Let us first begin with understanding what marks normalization actually is. Well, it is a statistical technique that takes into account any differences in the degree of difficulty of the question papers across different shifts of the same exam. Direct score comparison may not be fair because the complexity of the questions between shifts can change. Thus, normalization resolves this problem by bringing the scores into parity, allowing for a more fair assessment of candidates.
Thus, back in 2019, the Staff Selection Commission published the formula in Notice No.1-1/2018-P&P-I dated 07-02-2019, which is being followed eversince. Subsequently, these normalized scores are utilized to determine the final merit and cut-off marks.
