Method to Calculate Score
Admission authority of PGIMER will use a unique technique for calculating scores. The question paper of PGIMER 2020 would include 250 multiple choice questions each with five answer options. Of these five options, there can be one or more correct response(s). So, there are 1250 responses in total out which say, ‘a’ is the number of correct responses and ‘b’ is the number of incorrect responses and thus, a+b = 1250. Positive marks will be awarded for a every correct answer; likewise for selecting a wrong option, marks will be deducted. For questions left answered, zero marks will be awarded. The choices opted by the candidate will be processed by a customized software and score will be calculated. Now, assuming ‘x’ is the number of truly correct answers and ‘y’ is the number of answers wrongly marked by the candidate, the percentage score of the candidate is calculated by using the formula given below:
Percentage Score of a candidate= [x/a–y/b]*100
To give an illustration, let us assume that the question paper has 600 correct responses but the candidate has marked 580 responses correctly of which only 450 are truly correct while the remaining 130 are incorrect. So in this case, a = 600, b = 650, x = 450 and y = 130 and the percentage score of the candidate is
[(450/600) – (130/650)]*100 = 55%.
