### General Ability Test

The standard of paper in General Ability Test will be such as may be expected of a Engineering/Science Graduate.

The
standard of papers in other subjects will approximately be that of an
Engineering Degree Examination of an Indian University. There will be
no practical examination in any of the subjects.

Part

designed to test the candidate’s understanding of English and
workmanlike use of words.

Part B: General
Studies: The paper in General Studies will include knowledge of current
events and of such matters as of everyday observation and experience in
their scientific aspects as may be expected of an educated person. The
paper will also include questions on History of India and Geography of
a nature which candidates should be able to answer without special
study.
