Take a look at the controversy that surrounds the SSC CGL 2017 Exam Tier 1 this year.

SSC CGL 2017 Preliminary Exam Result | Calculate Normalised Score, Say Students

In protest of the same concern, students who took the SSC CGL 2017 preliminary exam now have demanded the calculation of ‘normalised score’ as a part of the SSC CGL 2017 Exam result this year. The big question that arises is what is the normalised score and how is it really going to make things balanced in the SSC CGL 2017 preliminary Exam that is claimed as ‘biased’ by the students for those who took the test after Aug 16, 2017.

Well, normalising a score is a method of balancing out the scores secured by individuals in different sets of the same exam. For instance, SSC CGL 2017 preliminary Exam which was conducted in multiple shifts for over 20 days can never justify the SSC CGL 2017 preliminary Exam paper to be of the same difficulty level. In competitive recruitment exams like these, normalising the score by setting a base same using a simple formula commonly applied to all the scores of the candidates to come up with a single score and then comparing makes sense. This is what is called as the normalised score or the Z-score calculation which shall bring all the shifts under one umbrella of judgement.

Let us hope and pray that whatever the authorities or the conducting body of SSC CGL 2017 preliminary Exam decides, no candidate feels like a child of a lesser God.
