PGDCA Exam Pattern - Exam Mode

Generally, the college or university conducts the exams of various theoretical subjects under the PGDCA Course in an offline mode, and the exams of practical subjects like Programming languages C++ or Java, are organized in an online mode.

The candidates are advised to check the seal of their answer sheet before writing the exam.  In case if any of the candidates find it broken, they should immediately contact the concerned Examiner.

Generally, the colleges or universities ask descriptive questions in the exams of most of the subjects taught under the PGDCA Course. The candidates have to write a complete 1 page or 2-page answer according to the word limit prescribed for a particular question. 

The candidates are expected to write their answers in bullet points so that the Invigilator can easily understand their point of view.
