Question How do they evaluate the cases?

Is passing depends to pass every case or the total passed cases should exceeds the failed ones? (I am asking about 10 cases assuming 2 would not be considered)..or there is point system of each case & I have to get at least number of points...or ?

It's not clear how do they evaluate your case performances, but it's generally agreed that two fatal mistakes in 2 counted cases is enough to fail you the whole test.

What you might think as a fatal mistake may not be actually fatal, most of the mistakes listed here
I have these mistakes in my CS exam! are not fatal mistakes.

Examples of fatal mistakes:
  • Going into fighting/argument with the SP
  • Hurting or insulting the SP
  • Having so bad English that the SP cannot understand you
