BARC Syllabus for CSE and Topics:
OCES exam syllabus is more or less similar to GATE exam. If you have prepared for GATE exam very well, it is very helpful for you.
As per my understanding, I am mentioning a few subjects from BARC syllabus for CSE. If you are a CS student, then you should put more focus on these following subjects.
#1 C Programming:
This is the only basic programming language you should good at.
#2 Computer Networks:
- First of all, you should know how does computer network work?
- Go through the OSI model layer architecture.
- Read about subnetting and supernetting. Find the difference between them.
What are the different types of IP address classes.
#3 Theory Of Computation:
Here, important topics are deadlock mechanism, process, thread and synchronization.
#7 Computer Organization and Architecture:
You can put light on microprocessor and micro-controller.
#8 Compiler Design:
#9 Digital Logic:
#10 Engineering Mathematics:
You can find some questions from Probability, Permutations, Combinations, Graph Theory, Set Theory, Algebra.
You may say I have listed all the GATE subject in BARC syllabus for CSE. But yes, all these topics are very important. At least you should know the basics behind each topic.
BARC Online Test Pattern and Experience:
Here are some quick tips I would like to share with your guys.
There will be 100 questions. You have to solve them in 3 hours. Time management is very crucial as like all competitive examination. You have to very quick to answer without making mistakes. Be confident while attending BARC exam and answer the questions.
The time I had attended BARC online exam, online test interface was not much user-friendly. And no need to much worry about it as it is going to be same for all candidates.
Tip: Make note of all the topics from BARC syllabus for CSE while preparing for the online test. And put more focus on the subject which you find difficult as every subject matters.
BARC Interview Questions and Experience:
After the exam, you will be called for an interview if you are shortlisted from online test.
I would say, this is a phase where the interviewer committee filters future scientists those will be work for BARC. :p I am very glad to get a call for BARC interview.
The interviewing committee is very polite and helpful.
Here is something very interesting. They asked me to choose five subjects of my interest. Choose subjects those are you finds comfortable. All the question in the interview was asked around/from these five subjects. If they ask you any question, tell them everything you know.
For clearing this interview, here are some tips you should follow.
- Keep five subject ready before the interview.
- You should have basic knowledge of each topic from these five subjects on your fingertips.
- All the interview questions will come from BARC syllabus for CSE.
The interviewer starts to build a momentum from your basics. And then keep asking each topic to the depth of your knowledge.
