Candidates shall mark the correct answer in the Optical Mark Reader (OMR) response sheet by shading in Dark the appropriate circle with HB/2Bpencil only. They should not use under any circumstance Ball pen for this purpose.
Candidates shall be required to indicate their Hall ticket number on the Optical mark reader (OMR) response sheet. It shall be done as demonstrated by shading the appropriate circle.
Candidates are requested to answer all questions. All questions carry equal marks. There is no negative marking for incorrect answers.
The qualifying marks in POLYCET:
|Admission into||Qualifying marks|
