** Stage 2 will consist of ten questions, and can only be attempted once. Each question in Stage 2 will be timebound and if the participant exceeds the time limit, the questions left unanswered will be considered incorrect and will be marked accordingly. The time limit for each question will vary as per weightage assigned to the question. Each question in Stage 2 will be assigned different weightage based on the difficulty level.
** The aggregate marks scored by the Participant in Stage 1 will be only considered for his entry into Stage 2 and not for the final evaluation. Participants will be shortlisted after the completion of Stage 2.
