As per the changes announced, the BPSC 68th mains exam will have 100 questions in optional paper instead of 300. Additionally, BPSC Mains 2023 will have multiple-choice questions (MCQs).
Earlier, the BPSC 68th prelims exam had negative marking for a selected number of questions. “For example, if 50 out of 150 questions i.e. l/3 questions are selected for negative marking, then l/3 questions from each section shall be selected. Such selected questions should have 2 marks for correct answer and l/2 for wrong answer.”
However, now the negative marking will be uniformly distributed on all the 150 questions. For each correct answer, 1 mark will be awarded and for each wrong answer, 0.25 marks will be deducted.
Candidates can look at the new marking scheme for the BPSC Mains 2023 exam from the table below. As per the new changes, it is mandatory for candidates to qualify the optional paper to be shortlisted.
