Prep Materials for BARC OCES DGFS Exam is elusive. Even though you may Google a hundred times, Sample Papers and Prep Books are hard to spot. Therefore this blog article has been posted, to give you the study materials for BARC OCES DGFS 2015 Exam. It presents the Syllabus, Sample Papers & Prep Books, based on two very important exams - GATE and NET.
BARC OCES DGFS Exam 2015 Pattern:
The online exam is held for eight Engineering disciplines (Chemical, Civil, Computers, Electrical, Electronics, Instrumentation, Mechanical and Metallurgy) and five Science subjects (Physics, Chemistry, Biosciences, Geology and Geophysics). There is no separate exam for Radiological Safety Engineering (RSE), which is considered as an additional Training Scheme option for applicants in Physics and Chemistry disciplines. The online exam is held in thirty five cities spread across India.
The OCES DGFS 2015 Exam consists of 100 questions and each question is worth 3 marks - therefore there are 300 marks in total. The duration is 2 hours. Thus you have 72 seconds to answer each question. But beware! there is negative marking in BARC OCES DGFS Exam: minus one for each wrong answer.
Syllabus for BARC OCES DGFS Exam 2015:
BARC has not specified any specific syllabus for this exam. As I quote the notification:
"The syllabus for the Online Exam is specific to the Engineering discipline which a candidate has selected. The questions are intended to assess the basic understanding of subjects in the area of the Engineering discipline selected by the candidate. Emphasis would be on the knowledge and problem solving ability rather than on the memory of the candidate."But you must be relieved to know that only the subject specific questions are asked in the online exam - there is no test sections to check your mental aptitude like :General English, General Knowledge, Test of Reasoning etc.
So how do you prepare for this exam? My advise would be to make your preparation based on following two national level exams:
For the Science disciplines: Use the Syllabus and test prep materials for the CSIR-UGC NET subject, specific to your discipline. To find this, please go through my article: CSIR NET 2014 Syllabus, Sample papers & Books: Prep Materials.
