  2. Calculate the total errors after dictated passage is received by the examiner.
  3. 1/2 mark is deducted for error in shorthand script and one mark is deducted for one error in transcribed script. 
  4. The total of errors is counted and they should not exceed 5% i.e if a candidate takes dictation of 400 words, his errors should not be more than 20. 
  5. 400-20=380   380x100/400=95%
  6. 95% accuracy is required for successful candidates appearing in shorthand test
  • Typing Test on Computer
  1. Five strokes are equal to one word.

  3. If a candidate types 200 words in the stipulated five minutes and he made 10 errors, then his speed will be calculated as under: Total words typed 200  Errors 10x5 = 50. 200-50 = 150/5 = 30 words per minute
