Normalisation of the Marks for Multi-Session Papers


Normalisation of the Marks for Multi-Session Papers


Whenever CBT is conducted in multiple sessions for the same syllabus, the raw marks obtained by the candidates in different sessions will be converted to normalized marks. The raw marks for single session paper and normalized marks for the multi-session paper will be used for computing Merit Index, which is a common benchmark for generating merit for candidates from different Exam Groups. 

In 1st Stage CBT and for some Exam Groups in 2nd Stage CBT, the examination may be conducted in multi-sessions. Hence, for these multisession papers, a suitable normalization is applied to take into account any variation in the difficulty levels of the question papers across different sessions. 

The formula for calculating the normalized marks for the multi-session papers is detailed below:

CALCULATION OF MERIT INDEX FOR ALL PAPERS

In order to generate a common merit list comprising of candidates who gave examination from different Exam Groups, but eligible for a common post, merit index will be computed. For all papers for which there is only one session, actual marks obtained by the candidates will be used for calculating Merit Index, while for papers in multi-session, normalized marks will be calculated corresponding to the raw marks obtained by a candidate and the Merit Index will be calculated based on the normalized marks.
