Skip or Not? How to tackle negative marking in DNB CET?

How to decide on attempting MCQs for your DNB CET June 2016?

This is not very complicated but many candidates get it wrong. There are medical PG candidates who attend up to 4 or 5 different medical PG exams a year. And some go with blanket policies on attending MCQs  whether there is a negative marking or not. This single approach needs to be abandoned and a personal strategy needs to be adopted.

What is the best for DNB CET June 2016? Skip or Not?

Don’t Skip. Attempt All. There are no negative marks for DNB CET July 2016 and there are no negative marks for AIPGMEE 2016. Hence all MCQs should be attempted  for these two exams. You have a 25% change of getting it correct. But always try to reduce the 4 choices by eliminating 2. This will give you a 50% change for getting it right. 

What is the best for AIIMS PG Nov 2015? Skip or Not?

Skip Judiciously. You have negative marks for wrong answers in AIIMS PG! You get 3 marks for correct answer and -1 for wrong. This makes guesswork very difficult. Answer only if you know the answer. If you are sure that you have eliminated 2 choices you still have a 50% chance, then attempt. If you are not sure SKIP. This is your best bet. 

What is the best for State Medical PG Exams in 2016 with +4 for correct and -1 for mistakes? Skip or Not?

Attempt with 50% elimination. It is important to attempt questions if you can eliminate 2 choices. This gives you a 50% chance. If you eliminate 1 choice, it gives you 33% chance. Do you need to take a 33% chance? It is debatable and also depends on your overall preparation. You don’t want negative marks eating into your hard earned positive marks. But definitely attempt if you eliminate 2 choices. If you get one of your guess right this will give you 4 marks that could cover 1 wrong guess. You will still have 3 positive marks left! It’s a good deal.
