Re: Negative marks for 2 marks question in GATE is 1.33 or 0.66?

hi..
the score pattern of the GATE EXAM is as follows,
for i marks question 1/3 mark will be deducted that means 0.33 marks will be deducted for every i mark question which is wrong,
for 2 marks question 2/3 marks will be deducted,that means 1.33 marks will be deducted for every 2 marks question that is wrong
this is the general scoring pattern

Re: Negative marks for 2 marks question in GATE is 1.33 or 0.66?

hello,

The negative marking scheme for gate exam is that:

> For one mark,for every wrong answer,1/3 of the mark is deducted.

>For two marks,for every wrong answer,2/3 of the mark is deducted.

For link answer type questions only the second ans is considered to be right when the first answer is correct.

for every 1 marks question 1/3 of the marks will be deducted if the answer given by the candidate is wrong.
for every 2 marks question 2/3 of the marks will be deducted if the answer given by the candidate is wrong.
