The candidates evaluate their marks and match with the answer key in order to see where they stand in the competition and to get an idea about how many scores will they achieve in the respective exam. The students can check how to calculate scores with the help of the answer key as follows:

  • Open the Answer Key Page
  • Now, check the response of question number 1
  • In response sheet, the candidate's given answer is mentioned as 'Candidate's Answer'
  • Once the student checks their answer, they should proceed to see which actually is the right answer
  • If the answer matches the actual answer, mark it as correct and vice versa
  • If the candidate has not attempted the question, mark it as un-attempted.
  • Similarly, the candidate should repeat the steps from 2 to 4 for all the given 100 questions
  • Then, add all the scores of correct answers as well as incorrect ones

After that, use the formula below to evaluate the score: SSC CGL Tier 1 Marks= Total Correct Answers * 2 – Total Incorrect Answers * 0.5 SSC CGL Tier 2 Marks = Paper-1 Marks + Paper-2 Marks + Paper-3 Marks (Junior Statistical Officer) + Paper-4 Marks (Assistant Audit Officer/ Assistant Accounts Officer) Paper-1 Marks = (Total Correct Answers * 2) – (Total Incorrect answers * 0.5) Paper-2 Marks = (Total Correct Answers * 1) – (Total Incorrect answers * 0.25) Paper-3 Marks = (Total Correct Answers * 2) – (Total Incorrect answers * 0.5) Paper-4 Marks = (Total Correct Answers * 2) – (Total Incorrect answers * 0.5)
