There will be 100 questions in all. The questions are so designed that a good candidate will be able to answer 100 questions in 120 minutes.
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. General English, General Knowledge, Aptitude etc are not assessed.
Selection to OCES/DGFS 2016 is a two-step process: Screening to short-list candidates followed by Selection Interviews of the short-listed candidates.
There is a separate Selection Process for each of the disciplines except for Radiological Safety Engineering (RSE) which is not a separate discipline but an additional Training Scheme option for applicants in Nuclear Engineering, Physics and Chemistry disciplines
(I) Screening for Selection Interviews is based on two alternative methods:
(a) On the basis of Online Test:
- Online Test will be conducted in March, 2016 in each of the nine Engineering disciplines and five Science discipline in nearly forty cities spread across India.

Candidates will be screened in for Selection Interview on the basis of a valid GATE 2015 or GATE 2016 score in the applicable GATE subject. Applicants with a degree in ‘Nuclear Engineering’ will be screened in only on the basis of Online Test to be conducted as per schedule.
Candidates may note the following:
- At the time of application, candidates can choose any one or both of the above screening options. As the cutoff GATE scores for screening in to Selection Interviews will be finalized only after the conclusion of the Online Test, candidates are advised to maximize their chance of being screened in to the Selection Interview by availing both the Screening Channels (GATE score as well as Online Test) detailed above.
