digital Electronics).

Attempt question numbers 1,4,5,6 and 7. We can attempt (60+60+60+60+60=) 300 marks. If one is hard pressed for time, one can leave Signals and Systems & EM Theory. Even then one can attempt 265 marks.

Therefore the priority of subjects must be as follows:
1) Electrical Circuits
2) Analog Communication
3) Microwaves and Antennas
4) Analog Electronics
5) Digital Electronics
6) EM Theory and
7) Signals and Systems

If one doesn’t have much time, prepare only 4 subjects (Elctrical Circuits, Analog Communication, Microwaves and Antennas and EM Theory) and still can attempt 220 marks.

Paper –2:
We have to read four Electronic engineering subjects mentioned in 3rd Category (Radar, Satellite and TV, IC Fabrication, Fibre Optic Communications and Digital Communications) and three subjects mentioned in 1st Category (Microprocessors, Electrical Measurements and Electrical Materials).

Attempt question numbers 1,4,5,6 and 7. The n you can attempt (40+60+60+60+60)=280 marks. 

Therefore the priority of subjects must be as follows:
1) Radar, Satellite and TV
2) Digital Communications
3) IC Fabrication
4) Fibre Optic Communications
5) Electrical Materials
6) Electrical Measurements and
7) Microprocessors
