The corrected scores obtained by the candidates in each of the sessions will be normalized using equi-percentile method. Corrected score is calculated by the number of correct answers given by candidate with a penalty of 0.25 marks for each wrong answer. So if a candidate scores 30 correct answers and 8 wrong answers, then the total score of the candidate will be 28 ( 30 - 2 ).
IBPS PO exam is held in different states, multiple venues, morning/evening shifts. Each of the shifts having different set of question paper online, although the exam pattern and syllabus is same. Since the question papers are different, the level of question paper varies. Therefore, it is unfair for the candidates to judge them on different parameters as there is no equality in papers for every candidates.
Due to variation in difficulty level, IBPS normalize the score to take care the difference in level of questions. No candidates should feel a loss in attempting a session which had a tougher set of paper. By using equi-percentile method IBPS makes sure no biasing takes place between candidates.
IBPS PO/MT examinations will be conducted in morning and evening shifts on the defined dates. The answer keys of IBPS PO will be published in 4 different sets- Set A, Set B, Set C and Set D on the official website of IBPS.
