The language of the question paper is English.

The examination will consist of two parts, Part A and Part B. Candidates have to attempt questions from both the parts. Part A contains objective type questions (MCQ, MSQ and NAT) and Part B consists of design and hand drawing type questions.

Part  A  will  be  conducted  from  10:00  to  11:00  Hrs  followed  by  Part  B  from 11:00 to 13:00 Hrs.
