SSC Normalization Process Official Notification
Here is the official notification released by the board regarding the Normalization Process. Candidates are suggested to take a look at the notification PDF shown below.
Nowadays, we see most of the examinations are being conducted in multiple shifts and it is not possible to set the same difficulty level for the exam. Due to which the marks scored by the candidates in different shifts vary. Now, the challenge is how to resolve this problem? That’s when the Normalization Process was introduced.
What is SSC Normalization Process?
- Normalization is a process to adjust values measured on different scales to a notionally common scale.
- It is done to evaluate the performance of the candidates on the basis of similar exam parameters and aims to adjust the difficulty level across different shifts of the exam.
- For instance, SSC conducted Tier 1 in more than 40 shifts last year. Many students from different shifts complained about unevenness in the difficulty level of the questions and it was unfair to evaluate the results as it was not candidate fault to lie in that particular shift.
- For example, the average marks scored by the students in the first shift were 110 out of 200 but students who wrote the exam in the second shift were able to score 125 out of 200.
- To overcome this situation, SSC is following the Normalization Process.
- This time, SSC has announced in the official notification that marks scored by students in Tier 1 and Tier 2 will be normalized.
- Normalization process uses a formula for evaluating the score. But it depends on the SSC board which formula they are using.
- Marks scored by the candidates and the actual number of valid questions in the various shifts are taken as input.
Hence, from now on candidates need not worry about easy or difficult shifts. Just concentrate on studying well and score more. Candidates can enhance their preparation with a wide range of SSC Preparation Books available online.
