CAT 2018 Result Equating Process

CAT 2018 was conducted in two shifts this year. Also, candidates saw the difference in the difficulty level across the two slots. So, there are high chances that the equating process will take place in the CAT 2018 Result. The normalization process conducts to ensure neutrality, equity, and fairness.

Also, in the official notification, the normalization process adjusts and scale scores according to the location differences, score distribution, difficulty level or any other norm. The normalization takes place to scale both sectional and overall marks. Only on the basis of the scaled scores, the percentile calculation is done.

CAT 2018 Scaled Score/ Normalization Process

What is Normalization?

The process of Normalization follows the practice for comparing test takers scores across multiple Forms. For example, the average of marks for the shift 1 is 110 and for shift 2 is 120. Suggesting that the difficulty level of the second slot was high. So, the marks of each student of shift 1 will be multiplied by (120/110) 1.09. Which eventually increase the marks of students of shift 1.

Sometimes candidates do get marks lower than the expected, last year a student tweeted that he got the raw score of 120 but his scaled score was 67. An important to note, IIM releases neither the exact normalization process or actual scores. In so far, it is only known that the process is similar to the process followed by other national level exam conducted in India, like the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE).
