    hi,

    there is nothing like negative marking in mains but in prelims there is 0.6 or 0.5 is there for negative marks.

    if you wants to clear your prelims then go far from negative then only you can clear it.

    all the best

    hi
    as far as the negative marking is concerned. You have the negative marking in only the prelimns paper. you do not have the negative marking in the mains because the mains paper is of the subjective type.
    In the prelims exam, there is a negative 1/3 marks given to you for every wrong answer you mark.

    There are no negative marking in CS Mains.There is negative marking in Prelims as it is and objective test.But CS mains is a total subjective test and there is no concept of negative marking as such in Mains exam.For mains exam,tak care that your answers should be rich in content and quality.Only that will be helpful in scoring good marks.
