However, this is only if the question is in MCQ form. If the question would have been numerical value question, then “four marks (+4) will be awarded to all those who have attempted the question. The reason could be due to human error or technical error,” NTA explains.

In such situations when a question has more than one correct answer, candidates who selected either of these two answers will be given full marks, but the candidates who did not mark either of these will not be awarded any mark. “If more than one option is found to be correct then Four marks (+4) will be awarded to only those who have marked any of the correct options,” NTA notice reads.
