Normalization Process for CAT 2022

CAT normalization is a process in which the authorities guarantee that all the candidates are evaluated on a common basis. They make sure of honesty and integrity in the performance of the student in the sessions, so through the CAT normalization process their score will come as an individual percentile. Normally, the scores are normalized multiple times, as per the official information by the CAT Authorities.

The CAT percentiles are obtained by converting the normalization score. On this basis of the CAT percentiles, the candidates will be selected for the further round.

Calculation Of Normalization Process for CAT 2022

The below mentioned are the steps to calculate the normalization process of CAT 2022. For clarity, let us choose the VARC section as an example. 

Step 1: The mean and standard deviation from the raw scores in the VARC section, for all candidates who will appear in the morning shift, will be calculated. Let the mean of morning shift be M1 and standard deviation (SD) of morning shift be S1.

  •  G1 = M1 + S1

Step 2: Similarly, calculation of mean and the standard deviation from the raw scores in the VARC Section for all candidates who will appear in the afternoon shift will be done. Let the mean for afternoon shift be M2 and standard deviation (SD) for afternoon shift be S2.

  • G2 = M2 + S2

Step 3: The mean and the standard deviation from the raw scores in the VARC Section for all candidates who will appear in the evening shift will also be calculated. Let the mean for evening shift be M3 and standard deviation (SD) for evening shift be S3.

  • G3 = M3 + S3

Step 4: Then, the mean and the standard deviation  of the raw scores in the VARC section for all candidates who will appear in morning, afternoon and evening shifts will be calculated. Let Mean be M and Standard Deviation (SD) be S

  • G = M + S

Step 5: Now, the mean raw score in the VARC section of the top 0.1% students who are appearing in the morning shift shall be calculated.

Step 6: Calculate the mean raw score in the VARC section of the top 0.1% students who are appearing in the afternoon shift.

Step 7: Similarly, the mean raw score in the VARC section of the top 0.1% students who are appearing in the evening shift shall be calculated.

For the rest of the section, the same method shall be used. Therefore, the scaled score is equal to the grand total scaled score of VARC, DILR, and QA sections.
