The Percentile Scores will be calculated up to 5 decimal places to avoid the bunching effect and reduce ties.

In case of two or more candidates secure same Normalized Percentile Score, their merit position will be determined by age criteria i.e., the older person will be placed at higher merit, and in case age being same, then alphabetical order (A to Z) of the name shall be taken into account to break the tie.

  • The exam session consists of three parts as Typing practice for one minute to warm up & familiarize with key board,  Break of 30 seconds and Typing Test for 10 minutes which will be taken for evaluation
  • As the skill test is to determine the speed, candidates who have completed the passage can retype passage from the beginning within the duration of test i.e. 10 minutes. Candidates who do not type the whole passage at least once in 10 minutes will be treated as disqualified. The transcripts of those candidates who do not type 300 words in English or 250 words in Hindi within the prescribed time will not be evaluated
  • The evaluation of the passage typed by the candidate will be done as follows:
  • The mistakes will be classified as full mistakes and half mistakes. 5 per cent mistakes of the total words typed may be ignored. Accordingly, the total number of mistakes will be calculated as under:
  1. No. of full mistakes + No. of half mistakes/2 = Total Mistakes
  2. Number of mistakes – 5 per cent of total number of words typed = Final count of mistakes
  • The typing speed of the candidate will be worked out by the following formula:
  • Typing Speed= No. of total words typed – (Final count of mistake x 10)/Time 
  • For example: If a candidate types a total number of 400 words in 10 minutes and commits 10 final count of mistakes, his speed would be worked out as follows:
  1. 400- (10x10)/10= 300/10 = 30 w.p.m
  • The minimum speed should be 30 words per minute in English and 25 words per minute in Hindi
