Syllabus of Paper I : Common to all Science Subjects:General information on

Science and its interface with society to test the candidates awareness of science, aptitude of scientific and quantitative reasoning. Questions would be so designed to judge the creativity, analytical ability and research aptitude of a candidate. The questions to test the knowledge at the basic level would be setup in each of the subject areas of NET, viz., Chemical Sciences, Earth, Atmospheric, Ocean & Planetary Sciences; Life Sciences; Mathematical Sciences, Physical Sciences and each 8 marks.

8 X 5 = 40 Marks. Common Elementary Computer Science:

(Applicable to all candidates offering any subject area; A few questions dealing with basic computer awareness and uses). 10 Marks (i) Programming Instructions (ii) Simple algorithms and Computational methods.
