TOTAL 77 400
*20 questions will be MCQs and 5 questions will have answer to be filled as numerical value (NAT).
- There is -1 negative marks for incorrect MCQ answer and no negative marks for incorrect NAT answers. Unanswerd questions will have no negative marking.

1. NATA / JEE PAPER 2 50%
2. Aggregate % in 10+2 / 10+3 exam 50%

Let’s take an example

1. NATA / JEE PAPER 2 150/200 37
2. XII Exam 90/100 45.0
Merit Score out of 100 82.5
