Preparing for JKSSB Teacher Exam 2018? Know the Revised JKSSB Teacher Syllabus in Advance

You might be looking at this page, only after you got the news about the recently announced JKSSB Teacher Recruitment 2017 for more than 2100 posts. Yes, its true and its Official, that there are more than 2100+ teacher posts have been announced by JKSSB for 14 Districts and more teacher Posts will be announced in the coming months for Leftover Districts. It is worth mentioning here that J&K Cabinet has approved 8200 Teacher Posts which includes Assistant Professors, 10+2 Lecturers and Teachers and these will be announced in 2018 and 2019.

On 27th Dec 2017, JKSSB had announced the Bumper Recruitment of 2154 Teacher Posts, which includes maximum posts for Kashmir Division and a Few Posts for Jammu Division. If you have not yet applied for the JKSSB Teacher Exam, then do so early, as the Last date for submitting the JKSSB Teacher Online form is 21st Jan 2018. Check Here the Detailed JKSSB Teacher Recruitment 2018 

If you belong to any of the 8 Districts for which there are No vacancies then Remember, one thing sooner or later the Notification will definitely come and that too for over 3000+ posts. Now, the big question is How many people will apply for these 2154 vacancies. It is expected that JKSSB, might receive over 1 Lakh applications for these posts and mostly from Kashmir Division.

Last time, in 2013, JKSSB invited applications for over 5000+ posts and for that, 1.50 lakh people have applied.

So, from this, you can see the competition level.

Now, the next Question is How to beat this competition level and stand out in the List of Successful candidates.The answer is only Hard work, with a little bit of luck. As the saying goes, that Fortune favours the brave, so be brave, and Let your hard work, do the rest.

You can start your preparation, only if you have the correct JKSSB Teacher Syllabus. I used the word correct, because, there is lot of confusion over the Syllabus and the exact syllabus will be known only after there will be an official notification on this and Finally, on 28th Dec 2017 this confusion ends with the announcement of JKSSB Teacher Posts

Update (As on 28th Dec 2017)

On 28th Dec, JKSSB has released the Official Notification for 2154 Teacher Posts and the Good thing is that this Notification has the Revised and Latest Teacher Syllabus too. Usually, JKSSB announces the Notification and announces the Syllabus Later on. But this time, JKSSB did the great by announcing the Syllabus and Notification Simultaneously. 

However, this time, there are Big Changes made in the Syllabus and Scheme of JKSSB Teacher Exam. If you have appeared for JKSSB Teacher Exam in 2013, then you might be aware that at that time, there is No allocation of posts for specific subjects. But this JKSSB Teacher Notification has 30% Posts for Science / Maths and 10% for Urdu. 

Here you can see, this is the Subject-wise Break-up of Teacher Posts

ie Only those candidates who have studied Maths, Science and Urdu Subjects at Graduation Level for all the Years/ Semesters can apply for these posts, Other Graduates can apply for (General Teachers) Posts

Now, as the Post and Different, so Syllabus is Different too. 

Previous Syllabus and Exam Pattern Does not exist anymore. 

In this Post, we will discuss the Latest and Revised Syllabus for JKSSB Teacher Posts. 

Revised JKSSB Teacher Exam Pattern 2018

The Examination Pattern of JKSSB Teacher Exam also undergoes a Big change for the Upcoming Teacher Written Exam in 2018. Earlier the Selection Criteria comprises of Written Test, Higher Qualification Points and Interview.

However, from 2018, Education Department has dispensed with the Interviews for Teachers Posts in J&K

4) PG: 02
5)  M.Phil=01,

From this list, we can conclude, that Marks obtained in the Written test has weightage of 85%. So, Written test is very crucial for selection, actually Written test is the kingmaker in this teacher selection process

Note: Marks obtained in the Written test out of 120, are to be converted proportionate out of 85 points)

Why there is confusion over the JKSSB Teacher syllabus?

Earlier the Qualification for teachers is 10+2 and as such, it falls under the Group of posts for which basic Qualification is 10+2, and for which the Board had already prescribed a Syllabus for all posts with 10+2 as Qualification.

Here is the Previous JKSSB Syllabus with 10+2 as Qualification

1) General English: 20 Marks
2) Mathematics: 20 Marks
3) History: 15 Marks
4) Civics: 15 Marks
5) Geography: 15 Marks
6) General Science: 20 Marks
7) GK and Current Affairs: 15 Marks
8) GK with Special Reference to J&K: 15 Marks
9) Mental Ability test: 15 Marks

Now, from this year, the Government,  has upgraded the Qualification of teachers to Graduation. Now the basic eligibility criteria, to apply for teaching Jobs in Graduation and as such it falls under the Category of Posts with Graduation as Qualification, and for that, the Government has prescribed the Syllabus for Graduation level posts.

Here is the JKSSB Syllabus for Graduation Level posts

1) General English: 20 Marks
2) GK and Current Affairs: 30 Marks
3) GK with Special Reference to J&K: 25 Marks
4) General Science: 25 Marks
5) Mental Ability test: 25 Marks
6) Computer Applications: 25 Marks

Now, The Government has revised the Eligibility criteria, but the change in Syllabus and Exam pattern will be known exactly, once the JKSSB Notification will be announced.

So, wait for the announcement of Official JKSSB Notification for teacher Jobs

Best Tip: It will take some time, before the announcement of Official Teacher Notification. In the meantime, you can prepare the following sections, as these will definitely be part of the Revised Syllabus

1) General English
2) General Knowledge and Current Affairs
3) General Science
4) General Knowledge with special Reference to J&K


Now, we will update this page, only after the JKSSB releases the Official Notification for the recruitment of teacher posts OR If there is any Notification regarding the revised teacher Syllabus.
