The question paper will be of objective type and will consist of three separate sections on Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.The answer for each question is to be recorded on a specially designed machine-gradable Optical Response Sheet.The candidate is expected to choose the correct answer options and record his/her response by darkening the appropriate bubble using hard black (HB) pencils only.
Marking more than one answer for any given question will render the response invalid. Correct answers will be awarded three marks each. Every incorrect answer will be awarded one negative mark.

Candidates should start preparing for the test at the earliest. They should try to work out last years sample question paper in order to become acquainted with the syllabus and the pattern of the paper. Candidate’ should also try to learn short cut formulas and other simple tricks to solve the mathematical problems. Revision will also be a good option to prepare for the test.
