I have given the examination on 30th June'13 and I want to share my experience with my readers :) .

I applied for the DAC and DITISS courses so I have given only Section A and B exams so there are details of these two sections only. First, I would like say something about CDAC for those reader who doesn't know anything about this examination.

Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) is the premier R&D organization of the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), Ministry of Communications & Information Technology (MCIT) for carrying out R&D in IT, Electronics and associated areas. Different areas of C-DAC, had originated at different times, many of which came out as a result of identification of opportunities.

They takes an entrance examination called CCAT. The examination held two times in a year. One in the month of June/July and second in the month of December/January. The duration of this courses are six months. After completion of any course you will get a certification PG Diploma.

Syllabus of two sections and it's duration are given below : 

Section A :

  • English - There were five questions from a very small passage. Five questions of jumbled sentences and five questions from prepositions (Read English Grammar book and  any Competitive English book ).
  • Quantitative Aptitude - Questions from Problem on trains, Ages, Profit and loss, Pipes, Mensuration, Time, distance and work etc. (Read  Quants by RS Agarwal ).
  • Logical Reasoning - Questions from Analytical reasoning, Coding decoding, Situations Determining, Blood relations, Analogy, Series, etc. (Read Verbal and non verbal by RS Agarwal). 
These were the questions of Section A. I suggest you that don't panic during examination just focus on questions, read questions carefully and maintain your speed and accuracy.

Section B :


  • C : Logical programming questions so focus on your c programming skills and else basic c questions. 
  • C++ : Very easy questions, only basic theoretical questions were there. 
  • DS : Questions from Search, Sorting, Stack Queue and Linklist only. 
  • Networking : Read only first two chapters of any Computer Network book. 
  • OS : Read Galvin's book and focus on Deadlock, Memory Management, Segmentation etc. 

These are the two sections which was asked in 30th June'13 CCAT's paper. I hope it might be helpful for upcoming examination. If you like my efforts then give me some feedback for sure. 

Thanks guys for reading this...
