  • The question paper will consist of multiple-choice questions divided into 3 sections - A, B or C. Section A is compulsory while candidates must choose one section between B and C.
  • Section A of the question paper is General Aptitude, which contains 50 questions of 50 marks.
  • In the case of Section B or C, each part contains a different number of questions. The total number of questions that a candidate needs to attempt in the exam is 75 questions out of 100 questions.

Go Through the Entire Syllabus of ICMR JRF Exam

  • During your exam preparation, try to complete the whole ICMR JRF syllabus rather than studying out of syllabus topics.
  • Since there are many units or topics included in the syllabus, it is important that you should analyze and make a diligent study plan to cover each and every topic of the syllabus before time.

Allocate Proper Time:

  • You are only left with approximately 30 days to prepare for the exam, so, in this critical time, you should allocate your time to ensure that you give proper coverage to your revision time as well as solving routinely previous year’s papers will make you exam ready.
  • Allocation of time depends and varies for different individuals, however, for reference, we have shared an ideal study plan for the ICMR JRF exam, which would enable students to make most of the time at hand.

Refer to Good Author Books:

  • There аre соuntless bооks аvаilаble in the mаrket fоr ICMR JRF рreраrаtiоn, yоu need tо first analyze аnd then buy sоme gооd bооks.
  • Focusing on one particular book to cover the whole syllabus is not a good idea. In such a scenario, you must ensure that you are not relying on 1 book completely. To avoid this, it will be a good effort to actively engage yourself through some online platforms that provide study material, notes, books, formula sheets etc for your practice.

Practice Previous Year Paper/Quizzes/Test Series Routinely on BYJU'S Exam Prep App:

  • It is high time to focus on practising the difficult concepts/topics by practising them on the Gradeup app.
  • For this purpose, you must ensure to solve as many previous year papers/quizzes/test Series daily and through this, you can actually improve your speed and accuracy, and analyze your performance in each test.

Revise and Test Your Abilities:

  • In order to maximize your chances to get a good rank, you need to minimize the time that you spend on reading, understanding, and solving each question before the last 5 days. Just revise all your short notes during this time and do not start with a new topic.
  • Many ICMR JRF questions can be answered by just reading and understanding the question. So the final goal is to improve your speed for each question so that there will not be a shortage of time during the exam.
