Written test will be held simultaneously for all streams and specializations.
For candidates of IT/CS and ECE streams:
The question paper will be divided into two sections. The first section will be common to both the streams and will have 40 questions. The second section will have three sub‐sections. The first sub‐section will be for candidates from IT/CS stream, the second sub‐section will be for candidates from ECE stream and the third sub‐section will be for candidates from Bio stream. All sub‐sections will have 60 questions. A candidate should attempt questions from only one sub‐section according to the stream opted for in the application form.
Each question will have four choices with only one correct answer.
Syllabus for first section common to candidates of both (IT/CS & ECE) streams:
Computer programming in C/C++ on Windows/ Linux, computer organization, data and file Structures, discrete mathematics, probability and statistics, linear algebra, solution of differential equations, fourier and laplace transforms. Syllabus for second section for IT / CS stream:
Operating systems, algorithm analysis and design, automata theory, compiler design, database management system, Computer Network.
Syllabus for second section for ECE stream:
Electronic Devices and Circuits, Signals and Systems, Network theory, Electromagnetic Theory and antenna, Electronic Measurements and instrumentation, Control Systems, Communication Systems, Microwave Engineering, Computer Networks.
Syllabus for second section of Bio stream:
Molecular Biology, Biochemistry and Biophysics: Basic Concept in Computer Programming.
The candidates who have opted for the bio stream will be attempt questions for the bio stream only. There will be 100 questions. Each question will have four choices with only one correct answer. The syllabus will be as follows:
(a) Technical Section: Fundamentals of computer and programming.
(b) Analytical section: Probability and statistics, linear algebra, concepts of introductory differential calculus
(c) Biology section: Molecular Biology, Biochemistry and Biophysics: chemical, metabolic and structural concept of bio‐molecules, DNA and protein sequencing methods.
