How to Calculate Marks for SBI Clerk Prelims Exam?

The SBI Clerk 2020 Prelims exam comprises 100 questions of 100 marks total. 1 mark is awarded for each correct answer and there is a penalty of 0.25 marks for a wrong answer. There is no negative marking for unattempted questions. This means, for every four wrong answers, 1 mark will be deducted from the total marks secured.

For example, if you attempt 84 questions out of 100 this means you have attempted 84 marks. Out of these if 4 are wrong, then there will be a deduction of 1 mark from the total marks secured for your right answers. Hence, you secured 80 out of 100 and 1mark will be deducted and the net marks will be 79.
