How to calculate marks using the answer key?
The exam consisted of four papers namely Paper-I: Quantitative Ability, Paper-II: English Language and Comprehension, Paper-III: Statistics, and Paper-IV: General Studies (Finance and Economics). While papers 1, 3, 4 had 100 questions of 200 marks, paper 2 had 200 questions of 200 marks. Further, the negative marking in papers 1, 3, 4 is 0.5 and that in paper 2 is 0.25.
Therefore, one can calculate marks using the following formula:
Marks in paper 1 = Total number of correct answers x 2 – Total number of correct answers x 0.5
Marks in paper 2 = Total number of correct answers x 1 – Total number of correct answers x 0.25
Marks in paper 3 = Total number of correct answers x 2 – Total number of correct answers x 0.5
Marks in paper 4 = Total number of correct answers x 2 – Total number of correct answers x 0.5
