The exam will take place in three parts - a written test, Physical Fitness Test (PFT), and Medical Test. The written exam will have four sections namely English, Mathematics, Science, and General Knowledge while the duration will be an hour.
Applicants will be shortlisted for written examination and PFT on the basis of the secured percentage of qualifying (10+2) exam. However, cut-off marks may differ from state to state. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, around 10,000 candidates will be called up for written test and PFT.
After qualifying for the written test, candidates then appear for the PFT which consists of a 1.6km run. To qualify, every candidate has to finish the run in seven minutes. Apart from this, aspirants also have to do 20 squats and 10 push-ups. However, there might be some changes this year in the PFT due to coronavirus pandemic.
After the physical test, the medical exam is conducted by military doctors.
