    Is exam for each candidate different?

    Based on a query by a reader of indianexpress.com, whether the question paper for each candidate is different. Well no! Each candidate who is appearing for the exam in the same shift will have the same question paper. Just to avoid any cheating candidates' question papers will be jumbled, implying the positioning of questions and their respective answers will be different for two students in the same shift but each shift will have same question paper. Since the exam will be conducted in two shifts, each day two exam sets will be given and over the period of time, as many as 16 different question papers will be given to students.

    The candidates who attempt the comparatively tougher examination are likely to get lower marks as compared to those who attempt the easier one.

    What is percentile score?

    Percentile scoring is a mechanism of given relative marks to students. Instead of the marks each candidate has gained, there will be a comparison between the candidates and those who have score maximum will get 100 percentile which can even mean 97/100. Therefore the topper(highest score) of each session will get the same percentile of 100 which is desirable. The marks obtained in between the highest and lowest scores are also converted to appropriate Percentiles.
