Nature of the Examination

The question paper will consist only of objective type questions in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. The answer for each question is to be recorded on a specially designed machine-gradable Optical Response Sheet (ORS) and evaluated through Optical Mark Reader (OMR). A sample copy of the sheet is given in APPENDIX-1. The candidate is expected to choose the correct answer and record his/her response by darkening the appropriate bubble  using hard black (HB) pencils alone. Marking more than one answer for any given question will render the response invalid. Correct answers will be awarded three marks each. Every incorrect answer will be awarded one negative mark. The detailed syllabi, based on which ISAT-2012 will be conducted, for the three subjects; namely, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics are available at .
