Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 2nd Apr, 2020

Sanju, both the formats of name are fine. It is just the surname has been moved. So it is fine with both the formats of name. You will not face any issue during the document verification. But when you are filling the application form, please mention the name according to your SSC Marks sheet. And because your SSC marks sheet is also considered as a proof of your date of birth, it is important you mention the details as per your SSC Marks sheet only.


I want to select my catagory as EWS during submission of application form for NIPER JEE 2020 which is going to release from 1st april....for this which session of EWS (2019-2020) or (2020- 2021) is required, as (2019-2020) is valid till 31st march and renew is not possible due to covid-19

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 1st Apr, 2020

In this situation i would suggest you to go with current ews certificate and apply as EWS category candidate and apply for renewal as soon as the lockdown is over.You need to have renewed EWS certificate at the time of document verification which is months away from now.This situation is known to everybody and i am sure the authorities will support students in this situation.

Good Luck

which type of gk is included in this exam i mean to that like current affairs, or history or world wide current affairs?

srikar kanakala 28th Mar, 2020

Dear Kajal,

Firstly, for an competitive or entrance exam, general knowledge is considered to be a crucial section which most of us avoid and focus more on analytical and logical section of the test. This is where most of us lose marks that can help us increasing our percentile.

In any competitive exam, the type of questions one can expect are mostly based on current affairs. For instance, if 80% of the questions are regarding current affairs then remaining 20% is about history and other domain. But, most of the test patterns specify that the general knowledge questions will be based on current affairs on their website or link.



Shubham Dhane 26th Mar, 2020


You must pass in the qualifying exam and obtain your results and certificate at the time of counselling.You need to provide your class 10 and degree certificate (all semesters/years)along with other documents at the time of counselling.If you fail to provide the documents you will not be eligible to continue in the further process.
