What is normalization? 

  • Normalization is a usual method of score correction in most of the bank exams conducted. Due to the difficult level change in various shifts, the normalization process is done by the IBPS. It is to evaluate the performance of candidates based on similar exam parameters, especially the difficulty level of the exam.
  • The exams conducted by the IBPS will take place in various shifts in many centers across the country. The level of the question paper varies for each slot. The questions may be easier in one slot and comparatively difficult in the other.
  • For that purpose of doing a fair evaluation, the IBPS normalizes the scores obtained by the candidates in different shifts of the exam. So using the normalization process the difficulty level of exam is adjusted for all the exam shifts.
  • For example, assume in a shift, 50 candidates gave their exam and the paper is difficult. In that shift percentile rank of each candidate is calculated using the formula given below;

normalization formula

  • Also in other shift where the paper is easier, the equi-percentile rank of each candidate are obtained using the formula. Thus after normalization of scores obtained by each candidate, a cut off is fixed and candidates are selected based on that.
  • So candidates don’t worry if your paper is tougher than that compared to other sessions, as the normalization process will adjust the difficulty level.
