Rule :

1. Minimum of 30% marks in each of the four sections/subjects.

* subject to the principle of negative marking, in such manner as may be determined by the Council, from time to time.

Students appearing  in CA CPT Dec 2016 exam will have to get 100 marks with 30% at least in each of the sections/subjects to crack the CPT exam.

Minimum Passing Mark required in each subject

“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 thirty per cent marks in each section and a minimum of fifty per cent 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:-


SubjectMaximum MarksMinimum Marks
