  • Scoring Methodology

a) Category-I

  • Only one option is correct.
  • Correct response will yield 1 (one) mark for each question.
  • Incorrect response will yield -1/4 (25% negative) marks for each question.
  • For any combination of more than one option, even if it contains the correct option, the said answer will be treated as incorrect and will yield -¼ (negative 25%) marks.
  • Zero mark will be awarded for not attempting any question.

b) Category-II

  • One or more option(s) is/are correct.
  • Marking all correct options only will yield 2 (two) marks.
  • For any combination of answers containing one or more incorrect options, the said answer will be treated as incorrect, and it will yield zero (0) mark even if one or more of the chosen option(s) is/are correct.
  • For partially correct answers, i.e., when all correct options are not marked and also no incorrect options are marked, marks awarded = 2 × (no of correct options marked/ total no of actually correct options)
  • Zero mark will be awarded for not attempting any question.

Mode of answering in the examination

  • Questions are to be answered on a specially designed optical machine-readable response (OMR) sheet, which will be evaluated by Optical Mark Recognition method. Thus, it is very important to follow the correct method of marking.
  • Candidates will indicate response to the questions by darkening the appropriate circle/bubble completely with blue/black ink ball point pen.
