SSC CPO 2023 Marking Scheme
As we are aware, the CPO recruitment examination 2023 consists of two papers, both of which are objective multiple-choice questions. These questions will be presented in both Hindi and English. Moreover, they are presented within Parts I, II, and III of Paper 1. Additionally, there will be a provision for negative marking. One-third of the marks allotted to a question will be deducted for each incorrect answer in both Papers 1 and 2.
SSC CPO 2023 Marks Normalization
How about we begin with understanding what marks normalization is? Well, it is a statistical method that accounts for any disparities in the difficulty levels of question papers across multiple shifts of the same exam. Since different shifts can have varying levels of complexity in their questions, direct score comparison might not be equitable. Thus, normalization addresses this issue by equalizing the scores, enabling a more just evaluation of candidates.
In addition, SSC published the formula that will be followed in Notice No.1-1/2018-P&P-I dated 07-02-2019. Subsequently, these normalized scores are utilized to determine the final merit and cut off marks. Further, the National Cadet Corps (NCC) certificate holders (as on 15.08.2023) will be given bonus marks in Paper 1 and Paper 2 which will be added to the normalized scores of such candidates.
