- (i) Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ): These carrying 1 or 2 marks each in all papers and sections. These questions are objective in nature, and each will have a choice of four answers, out of which the candidate has to mark the correct answer(s)
- (ii) Numerical Answer/Fill in the blank Questions
Design of Questions: The Fill in the Blank Questions usually consist of 35% - 40% of the total weightage. The questions in a paper may be designed to test the following abilities:
- Recall: These are based on facts, principles, formulas or laws of the discipline of the paper. The candidate is expected to be able to obtain the answer either from his/her memory of the subject or at most from a one-line computation.
- Comprehension: These questions will test the candidate’s understanding of the basics of his/her field, by requiring him/her to draw simple conclusions from fundamental ideas.
- Application: In these questions, the candidate is expected to apply his/her knowledge either through computation or by logical reasoning.
- Analysis and Synthesis: In these questions, the candidate is presented with data, diagrams, images etc. that require analysis before a question can be answered. A Synthesis question might require the candidate to compare two or more pieces of information. Questions in this category could, for example, involve candidates in recognizing unstated assumptions, or separating useful information from irrelevant information.
