    1. There is no prescribed syllabus for the written exam. The written exam aims to test the understanding and analytical ability of the student than his/her factual knowledge. However, students are tested for the syllabus up to class X/XII/1styr B.Sc./B.S./B.Stat./B.Math./Int. M.Sc./M.S. as applicable.
