'While preparing the rank list, one question has been deleted since there was no correct answer among the options. This question has not been included for valuation and no marks have been awarded for this deleted question to any candidate. The marks obtained for the remaining 199 questions have been multiplied by (200/199) to get the actual marks (corrected to four decimals). The above formula is applied to award proportionate marks based on the score of the candidates in the questions considered for valuation (excluding deleted questions) to compensate the loss of marks for the deleted questions,' reads the official notification.
Answer key of the exam was released on 7 August 2017. Taking the complaints made on the keys and after examining the same by Expert Committee, few answers had been revised and one question had been deleted.
