INFORMATION
1. Students will be provided
with a Schedule of Topics
to be covered in various
test. These schedule of
topics have been designed
so that no. of times a
particular topic appears in
various tests is based on
its importance in exam.
(See schedule of topics
below)
2. The test has been
designed in such a way
that it covers all concepts
involved in any chapter in
some test or the other.
3. Immediately after each test
students will be asked to
fill up self evaluation
performa so that they do
not missout on the
difficulties they faced in
particular tests and what
they should have done to
overcome it.
4. There would be technical
discussion on the
conventional topics so that
students can get their
doubts cleared and get a
feedback on which
question should be
attempted before other.
5. The copies will be checked
by experts and comments
regarding improvements in
answer writing will be
given.
