JAM 2013 question paper pattern
The questions for Biological Sciences (BL), Biotechnology (BT) and Computer Applications (CA) test papers will be fully objective type. There will be negative marking for wrong answers to the objective type questions in BL, BT and CA test papers. Candidates will get negative 1/3 for a wrong answer. These test papers have to be answered in an Objective Response Sheet (ORS) by darkening appropriate bubbles using a black ink ball point pen. Since the ORS will be evaluated by electronic means, it is imperative that the instructions given on the ORS are carefully read and followed by the candidates.
All other test papers will be objective-cum-descriptive type. There will be a “question-cum-answer booklet” for each of these six test papers. Answers to various questions are to be given at appropriate places in the “question-cumanswer booklet” itself. No supplementary sheet will be provided. Each of these six test papers will have multiple choice type questions(MCQ), fill-in-blank type questions, and descriptive type questions, carrying weightages of 20%, 30% and 50%, respectively. The objective type questions in these test papers will have four choices as possible answers, of which, only one will be correct. There will be negative marking for wrong answers to the objective type questions. Each objective type question carries 02 marks for a correct answer and negative 0.50 marks for a wrong answer. There will be no negative marking for fill-in-the-blank type questions.
