Minimum Passing Mark required in each subject

“A candidate for the Common Proficiency Test shall ordinarily be declared to have passed the test if he obtains at one sitting a minimum of thirty per cent marks in each section and a minimum of fifty per cent marks in the aggregate of all the sections, subject to the principle of negative marking, in such manner as may be determined by the Council, from time to time.”

¼ (one fourth) mark shall continue to be deducted for each wrong answer and multiple darkened circles for a question will also be treated as the wrong answer. Accordingly, the minimum marks required in each section and in the aggregate in all sections of CPT as per the revised passing requirements will be as under:-

Subject Maximum Marks Minimum Marks
(Mandatorily to be secured after negative marking)
Fundamentals  of Accounting 60 18
Mercantile Laws 40 12
General Economics 50 15
Quantitative Aptitude 50 15
Total 200 100*

*A candidate is required to secure a minimum of 30 per cent marks in each Section and a minimum of 50 per cent marks in aggregate in all the four Sections to pass the Common Proficiency Test.

Examples :

It is clarified that if a candidate secures a minimum of 50 per cent marks in the aggregate but fails to secure the minimum marks required in any one or more of the sections A, B, C or D (as mentioned above), his result will be FAIL. Similarly, if a candidate secures a minimum of 30 per cent marks in each section but fails to secure 50 per cent marks in the aggregate of all sections, his result will be FAIL. The following table will further illustrate the revised passing requirements:-

Subjects Section A Section B Section C Section D Total Result
  Fundamentals of Accounting Mercantile Laws General Economics Quantitative Aptitude    
Maximum Marks 60 40 50 50 200
Passing Marks 18 12 15 15 100
Student A 20 12 25 35 92 FAIL
Student F 39 10 29 22 100 FAIL
Student E 44 15 23 33 115 PASS
Student P 37 24 31 32 124 PASS

    1. Dear Akanksha,See, if you have been reading NCERT books then I am prtety sure that you have done basic groundwork and revised basics learnt at school level. It is time now, that you embarked on a professional approach towards the exam. Whether you’ll be able to clear Prelims in 2013 completely depends on your aptitude, level of effort put and quality time invested in preparation.Even in case you do not wish to appear in 2013 but only in 2014, you must start preparing now.Regards,Rau’s IAS
