The examination for the posts of Junior Engineer is to be conducted by the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) in October 2023. Before the examination, the marking system of JE recruitment examination was amended by SSC. Now SSC will deduct 0.25 percent marks instead of one-third for every wrong answer. In such a situation, all the candidates who are going to appear in the examination this time should take a look at these changes.
Earlier, for both the papers, negative marking was one-third of the total marks allotted to that question. As per the latest notice released on ssc.nic.in, now in paper one of the exam, 0.25 marks will be deducted for each wrong answer. The commission said that in paper two, deduction of one mark will be applicable in case of wrong answers.
