While posting a previous blog article on BARC OCES DGFS program titled: BARC OCES DGFS 2012 Notification, Eligibility & Forms
I had wanted also to post prep materials for the Written test of BARC OCES DGFS exam to help you prepare for the same. However, while locating the sample papers and books for BARC OCES DGFS exam on the net, although I had invested considerable time, I could not find that much of noteworthy materials. Therefore, along with a short discussion on the exam pattern/selection process of BARC OCES written test, I would advise you to base your preparation for this recruitment exam on GATE exam.
Exam pattern/selection process of BARC OCES DGFS exam:
Selection process for BARC OCES DGFS program is based on the performance in interview. But to be selected for the BARC Interview, you have to clear the shortlisting based on two alternative modes: i) The written test or ii) GATE score.
While applying for the BARC OCES DGFS program, you have to chose which option you would like to take - the
written test or the GATE score. This option is available for all seven engineering and six science disciplines as given in my previous blog post
, except for Civil Engineering discipline. There is no written test for Civil Engineering discipline and hence you have to appear in GATE and present your GATE score to BARC for shortlisting.
The written exam of BARC OCES/DGFS program consists of a two hour exam, consisting of hundred multiple choice Objective type questions. Each question is worth 3 marks. But however, a word of caution - there is negative marking in BARC OCES/DGFS exam. Each wrong answer would fetch you -1. The answers have to be marked in OMR (Optical Mark Reader) sheets.
The BARC OCES/DGF 2011 written exam would be held on following dates:
For Science disciplines: Sunday, February 27, 2011
For Engineering disciplines: Sunday, April 24, 2011.
BARC OCES DGFS exam Sample papers/Books:
As I had told you previously, there is hardly any material worth the name forBARC OCES DGFS exam. And I could locate only this sample paper
from BARC website, which can just throw you some light on what are the standard of questions.
Also, I could not find any book specific to BARC exam.
Therefore, please base your preparation on the basis of GATE exam. I would also be on the lookout for more Sample Papers & Books on BARC OCES DGFS Exam and post the same here as and when I find them. Therefore please keep visiting this blog!
