I have a doubt regarding the pattern of the exam. In some mock exams they are asking some quesions with out choices and some questions with true or false choice. Can anybody please clarify the doubt and tell me what is the exact pattern of question paper, how many questions they ask and how much is the duration.

Thank you.

with regards,

Hi Pushyamitra Reddy!
I will say that, a simple true or false question will not be there in the exam. Rather, you may be asked to select the false statement(s) or true statement(s) given a list of options. These options can be from any topic.

Even I got, one short answer type of question. Here, the answer will be usually a single word or in fact couple of words. This is what I saw in my exam.

The best thing is, you will be told how many correct choices exist and this will be given FOR ALL QUESTIONS.

Hope I gave you the extra inputs.
