Exam pattern of MCA for JAM IIT Roorkee
Objective Type questions will be applicable for Biotechnology and Computer Applications papers. These test papers have to be answered in an Objective Response Sheet (ORS) by darkening appropriate bubbles using black HB pencil. 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-subjective 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-cum-answer booklet” itself. No supplementary sheet will be provided. In each of these six test papers, objective and subjective questions will carry weightages of 30% and 70%, respectively.
The objective type questions in all the 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 in all the test papers. For wrong answer to an objective type question, candidates will get negative 1/3 (negative one third) of the maximum marks assigned to that question.
Good Luck !!
