Tier I Exam Details And Pattern

The pattern for the Tier I exam is quite easy to understand. It is a 60 minutes exam (20 minutes extra for disabled people) comprising 100 questions. Each question carries 2 marks thus making a total exam of 200 maximum marks.

For every correct answer, the candidate will be allotted 2 marks and for every negative answer 0.5 marks will be deducted. It consists of four sections each having 25 questions i.e. 50 marks per section. There is no sectional time in Tier 1 and candidates can shift through the sections as per their wish.

  • Since the exam is conducted in numerous shifts and on different days, thus, level of difficulty of the paper varies. To solve this problem, the authorities opt for a normalization process.
  • Candidates falling under the category of disabled persons will be given 20 extra minutes for the exam.
