Key Notes :
No Negative Marking:
The TCS NQT for 2024 will not feature negative marking. This provides candidates with the opportunity to approach questions strategically without the fear of penalties.
Non-Adaptive Test:
TCS NQT is non-adaptive this year. This means that the difficulty level of the questions remains constant throughout the test, allowing candidates to plan their time effectively.
On-Screen Calculator and Rough Paper:
Candidates won’t receive physical rough paper during the exam. Instead, a digital calculator and virtual rough paper will be available on the desktop screen. This adjustment aims to streamline the examination process.
Restricted Eye Movement:
A notable change in the exam protocol is the prohibition of moving eyes down while taking the test. This emphasizes the need for focused attention on the screen during the examination.
