Hello Infoscions,

It has been hard to find time to post. Let me tell you all about my Compre Hands On and Theory.

First, you will have Hands On which was on Friday for us. There are 2 parts in hands on: C language and RDBMS. C language program has 30 marks and RDBMS has 20 marks. You don’t need to have the complete program functioning well to score. It is not that you will not be awarded anything if your program does not run well. There are marks for indentation, including files, declaring arrays etc etc.. So there are cases in which people score 26/30 without the program running.

In RDBMS, also you can score well as there are marks for creating tables and inserting values. So Hands On is scoring. But ya, I accidently kicked the CPU switch and lost about 45 min’s work which really made me go hasty. And haste made waste and I cud not do my C language program properly. So do save your work every now and then when you are coding.

In Theory, there are 50 questions to be answered in 75 mins. All are 1 mark questions. Most of the questions will be from RDBMS and C language. As these subjects have high weightage in terms of course time also. Both these subjects together take 16 working days out of 29 working days of generic training. So you HAVE to be good at these. I am better at RDBMS than C language. But some people find RDBMS difficult. So it depends. If you would have had prior exposure to C language then you will find it easier than RDBMS. But believe me, RDBMS is also easy. The questions asked were not difficult but tricky. You will feel that you knew it but you were fooled. After coming out of class and discussing with your friend, you will say, “Oh, stupid me. How did I make such a mistake??!!” So you would be knowing the concept well but not reading the question and options properly will make you lose marks. Even I too realized afterwards that many of my answers were wrong.

So for me both hands on and theory were just ok. I wish I just pass. I wont be surprised if I get re-compre. I will tell you how to avoid the mistakes that I made in my next post. Bye for now.
