Negative marks in GATE

Negative marks method is followed in GATE.  If wrong answer is written for a 1 mark question, 1/3 mark will be cut down.  If the question is a 2 mark question 2/3 mark will be cut down.  So attempt questions which you are confident of. Those questions which consume a lot of time should be attempted at the end.  It is better to leave questions for which answers are not known.
