# Find the total marks obtained according to given marking scheme

• Difficulty Level : Basic
• Last Updated : 14 Apr, 2021

Given the answer key of N MCQ and the answer marked by the student. The task is to calculate the Marks of the student.

Marking Scheme is as follows:

• +3 marks for every correct answer.
• -1 marks for every wrong answer.
• 0 marks for not attempting the question.

Examples:

```Input:  N = 5
Answer key =  {1, 2, 1, 3, 1}
Student answer = {1, 3, 1, 0, 2}
Output: 4
(Only 1 and 3 questions are correctly marked and 2 and 5 are
marked wrong and 4 is not attempt so, (2 * 3) + (2 * -1) = 4)

Input:  N = 5
Answer key =     {1, 2, 3, 4, 1}
Student answer = {1, 2, 3, 4, 0}
Output: 12
(1, 2, 3, 4 questions are correctly marked and 5 is not attempt
so, (4 * 3) = 12)```

Approach:

2. If the value at current index of Student_answer[] = 0 then that question is not attempted.
3. Else If the value at current index is equal to the value at corresponding index in Answer_key[] then increment the count of positive answers.
4. Else increment the count of negative answers.
5. Print the total marks by calculating positive marks and negative marks.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ implementation of above approach``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function that calculates marks.``int` `markingScheme(``int` `N, ``int` `answerKey[], ``int` `studentAnswer[])``{``    ``int` `positive = 0, negative = 0, notattempt = 0;` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < N; i++) {` `        ``// for not attempt score + 0``        ``if` `(studentAnswer[i] == 0)``            ``notattempt++;` `        ``// for each correct answer score + 3``        ``else` `if` `(answerKey[i] == studentAnswer[i])``            ``positive++;` `        ``// for each wrong answer score - 1``        ``else` `if` `(answerKey[i] != studentAnswer[i])``            ``negative++;``    ``}` `    ``// calculate total marks``    ``return` `(positive * 3) + (negative * -1);``}` `// Driver code``int` `main()``{``    ``int` `answerKey[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 1 };``    ``int` `studentAnswer[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 0 };   ``    ``int` `N = ``sizeof``(answerKey)/``sizeof``(answerKey);``    ``cout << markingScheme(N, answerKey, studentAnswer);` `    ``return` `0;``}`
