DRDO-SET(SCIENTIST ENTRY TEST)

RAC advertises on DRDO Website (www.drdo.com & rac.drdo.in) & "The Employment News" (with curtain raiser) for Direct Recruitment of Scientists 'B'. The prescribed Essential Qualifications as mentioned in the advertisement are bare minimum and mere possession of same does not entitle candidates to be called for interview. Where number of applications received in response to an advertisement is large, it is not possible to interview all the candidates. RAC may, therefore, restrict the number of candidates for interview to a reasonable limit on the basis of qualifications/experience/ achievements higher than that of the minimum prescribed in the advertisement or by conducting a screening test named DRDO Scientists Entry Test (DRDO SET).

DRDO SET is conducted on all India basis on 1st Sunday of September every year in order to provide equal opportunity to all students from different educational institutions in view of the increasingly wide variation of marks due to increase in the number of educational institutions in the country. DRDO SET exam is of three hours duration consisting of two sections viz. Section 'A' of 100 questions to test the candidate's knowledge in the subject of their BE / BTech (for Engineering discipline) or MSc . ( for Science Discipline) and Section 'B' of 50 questions to test the candidate's ability in analytical and qualitative skills, current affairs and general awareness to test the aptitude and scientific knowledge required for Applied Research & Development. Based upon the organization's requirements, DRDO SET is conducted in Engineering Subjects such as Aero, Civil, Electrical, Chemical, Computer, Electronics/Electronics & Communication, Instrumentation, Mechanical, Metallurgy etc and Science subjects such as Chemistry, Physics and Math's/ Operations Research/ Statistics etc. These subjects are specified in the advertisement. DRDO SET exam is conducted only for those subjects where vacancies are sizable in number. Details of eligible candidates, examination schedule, result of the exam, schedule of interviews and list of selected candidates are made available time to time on DRDO website: www.drdo.com

In cases, where very few vacancies are available, NO SET exam is conducted and the individuals are directly called for the interview. The advertisement generally appears during the month of April / May every year.

Essential Qualifications

Atleast first class Bachelor's degree in Engineering or Technology in Following Branches:

• Electronics & Communication Engineering
• Mechanical Engineering
• Computer Science & Engineering
• Chemical Engineering
• Electrical Engineering
• Instrumentation Engineering
• Metallurgical Engineering.
• First class Master's Degree in Science in Chemistry/Physics from a recognized University in respective/relevant discipline.

Age Limit

The upper age limit is 28 years . It is relaxable for SC/ST/OBC/HH/OH candidates in respect of vacancies reserved for them as per rules in vogue. Age is also relaxable for Armed Forces Personnel as per rules in vogue.

Nationality

Only Indian nationals need apply.

The DRDO SET examination is of three hours duration. Each candidate appearing for the Test will be given one Question Booklet containing objective type questions, in two separate sections.

Section ‘A’ will consist of 100 questions to test the candidate’s knowledge in the subject as per syllabus given in Section V of this brochure. Each question will have 4 choices one of which will be correct. Each correct answer will fetch 4 marks. For each incorrect answer, 1 mark will be deducted. Section ‘B’ will consist of 50 questions to test the candidate’s aptitude relevant to Applied Research & Development. Each question will have 4 choices one of which will be correct. Each correct answer will fetch 2 marks. For each incorrect answer, ½ mark will be deducted

Section ‘B’ will test the candidate’s aptitude relevant to Applied Research & Development. The distributions of 50 questions for Section ‘B’ are given below:

• Logical Relations 10 Questions
• Spatial Reasoning 10 Questions
• Concept Formation 10 Questions
• Abstract Reasoning 10 Questions
• Numerical Reasoning 10 Questions

50 Questions

The merit list will be prepared, based on the marks obtained by the candidates in Section 'A' and Section 'B' and this list will be used for short listing the candidates for interview purely on merit basis subject to minimum Qualifying criteria as decided by RAC.

The final selection of the candidates will be based purely on their performance in the interview in which subject knowledge and / or job oriented aptitude will be tested. In accordance with the subject-wise merit, the offer of appointment to the selected candidates will be restricted to the number of vacancies.

However, the number of vacancies may vary. The appointment, however, will be subject to satisfying conditions like qualifying the Medical examination prescribed for Group 'A' Technical posts of Govt. of India with Field Service Liability and character verification, besides verification of SC/ST/OBC/HH/OH certificate if applicable. All Scientists 'B' to be inducted through DRDO SET 2008 will undergo for Post Induction Training (POINT) at Pune. Selected candidates have the liability to serve anywhere in India.
