A. General :
1. This Question Paper contains 75 questions. Please check before
starting to attempt. The question paper consists of 6 parts Physics
(1 to 10), Chemistry(11 to 18), Mathematics(19 to 43), Biology
(44 to 50), General Awareness (51 to 65) & Mental Ability
(66 to 75)
2. Space is provided within question paper for rough work hence no
additional sheets will be provided.
3. Blank paper, clipboard, log tables, slide rules, calculators, cellular
phones, pagers and electronic gadgets in any form are not allowed
inside the examinaiton hall.
4. The answer sheet, a machine-gradable Objective Response
Sheet (ORS), is provided separately.
5. Do not Tamper / mutilate the ORS or this booklet.
6. Do not break the seals of the question-paper booklet before
instructed to do so by the invigilators.
7. SUBMIT the ORS to the invigilator after completing the test &
take away the test paper with you.
8. Any student found/reported using unfair means to improve
his/her performance in the test, shall be disqualified from STaRT-
2013.
B. How to fill Objective Response Sheet (ORS) for filling details
marking answers:
9. Use only HB Pencil/Blue or Black ball point pen for filling the ORS.
Do not use Gel/Ink/Felt pen as it might smudge the ORS.
10. Write your STaRT-2013 Student Registration No. in the boxes given
at the top left corner of your ORS with blue/black ball point pen.
Also, darken the corresponding bubbles with HB Pencil/Blue or
Black ball point pen only.
11. If any student does not fill his/her STaRT-2013 Student Registration
No. correctly and properly, then his/her ORS will not be checked/
evaluated.
12. Since it is not possible to erase and correct pen filled bubble, you
are advised to be extremely careful while darken the bubble
corresponding to your answer.
13. Neither try to erase / rub / scratch the option nor make the Cross
(X) mark on the option once filled. Do not scribble, smudge, cut,
tear, or wrinkle the ORS. Do not put any stray marks or whitener
anywhere on the ORS.
14. If there is any discrepancy between the written data and the
bubbled data in your ORS, the bubbled data will be taken as final.
C. Question paper format and Marking scheme :
15. For each right answer you will be awarded 4 marks if you
darken the bubble corresponding to the correct answer and zero
marks if no bubble is darkened. In case of bubbling of incorrect
answer, minus one (1) mark will be awarded.
