There are 20 subjects for the exam which divides entire Civil engineering syllabus in parts.
Speciality mpsc mes mains exam is , All the subjects have nearly equal weightage!
So preparaing for Mains exam becomes tricky.It requires proper planning with accurate strategy.
Suppose you are very good in some subjects i.e. like Geotechnical engineering or Environmental engineering but that subjects are too lengthy. If you more focused on such subjects it will be very time consuming.
On the other hand , some subjects are very short which can be completed within short period.
So the conclusion is , You require detailed study of syllabus and exam pattern with previous year question pattern.

|Building construction and materials||22|
|Estimating,costing and valuation||18|
One thing you must be observed from above charts, that all subjects have nearly equal weightage.
