    Re: Tell about negative marking in UPSC Civil Service Exams.

    Hello,

    Negative marking is only there in objective exams. For every wrong option selected, there is 1/3rd marks penalty. If you select more than one choice, then also you will be penalised. But. if you leave any question, there will be no penalty.

    Thanks,

    Dear Friend


    Yes there is negative marking in both the objective papers of civil services examinations.It is done to pick the real talented candidates as if there will be no negative marking then candidates with little knowledge can clear the exam by just hitting the options.

    The scheme of marking for the civil services examinations are ;

    Paper I:

    >>For every correct answer :two marks awarded.

    >>For very wrong answer; 2/3 of marks will be deducted that is 1/3 of a correct answer will be deducted.

    That is for every three wrong answers two marks will be deducted.

    Paper II;

    >>For every correct answers 2.5 marks will be awarded.

    >>For every wrong answer 2.5/3 marks will be deducted.

    That is for every three wrong answer 2.5 marks will be deducted.


    Hope the information helps you .

    all the best
