In addition to this question paper, you are given answer sheet for part A and an answer paper for part B. On the answer sheet for part A, fill up all the entries carefully in the space provided, ONLY In BLOCK CAPITALS. Incomplete / incorrect / carelessly filled information may disqualify your candidature. On part A answer sheet, use only BLUE of BLACK BALL PEN for making entries and marking answer. Part A has two parts. In part A1 (Q.No. 1 to 40) each question has Four alternatives, out of which only one is correct. Choose the correct alternative and mark a cross (X) in the corresponding box on the answer sheet. For example,
Q. 22 a b c d

3. 4.

Part A2 (Q.Nos. 41 to 50) has four alternatives in each question, but any number of these (4, 3, 2, or 1) may be correct. You have to mark ALL correct alternatives and mark a cross (X) for each, like

5.

For Part A1, each correct answer gets 3 marks; wrong answer gets a penalty of 1 mark. For Part A2 full marks are 6 for each question, you get them when ALL correct answer only are marked. Any rough work should be done only on the sheets provided with part B answer paper. Use of nonprogrammable calculator is allowed. No candidate should leave the examination hall before the completion of the examination. After submitting your answer papers, read the instructions regarding evaluation given on next page. Attempt the examination honestly. Any dishonestly will disqualify you. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ANY MARKS OTHER THAN (X) IN THE SPACE PROIDED ON THE ANSWER SHEET OF PART A. Answer sheets are evaluated with the help of a machine. Hence, CHANGE OF ENTRY IS NOT ALLOWED. Scratching or overwriting may result in wrong score. DO NOT WRITE ANYTHING ON THE BACK SIDE OF PART A ANSWER SHEET.

INSTRUCTIONS TO CANDIDATES: 1. The answers / solutions to this question paper will be available on our websitewww.iapt.org.in by 3 rd Decembet 2013. EVALUATION PROCEDURE (NSEP) : 2. Part 'A' Answers of ALL the candidates are examined. 3. Part B is evaluated of only those students who get marks above a certain' "cut oft" marks in Part A. (e.g. NSEP Total marks for Part A are 180. Students getting (say) 100 or more than 100 marks In Part A are identified and their Part B is evaluated. Thus "cut off" marks are 100 in this example.) PART ‘B’ IS NOT EVALUATED OF ALL THE CANDIDATES.

CERTIFICATES & AWARDS Following certificates are awarded by the I.A.P.T. to students successful in NSEP. i) Certificate for “Centre Top 10%” students on the basis of marks in part A only. ii) Merit certificates to statewise Top 1% students on the basis of (A+B) marks. iii) Merit certificate and a prize in the form of a book to Nationwise Top 1% students based on (A+B) marks. 5. Result sheets and the “centre top 10%” certificates of NSEP are dispatched to the Professor in charge of the centre. Thus you will get your marks from the Professor in charge of your centre by January 2014 end. TOP 300 (or so) students are called for the next examination -Indian National Physics Olympiads (INPhO). Individual letters are sent to these students ONLY. Gold medals will be awarded to TOP 35 students in this entire process. No queries will be entertained in this regard.
