EKT 2014 2 Electrical And Electronic paper

Engineering Knowledge test [EKT] paper was for the first time introduced in 2014-2 AFCAT exam. There were a total of 50 questions related to different subjects of electrical, electronic and communication engineering. The question were very basic in nature and very few numerical were asked. The engineering syllabus that is asked in EKT exam is very wide, so proper preparation is required.
