How to Calculate Scores Using CDS GK Answer Key?

The UPSC CDS exam answer keys will help students identify their mistakes and calculate their scores. In order to calculate the score, candidates must have a clear knowledge of the marking scheme of the CDS exam. According to the marking scheme:

  • Each correct question carries 0.83 marks
  • 1/3rd of the mark allotted to each question will be deducted for every wrong answer.

CDS GK Score = (Number of correct attempts * 0.83) – (Number of incorrect attempts * 0.33)

Using this formula, candidates can calculate their marks for the GK section. Similarly, candidates can also check the CDS English Answer Key and CDS Elementary Mathematics Answer Key.

With this, candidates can get an idea about whether or not they will clear the CDS Cutoff and be eligible to appear for the next level – the SSB Interview, that will test the intelligence and personality of the candidates.
