REPRESENTATIVE QUESTIONS OF TEST PAPER

A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO THE WRITTEN TEST.
The written test is an aptitude examination designed to test your general intelligence and basic understanding of Mathematics, Applied Sciences / Engineering and Analytical/logical thinking. This written test is like GRE Engineering. To help you in preparing for the written test, a brief outline of this test is presented below. Some of the questions may require numerical calculations, so you must bring your own calculator. IT MAY BE NOTED THAT WRITING TABLES MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE DURING THE WRITTEN TEST. THEREFORE, ALL CANDIDATES ARE ADVISED TO BRING THEIR OWN WRITING CLIP BOARDS FOR THEIR CONVENIENCE DURING THE WRITTEN TEST. The instructions sheet that will accompany the actual written test is attached. Read these instructions carefully now to save time during the examination. In order to give you an idea of the nature of the written test, some representative questions are also enclosed. WRITTEN TEST OUTLINE. The question paper is divided into two parts i.e. Part (A) and (B). There will be 50 questions in Part (A) and 50 Questions in Part (B). Part (A) is the general part to be attempted by all the candidates whereas Part (B) is the subject part having subject papers. Only the subject paper relevant to the candidate’s academic background may be attempted by the candidate. The candidate should mention the subject paper he/she is attempting by filling the appropriate section of the answer sheet. The maximum time allowed is 3 hours. 1) General Part: a) It consists of three field namely Mathematics, Physics and English. b) General Part must be attempted by all the candidates c) General Part will have 50 questions in all. 20 from Mathematics & Physics reespectively and 10 from English i) Mathematics (Level F.Sc and B.Sc) Basic Calculus Vector Algebra Differential Equations Matrices Complex Variables Statistics Boolean Algebra
