CMC Vellore Admission 2014 Information on Written Test [ANNEXURE-III]


What kind of examination will it be?

A written test consisting of multiple choice questions is conducted in English (see examples at the end). There will be many questions printed in the test booklet. Each question will have five possible answers printed after it. Your task will be to select the one best answer to each question. There will be ONLY ONE CORRECT ANSWER to each question. For the degree courses (MBBS, BSc(N) & AHS Degree Courses) there are 60 questions each in Physics, Chemistry and Biology (120 minutes total) and 120 questions in General Ability including Speed and Accuracy and a few questions on issues of current topical interest (70 minutes). The General Ability paper will be in two sections. Section I will have 60 questions to be answered in 50 minutes and Section II will have 60 questions to be answered in 20 minutes. The whole exam will be 3 hours 15 minutes long.

For the Diploma courses, the examination consists of 25 questions each in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and 15 questions in General ability. The duration of the exam will be 90 minutes.

For other subjects where a background in science is not required, the non-science( general ) paper will have 90 questions including English, General Ability, speed and accuracy and a few questions on issues of current topical interest. The duration of the exam will be 90 minutes.

How should I write my answer?

In the examination hall, at each session, you will be given a test booklet and an answer sheet. In the booklet, the choice of answers to each question will be listed alphabetically (after each question five suggested answers will be given) and these choices will be indicated as A,B,C,D,E. In the answer sheet, the serial numbers of each question will be printed and against each number, there will be boxes provided for you to shade the correct answer. Remember that you should shade only one answer for each question. If you shade more than one answer for any question, you will not be given any credit for it even if one of your answers is correct. You may use a black ball point pen or HB pencil. Using a pencil is to your advantage. If you want to change your answer, be sure to erase your wrong answer completely with an eraser and shade the correct box.

Should I write my name on the answer sheet?

You must write your hall ticket number, name and sign in the area provided.
You will be DISQUALIFIED if you write your name or anything else, which reveals your identity in any other part of the answer sheet.

How fast should I work?

Although most of the tests stress accuracy more than speed, it is important for you to use your time as economically as possible. Work steadily and as fast as you can, but with care.

Do not worry if you cannot answer all the questions. No one is expected to know the answers to all the questions. Do not waste time on questions that are too difficult for you but go on to the other questions and come back to the difficult ones later.

When the time allotted for a test is over, your Supervisor will instruct all the candidates to go on to the next test. Even if you have not yet finished that section of the test, go to the next test IMMEDIATELY or you may lose marks.

Should I Guess? Is there negative marking?

Since the possible answers for each question are provided, you may wonder whether or not to guess the answer for questions you are not certain about. There is no negative marking and hence at times it may be worthwhile making an intelligent guess. That choice is yours and you have to decide how close to the options you are.

In the degree (MBBS, etc) combined entrance examination only, credit is given for questions not attempted (those left blank). The credit given is equal to 1/5 (0.2) of the mark for that question. So your score will probably be more if you leave out the questions about which you know nothing. Remember, however, that a correct answer will be given one full mark. So, if you have some knowledge of the question and are able to eliminate one or more of the possible answers, your chances of guessing the correct answer increases. It may be to your advantage to attempt such questions.

How should I prepare for these tests?

These tests have been designed to measure your knowledge, understanding and ability and not just your

It will help to review your science course carefully, making sure that you UNDERSTAND each subject
thoroughly. Familiarise yourself with the model questions given below.

What is the syllabus?

The syllabus for the common entrance tests (unless otherwise specified) will be a mixture of ‘plus two’ level boards recognised by the TN Dr MGR Med University. Papers will be in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and General Ability including Speed and Accuracy and a few questions on current topical interest. Wherever there is a special paper, the syllabus would be based on the qualifying examination required for the subject. Please see the course description in the prospectus.

What will I need at the examination?

You should have your Hall Ticket bearing your roll number with you. Take with you two HB pencils and an eraser since you will need a pencil to shade the correct answer on the answer sheet and if you make a mistake, you will need an eraser to erase the mistake. This is all that you will need for the examination.

You will NOT be permitted to take rough paper, scales, calculators, slide rule, logarithm tables, drawing instruments, or CELLULAR PHONES into the examination hall, as they are NOT needed. You need not memorise these directions since the most important ones will be repeated in the examination hall.

Some sample questions from each of the various tests are given below. These cover most of the types of questions that will be asked. There may, however, be some other varieties also. You will be given instructions and examples for each type of question when you start a new section on the question booklet. So take time to read the instructions carefully and go over the examples.

You will have approximately half-a-minute to answer each question. Check your answers with the correct answers given at the end of these pages. You may also use the specimen answer paper in the prospectus to practice.

How are selections made?

Soon after the examination, dummy numbers are assigned to each answer paper and all further corrections and computations are done anonymously. After correction, the marks are converted to stanine grades and a final grade is worked out. Selection to the interviews is done purely on the basis of inter-se merit. The interviews and other tests focus on evaluating the person and his/her aptitude for the course.
