NIELIT (DOEACC ) conducts examination like O, A, B and C level but in in every level you have to clear C language Paper called Programming and Problem Solving Through C . In this post you I will Discuss regarding its Syllabus.

The objectives of this paper(Programming and Problem Solving Through C) are to make the student understand programming language, programming, concepts of Loops, reading a set of Data, step wise refinement, Functions, Control structure, Arrays. After completion of this course the student is expected to analyze the real life problem and write a program in ‘C’ language to solve the problem. The main emphasis of the course will be on problem solving aspect i.e. developing proper algorithms.

**After completion of the course the student will be able to**

- Develop efficient algorithms for solving a problem Use the various constructs of a programming language viz. conditional, iteration and recursion.
- Implement the algorithms in “C” language. Use simple data structures like arrays, stacks and linked list in solving problems.
- Handling File in “C”.
