URANIUM TALENT SEARCH EXAMINATION(UTSE) - 2011
Time: 60 minutes(11 am - 12 noon) Class- IX F.M - 180(+3/-1 system) Declaration of Result in the internet(www.theuranium.org) : 15.03.2011 (There are 60 MCQs and each has one correct answer. You are required to darken the appropriate circle in the OMR answer sheet with the help of a HB pencil. Eraser can be used to change any answer. Note that improper darkening will make your answer sheet invalid by the computer. 3 marks will be given for each correct answer and 1 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. Ball point pen can be used for darkening but once darkened cannot be erased) (Uploading of correct answer in the internet: 07.02.2011)
