Share time with friends
 Jump over obstacles
 With care
 And caution
 Face challenges
 Remember to laugh
 Cooperate
 Above all...be ready for adventure
 Stick together
 And you will be able to go far
 Very far.....
 Well, not quite that far....
 Always take time to smell the flowers
 Don't forget to relax and enjoy

And dont forget  those  who likes u very much
Happy New Year-2012.

Selection process
Selection to OCES/DGFS-2012 is a two-step process: Screening to short-list candidates followed by selection interview of the short-listed candidates. Except for RSE discipline (code 44), there is a separate selection process for each of the other disciplines listed in Table-1. RSE is available only as an additional option to applicants for Physics and Chemistry disciplines (codes 41 and 42).
1) Screening for the Engineering disciplines (codes 21-29) is based on two alternative methods:
(a) Cut-off GATE Score for short-listing candidates for interview will be declared on the website whose address will be separately announced in advertisements which will appear in leading national dailies in February and March, 2012.
(b) Written Test: It will be conducted in each of the seven Engineering disciplines (codes 21-27) except in Civil Engineering (Code 29). Candidates who do not opt for GATE or who do not qualify on the basis of GATE Score may take the Written Test. Travel Allowance is not paid for appearing in it. Written Test, which is likely to be online, will be held in the end of April 2012.
2) Screening for Science disciplines (codes 41-43 & 45-46) is based on two alternative methods:
(a) Written Test: It is conducted in each of the above mentioned disciplines (codes 41-43 & 45-46). Travel Allowance is not paid for appearing in it. Written test is scheduled on Sunday, February 26, 2012.
(b) GATE Score: In this case, merit list in each of the Science disciplines (codes 41-43 & 45-46) is prepared on the basis of valid GATE Score of the applicants. Cut-off GATE score and Written Test marks for short-listing candidates for interview in each discipline are decided after the last date of receipt of applications.
(c) Science candidates have the option of utilizing either one or both of the screening avenues detailed above.
(d) Students graduating with Masters Degree from University of Mumbai – Department of Atomic Energy Centre for Excellence in Basic Sciences ( UM-DAE CBS) and National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER) , Bhubaneswar, and whose Cumulative Grade Performance Average (CGPA) is greater than or equal to 7.5 on a scale of 10 will directly be screened into the interview stage, provided they meet all other eligibility requirements of the OCES/DGFS-2012 programme. Such candidates should forward their applications through the Directors of their institutes in the forms provided by them.
Candidates applying for Science disciplines (codes 41-43 & 45-46) may opt to appear for Written Test and also apply for selection on the basis of valid GATE Score.
Selection Interviews of shortlisted candidates will be conducted in BARC Training School, Mumbai. Outstation applicants will be paid two-way second-class sleeper train fare by shortest route or actual fare whichever is less. Probable period of selection interviews is during May-June, 2012. Names of short-listed candidates in science disciplines will be declared on this website from April 5, 2012 onwards.  Short-listed candidates in Engineering disciplines, qualified on the basis of a valid GATE  score will be able to choose an interview slot based on availability from April 6, 2012 onwards whereas shortlisted Engineering candidates qualified on the basis of Written Test will be able to choose an interview slot based on availability from May 16, 2012 onwards. Engineering candidates must visit the website for Engineering online applications for this purpose.
Final Selection is solely on the basis of performance in interview subject to medical fitness. This selection process would also be used for selecting candidates for research based academic programmes and for Diploma in Radiological Physics programme of HBNI. Eligibility criteria and associated details will be advertised separately.
