    Normalisation of Scores

    Normalisation is a process for ensuring that students are neither advantaged nor disadvantaged by the difficulty of exams that they do for the Boards. When an exam is conducted in multiple slots, then we know there can be variations in the difficulty level of the exams. To adjust this variations in difficulty level at different slots, normalization is done. Conducting exams in different slots means, there will be a variation in difficulty level of the exams. To resolve this issue, scores are normalized.

    Under normalization candidates have two types of marks:

    • Raw marks: These are the actual marks obtained by the candidate.
    • Normalised marks: These are the modified marks offered to a candidate considering the relative difficulty of his slot compared to the difficulty of other slots of his discipline.

    If it is calculated that the slot of a candidate is relatively easy when compared to the other slot of his discipline then his normalized marks will be less than his actual marks.

    But if it is calculated that the slot of the candidate is relatively difficult than other slot of his discipline then his normalized marks will be more than his actual marks.

    Normalisation Formula

    One of the factor used in the calculating the normalization by its formula is percentile score

    Percentile score of a candidate in a board or CEED will tell us what percentage of candidates have scored below that candidate in that Board or CEED.

    A Percentile score is the value of below which a certain percent of observations falls.

    For example, the 30th percentile is the value (or score) below which 30 percent of the observations will be found.

    The Percentile of a Candidate will be calculated as :
