For each question, four options of answers will be given and the candidate has to darken the appropriate bubble of correct answer in the answer sheet by using blue/black ballpoint pen only. Each question of this MCQ will carry one mark and there will be 0.25 negative marking for each wrong answer. However, the question not attended will fetch zero marks. While darkening the correct answer, one must keep in mind that if an incorrect answer is darkened inadvertently and thereafter the correct answer also darkened by cancelling the earlier answer, negative mark will be given for such double attempt.
