SELECTION PROCESSSelection to OCES/DGFS is a two-step process: screening to short-list candidates followed by interview of the short-listed candidates. Except for RSE discipline (code 44), there is a separate selection process for each of the other disciplines listed in Table-1(refer website). RSE is available only as an additional option to applicants for Physics and Chemistry disciplines (codes 41 and 42).
1. Screening for the Engineering disciplines (codes 21-29) is done by two alternative methods:a) GATE Score:Cut-off GATE Score for short-listing candidates for interview is decided after the last date of receipt of applications. b) Written Test: It is conducted in each of the seven Engineering disciplines (codes 21-27). Travel Allowance is not paid for appearing in it. The details of Written test, scheduled on Sunday, May 25, 2008; will be announced later. 2. Screening for the Science disciplines (codes 41-43) is done by two alternative methods:
(a) Written Test:
It is conducted in each of the three Science disciplines (codes 41-43) at the centers listed in Table-5 along with their codes. Travel Allowance is not paid for appearing in the written test. Written test is scheduled on Sunday, February 24, 2008. Syllabus of each Written Test discipline is as follows: Physics: Mathematics during BSc and MSc (Physics & Electronics) or equivalently BE (Engg. Physics). Chemistry: Std XII (Mathematics), Physics during BSc, and MSc (Chemistry). Biosciences: Std XII (Mathematics), BSc (Physics & Chemistry - Bio/ Agri) and MSc (all eligible Post graduate specializations mentioned in the OCES/ DGFS-2008 Advertisement). (b) GATE Score:
