The Engineering Entrance Examination will be objective type with Multiple Choice Questions and based on single response. For each question, five suggested answers would be given, of which only one will be the MOST APPROPRIATE RESPONSE.
For Engineering Entrance Examination, each Paper will have 120 questions to be answered in 150 minutes.
Scoring, negative marks - For each correct response in the Engineering Entrance Examination, the candidates will be awarded FOUR marks, and for each incorrect response, ONE mark will be deducted from the total score. For each paper, in the event of failure to answer a question, (that is, no response is indicated against a question in the answer-sheet) no deduction from the total score will be made. More than one answer indicated against a question will be deemed as incorrect response, and will be awarded negative marks. Therefore the candidates are advised not to attempt an answer, if they are not sure of the correct response, because mere guessing may lead to choice of wrong answers, with the consequent penalty of negative marks. However, the candidates who fail to answer at least one question in each paper will be disqualified and cannot find a place in the Engineering Rank list. Similarly, a candidate who fails to answer at least one question in Paper-I of the Engineering Entrance Examination will be disqualified and cannot find a place in the B.Pharm Rank list.
