Even this challenging situation would ease
So, notwithstanding the system of negative marking, I demand complete overhaul of the system of competitive examinations at every level.
Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.
The purpose of objective test is to test the knowledge of the students in minimum time without the hassles of detailed question answer sheets and their evaluation.
In most of the objective type tests there is one negative mark for 3 wrong answers. In fact there are many people who support the idea that there should be 1 negative mark for 1 wrong answer to discourage the students completely for guessing.
There is no other way to stop a student for answering a question which he does not know.
Knowledge is power.
However as felt by Partha multiple answer questions will not give a correct idea of the caliber of the person. So instead of multiple answer question some descriptive type question answers are also good to test the in depth knowledge of the candidate. A complete overhauling of the examination pattern is required, I think
A positive attitude will lead to positive results.
