1. Please read the following guidelines carefully and seek clarifications
from the Head Examiner in case of any doubt to reduce subjectivity and bias.
2. Credit should be given to student writing the concept in his own
language. Marks should not be deducted for non use of bookish language.
3. Every care has been taken to prepare the Marking Scheme. However, it is
important to keep in mind that, it is neither exhaustive nor exclusive. Full
credit should be given to candidates who give relevant points other than the
ones listed in the Marking Scheme as the answers to the questions. The examiners
are requested to use their own knowledge and experience wherever necessary.
4. The Marking Scheme carries only suggested value points for an
answer. These are only the guidelines and do not constitute the complete answer.
The students can have their own expression and if the expression is correct, the
marks should be awarded accordingly.
5. Marking should be neither over-strict nor over-liberal. Marks should not
be deducted for spelling errors, wrong proper names, minor inaccuracies or
omission of detail. No marks should be deducted for overshooting word limit.
6. Though break-up of value points is given in a number of answers, the
examiner may be flexible in marking the different parts, if the answers reflect
understanding of the scope of the question.
7. A full scale of marks 0-100 has to be used. Please do not hesitate to
award full marks if the answer deserves it.
8. As per orders of The Hon’ble Supreme Court, the candidates would now be
permitted to obtain photocopy of the answer book on request on payment of the
prescribed fee. All Examiners/ Head examiners are once again reminded that they
must ensure that evaluation is carried out strictly as per value points for each
answer as given in the marking scheme.
9. All the Head examiners/Examiners are instructed that while evaluating the
answer scripts, if the answer is found to be totally incorrect, the (x) should
be marked on the incorrect answer and awarded (0) marks.
