Enter the total marks obtained and the time taken to complete the test into the calculator to determine the marks per minute. This calculator helps to evaluate the rate at which a student can score marks in a given time frame.

Marks Per Minute Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the marks per minute.

M = T / t


  • M is the marks per minute
  • T is the total marks obtained
  • t is the time taken to complete the test (minutes)

To calculate the marks per minute, divide the total marks obtained by the time taken to complete the test in minutes.

What is Marks Per Minute?

Marks per minute is a measure of a student’s efficiency during a test or exam. It indicates the average number of marks a student can earn per minute of the test. This metric can be useful for students to gauge their performance and for educators to assess the difficulty of a test or the effectiveness of teaching methods.

How to Calculate Marks Per Minute?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Marks Per Minute.

  1. First, determine the total marks obtained (T).
  2. Next, determine the time taken to complete the test (t) in minutes.
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = M = T / t.
  4. Finally, calculate the Marks Per Minute (M).
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Total marks obtained (T) = 80 marks

Time taken to complete the test (t) = 60 minutes
