NIMCET 2019-20 Syllabus | Question Pattern NIT MCA Entrance 2019-20
The duration of NIMCET 2019-20 examination will be for a period of TWO hours and question paper will consist of 120 multiple choice questions with four choices for each question.
The examination is conducted in Mathematics, Analytical Ability & Logical Reasoning, Computer Awareness and General English.
Each correctly answered question will carry FOUR marks and each wrongly answered question will lead to NEGATIVE ONE mark.
The candidates are advised not to attempt such item in the answer sheet if they are not sure of the correct response. No deduction from the total score will, however, be made if no response is indicated for an item in the answer sheet. More than one answer indicated against a question will be deemed as incorrect response and will be negatively marked. The candidates have to mark the responses in the OMR sheet using HB pencil only. All rough work is to be done in the Test Booklet only. The candidate should NOT do any rough work or put stray mark on the OMR Sheet.
