Staff Selection Commission (SSC) on Monday announced a change to the negative marking criteria of the Junior Engineer (Civil, Mechanical & Electrical) Examination, 2023.
As per the latest notice issued on ssc.nic.in, in paper 1 of the examination, 0.25 marks will be deducted for each incorrect answer.
In paper 2, negative marking of 1 mark will be applicable in the case of incorrect answers, the commission said.
