IBPS PO Normalisation of Scores:

According to IBPS,

  • The corrected scores obtained by each candidate in different sessions are normalized using the equi-percentile method.
  • Scores up to two decimal points are taken for calculation purposes.

What is normalization? 

  • Normalization is a common phenomenon in most of the bank exams conducted today. It is a process by which IBPS evaluates the performance of candidates based on similar exam parameters, especially the difficulty level of the exam.
  • The exams conducted by the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection often take place in various shifts in many centers across the country. The sectional and overall level, as well as the topics, vary for each slot. The questions may be easier in one slot and comparatively difficult in the other.
  • So evaluation should be fair. For that purpose, 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 across various shifts is adjusted.
  • 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 difficulty level is hard, 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.
