It looks better that you should have two dictionaries, first comprehensive English dictionary (such as Oxford Advanced Learners’ Dictionary or Cambridge Advanced Learners’ Dictionary) and the dictionary of your subject (such as Penguin Dictionary of Literary Terms). Most of the dictionaries are also available online and in soft form (CDs, DVDs, etc).

  • The written test for Lectureship requires the appropriate speed to do 1 MCQ in a minute and you should ensure this speed by continuous practice before exams. You should attempt at least 5 MCQs test for practice before your test day.

Written Test Format

Written Test for Lectureship contains 100 MCQs comprising question related to qualification of the post/subject and General Knowledge. The candidate is given a ‘question book’ for 100 MCQs along with five options and an answer sheet where five options (A, B, C, D and E) are given against each serial number. The candidate reads the statement from his main ‘question book’, selects the accurate or nearest possible answer and then fills the option given on the answer sheet. (The MCQs given in the model paper or the Dogar’s Lecturers’ Guide for practice illustrate the types of multiple-choice questions in the test.)

Test-Taking Strategies

When you take the test, you will mark your answers on a separate machine-readable or machine-scorable answer sheet. Total testing time is two hours or 100 minutes but there are no separately timed sections. Following are some general test-taking strategies you may want to consider.

You are advised to be careful in the following aspects:

  • Be vigilant and concentrated with respect to your job of completing 100 MCQs within time.
  • Read a statement carefully and then read the options given for it. Pay full attention to them and choose the right option. If you don’t know the option, it seems better you should skip this question and go to the next.
  • Try to exclude the irrelevant choices by following different techniques of exclusion such as four options indicate the same thing and one is different that may be the right answer.
  • Try to save time if the statement is very short and you know the exact answer and this time will be helpful to do the question where answer you are not sure of.
  • Use minimum time for each statement in your first reading of the statements and try to save time for the second reading of not yet attempted questions.
  • Fill the circles of the chosen options quickly using a black marker. Avoid incomplete filling of the circle.
  • Do not fill more than one option.
  • Do not forget to tally the serial number of your question book and that of your answer sheet before filling the option. Since serial numbers of the answer sheet are very close, so the candidates, sometimes, fill the option of another serial number in hurry. Try to avoid.
  • Avoid any error that may cause many errors. For instance, if a candidate skips a question and goes to next and selects its option but while filling the option, he does not care for serial number and fills the options given for a question above.
  • Check one by one and ensure that all the options given against the serial numbers 1-100 have been properly filled and then submit both the sheets to the invigilator.
  • Read the test directions carefully, and work as rapidly as you can without being careless. For each question, choose the best answer from the available options.
  • All questions are of equal value; do not waste time pondering individual questions you find extremely difficult or unfamiliar.
  • You may want to work through the test quite rapidly, first answering only the questions about which you feel confident, then going back and answering questions that require more thought, and concluding with the most difficult questions if there is time.
  • Carefully fill the circle for answer as questions for which you mark no answer or more than one answer are not counted in scoring.
  • Record all answers on your answer sheet. Answers recorded in your test book will not be counted.
  • Do not wait until the last five minutes of a testing session to record answers on your answer sheet.
