 OMG first time I heard negative making in entrance test for studying MLIS

Dear Joel,

We are adopting the negative marking system from last two years. We want to select those students who really deserve and want to avoid the admission of the students by chance. We usually receive more than 500 applications for our 30 seats, so admission into the DLISc., Gauhati University is really a very competitive.
