There are two sections: 1) General Awareness 2) Subject Specialization. The test is of objective type except for the descriptive one.

There are 50 qts in General Awareness section out of 40 needs to be attempted. Each qt carries 1 mark. 2 are of descriptive type. Each of 5 marks. So total comes to (40×1)+(5×2)=50.

Same is the case with other section i.e. Subject Specialization. In this section there are 75 qts out of which only 60 needs to be attempted. Each qt carries 1.5 mark. 2 again are of descriptive type. Each of 5 mark. So total comes to (60×1.5)+(5×2)=100.

I am writing some of the qts I remember.
