How to calculate total score after negative marking?

Updated on 8th Sep 2020 as per new rules.
First, check your answers with answer keys.

For Rajyaseva Prelims, 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 25% marks) so for 1 wrong answer = 0.50 marks (R) marks. So for 20 wrong answers : 20 x 0.50 = 10 marks to be deducted from 160.

Final Score for Paper 1 : 160 – 10 = 150

Calculation of marks for Paper 2:

Correct answers 60 x 2.5 = 150 marks

Deduction: (1 wrong answer x 25% marks) so for 1 wrong answer = 0.625 marks (R) marks. So for 18 wrong answers : 18 x 0.625 = 11.25 marks to be deducted from 150.

Final Score for Paper 2: 150 – 11.25 = 138.75

Total Score (Paper 1 + 2) : 150 + 138.75 = 288.75

So calculate your own marks based on the above calculation.  इतर सर्व परीक्षांसाठी खालील माहिती बघा:
