MCQ is one of the easiest ways to conduct exams for teachers as well as students. The teacher provides a sheet and the student just has to tick the correct answer. No lengthy write-ups. Just a tick and it’s done.
Mostly, exams like UPSC, CAT, IIT, JEE, etc are conducted using MCQs. The basic purpose of these exams is to evaluate the subject knowledge of the students.
Previously, these tests were conducted without negative marking. Here you don’t lose any marks for giving a wrong answer.
