Subjects covered: Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology, Microbiology, Biochemistry and Nutrition, Agriculture, Dairy technology, Engineering, Horticulture and Home Science. Thus you have a diversified range of 11 subjects to be covered in next 50 odd days to prepare yourself for a highly competitive and prestigious exam. You should use this 50 days wisely and in right direction
Thus, if you see every student will have some strength and some weakness and this will still remain till exam date. So, don’t get tensed if you have not got confidence in 1-2 subjects.
What will be exam pattern?
CFTRI has not mentioned anything about exam pattern. So its better to consider that they will follow last year exam pattern. Last year it was
Max. Marks - 100, No negative marking
MCQ : 40-50,
Fill in the blanks : 30-40

How to practice for exam?
As mentioned earlier also, just refer to your class notes and basic topics. Don’t go in depth of any topic as you have very less time. A superficial but good fundamental knowledge would be sufficient to crack the exam. For practice you can use Objective Food Science book by Sharma and Kalwit (available in www.amazon.com).
Should I apply for CFTRI, if I don’t have high marks in graduation?
Students with less marks in graduation can also qualify for CFTRI. It may require extra effort but it is not impossible. Let me explain you by simple example. Suppose, you have 80% marks in graduation and another person has 90% marks. As 50% weightage is for graduation marks, it means, you have 40 marks and another person has 45 marks. So, in entrance exam, you will have to solve 5 extra questions than your competitor J
How to prepare for online exam?
We have come out with an online exam experience in www.maniavarsity.com. For a systematic
exam preparation, we are presenting it in two parts -
LEVEL 1: Practice test for each subject. These are small set of questions (50 nos) on each subjects prescribed in syllabus. This will prepare you subject wise
LEVEL 2: Actual mock test which is representative of real exam experience. Here you will be exposed to exam environment – 100 questions sequentially presented to you and a pressure of time.
How can I assess my level of exam preparation?
As such when you prepare for exam, you prepare in isolation. You compare against your self but you are totally unaware of how your competitors have prepared themselves. CFTRI entrance exam is a cut-throat completion. You need to be a step ahead of your competitors. For this mock tests are best route to evaluate your level your preparation.
As mentioned earlier also, Mock Tests are real exam scenario created to assess exam preparation of all aspirants. At the end of mock test, you not only get how you performed but also you get how others have prepared. At the end of mock test, you also get subject wise analysis which will help you to pull up your socks in that subject.
I wish good luck for the upcoming exam
