However, for the common candidates, 45 minutes each will be given for Section 1A and 1B for the exam. For Section II, additional 15 minutes will be given for each domain-specific subject. "For section III, that is a general test, 60 minutes will be given to a common candidate but for PwBD candidates, 20 minutes extra will be allotted," Gandhi said.
