Here the time to write the complete sentence is very short .i.e. candidates will only get 15 seconds for reading the word from the screen & write complete sentence based on that particular word on the answer sheet provided to them. After 15 seconds, a new word will appear on the screen. The candidate has to repeat the same procedure & it goes on. 60 such words will appear on the screen. And remember at least 45 has to be attempted.
