PAPER : DCE (Delhi College of Engineering) DCE Entrance Examination Sample Paper (Physics)

The question paper contains 180 questions. Four choices are given for a question out of which one choice may be correct. Each question carries 4 marks. The total marks of the Entrance Test are 720 (240 for each subject, i.e., Physics, Chemistry, Maths). You will get 4 marks for each correct response. For each incorrect response, one mark will be deducted from the total score. As such for each incorrect response, you will lose 5 marks (4 for wrong response and one mark as penalty).
