ICMR JRF Exam pattern, Sample papers & Books

April 28, 2011

ICMR JRF Exam pattern Sample papers BooksFew days back I had posted a blog article titled: ICMR JRF Exam 2011 Notification, Eligibility & Forms which tells you how to apply for this prestigious exam. In that blog article, I had also told you that I would help you to prepare for this exam by posting study materials for this exam - the sample papers and books along with an analysis of exam patter.

Subject matter of this blog article gives you exactly that - although let me tell you that prep materials for ICMR exam is very scarce on the net - almost non-existent. I would therefore substantiate the same by pointing you to other JRF exams like UGC NET/JRF.

First lets begin that by knowing what is the pattern of ICMR JRF exam.

ICMR JRF Exam pattern:
As you might have found out already, ICMR JRF selection process consists of a national written test to be conducted in eight centres viz. Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai,Hyderabad, Varanasi and Guwahati.The test consists of a 125 mark paper to be answered in 2 hours.

There are two streams of ICMR JRF exam: Life sciences & Social Sciences for which you appear in the exam. You have to choose only one out of these two while applying in Item: "2. TREAM CODE" in the application form. There would be 100 questions (each weighing 1 mark) in this stream paper, out of which you would need to attempt 75 questions.

In addition to above stream paper - there would be a common paper (irrespective of whether you opted for Life science or Social Science) on Aptitude, containing 50 questions (each weighing 1 mark) .

Thus in ICMR JRF exam you have to appear in two sections: Aptitude & Life science or Aptitude & Social Science

Break-up of marks section-wise is given below:ICMR Exam PatternBeware! there is negative mark: 0.25 for each wrong answer!

What is the Qualifying/Cut-off mark for ICMR JRF Exam?
So this question must be bugging you - well, it depends on the relative performance of all the candidates in the written test - you have to be among top 120 in Life sciences & among top 30 in Social Sciences as there are only as many seats.

However, ICMR has prescribed following qualifying mark ICMR Exam Qualifying marks(55% for GEN/OBC) & (50% for others). With this, you have to score minimum marks in ICMR JRF exam as given at right.

BioTecnika has a good collection of ICMR JRF exam 2010 questions, all of them contributed by examinees who had actually appeared in this exam. Go through all the 7 pages of this article, link for which you would find in the bottom.

Other than above, I would like to point you to the sample papers for similar JRF exam conducted by UGC called UGC NET/JRF. Why? because syllabus of ICMR JRF exam is the same as UGC NET/JRF exam.

You can also find some prescribed books for the UGC NET/JRF exam here, which should help you to prepare for ICMR JRF exam.

As I had told you before prep materials - sample/model papers for ICMR JRF exam is very scare - I had tried to collect them from various websites. I would look out for more such sample papers and books for ICMR JRF Exam and post them here as and when I find them. So keep visiting this blog!!
