Hi guyz,
my branch is CIVIL ENGINEERING.
Talking about the question paper ,it had 2 sections,115 qs  and 115 minutes.no negative marking,all questions are compulsary
1.aptitude-it had 55 questions covering almost all aspects like reading comprehension, problem solving,vocabulary......
2.technical-its based on ur branch matter.
The following questions are all memory based as u r not allowed to take away your question paper home.
APTITUDE:
55 questions
1.Meaning of words used in sentence.example: "bonafide" was the word used in sentence( dont remember the sentence) and u had to find its meaning from options(4 qs).
2.use of prepositions and articles
3.2 reading comprehensions followed by ques such as theme of the passage and ......................
4.majority of  problem solving questions were based on  chapters like profit and loss,percentage,geometry( 2 questions in my paper i remember),time and distance,progressions(ex: 15th term of the fibonacci series ) ratio propertions.Not all qs were from these but majority were.
5.some data interpretation questions and problem solving qs  were as follows::
(a)  replace * with +./ with -,+ with *,- with / and solve the following questions
24/78+90*87-87/878   (values are arbitraryly put  here but ques looked like this and there were  2qs)
(b)  a passage was given with informations about   3 guest houses red,green,yellow and their details like accomodation status, fees, advance fees,reservation criteria. etc. followed by 3 ques based on them(typical data interpretation qs, 2 such passages were there =6qs)
(c)A,B,C are three vertices of a triangle and triangle DEF is formed by joining midpoints of the triangle abc respectively.what is the ratio of the area of   triangle DEF to TRIANGLE ABC?
(d)ram 's salry is 20 % less than raj salary,bikram's salary is 55 % more than raj's salry.if raj saves 20% of the salary which equal to rs.2000, what is bikram's salry?(values changed but qs was on these concepts)
TECHNICAL:
60 questions
The questions were very basic.

dont remember the no. of questions from different sections but qs were max from geotech followed by fmhm,structure,building materials,traffic engineering.Very less no. of qs were from irrigation engg.,and water supply and sanitary engg.
some qs:
1.minimum clear cover that can b provided for beams
3.span to depth ratio of spans

18.heber no. ,reynold no and their limits
19.permisible BOD of waste water
20.what is the hollow portion provided on brick top called?

these are all i can remember ,hope my contribution  is  useful and fruitful.Remember to attempt all qs.
