CSIR LIFE SCIENCES/BIOTECHNOLOGY
JRF- NET life Sciences Online Test Series along with Mock Tests
Mere theoretical knowledge will not enable a student to crack the exam until and unless it is supplemented with repeated practice of tests. These tests assess students’ abilities and complete the process of learning. They also help students identify their weak areas along with the gaps in their preparation, and start rectifying them. It is very important to be well acquainted with the level and pattern of questions in advance before appearing for the final exam. Our topic wise online test series along with the mock tests will help you analyze your gaps and weaknesses. These have been especially designed so as to provide you with in-depth knowledge and the important areas to focus on.
Types of Test
a. Unit-wise tests and
b. Mock tests
(a) Unit-wise tests
There will be 15 unit wise test papers. Of these thirteen test papers will cover all 13 units of Life Sciences. Each question paper shall contain 60 multiple choice questions which are further divided into two parts: Part B and Part C. The questions in part B shall be of similar nature as that of Part B of CSIR-JRF-NET exam (two marks each) and the questions in part C shall be of similar nature as that of Part C of CSIR- JRF-NET exam (four marks each). There will be two unit test papers of General aptitude containing 60 questions. Each question shall carry 2 marks and the questions will of similar nature as that of the Part A of CSIR- JRF-NET exam. There will be negative marking for each incorrect answer @ 0.5 per wrong answer for Part A, Part B and Part C.
