Speculated to be caused by normalisation issue, the delayed examination schedule of SSC CGLE Tier-2 is the talk of town lately. The Tier-I level of the Combined Graduate Level Examination conducted by SSC in August 2017 as a preliminary exam to screen in candidates in order to make them eligible for the tier-II level, the same is done via a preparation of merit list of qualified candidates declared in the form of SSC CGLE result of Tier-I.

Th candidates as a consequence of differential level of examinations’ difficulty level set by the Staff Selection Commission while conducting the test of SSC CGL Tier-1 level raised an issue of calculating their marks before declaration of its result after normalising the scores. Normalisation of marks or the Z-score calculation as demanded by the students who appeared for the Tier-1 exam remained unaddressed by the authorities falling on their deaf ears. The normalisation decision is impending with the court still which is rumoured to be out soon in January 2018.
