NUMS Entry Test is an entry test held once every year for admission in medical universities offering MBBS/BDS like AMC (Army Medical College) and other as listed below. NUMS Entry Test is held by NUMS (National University of Medical Sciences) which is located in Rawalpindi. NUMS Entry Test is also affiliated with NTS who organize the test.
NUMS ENTRY TEST DETAILS
NUMS Entry Test is going to be held on 11th October 2020 which has been confirmed by NUMS. The announcement and advertisement of the test will no doubt come soon which will provide us with all the necessary information. The online registration for the test will start from 28th August 2020 and end on 11th September 2020.
It is expected that NUMS Entry Test will be of similar format and style as last year’s NUMS Entry Test so the format is written below.
The test duration is 2 hours and 30 minutes as was last year and there will be no negative marking. The number of the questions in the test will be 200. The test will have 4 different sections and the subject description is as follows:
Biology (40 %) = 80 questions
Chemistry (30 %) = 60 questions
Physics (20 %) = 40 questions
English (10 %) = 20 questions
Since the test will be conducted by NTS, there shall be different question papers with different color schemes in which the questions shall all be the same but the order of sections of subjects and question shall be shuffled in order to avoid cheating.
