IB ACIO Exam related discussion

edited August 27 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.
  • @Sanjeev0120 check kaha se kiya?

  • @akshayray9 Sorry.. checked it with the keys provided here.. ending up with 63..:( wondering wht would be the cut off..
  • edited February 2015
    Getting 66
    Paper likhte waqt laga tha will get at least 80 :(

    42:2 I'll go with englishmen.

    92-2 I also ticked 2

    93 ka defeat likha yaar. Like when we say -I will cast him down.
    (Casting couch to nhi hai , to humiliate :P )

    @abd
    Cut-off should be between 55-65
    Factuals bring everybody down

    Someone is getting 70.

  • @thestrokes_museic : where was your centre??
    vivekand,chembur boy It was like an expedition from home.Gave the Test for practise but even though negative marking isn't mentioned the invigilator told me it's there so I didn't mark all questions,lets see wat happens :-D
    History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.
  • Just checked my answers. Because of small print missed 5 questions. Attempted 95 correct 67
  • Call for interview is highly dependent upon 'Essay'. One must impress the copy checker wid his thoughts. MCQs are not that important and u can't fill up the gap of a poor essay wid high score in MCQs.

    P.S. I was selected in the last ACIO exam.

    I have some diffrent opinion... it depends upon both....generally essays are given average marks.... its not upsc that one can see drastic variations.... guys scoring well in objective have upper hand.... I was also selected last year only...
