  1. Let me know if there is any type of sample paper.

    1. I could not find any sample paper in the official website of CITD.

  2. Is there any examples of question papers pattern & Details of total marks for appearing exam?

  3. This was helpful. I couldn’t find the syllabus copy or a PDF File for the ME in Design For Manufacturing (DFM). So can you please mention a link about where can I find the syllabus copy so that I could know what subjects I have to deal with in the course.

    1. Syllabus will be available in the above pdf ie in the prospectus

  4. There is negative marking system

    1. Is there negative marking system in citd entrance exam for mtech?

  5. What is meant by thermodynamics?
    Is there any books for reading c.i.t.d?
    What is the syllabus of CITD entrance exam which will be conducted on 5.7.2015?
