Part III (a) English Proficiency 10
(b) Logical Reasoning 20
Part IV Mathematics/ Biology (For B. Pharm) 40
Total 130

• There is no time limit for individual parts of the test. The candidate can go back and change any of his/ her answers among the 130 questions.
• If a candidate answers all the 130 questions (without skipping any question), the candidate will have an option of attempting 12 (twelve) extra questions, if there is still time left. These extra questions will be from Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics/ Biology and Logical reasoning only; three questions from each of them. Further, once the candidate has opted for extra questions, he/ she cannot go back for correction of any of the earlier answered 130 questions.
• The questions are so designed that a good student will be able to answer 130 questions in 180 minutes. The extra questions (a maximum of 12) will give a chance to highly meritorious candidates to score higher. However, candidates should keep in mind the fact that there is negative marking for wrong answers and any attempt to answer the questions by pure guessing of the answers is not likely to have any advantage, but may result in a reduction in the total score.
• The questions will be selected at random from a large question bank. Different candidates will get different question sets. An expert committee will ensure that the question sets are of comparable difficulty level, content, question type etc. In this matter, the decision of the expert committee will be final and binding on the candidate.
• All the questions and instructions of the test will be in English only. Candidates should bring a pen for the purpose of rough work, signing etc. Blank sheets for rough work will be provided, if required.
