Note 1: The whole syllabus has been divided into five modules.
Note 2: Structure of the question paper
There will be three groups in the question paper. In Group A, there will be one set of multiple choice type questions spreading the entire syllabus from which 10 questions (each carrying one mark) are to be answered. From Group B, three questions (each carrying 5 marks) are to be answered out of a set of questions covering all the three modules. Three questions (each carrying 15 marks) are to be answered from Group C. Each question of Group C will have three parts covering not more than two topics (marked in bold italics faces). Sufficient questions should to be set covering all modules.
