  1. Sir please tell me how to calculate negative marking for kas Prelims

    • For every wrong answer, 0.25 marks will be deducted from the total marks. For example, out of 100 questions (Paper 1), you attempt 80 and mark 20 wrong. So, negative marking will be 0.5*20 = 10 marks. Hence, 10 marks from your total score will be deducted. Same applies for Paper 2.
