    Each correct answer is awarded 3 marks.
    An incorrect answer fetches -1.
    No marks are given or deducted for unattempted questions.
    There are no negative marks for non-MCQ type questions.
    All questions carry equal marks. However, for non-MCQ type questions, you must    type the answer.
