About C-CAT 2019

The Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Pune University conducts the Computerized Common Admission Test (C-CAT) twice a year for admissions to various PG Diploma courses. The June session of C-DAC's C-CAT is held for August admissions and the December session is conducted for the February admissions. C-DAC C-CAT is carried out for two days out of which candidates can opt for any one of the days. C-DAC CCAT is a national level exam with three categories of the question paper. The eligibility criteria differ for all three but the common eligibility requirement is that the candidate must be a graduate in engineering or equivalent or a postgraduate in engineering sciences with the corresponding basic degree. C-DAC CCAT application form needs to be filled and submitted in online mode only. Thereafter, the admit card/ hall ticket of C-DAC's CCAT also needs to be obtained online since no candidate will receive his/her admit cards via post. Depending on the category opted by the candidates, he/ she has to appear for just one test paper (Section A) or two test papers (Section A + B) or all the three test papers (Section A + B + C). C-DAC's CCAT contains multiple-choice questions carrying 3 marks each. 1 mark is deducted for every wrong response. After the declaration of C-DAC CCAT result, candidates will have to participate in the online counselling sessions for choice filling. Thereafter, candidates will have to report to their allocated counselling venues for document verification.

sir i have done B.Tech ec in 2008.any chance for placement.my age is 35 year.

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 1st Nov, 2019

hey,

age is not a bar to get your self suitable for job. how ever you need to start from scratch. if you have done any non technical job or right now you get offers to get any non technical job you should join. also you may join part time mba or pgdm course if you want to change field. if you want to do technical job then learn cutting edge technology , do some software courses and start looking in start up companies. see if you have confidence to do some thing you may surely get success.

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 24th Oct, 2019

hey,

see you will be asked about what you have done in those 2 years during the placement. if you can answer properly that will not be a problem to achieve the job offer.  also if you have learned any new cutting edge technology or program you can mention about this. also if you have any project idea or trying to make you can also tell them about this.
