ONGC GT Exam Pattern, Papers & BooksThis blog post follows my earlier blog article titled: ONGC GT Recruitment-2012 Notification, Eligibility & Forms, which helps you to download the notification as well as how to apply for the same. The focus of this post is on how to prepare for the ONGC Graduate Trainee (GT) Exam. It at first gives you the pattern of ONGC GT written test and than the sources of sample papers & books for its preparation.

ONGC GT Exam Pattern:
In its recruitment notification, ONGC has not elaborated much on what would be the pattern of the ONGC GT Exam 2012 other than just specifying that:
1.0 The exam paper would be of Objective type (i.e. Multiple Choice Questions).
2.0 The exam paper would consist of three sections:
i) General Awareness test section– common to all.
ii) Specialization subject test section – specific to your subject.
iii) Aptitude test section– common to all, containing question from following areas:
     a) Comprehension.
     b) Reasoning (Verbal/Non-verbal).
     c) Numerical Ability/Quantitative Aptitude.
     d) Data Interpretation.
3.0 Duration for ONGC GT Exam 2012 is 3 hours.

ONGC GT Exam Pattern
Other than above, the recruitment notification does not say anything about how many questions are likely to be asked in each paper and what would be the mark distribution.

This may vary with the question/marks in the actual exam you are going to face; nevertheless, this test pattern gives you a direction to prepare:

There is a change in the pattern of ONGC GT Exam from this year onwards, in ONGC GT Exam 2012, Aptitude test section has been included. Previously, there were only two sections: General Awareness & Subject Specialization.
