The questions for Biological Sciences (BL) and Biotechnology (BT) Test Papers will have 100 Objective type questions, each having 1 mark. Each question will have four choices as possible answers, of which, only one will be correct. Candidates will get negative 1/3 for each wrong answer. These Test Papers have to be answered in an Objective Response Sheet (ORS) by darkening the appropriate bubble using a black ink ball point pen. Since the ORS will be evaluated by electronic means, it is imperative that the instructions given on the ORS are carefully read and followed by the candidates.
The Question-cum-Answer Booklets for the Test Papers CY, GG, MA, MS and PH will consist of two parts (Part-I and Part-II). The weightage of Part-I is 60% and that of Part-II is 40%. Part-I will consist of multiple choice questions (MCQ). Some of the questions are of 1 mark each and others are of 2 marks each. Answers to this part have to be filled in the ORS by darkening the appropriate bubble as explained in the previous paragraph. There will be negative marking for wrong answers. The negative marking scheme will be negative 1/3 for 1 mark question and negative 2/3 for 2 marks questions. Part-II will consist of Subjective type questions. The answers to Part-II have to be given at appropriate places in the “Question-cum-Answer Booklet” itself. No supplementary sheet will be provided.
Number of Test Papers allowed:A candidate can appear in either one or two Test Paper(s), subject to the restrictions imposed by the authority and on payment of the requisite additional fee for the second Test Paper, as applicable. Candidates desirous of appearing in two Test Papers must ensure, from the Test Schedule in latest brochure, that these Test Papers are not scheduled in the same session.
