SSC CGL Normalisation

Many students who appeared in the Staff Selection Commission (CGL) examination, 2017 (Tier-I) are demanding that scores of the test to be normalized. They claim that the difficulty level was higher in some tests .A total of 15,43,962 candidates appeared in this recruitment exam which was conducted in 43 batches across the country from august 5 to 23 august.

What is Normalization ?

The examination conducting body makes a simple formula according to the fixed parameters like average marks getting by student, accuracy, difficulty level etc. to calculate scores. Once the answers are checked, the normalized marks of a candidate are calculated corresponding to the actual marks secured by the candidate.

Why Normalization ?

  1. Level of exam must be same; it should not vary from shift to shift.
  2. Many candidates preparing for SSC CGL one mark can make difference in the final list.
  3. One student got good marks in easy shift and other got low marks in difficult shift. There must be equality to all aspirants.

There is a good news for all the affected students due to the absence of Normalisation in SSC Exams. We have received vital information from the court proceeding of the case RAJU KUMAR & OTHERS -V/S- STAFF SELECTION COMMISSION, CENTRAL ADMINISTRATIVE TRIBUNAL PRINCIPAL BENCH, NEW DELHI.
