The TS-SET will be conducted in objective mode. The test will consist of three papers. All the three papers will consist of multiple choice questions and will be held on the day of examination in two separate sessions as under:
|Session||Paper||Number of Questions||Marks||Duration|
|First||I||60 out of which 50 questions are to be attempted||50x2=100||1¼ Hours (09.30 am to 10.45 am)|
|First||II||50 questions all of which are compulsory||50x2=100||1¼ Hours (10.45 am to 12.00 noon)|
|Second||III||75 questions all of which are compulsory||75x2=150||2½ Hours (01.30 pm to 04.00 pm)|
This paper shall be of general nature intended to assess the teaching/research aptitude of the candidate. It will be primarily designed to test reasoning ability, comprehension, divergent thinking and general awareness of the candidate. There will be sixty (60) multiple-choice questions of two marks each of out of which the candidate will be required to answer any fifty (50). In the event of the candidate attempting more than fifty questions, the first fifty questions attempted by the candidate will be evaluated.
This paper consists of multiple- choice questions based on the subject selected by the candidates. The paper will consists of fifty (50) multiple choice questions. The candidates will have to answer all the questions. The candidates will have to mark their response for each question on the computer coded optical mark reader (OMR) answer sheet provided along with the test booklet.
This paper consists of multiple choice questions based on the syllabus of the subject selected by the candidates. The paper will consist of seventy-five (75) multiple-choice questions. The candidates will be required to answer all the questions and have to mark their response for each question on the computer coded optical mark reader(OMR)answer sheet provided along with the test booklet.
Paper-III of all the subjects covers all the specializations of that subject in which SET is conducted. For example Paper-III of Chemical Sciences covers all specializations such as Analytical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Marine Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Applied Chemistry, Nuclear Chemistry, & Bio-inorganic Chemistry.
Similarly, Paper-III of Earth Sciences covers such as Geology, Applied Geology, MS Geology, Geophysics, Meteorology, Marine Geology, Petroleum Geology, Geo-Informatics, Applied Geochemistry & Oceanography.
Paper-III of Life Sciences covers all specializations such as Botany, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Genetics, Microbiology, Zoology, Fishery Science, Animal Biology & Marine Biology.
Paper-III of Mathematical Sciences covers all specializations such as Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics & Applied Statistics.
Paper-III of Physical Sciences covers all specializations such as Atomic & Molecular Physics, Classical Dynamics, Condensed Matter Physics, Electromagnetics, Experimental Design, Electronics, Nuclear Physics, Space Physics, Particle Physics, Quantum Physics & Thermodynamics.
*A candidate who does not appear for Paper-I and Paper-II will not be permitted for Paper-III.
*There will be No negative Marking
Visually Challenged Candidates shall be provided 30 minutes extra time separately for Paper-land Paper- II. For Paper-III, 45 minutes extra time shall be provided. They will also be provided with a scribe who should be a graduate in a subject other than candidate’s subject. Further, Physically Challenged candidates, who are not in a position to write in their own hand-writing can also avail these services by making prior request (at least one week before the date of SET) in writing to the Member Secretary of the TS-SET, Osmania University. Extra time and facility of scribe would not be provided to other Persons with Disability (Physically Challenged) candidates.
Step-I: Minimum marks to be obtained in TS-SET for considering a candidate for the eligibility for lectureship:
The candidates are required to obtain following minimum marks separately in Paper-I, Paper-II and Paper-III as given below:
|Minimum marks (%) to be obtained|
|General||40 (40%)||40 (40%)||75 (50%)|
|OBC(Non-creamy layer) /SC/ST/PWD||35 (35%)||35 (35%)||60 (40%)|
Step-II:Amongst those candidates who have cleared Step-I, a merit list will be prepared subject-wise and category-wise using the aggregate marks of all the three papers secured by such candidates.
Step-III:Top 15% candidates (for each subject and category), from the merit list mentioned under step-II, will be declared qualified in TS-SET.
It may be noted that the above qualifying criteria decided by the Moderation Committee of TS-SET is final and binding.
The candidates will be allowed to carry a carbon less copy of the OMR Response Sheets and Test Booklets with them on conclusion of examination.
