IB ACIO-2015 Exam related discussion

edited February 2015 in Miscellaneous
In today's IB ACIO paper was there negative marking for wrong answers? because it was nowhere mentioned in notification, admit card and questions paper. Last yr too there was no negative marking. But now in some groups on FB people are saying negative marking was there. Please if someone has correct information clear this.

    many exams do not have negative marking like Maharashtra PCS. If an exam has negative marking it is mentioned on the question paper or atleast notification mentions it.

    Most answers correct.
    Little correction/doubts in the above answer key -
    25. 2
    I got 11:14 as the answer. Someone could try too.

    42. 1
    Not sure, but bengali social reformers might be true.

    67. 3
    Posthumously, he got bharat Ratna na somewhere near 1992 after his death. Written in wiki too I presume. I ticked wrong option however.

    92. 2
    Option 2 should be correct na? He gave me an advice looks grammatically correct.

    93. 1
    Closest meaning is coming humiliated I guess, instead of defeated or depressed. I ticked option 2 though.
    Please verify the above questions, and the answer key is perfect.

    Ps - getting 60 as per key. @akshayray9 - how much are you expecting or getting?
    ·
  • 2. Is the essay paper checked only after one clears the objective test? Or, checked along with objective and Cutoff decided from total of 150 and not 100?
    Wrote the essay nicely.
