GSA 2012 Exam PatternThe admission procedure for all subjects excluding Science Education consists of written test (usually having objective type questions) followed by interviews. The written tests are held at the centres specified by the institute. The Biology written test is held on a specific Sunday in December each year at centres all over India. The test consists of multiple choice questions covering basics in physics, chemistry, maths and biology. For Computer and Systems Sciences there are two streams-one in the area of Computer Science and the other in the area of Systems Science. The question paper is composed of three parts-A,B and C. Part A is common for all and tests the general mathematical aptitude of the candidate, and the students need to attempt only one of the parts B or C .The syllabi for test in mathematics covers topics dealt with during a normal BSc course in Mathematics.
