National Thermal Power Corporation Whole-Testpaper Contributed by abhinav kumar shrivastwa updated on May 2019

hi friends, I am abhinav B.Tech MECH. I appeared for NTPC written test on 12th april held on all India basis. here i am giving the questions as many i remember:
the paper consisted of 2 sections-120 technical and 50 questions on general aptitude. the aptitude section consisted of questions from english & aptitude. There were no questions from General knowledge.

5 questions on reading comprehension
5 questions on bar chart
rest were mathematical & logical reasoning.

I had attempted 88 in Ist section & 43 in 2nd section. I had cleared the written test and got a call for GD & interview on 9th july at PMI, Noida. the interview were going on since 1st june. I could not clear the interview round. But i will try next time.
