The national level entrance exam contains a total of 180 questions, each question being allotted 4 marks each. For each wrong answer, one mark is deducted. The physics and chemistry sections contain 45 questions each whereas the biology section contains 90 questions. Therefore, Physics and Chemistry sections contain 180 marks each, and the biology section contains 360 marks. The question paper comprises multiple-choice questions (MCQs) and each question contains 4 different options. As the exam is conducted through pen-paper format, the correct option has to be marked in the OMR sheet with a ball-pen.
