Myths about NBE Exam’s new format, BUSTED!!
Sources close to NBE have quoted that they are planning to hire Tata Consultancy services as a technology partner for all its exams. However, no formal announcement has been made. A proper tender bidding process will be followed but there are high chances of TCS getting that tender but people inside Governing body has informally made up their minds for TCS. A formal notification is still awaited.
Format of the exam: Many students are worried about the exam format changing. Even though the exam conducting company has changed, the exam format in terms of difficulty level, format of questions, number of image based questions etc will not change.
Questions will still be in one liners format and factual based.
*Note that many sources are spreading false info that exam will be based on AIIMS PG pattern. This is not true, NBE is still the conducting authority not AIIMS. So there will be no change in pattern/content of the exam.
Negative marking: Since TCS software has no normalization, negative marking will be used in scoring process.
Single day exam: All NBE exams will be single day exams now. Since there will be no normalization used, multiple day exams cannot be conducted.
