Part B contains subject-related conventional Multiple Choice questions (MCQs), generally covering the topics given in the syllabus.
Part C comprises higher order questions to test the candidate's knowledge of scientific concepts and/ or application of the scientific concepts. The questions are of analytical nature where a candidate is expected to apply scientific knowledge to arrive at the solution to the given scientific problem.
