# How to calculate total score after negative marking?

Suppose you got the following marks in each paper:

• Paper I (100 questions, 200 marks, 2 marks per question ) : Attempted – 100 , Correct – 80, Incorrect – 20
• Paper 2 (80 questions, 200 marks, 2.5 marks per question) : Attempted – 80 , Correct – 60, Incorrect – 20 (18 wrong answers from Ques #1 to 73 and 02 wrong answers from Ques #74 to 80). Out of this, no marks are deducted for wrong answers from question #74 to 80, as they are from decision making and MPSC does not deduct marks for these questions.

Calculation of marks for Paper I:

Correct answers 80 x 2 = 160 marks

Deduction: (1 wrong answer x 0.33% marks) so for 1 wrong answer = 0.66 marks (R) marks. So for 20 wrong answers : 20 x 0.66 = 13.2 marks to be deducted from 160.

Final Score for Paper 1 : 160 – 13.2 = 146.8

Calculation of marks for Paper 2:

Correct answers 60 x 2.5 = 150 marks

Deduction: (1 wrong answer x 0.33% marks) so for 1 wrong answer = 0.82 marks (R) marks. So for 18 wrong answers : 18 x 0.82 = 14.76 marks to be deducted from 150.

Final Score for Paper 2: 150 – 14.76 = 135.24

Total Score (Paper 1 + 2) : 146.8 + 135.24 = 282 .04

So calculate your own marks based on the above calculation
