Uni-GAUGE Syllabus 2018 - ERA foundation, the exam conducting body released Uni-GAUGE 2018 syllabus for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Candidates who applied for the entrance exam need to refer the syllabus of Uni-GAUGE 2018 to prepare in a better way. The questions in the entrance exam were asked from the existing syllabus of class XI & XII or any equivalent exam. But, it was still important for candidates to refer to Uni-GAUGE syllabus 2018 as it was officially announced by the authorities and it also contained the topics and sub-topics of the subjects of the exam - Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. The Uni-GAUGE 2018 syllabus was divided by candidates according to their convenience while preparing for the exam, in which, they were required to answer 180 questions. Candidates must know that for every correct answer in Uni-GAUGE, 1 mark will be awarded and there will be no negative marking for wrong answers in the exam. The complete syllabus of Uni-GAUGE 2018 can be checked by candidates from the full article given below.
