If a question is left blank, i.e. no answer is marked by the candidate; there will be no penalty for that question.
Each candidate will have to secure a minimum score in each test and also on total. Mere passing in individual tests may not be sufficient as candidates should also score sufficiently high on Total in order of merit to be called for interviews to be conducted by RRBs.
The cut-off points to qualify in each of the tests will be decided based on the average (Average – ¼ Standard Deviation for General category candidates and Average – ¾ Standard Deviation for Reserved Category candidates)
The corrected scores obtained by each of the candidates in different sessions (if held) will be normalized using equipercentile method.
