To enhance your chances to qualify entrance exam we are trying to provide you the pattern of the exam and trends of topics. However this time we have limitations as we have only one paper (2014) to analyze, the earlier papers are not available neither in the market nor in the university’s resources.

First coming to the pattern of examination; the paper is divided into two parts viz Section - A and Section - B.

Section A contains 100 questions of MCQ type, each with two marks and no negative marking. While the Section B consists of 10 short answers type questions, each with 10 marks and the answers to be written within the boxed space provided for that question.


Zoology is the vast subject includes both core areas of animal sciences and applied area of biology therefore we can discuss the topics accordingly.


1. The core areas of animal sciences as the name suggests, includes classification, diversity in animal kingdom, animal physiology, evolution and developmental biology. As the table below shows there are 44 questions from these topics in Section-A in 2014, upto 50 questions are expected in the entrance.

Animal kingdom

a. For animal physiology mainly focus on human physio especially on excretion-osmoregulation, digestive, endocrine, nervous and respiratory systems.

2Applied areas of biology especially molecular biology, genetic engineering, biochemistry, microbiology and cell biology are good bat and scoring. Class notes and study material we had provided you are more than sufficient for these topics

a. For the microbiology topics you must emphasize on human diseases, their causative agents, vectors, microbial culture, growth and nutrition.

3. Ecology is important for both sections, at least 5-8 questions are expected in section A.

For section B (short answer questions) focus on diagram, graph, curve, pathways, comparison, tables and phenomenon related topics. Cultivate the habit to write brief answers, draw figures, graphs etc. on rough papers, and follow the principles of Attention, Retention, Reproduction and Motivation as stated by A. Bandura.


Enquiries and suggestion are welcome.
Thank you all
