Questions will be of three categories, divided as per following table.



Category 1

Category 2

Category 3

Marking System –

Category 1:

(a) Only one option is correct, correct response will yield 1 (one) mark.

(b) For incorrect response, 25% of full mark (1/4) would be deducted and

(c) For more than one answer indicated against a particular question in the OMR sheet; the said answer will be treated as incorrect response/answer. Marks will be deducted on the basis of rule enumerated in Clause (b) above.

Category 2:

(a) Only one option is correct, correct response will yield 2 (two) marks.

(b) For incorrect response, 25% of full marks (1/2) would be deducted and

(c) For more than one answer indicated against a particular question in the OMR sheet; the said answer will be treated as incorrect response/answer. Marks will be deducted on the basis of rule enumerated in Clause (b) above.

Category 3:

(a) More than one option may be correct and marking of all correct options will yield 2 (two) marks.

(b) For any combination of answers containing one or more incorrect responses, net mark awarded will be zero (0) and

(c) For partially correct response without any incorrect marking:

Marks awarded = 2 X (no of correct responses) / (total no of correct options)

How to prepare

Preparation Strategy

The syllabus provides engineering aspirants a topic-wise breakup of each section- Physics Chemistry Mathematics Candidates appearing in this entrance exam can check last year’s syllabus of all subjects to get an idea about this year’s curriculum. Candidates can get subject-wise syllabus in easily downloadable PDF formats. Practicing model papers will aid the candidates in knowing their strong and weak areas. These practice papers are like the actual question paper of this exam. Model Papers help in better preparation and candidates can practise these anytime as per their convenience. Download and practice Sample Papers of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics of last few years.

Make a proper Time Table

It is very important that you make a time table and stick to it and you will have an exact idea of what you are required to study and the time required for it.

Concept clarity rather than rote learning

It is essential that you have a clear idea of the formulas and concepts rather than rote learning of things for the papers. While you might require it for memorizing formulas it is important that for other stuff you make sure you clear your basis and concepts before moving on.

Prepare Notes

It is very important make small notes or a comprehensive list of formulas on each covered topic and chapter which will come in handy at the time of revision. This will require you to be regular with your work but will surely make things easy at the time of revision.
