Marks Calculation Process using CLAT Answer Key
CLAT Scores = Total numbers of Correct options*1 - Total number of incorrect responses*0.25
For example – If a student attempts 140 questions and correctly attempts 110 questions out of 150, then his/her marks would be calculated in this way.
- Question attempted: 150
- Correct Questions: 120
- Questions Left: 10
- Wrong questions: 30
That means his total marks would be: 120-(30*.25)+0 = 120-7.5 = 112.5 Marks
