Each question paper consists of 60 questions each and students are required to take three out of these four papers, there is a choice between Biology and Mathematics for Medical and Engineering courses respectively.

The answer key issued by the organizing committee is according to the different versions of the question papers. Each question has 16 different answers indicated by the question paper code on the top of the table.

Uses of Question Paper

The major use of the question paper is that the candidates can cross-check their answers once the answer key is available to them and also report to the authorities in case there is an objection to the answers. The question paper is important and must be retained by the candidate.

The question paper indicates the paper set that the candidate attempted and thus the candidate requires the set code while checking the answer key. Also, the question paper must also be retained by the candidate if they are reporting any objection to the answer key as the answers shall be then tallied only according to that particular set. The candidate can report the objection only if he/she has the correct question code and question number which is wrong in the answer key.
