NVS PGT Biology SYLLABUS AND EXAM PATTERN 2020

NVS PGT Biology SYLLABUS AND EXAM PATTERN

NVS PGT Biology SYLLABUS

hello and welcome

 today we are going to discuss the detailed syllabus and exam pattern of NVS PGT biology.

 show the first things should be in first let me start with exam pattern.

NVS PGT Biology EXAM PATTERN

 there are two stages of PGT biology exam pattern.

 first stage written examination.

 second stage interview.

I would like to cover few more important points.

  1.  the final merit list will be made on the basis of Mark’s score in the written examination as well as an interview.
  2. The ratio of marks will be 85:15 Where 85% marks will be count from written examination and 15% marks will be count from an interview test the written examination will be a total of 150 marks.
  3.  and the interview will be 60 marks.
  4.  there is no negative marking in the written examination.
  5.  later I will tell you the detailed written examination syllabus in which you will be able to understand the maximum marks questions will be asked from your relevant discipline relevant subject by which you are appearing for a PGT exam
  6.  100 questions will be asked from your biology topic so prepare well for your concern subject

KVS PGT Interview 

Interview for PGT post is very important and Critical things because it is scoring as well as mandatory also.

 you have to good score in interview.

 if you have good marks in your interview then there are more chances to get selected for the PGT post because the merit list is based on written exam + interview.

 various things matter in the interview.

 I would like to recommend a YouTube channel and a YouTube video in which the detail interview experience has been elaborated in a very better way.
