Normalization is a very important process in the AP ICET exam, which ensures that no candidate is benefitted or disadvantaged from receiving an easier or a tougher question paper. Check the Normalization Process of AP ICET 2021 exam here, which will be used to calculate the final score of candidates.

AP ICET Normalization Process 2021

Now, that the AP The AP ICET exam is conducted in a total of 4 sessions with shifts on a day. Each candidate is allowed to appear for a single session only. Even though both sessions are conducted based upon the same AP ICET exam pattern and have questions from the same syllabus of the AP ICET exam, there are chances that there may be a difference between the difficulty level of each exam.

To ensure that this discrepancy does not compromise the fairness of AP ICET final results and percentile score, a normalization process will be used. SVU has released the AP ICET normalization process in the instruction booklet of the AP ICET exam. Candidates appearing for the exam can take note of the AP ICET normalization process given in this article to have an idea of how the AP ICET Results are calculated.

Importance of Normalization in AP ICET 2021

Normalization is a very important process in the calculation of the results of the AP ICET exam. Normalization ensures that students who have appeared for a paper with easier difficulty do not get an advantage over those who have attempted a comparatively more difficult question paper.

Different sets of question papers are prepared for each session of the AP ICET exam and even though SVU tries to maintain the same level of difficulty across all of the question papers, there are chances that some students have to face a more difficult question paper than the others. Here, the normalization process is applied to ensure that the final results are fair so that no student gets a benefit or disadvantage because of this discrepancy.

After normalization, the marks of candidates who have attempted an easier question paper may be decreased and the marks of those who have appeared for a tougher question paper may be given a slight increase. Thus, the performance of each student is measured accurately and the scores can give the correct comparison of the performance of each candidate.

Normalization is a very common process in exams and it is also used for the same purpose by many other popular entrance examinations such as the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE), Common Admission Test (CAT), Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) etc.

The normalization process of various entrance exams in India is given below.

AP ICET Normalization Process 2021

The formula given below is used for calculating the normalized marks of a candidate in the AP ICET exam.

Normalized Marks = GMS + [ { (TopAverageGlobal - GMS) / (TopAverageSession - SMS) } x (Marks Obtained by Candidate - SMS) ]

The normalization process of the AP ICET exam involves the calculation of the following parameters.

  • SMS = Average Score of the Candidate's Session + Standard Deviation of the Candidate's Session

  • GMS = Average Score of All Sessions + Standard Deviation of All Sessions

  • TopAverageSession = Average Marks of the Top 0.1% candidates of a session

  • TopAverageGlobal = Average Marks of the top 0.1% candidates across both sessions

It is also important to note that for candidates for whom there is no qualifying cutoff in the AP ICET exam (i.e. SC / ST category candidates) if the final marks after normalization go below zero, they are awarded zero marks in the exam. Normalization is a very important step in the calculation of AP ICET Results. Candidates are ranked on the basis of their normalized scores only.

Through normalization, the exam conducting body ensures that each candidate gets a fair chance at proving their potential. After normalization, MBA colleges in Andhra Pradesh and MCA colleges in Andhra Pradesh that accept AP ICET scores for admission can get an accurate idea of the performance of the candidates and conduct the admission process accordingly.
