Dean of examinations Vinay Gupta said that the exams would take place in three sessions per day. The centres would have network Jammers and CCTV surveillance. The exam would have 100 multiple choice questions (MCQs), which are designed to evaluate the aptitude of students in areas relevant to each subject.

The time limit for the exam would be two hours, and students would get a score of plus four marks for each correct answer, negative marking of minus one mark for wrong answers and zero marks for questions left unanswered.

The exams are most likely to be scheduled between 20 June and 1 July and the final schedule would be uploaded on the portal. Gupta adds that the students would be given the first preference while selecting examinations centres.

The concerned board would declare results in a week, and answers to the question papers will be uploaded in 24 hours and students would have 48 hours to solve grievances or challenge in the answers.
