The majority of the questions in MSc admission exams are multiple choice, objective-type questions (MCQs). A small number of MSc admission tests do, however, also include numerical problems. For instance, the IIT JAM exam has a separate segment called Numerical Answer Type for questions with numbers (NAT).
Marking Scheme: For the majority of MSc entrance exams, there is a marking scheme that awards 1 to 3 marks for each correct response and subtracts 0.5 to 1 point for each erroneous response. Candidates are advised to carefully mark their responses as a result.
