Prelims is in general an objective written exam. It involves no syllabus or general knowledge and relies solely on the student's logical and analytical thinking abilities. The exam is generally of 2 and ½ hour length. The question paper will have various sections like maths, puzzles, code crunchers etc. Each section has its own marking scheme.
The two team members are given a common Question paper and answer sheet and they can discuss it amongst themselves and attempt the paper together.
These questions are designed in a way to properly check the intellect and problem solving abilities of the participants. This also involves development of proper teamwork amongst the participants thus leading to wholesome development of students.
