CAT 2015: Changes to scoring scheme

We had earlier written about the changes to the CAT 2015 pattern. Yesterday, an additional change was notified by the CAT 2015 exam authorities : There will be no negative marking for Direct questions.


This change will encourage students to attempt the direct questions without worrying about getting it wrong. At Oliveboard, we have already incorporated this change for our Mocks, first of which will be available from August 1st 2015.

So, the new scoring scheme for CAT 2015 will look this:

Question Type Marks for Correct Marks for Wrong
Multiple Choice Questions +3 -1
Direct Questions +3 0
