BARC previous questions sample paper for electronics(ECE)-2016

Barc is one of the Nuclear research centre in india, every year they recruit students based on their performance in GATE score or  OCES/DGFS written exam and interview, Here I am discussing about the Electronics written exam I already posted a GATE score required to get a call from BARC.

 From 2012 onwards they conducting written exam online, and the paper consists of 100 questions (technical). I already posted expected Syllabus and important topics to concentrate and prepare.

As the exam is  online, there is no question to get papers outside. But Here I am giving idea by posting sample Question paper for electronics based on the words of successful students, who has wrote the last year Barc exam.

In sample paper i am giving questions from some topics i didnt cover all the syllabus,and i will update more questions later on.. I will update some books names to prepare for barc exam on my later post, not only for barc they useful for all psu’s and competitive exams.
