The normalisation process is based on the percentile score of the candidates to ensure that no candidate is being benefited or disadvantaged due to the difficulty level of the UC NET 2020. It creates an equal balance and produces a more authentic form of result for the candidates purely created on the basis of the distribution of questions and marks among all sessions of examination and the performance of the test-takers in the same.

There are three major steps that help in the functioning of the normalisation process. These include -

  • Distribution of the Examinees in Two Shifts

  • Preparation of Result for Each Session

  • Compilation of NTA score and Preparation of Result
