The focus of this post is on to give you the Exam pattern, the Syllabus and Books for preparation of the NIMCET exam.NIMCET-2011 Exam pattern:
NIMCET exam consists of 120 multiple-choice objective type questions in four subjects. Subject-wise question/mark distribution is given below:1.
Mathematics: 45 questions (180 marks)2.
Analytical Ability & Logical Reasoning: 40 questions (160 marks)3.
Computer Awareness: 10 questions (40 marks)4.
General English: 25 questions (100 marks)
Each NIMCET question has four options, out of which only one is correct. Each correctly answered question will carry Four marks and each wrongly answered question will lead to Negative One mark.
You have to mark your responses with HB pencil in the OMR (Optical Mark Recognition) sheets in the examination and hence you have to bring your own, eraser and black ball point pen. How does an OMR sheet look like? It looks like one below, where you have to blacken the circle representing the correct option with pencil:NIMCET Exam syllabus:
