Duration of Exam : 2 hours 
The question paper will have three parts.
Part-5 and Part-II are compulsory and under Part-III the candidates have to choose any one section out of 14 based on his/her
sepecialisation.
The syllabi for the entrance test are furnished starting from Page No. 10. The questions will be set at undergraduate level.

Questions and Evaluation Scheme 
*All the correct answers upto 40 will be awarded marks and all the wrong answers shall be taken into consideration for
awarding negative marks.
Multiple shading will be considered as wrong answer and 1/4 mark will be reduced.

Note: Marks will not be deducted for the questions left unanswered.

6.2 NORMALISATION OF MARKS for M.E./ M.Tech. / M.Arch. / M.Plan.
The entrance test question paper for M.E./ M.Tech. / M.Arch. / M.Plan. will have two common parts namely, Part – I Engineering Mathematics and Part – II Basic Engg. & Sciences and Part – III meant for different disciplines. On evaluation, the mean (m) mark and the standard deviation (s) of raw marks (r) may vary from discipline to discipline under Part – III. Marks will be normalised using the formula 
Normalised marks = 40 + (10/s) (r – m)
This gives the relative ranking of the candidates in any discipline.

6.3 ANSWER SHEET HANDLING
The candidate has to choose the correct answer and shade the corresponding small open box provided for that question in the answer sheet with either a HB pencil or a ball point pen (blue or black). If more than one open box is shaded for any question, then it will be treated as wrong answer. A ball point pen should be used only wherever writing is involved.

The shaded information is scanned and the details are transferred to computer for evaluation. Even a small stray of Pen/Pencil mark on the sheet will be captured by the scanner which may result in wrong evaluation. When changes are to be made in the answer sheet, the initial pencil shading must be erased completely before shading the new open box. The open box should be fully shaded so that the number printed inside completely disappears. Improper shading and light shading are likely to be missed by the scanner, which may also result in wrong evaluation.
