Tips and tricks to crack the AMCAT test

We’re back at it again! After our last stint in exploring the Information gathering module for the AMCAT Test, we explore another module – common for B.Tech (C.S /C.E) and BCA – the AMCAT Computer Science module – what is it all about, understanding the subject, sample papers and the type of questions you may likely face on the piece.

What’s the AMCAT Computer Science module all about?

The AMCAT Computer Science module is present in both the general AMCAT test and the Engineering AMCAT test module (here too in both Computer Science and Computer Programming module). It is recommended to B.Tech (Engineering students from CS. CE and to those from BCA/BCM/B.Sc. (IT), B.Sc., M.Tech./M.E., MCA/PGDCA, M.Sc. and PG Diploma in Computer Science.

Separately, the Computer Programming module which is part of the General AMCAT tests the entry-level computer programming ability of the candidate through 25 questions, based on their understanding (without displaying coding abilities).

Meanwhile, the Computer Programming module for B.Tech (Engineering) is an advanced variant of this module, with added concepts.

The third AMCAT Computer Science module (Computer Science for B.Tech graduates) is a skill assessment on your understanding of the basics of operating systems, computer architecture, networks and database concepts.

How to Prepare for AMCAT Computer Science Modules:

i) Computer Programming (General):

The AMCAT Computer Programming module is a 35-minute, 25 question paper to test your exposure to concepts in the field.

Here is the detailed AMCAT syllabus for it:

Basic Programming:

  • Data Types
  • Iteration, Recursion, Decision
  • Procedure, functions and scope

Data Structures

  • Arrays, Linked Lists, Trees, Graphs
  • Stacks, Queues
  • Hash Tables
  • Heaps
  • Searching and Sorting

OOPs

  • Polymorphism
  • Abstraction
  • Encapsulation
  • Complexity Theory
Fresher jobs after Computer Programming (Non-Tech):

A high score in the AMCAT Computer Programming makes you eligible for the following opportunities amid fresher jobs -Technical Support Executive, Computer Engineer, Software Developer Web, System s/w, Product, Trainee, Testing Engineer, Research Engineer, Content Developer-IT and IT Recruiter.

ii) Computer Programming (Tech):

Similar to the non-tech computer programming module, students attempting this paper will also get a 25 question, 35-minute test to showcase their understanding of theoretical concepts, without actual coding.

Here is the detailed AMCAT syllabus for it:

Basic Programming:

  • Data Types
  • Iteration, Recursion, Decision
  • Procedure, functions and scope

Data Structures

  • Arrays, Linked Lists, Trees, Graphs
  • Stacks, Queues
  • Hash Tables
  • Heaps
  • Searching and Sorting

OOPs

  • Polymorphism
  • Abstraction
  • Encapsulation
  • Complexity Theory

Miscellaneous:

  • Searching and Sorting
  • Complexity Theory
Fresher jobs after Computer Programming (Tech):

A high score in the AMCAT Computer Programming makes you eligible for the following opportunities amid fresher jobs -Technical Support Executive, Computer Engineer, Software Developer Web, System s/w, Product, Trainee, Testing Engineer, Research Engineer, Content Developer-IT and IT Recruiter.

iii) Computer Science:

The Computer Science module, a 26-question skill assessment in 25 minutes – aimed at assessing where you stand in the basics of operating systems, computer architecture, computer networks and database concepts.

Here is the detailed AMCAT syllabus for it:

Operating System and Computer Architecture

  • Basics of OS and Computer Architecture
  • Process Management and Synchronization
  • Memory and I/O Management

DBMS

  • Data model
  • Relational Algebra and SQL
  • Normalization, Architecture, Indexing

Computer Networks

  • Basics of networking and communication
  • OSI, TCP/IP layers and protocols
  • Network Devices and Routing Algorithms
Fresher jobs after Computer Science:

A high score in the AMCAT Computer Science makes you eligible for the following opportunities amid fresher jobs – Software Developers, Database Administrator and Network Engineers.
