CUET UG 2023 Result: Normalisation Process and Score Calculation
The announcement of CUET UG 2023 exam results is expected to take place this week. The National Testing Agency (NTA), responsible for conducting the exam, employs a normalisation process to allocate marks for this and other competitive exams it administers.
Understanding the Normalisation Process:
Given that the CUET UG exam is conducted on different dates and in multiple shifts across various exam centers, each subject utilizes different sets of question papers. This presents a challenge in maintaining a consistent level of difficulty for all exams. To address this, the NTA employs a normalisation method to ensure that candidates are neither unfairly advantaged nor disadvantaged due to these variations.
Calculation of Normalised Scores:
To compute the normalised score for CUET UG candidates, three variables are taken into consideration: the candidate’s raw score (A), the total number of candidates who scored equal to or lower than their raw score (B), and the total number of candidates in the specific session (C).
Example: Let’s consider a scenario where a candidate scores 121 marks in a session with 41,326 other candidates. If their score surpasses that of 37,244 candidates in that session, their normalised percentile score would be 37,244/41,326 X 100, resulting in a percentile of 90.1224411. Percentile scores are calculated up to seven decimal places.
Calculation of Normalised Raw Score:
The NTA arranges candidates in descending order based on their percentile scores and associates their raw marks with the respective percentiles. Using linear interpolation, an additional metric called “interpolated mark” is derived for each candidate. This process assumes that every student took the same paper twice. The actual raw marks are then divided by the interpolated marks, resulting in the calculation of normalised marks.
The normalisation process ensures fairness in evaluating candidates’ performance, accounting for variations in difficulty levels across multiple sessions of the CUET UG exam.
