Change in CPT Passing Criteria

SLMS.jpgRevised passing requirements for Common Proficiency Test (CPT) effective from June, 2013

it is notified for general information that
the passing requirements of CPT effective from June, 2013 shall be as under:-

“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 30% marks in each section and a minimum of 50% 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 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:-

*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.

In other words, 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.
