PGIMER 2020 Cut Off:

PGIMER 2020 cut off score will be the lowest possible marks a candidate must obtain in order to be eligible for PGIMER 2020 Counselling Process. PGIMER 2020 cut off score will be based on many factors such as:
1- Total number of candidates appeared in the entrance test.
2- Total number of candidates who passed the entrance test.
3- Difficulty level of question paper.
4- Total number of seats.
5- Based on PGIMER 2020 Cut off for various courses, Percentile score will be generated for each candidate, these percentage scores will depend on the relative difficulty of the question paper, and the relative ability of candidates. Percentile scores will be used for deciding the overall rank of the candidates. Actual scores will not be considered further

Marking system:

The marking system in the exam pattern of PGIMER is different from rest of the entrance tests, however, it does follow a negative marking system.
PGIMER question paper comprises of 250 questions. For every question, there are five response options.
Therefore, total number of responses in the question paper = 250 X 5 = 1250
According to the exam pattern of PGIMER, there can be multiple correct responses for a question. PGIMER prepares a key of the responses that are correct and evaluates a candidate basis this key. All the other responses are considered incorrect.
Therefore, in the PGIMER examination,
Total number of correct responses in the examination + Total number of incorrect responses = 1250
Let’s assume,
Total number of correct responses = x = 700
Total number of incorrect responses = y = 550
Candidate ABC appears for the examination and marks 800 responses in the examination. Out of these 800 responses, 600 are correct.
Total number of correct responses marked by Candidate ABC = a = 600
Total number of incorrect responses marked by Candidate ABC = b = 200
Formula to calculate the score in percentage = [a/x – b/y] X 100
Thus, percentage of marks obtained by Candidate ABC = (600/700 – 200/550) X 100 = 49.35
