The normalization procedure is based on a simple formula and depends on few parameters. The exam organizing committee arrives at the following formula for calculating the normalized marks for the multi-session papers.
Normalization mark of jth aspirant in the ith session M̂ij
Mij: actual marks secured by the jth aspirant in the ith sessions
M̅gt: average marks of the top 0.1% of the aspirants considering all sessions
Mgq: sum of mean and standard deviation marks of the aspirants in the paper considering all sessions
M̅ti: average marks of the top 0.1% of the aspirants in the ith sessions
Miq: sum of the mean marks and standard deviation of the ith session
Once the responses are checked and assessed, the normalized marks of an aspirant will be calculated corresponding to the actual marks secured by the aspirant in the examination and the Scorecard will be devised based on the normalized marks.
The process to calculate the score based on the marking scheme of the exam is given below:
|Sections||Calculation of score|
|GAT||Total number of accurate responses (x 4)– Total number of inaccurate responses (x 0.33)|
|Mathematics||Total number of accurate responses (x 2.5) Total number of inaccurate responses (x 0.33)|
Aspirants after verifying the accurate and inaccurate responses can calculate their estimated score of the exam. The process to calculate the score is given below.
|Total number of questions in Mathematics||120|
|Marks allotted per questions||2.5|
|Negative marks for inaccurate response||0.33|
|Total marks||Number of accurate responses x 2.5– Number of inaccurate responses x 0.33|
For example in Mathematics:
If the aspirant attempts 90 questions and 20 are inaccurate the according to the formula:
Aspirant will score: 90*2.5 – 20*0.33 = 218.4
