Candidates will be required to type a minimum of 300 words or 1500 strokes in English to attain a speed of 30 words per minute OR 250 words or 1250 strokes in Hindi for the prescribed speed of 25 words per minute within the prescribed duration of 10 minutes. 5% mistakes of the total words typed may be ignored and thereafter for every mistake corresponding number of words will be deducted from the total words typed for arriving at the final speed according to the illustration/formula given herein below: -

For example: For a Typing Test of 10 minutes 5% mistakes of total words typed are ignored. 
Total strokes typed = 1600 
Words typed = 1600/5 = 320 (one word is equal to 5 strokes) 
Total mistakes = 19 
Ignorable mistakes = 5% of 320 = 16 
Net mistakes for evaluation = 19-16 = 3 
Mistakes to be deducted for arriving at net words typed = 320 - (3x10) = 290 
As per formula : [No. of total words typed – (No. of net mistakes x 10) ] / Time of test 
Speed per minute = 290/10 = 29
