Steps to Calculate the Score with the help of GATE Answer Keys
First, identify the total number of correct answers and then allocate marks accordingly and subsequently calculate the overall marks. Finally, the candidate has to tally the overall negative marks for wrong attempts. Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) will be given negative marks for wrong answers. Meanwhile, NAT questions will not have any negative marking. So the calculation is as follows:
- MCQs Mark: Total marks (1 mark) + Total marks (2 marks)
- Total marks (1 mark) = 1 x no. of correct attempts – 1/3 x no. of wrong attempts
- Total marks (2 marks) = 2 x number of correct attempts – 2/3 x number of wrong attempts
- NAT Marks: Total marks (1 mark) + Total marks (2 marks)
Formula: Total marks = Total marks secured for correct response – Negative marks for the wrong answer.
