  2. AmRITa @ bank po

    Mam plz explain how cut off calculated..I mean suppose I attend 65/80 and 8 wrong..is it 65-2=63(as-0.25 on each wrong one)

    1. No, you do not get marks according to attempted questions
      You get marks of correct answered questions

      65 done, 8 wrong, so 65-8 = 57
      and 8 wrong, so 0.25*2 = 2 negative

      so total 57 – 2 = 55 marks
