  • Yes, you can appear in any Government recruitment examination (Central Government, State Government or PSU), during your study. However, you must remember that you should appear only in those examinations for which you are eligible on the date of publication of the advertisement. Generally, for Government recruitment examinations, a qualification which will be acquired in the future is not taken into consideration.

  • While doing your B.Tech, you may sit for the competitive examinations as listed below-
    1) You may look out for the job of supervisory cadre in different establishments including the state - government, Public Undertaking or in the Railways on the basis of your Diploma in Engineering. You will have to see the criteria mentioned for the post.
    2) A little introspection is required to be done for your past academic - career, a high first class in all the semesters up to the seventh semester and a similar score in your final examination would make you eligible to appear for the Graduate - engineer trainee test in different Public - undertakings. However, you have to ensure that your final - result comes out prior to the demand of the establishments.

  • While doing B.Tech you can very well appear for various Govt posts which require the qualification as 10+2. The posts of clerk, Postman, office assistant etc are some of the such posts.

    During your final year in B.Tech you can appear for those exams for which B.Tech is the eligibility but your participation will be subject to your qualifying B.Tech in a manner as prescribed in eligibility criterion and you will have to produce that within a stipulated time.

    So these are the basic premises on which you have to plan your application for Govt jobs whenever they are advertised.

    Knowledge is power.

  • SSC and UPSC, two important department in the country arrange distinct recruitment runs throughout the year for B.Tech degree holders. There are recruitment exams conducted by state government and B. tech final year students are eligible to apply for vacancies recruit by state government. So first check eligibilty of the post you are applying for. Only in few posts You are eligibile for the any post. For mostly govt. posts, Only final year or graduate student are eligible to apply for competitve exams.

  • Yes, you can sit for government job while pursuing B.Tech. As you said, you are already a deploma degree holder so you are eligible to sit in SSC examination having 10+2 level. There are two levels of examination graduate level that is SSC-CGL and second is 10+2 level, so you can prepare for 10+2 level SSC examinations.
    You may get job for the position of clerk, office assistant etc. There are various jobs in PSU's for deploma degree holder where you can apply for technician, helper etc.
    At last, I would like to ask few questions. Would you join the job if you get qualified in any of deploma or 10+2 level of examinations? Will you stop pursuing B.Tech if you get job? So better to think twice before going ahead to get job while doing B.Tech.
    I would suggest you to do well in B.Tech and during these academics you may sit in any of examinations just to build up the confidence level and to judge yourself.
    After B.Tech you will definitely have graduate level of jobs having with high packages and lifestyle.
