    NIPER JEE 2020 Exam Pattern in Detail

    NIPER JEE exam pattern is as follows:

    • NIPER JEE Exam contains 200 questions.
    • The exam is conducted in offline mode.
    • The time frame given to solve these questions is 2 hours.
    • Each correct answer carries 1 mark and 0.25 marks will be deducted for every incorrectly answered question.
    • Chemistry, Biotechnology, Pharmacology, Pharmaceutical analysis are the core topics from which questions are asked.
    • There will be a common paper for all Masters Programs including M.B.A (Pharm). There is no approved syllabus set by NIPER for the entrance examination.
    • Subjects like Pharmacognosy or forensic pharmacy (Pharmaceutical Judispudence) are easier as compared to GPAT.
    • The syllabus is parallel to that of GATE entrance examination but the alteration is that, more significance is given for Chemistry linked subjects.
    • The applicants have to answer all the questions by blackening appropriate bubbles using HB pencil in the Objective Response Sheet (ORS).

    NIPER JEE 2020 Marking Scheme

    The marking scheme for NIPER JEE is very simple. The exam has 200 questions. Each carries 1 mark. Therefore, the maximum marks are 200. There is a negative mark of 25% of 1 that is 0.25 or 1/4 for every incorrect answer marked in ORS sheet. And each correct answer will give you 1 mark.
