Question Category 1
- Only one option is correct.
- Correct response will yield 1 ( one ) mark.
- Incorrect response will yield -1/4 ( 25% negative ) marks.
- For any combination of response with more than one option, the said answer will be treated as incorrect and will yield -1/4 ( 25% negative ) marks.
- Not attempting the question will fetch zero mark.
Question Category 2
- Only one option is correct.
- Correct response will yield 2 ( two ) marks.
- Incorrect response will yield -1/2 ( 25% negative ) marks.
- For any combination of response with more than one option, the said answer will be treated as incorrect and will yield -1/2 ( 25% negative ) marks.
- Not attempting the question will fetch zero mark.
Question Category 3
- One or more options may be correct.
- Only all Correct response will yield 2 ( two ) marks.
- Any combination of correct and wrong response will be treated as incorrect and will yield 0 ( zero )
- For partially correct response, marks awarded will be = 2 x ( no. of correct options marked + total no. of correct options ).
- Not attempting the question will fetch zero mark.
