Normalization procedure

While preparing the CTET result, the CBSE follows a normalization procedure. This is mainly done since the CTET exam was conducted in multiple shifts, for a period of one month. A normalization formula is used which takes into account the difficulty level of the question papers, the number of candidates who attempted each paper and their respective scores. Using this formula, the scaled scores for all the candidates are prepared.
