eLitmus Test Negative Marking
Yes, there is negative marking in eLitmus Exam and the negative marking rules used to be complicated till 2017 –
Old eLitmus Negative Marking Rule –
Elitmus used to follow a differential negative marking scheme. i.e. A question is marked negative after attempting 25% of questions wrong of the total attempts made.
Example: If 24 questions are answered. 25% or ¼ of 24 is 6. So if of these 24 questions following can be the scenario
- 19 right attempts & 5 wrong attempts – no negative marking
- 18 right attempts & 6 wrong attempts – no negative marking
- 17 right attempts & 7 wrong attempts – negative marking only on 1 question (i.e. after making 6 wrong attempts)
|Section||Total Questions||Percentage of wrong Questions||Marks Deducted||Buffer Percentage of wrong Questions||Marks Deducted if more|
|Aptitude||20||less than 25||0 marks per question||Equal or more than 25%||5 marks per question|
|Logical||20||less than 25||0 marks per question||Equal or more than 25%||5 marks per question|
