(ii) Chemistry
(iii) Mathematics
(iv) Biology
(v) Agriculture
(vi) Home Science
The candidates desiring admission in Agriculture/ Horticulture/ Forestry/ Fisheries/ Dairy Technology/ Food Technology/ Biotechnology would have to attempt any three subjects except Home science while female candidates desiring admission in Home Science can attempt any three subjects out of all above six.

3. The question paper will consist of multiple choice type questions (pick up the most suitable answer).
4. The question paper will be in the form of a test booklet containing different subjects: Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Agriculture, Biology and Home Science each is having 40 questions. There would be four suggested answers [(1), (2), (3), (4)] to each question.

5. The candidates are required to choose the correct answer and blacken the corresponding circle with the pen in the answer sheet (Details for filling answer sheet is given on side Ist of sample answer sheet).
