    • The whole paper had only technical questions. No quantitative, No reasoning, No verbal or non-verbal questions were asked. It was a fully technical paper.

    As far as I know NIC Does lot of Maintenance/Creating Govt. Websites . So we can except questions in Web technologies
    and Databases.

    NIC Exam syllabus --

    Data structures: Notion of abstract data types, Stack, Queue, List, Set, String, Tree, Binary search tree, Heap, Graph;

    Programming Methodology: C programming, Program control (iteration, recursion, Functions), Scope, Binding, Parameter passing, Elementary concepts of Object oriented, Functional and Logic Programming;

    Algorithms for problem solving: Tree and graph traversals, Connected components, Spanning trees, Shortest paths; hashing, Sorting, Searching; Design techniques (Greedy, Dynamic Programming, Divide-and-conquer);

    Compiler Design: Lexical analysis, Parsing, Syntax directed translation, Runtime environment, Code generation, Linking (static and dynamic); Operating Systems : Classical concepts (concurrency, synchronization, deadlock), Processes, threads and Inter-process communication, CPU scheduling, Memory management, File systems, I/O systems, Protection and security.

    Computer Networks: ISO/OSI stack, sliding window protocol, LAN Technologies (Ethernet, Token ring), TCP/UDP, IP, Basic concepts of switches, gateways, and routers COMPUTER HARDWARE

    Digital Logic: Logic functions, Minimization, Design and synthesis of Combinational and Sequential circuits; Number representation and Computer Arithmetic (fixed and floating point);

    Computer Organization: Machine instructions and addressing modes, ALU and Data-path, hardwired and micro-programmed control, Memory interface, I/O interface (Interrupt and DMA mode), Serial communication interface, Instruction pipelining, Cache, main and secondary storage.

    Some of the Questions I remember from the NIC Exam--

    1) class test

    public static void main(String args[]){

    short s=0x00FE;
    byte b=(byte)s;

    System.out.println("b is" +b);


    } Answer is -2 I have executed this.

    2) Average waiting time question from Operating systems.

    3) Select * FROM customers where customer_name like '_%cal'

    4 options to choose what exactly the meaning of the above
