**Questions and Marks – 75 Questions / 300 Marks**

**Exam Duration – 3 hours ( 180 minutes)**

- Mathematics – 100 Marks
- 20 Multiple choice questions ( Section A)
- 10 Numerical questions, out of which you must answer only 5 ( Section B)
- So, you will be answering overall 25 Questions in Mathematics

- Physics – 100 Marks
- 20 Multiple choice questions ( Section A)
- 10 Numerical questions, out of which you must answer only 5 ( Section B)
- So, you will be answering overall 25 Questions in Mathematics

- Chemistry – 100 Marks
- 20 Multiple choice questions ( Section A)
- 10 Numerical questions, out of which you must answer only 5 ( Section B)
- So, you will be answering overall 25 Questions in Mathematics

For Numerical Value based questions , you have to enter the correct numerical value in integer/ decimal notation. If the answer contains more than 3 digits in the decimal notation like 5.2369, then you need to round off to 3 decimals like 5.237. You should not exceed 3 decimal digits.

**Negative Marks:**

- Each subject has 20 Multiple choice questions (Section A). For a correct answer you get 4 marks.
- For an incorrect answer, you will get one negative mark
- Each subject has 10 Numerical questions (Section B), out of which you have to answer only 5
- These numerical questions have no negative marking

**Example of negative marking:**

Assume, you have answered in Mathematics all 20 Multiple choice questions (MCQ) and 5 Numerical questions.

Let’s take only 18 MCQ questions are correct and 3 numerical questions are correct.

So, for correct answers you get marks – 18*4 + 3*4 = 84

But you answered 2 MCQs wrong – Negative marks = 2*1 = 2

There are no negative marks for Numerical questions.

So, your overall marks in Mathematics = 84-2 = 82

The same way for Physics and Chemistry marks.

**Summary**

If you are not sure of correct answer for a MCQ question, do not select any answer.

Even if you have selected an answer, do a final check , and clear the answer option before you submit the exam.
