I could remember only 80 questions out of 100. If anyone who appeared in the test does have any more questions not included above, send them to me! The question order is jumbled, the questions of Subject Part weren’t classi ed in subcategories in the actual test.
So, how was the test? Seemed a little dif cult to me at very rst. Some questions were knavish, many were irrelevant to Power Engineering and no doubt some were easy too! But overall test was satisfactory (to many) including the General Portion. If you can attempt ~40% questions right now, you’re expected to attempt 75%+ questions with proper preparation.
More than 60% questions are numerical types and calculation based that’s why a non
programmable scienti c calculator is allowed in the test (The calculator is much helpful in the test, much more than you imagine, bring an original scienti c calculator with natural display, download its user manual from its site and read the complete manual, the one/two hour(s) you spend on reading the calculator manual will help you save time and earn extra marks during the test). I solved about 45
questions using advanced natural display calculator which I couldn’t have solved with a simple scienti c
calculator or if solved with simple scienti c calculator would have taken me twice or thrice more time!
What to prepare for the test? Preparing irrelevant subject matter for years will have no
practicable effect on your test results. Try to be focused, prepare well, and try to avoid far ung rote learning. Here are the outline of the Test as supplied by PIEAS:
The question paper is divided into two parts i.e. Part (A) and (B). There will be 50 questions in Part (A) and 50 Questions in Part (B). Part (A) is the general part to be attempted by all the candidates (except MBBS/Medical Sciences students) whereas Part (B) is the subject part having subject papers. Only the subject paper relevant to the candidate’s academic background may be attempted by the candidate. The candidate should mention the subject paper he/she is attempting by lling the appropriate section of the
answer sheet. The maximum time allowed is 3 hours. Each question carries 3 marks and 1 mark will be
deducted for a wrong answer.
A. General Part:
i. It consists of three elds namely Mathematics, Physics and English.
ii. General Part must be attempted by all the candidates
iii. General Part will have 50 questions in all. 20 from Mathematics & Physics respectively and 10 from English
a) Mathematics (Level F.Sc and B.Sc) Topics: Basic Calculus, Differential Equations, Complex Variables, Boolean Algebra, Vector Algebra, Matrices, Statistics
b) Physics (Level F.Sc and B.Sc)
c) English
B. Subject Part: It consists of 50 question from Electrical/Electronics/Telecommunication in the following proportion:
Electrical/Electronics/Telecommunication

Electronics, Electronic Circuits and Components 
20% 
Controls and Communications Systems 
15%

General Part Preparation:
Mathematics: Prepare F.Sc Part 1 maths: Ch. 1 to Ch. 7 (Skip Trigonometry & 8 chapter). Each
chapter is equally important and keep in mind that Test is numerical based. Memorize formulas and work
out with calculations. From F.Sc Part 2 Maths: Skip Ch. 5 and prepare remaining all 6 chapters (you may
th
skip Ch. No. 6 too, but it’s better to prepare some basics of 6 chapter). Pay special attention to Ch. 2 & 3.
Though each chapter shares equal importance in test, one or two questions are included from each
chapter roughly.
th
Physics: Go through all the chapter of Physics F.Sc Part 1 and Part 2 books. Learn all the formulas
and be good with calculations. Last 3,4 chapters of 2
nd
year Physics are important.
English: English has nothing to prepare, because no speci ed course can be allotted for English
preparation. This is the rst portion of the General test consisting of 10 questions. 1 two are from
comprehension, so they are easy. Next 34 are synonyms & antonyms, they’re easy too but confusing, tick
them carefully.
And remaining questions are correct form of verbs, prepositions or correction of grammar mistakes.
Subject Preparation:
st
Basic Electrical Engineering: Revise Circuit Analysis I & II from David Irwin’s book or any other
Basic Circuit Analysis book (1 order & 2 order circuits are important). Review EMT from William H. Hayt’s Book or Alexander Sadiko’s. Learn all basic equations (i.e. Maxwell’s, Poisson, Laplace, Ampere, Green/Stokes Theorems etc.). Have a basic review of DLD book by Thomas L. Floyd. Pay special attention to combinational logic circuits (They’re important). Have an insight of sequential logic. You may skip K maps and other lengthy portions.
st
nd
Electronics, Electronic Circuits and Components: For this portion, prepare thoroughly Electronic
Circuit & Devices by Robert T. Paynter or Thomas Floyd’s Electronic Devices. FET, JFET and MOSFET’s
components, circuits, biasing and analysis is REALLY important. Learn them by heart (in fact brain :P).
Controls and Communications Systems: For control systems, review Control System by Norman S. Nice. (Samarajit Ghosh’s book is not up to standard). Revise basics of Open loop & Feedback Control systems. Stable & UnStable system conditions, poleszeros plots, bode plots, frequency response, Phase margin, gain margin, root locus and all basic relevant topics.
Communication Systems: (Advance topics from this portion are asked in test) Prepare Laplace & Fourier transforms (important). Harmonics, AM & FM modulation techniques, Slew rate, Fourier magnitude &
phase plots, lters (IIR & FIR). You may refer to Modern Digital & Analog Communication Systems by B. P.
Lathi. Also review topics from Signal & Systems and DSP. Prepare basics (i.e. LTI systems, signals & their properties, convolution, Fourier series & transform plots of a signal etc.)
Power: Prepare AC & DC machines from chapman. Revise selective topics of Power Engineering from Principals of Power Systems by V.K Mehta. Power calculations are very important (i.e. nding base values, Impedances, Real & Reactive power owing through a circuit, capacitance & inductance values). Revise Power generation too (it’s important). Also revise Power Electronics topics especially for SCR, IGBT, MOSFET, BJT, DIODES, TRIACS & DIACS; their properties, construction, circuits & applications.
This is the complete course outline for M.S fellowship test. But you must prepare more than that mentioned above in order to succeed. By carefully observing the 2014 test questions, you may nd out
the exact (But up to a limited accuracy) topics to prepare for a speci c subject for coming year’s test. For
example from Circuit Analysis, questions of Series Parallel combination of Resistors, 1 order & 2 order circuits, Maximum Power transfer theorem, Basic Current/Voltage division, KCL, KVL are much important because questions related to these topics have been found in Fellowship tests. For instance, at least 3 questions were related to FET, JFET, & MOSFET as listed in above questions, so this is most important topic! Same is true for OpAmp.
st
nd
Carefully read the sample paper; also search Internet for past papers for PIEAS B.S and M.S fellowship tests (2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013; 2014 is given above). At least 34 questions (or may more) are from past papers. And many more or related to past paper questions with just small changes in values etc.!
How much time should you allot for test preparation? The answer to this question is quite important for an aspirant candidate to succeed. The time you set aside for your test preparation depends on a number of factors; you have to ask a couple of questions to yourself:
• What is you previous Knowledge Level about the subject(s)?
• Are you starting from scratch?
• Do you plan to revise only or to read the topics thoroughly?
• What is your intelligence level?
• How much are you eager to learn? What is your Method of Revision?
So, scrutinize each subject and its subtopics according to Previous Knowledge, Type of Revision etc. and you may be able to allocate speci c time for each subject. Manage your time well and you may be
able to revise a lot of material in shorter time span! :) For just to take an example, I completed my revision in 45 days from 04 June, 2014 to 08 June, 2014. I revised only F.Sc Maths and Physics books, because I
had left with no time for Subject Preparation (as 8 semester’s nals started from 10 June). Then I got
th
th
nd
one and half day more after 2 paper of nals. I again reviewed Maths & Physics one time and looked upon some topics from engineering subjects. That was all of my preparations!
Attempting a MCQs based test is itself an art. Mastering that art with a proper commingle of preparation will get you through any test. You’ve 3 hours and 100 MCQs; spend each second of available time wisely. In the rst round, attempt only easiest question which you can solve in less than 30 seconds. Then in the next round try moderate questions. And in the last, attack the Hard questions, answer those which you can easily solve, don’t spend a lot of time on a single questions. Use your Brain & Calculator collectively.
attempting questions in the test, beware of the –ve marking, don’t attempt a question unless you’re completely sure for the correct answer. Never answer a question by mere random guessing. If you don’t know an answer to question, use educated guesses that may increase your chance for guessing a correct answer.
While
Read the question and its answer choices carefully, now relate each answer choice to the question and nd the chances for this choice to be a correct answer. Use the techniques of reverse solving, inference from other option, use analogies and make a decision that the choice being considered can be an answer or not. Similarly, work out all the option choices and each time roll out the choice which has no (or relatively lesser) chance to be a correct answer and this way you may increase the probability for guessing a correct answer.
If 4 multiple choices are given for a question then you have 25% (1/4) probability of guessing a correct answer randomly. If you eliminate one choice then you’ve 33% chance and if you eliminate two
answer choices your correct guessing chance rises up to 50% and so on. I answered 98 questions. About 15 of them were educated guesses, 70+ were correct (according to me), so I expect to get 220+ marks out of 300. I think 200 marks are enough for a candidate to be shortlisted for the interview!
