      CategoryCTET Cutoff (marks)
      OBC/ SC/ ST82.5

      CTET 2024 Marks Normalization

      The normalisation technique will be used to determine CTET exam scores. The candidates who took the CTET 2024 exam have been updated by the Central Board of Secondary Education. The cutoff scores rely on a few different things. The CBSE will perform the normalisation on several scales.

      By using a balanced set of criteria to evaluate the applicants, the CTET normalisation procedure will guarantee that the results of the CTET are fair. For instance, it's likely that Candidate A, who participated in Shift 1, considered the exam to be simpler than Candidate B, who participated in Shift 2, and who received a somewhat more challenging set of CTET question papers. This can ultimately result in Candidate B receiving lesser marks. The CBSE will cope with the variances in the difficulty level of the question papers by using the normalisation of scores in order to avoid such a situation. This will support the board's objective assessment of the candidates' performance.
