Method of Negative Marking in the MD/MS Entrance Examination

The question paper has 250 questions with 5 options each, and hence a total of 1250 options (responses) some of which are correct (a) and others are incorrect (b).

Marking is done on the basis of answer options marked by the candidate. If the No. of correct responses marked =x and No. of incorrect responses marked =y

% score=(x/a-y/b) x 100

The result will be declared as “percentile” and not as “percentage” score.

The post−graduate courses (MD/MS) are much sought after by medical graduates (MBBS) and only a few among hundreds are able to get into it.
