Design of Questions

The questions in a paper may be designed to test the following abilities:

Recall :

These are based on facts, principles, formulae or laws of the discipline of the paper. The candidate is expected to be able to obtain the answer either from his/her memory of the subject or at most from a one-line computation.


These questions will test the candidate’s understanding of the basics of his/her field, by requiring him/her to draw simple conclusions from fundamental ideas.


In these questions, the candidate is expected to apply his/her knowledge either through computation or by logical reasoning.

Analysis and Synthesis:

These can be linked answer questions, where the answer to the first question of the pair is required in order to answer its successor. These also could be common data questions, in which two questions share the same data but can be solved independently of each other.

Marking Scheme

For a multiple choice question having one mark, 1/3 mark will be deducted for a wrong answer. Likewise, for 2 marks multiple-choice questions, 2/3 mark will be deducted for a wrong answer. However, for the linked answer question pair, where each question carries 2 marks, 2/3 mark will be deducted for a wrong answer to the first question only.

There is no negative marking for wrong answer to the second question of the linked answer question pair. If the first question in the linked pair is wrongly answered or is unattempted, then the answer to the second question in the pair will not be evaluated. There is no negative marking for numerical answer type questions.
