PENALTY FOR WRONG ANSWERS (Applicable to both – Preliminary and Main examination)

The above tests except the Test of English Language will be printed bilingually, i.e. English and Hindi.There will be penalty for wrong answers marked in the Objective Tests. For each question for which a wrong answer has been given by the candidate one fourth or 0.25 of the marks assigned to that question will be deducted as penalty to arrive at corrected score. If the total of the penalty for a test is in fraction, the marks obtained will be rounded off to the nearest integer, i.e. if fraction exceeds by 0.50 or more, it will be rounded off to next higher integer. If for any question a candidate gives more than one answer, it will be treated as wrong even if one of the given answers happens to be right and there will be the same penalty of 0.25 of the marks assigned to that question deducted as penalty. If a question is left blank, i.e. no answer is given by the candidate; there will be no penalty for that question. 

STANDARDIZED SCORES  

The corrected scores obtained by each of the candidates will further be converted into standardized scores following Linear Conversion Method. 

CUTOFF SCORE  

Each candidate will have to secure a minimum standardized score in each of the tests to qualify in the written examination and to be considered for vacancies in the participating banks.
