Dear Rozy
Regarding ICMR JRF
The paper will consist of two Sections. The Aptitude Section (Section A) will have 50
questions on (i) scientific phenomenon in everyday life; (ii) general knowledge in sciences; and
(iii) common statistics. All these 50 questions would be compulsory with each question carrying 1
mark. The subject specific section (Sections B & C) would pertain to (B) Life sciences and (C)
Social sciences. Each question carries one mark.
The candidate may attempt questions in either of the two areas. Each area of section B & C would
have 100 questions and the candidate may attempt any 75 questions in the predesigned area of
Section B or C. Candidates are required to indicate the option for Section B or C in the
application form too. Negative marking @ 0.25 will be made for each of the wrong answer. If the
candidate attends more than 75 questions in Section B or C, then only the first 75 questions will
be evaluated. The questions in both the Sections would appear in English only.
Q. Is there any aggregate marks cut-off for selection?
A. The final result will be based on aggregate of 55% marks obtained in both the Sections for
General category and OBC and 50% for SC/ST and PH/VH.
Hope it is clear
