  • Total Writing time = 180 minutes
  • Provision for Normal Loss during exams = 30 minutes
  • Net writing time = 150 minutes
  • Time per 1 mark = 150 minutes / 100 marks = 1.5 minutes
  • So a 2 mark question should be solved/answered in = 2 x 1.5 = 3 minutes
  • 10 marks question should be answered in = 10 x 1.5 minutes = 15 minutes and so on.
