Christian Medical College is a college cum hospital reputed across the country, situated in Tamil Nadu that offers various studies related to Medicine like MBBS, BSc (NURSING), BPT, BOT and many others.   

Christain Medical College admission tests are all in English and of the ''objective'' or multiple choice answer type. 

Test booklet with many questions printed on it will be the actual questionnaire to test the efficacy of the students. Each question will have five possible answers printed beneath it. Candidates need to select the one best answer for each question. Certainly, there will be only one correct answer to each question.

For the degree courses (MBBS, BSc(Nursing) & Allied Health Sciences (AHS) Degree Courses) there are 60 questions each in Physics, Chemistry and Biology (120 minutes total) and 120 questions in General Ability including Speed and Accuracy and a few questions on issues of current topical interest (70 minutes).

The General Ability paper will be of two sections. Section I will have 60 questions to be answered in 50 minutes and Section II will have 60 questions to be answered in 20 minutes. The whole exam will be 3 hours 10 minutes long. 

For the Diploma courses, the examination consists of 25 questions each in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and  15 questions in General ability. The duration of the exam will be 90 minutes. For other subjects where a background in science is not required, the non-science paper will have 90  questions including English, General Ability, speed and accuracy and a few questions on issues of current topical interest. Time duration for the exam will be 90 minutes.
Writing answers: 

In the examination hall, at each session, you will be given a test booklet and an answer sheet. In the booklet, the choice of answers to each question will be listed alphabetically (after each question five suggested answers will be given) and these choices will be indicated as A,B,C,D,E. In the answer sheet, the serial numbers of each question will be printed and against each number, there will be boxes provided for you to shade the correct answer.

Remember that you should shade only one answer for each question. If  you shade more than one answer for any question, you will not be given any credit for it even if one of your answers is correct. If you want to change your answer, be sure to erase your wrong answer completely with an eraser and shade the correct box.

It is important to write your hall ticket number, name and sign in the area provided. Else, will be DISQUALIFIED if you write your name or anything else, which reveals your identity in any other part of the answer sheet.
Accuracy with Speed: 

Although most of the tests stress accuracy more than speed, it is important for you to use your time as economically as possible.

Work steadily and as fast as you can, but with care. Do not get to apprehensive if you cannot answer all the questions. No one is expected to know the answers to all the questions.

Do not waste time on questions that are too difficult for you, but go on to the other questions and come back to the difficult ones later.

When the time allotted for a test is over, hall supervisors or instructors will instruct all the candidates to go on to the next test.

Even if you have not yet finished that section of the test, go to the next test IMMEDIATELY or you may lose marks.

Can I Guess? Is there negative marking?

Since the possible answer for each question is provided, you may wonder whether or not to guess the answer for questions you are not certain about. There is no negative marking and hence at times it may be worthwhile making an intelligent guess. That choice is yours and you have to decide how close to the options you are.

In the degree (MBBS, etc) combined entrance examination only, credit is given for questions not attempted (those left blank). The credit given is equal to 1/5 (0.2) of the mark for that question. So your score will  probably be more if you leave out the questions about which you know nothing.

Remember, however, that a correct answer will be given one full mark. So, if you have some knowledge of the question and are able to eliminate one or more of the possible answers, your chances of guessing the correct answer increases. It may be to your advantage to attempt such questions.
Preparation for the test: 

These tests have been designed to measure your knowledge, understanding and ability and not just your memory. It will help to review your science course carefully, making sure that you understand each subject  thoroughly. Familiarise yourself with the model questions given below.  


The syllabus for the common entrance tests (unless otherwise specified) will be a mixture of plus two level boards recognised by the TN Dr MGR Medical University.

Papers will be in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and General Ability including Speed and Accuracy and a few questions on current topical interest. Wherever there is a special paper, the syllabus would be based on the qualifying examination required for the subject. Please see the course description in the prospectus.
Things needed for the examination: 

You should have your Hall Ticket bearing your roll number with you. Take two HB pencils and an eraser with you since you will need a pencil to shade the correct answer on the answer sheet. If you make a mistake, you will need an eraser to erase the mistake.

This is all that you will need for the examination.
Rough paper, scales, calculators, slide rule, logarithm tables, drawing instruments, or CELLULAR PHONES are not permitted into the examination hall, as they are not needed.

Selection procedure:

Soon after the examination, dummy numbers are assigned to each answer paper and all further corrections and computations are done anonymously. After correction, the marks are converted to Stanine (STAndard NINE is a method of scaling test scores on a nine-point standard scale with a mean of five and a standard deviation of two) grades and a final grade is worked out. Selection to the interviews is done purely on the basis of inter-se merit. The interviews and other tests focus on evaluating the person and his/her aptitude for the course.
