  • The score of PGIMER will be calculated in a very objective manner without any human bias and subjectivity.
  • PGIMER Question Paper consists of 250 questions, each with five response option.
  • One or more of these five responses can be correct. In total, there are 1250 responses.
  • There are some correct responses in the question paper (a) and some incorrect responses (b, so that a+b = 1250).
  • The candidates’ responses are to the 1250 possible responses are matched with the true answer with the help of customized software.
  • True correct responses are given positive marks while incorrect responses are marked negatively. Blank responses are not evaluated.

Formula used to calculate the percentage score of PGIMER exam:

  • The calculation of the PGIMER 2017 Percentage Score is through a formula: [x/a-y/b] x 100.
  • For example: A candidate has marked 580 responses as correct out of 600 correct responses in a question paper. Out of the marked 580 responses, 450 are truly correct and the remaining 130 are incorrect,
  • Then a = 600, b = 650, x = 450 and y = 130. Therefore the percentage score of the candidate will be: [(450/600) – (130/650)] x 100 = 55.0.
