Since the question papers for any subject in different shifts are different and it is quite possible that despite all the best possible efforts of maintaining equivalence among various question papers, the difficulty level of these question papers administered in different sessions may not be the same or similar. Some of the candidates might have ended up attempting a relatively tougher set of questions when compared to other sets. The candidates who attempted the comparatively tougher examination are likely to get lower marks as compared to those who attempted the easier one; the scores of the students across shifts are not directly comparable. There is a need for normalizing the marks across shifts to make them amenable to such comparisons. A Committee headed by a Senior Professor from the Indian Statistical Institution Delhi and comprising Senior Professors from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi and t h e University of Delhi had detailed deliberations to arrive at a methodology. As already intimated in the Information Bulletin of NCET - 2022 the raw score of each candidate in each subject will be normalized using the Equi- percentile method. This is done separately for each subject for which the examination is held in multiple shifts. For each subject for which the examination is held in multiple shifts, the raw score for each candidate appearing for the subject will be converted into NTA Score (Percentile Score & Normalized Score) in the following three steps. Step 1: Convert Raw Scores into Percentile Scores. The percentiles are calculated separately for each shift. 1. Record the number of candidates who have appeared in a shift. Denote this number by N. 2. Sort all the candidates in one shift in decreasing order of their marks. 3. Note the raw marks for each candidate. Suppose this is denoted by T. Count the number of candidates in that shift whose raw scores are less than or equal to T. Denote this number by m. 4. The percentile score for this candidate is then calculated as: P = ݉ ∗ 100 ܰ Illustration: Suppose that the examination in a certain subject is held in two different shifts, S1 and S2, say. Consider six candidates A, B, C, D, E, and F out of which A, B, and C are from shift S1 and the other three are from shift S2. 65 Let the r a w m a r k s o f t h e s i x c a n d i d a t e s b e ܣݔ, ܤݔ, ܥݔ) shift S1 marks) and ܦݕ, ܨݕ) shift S2 marks). For candidates A, B, and C, the percentiles are calculated using the total marks obtained by candidates appearing in shift S1 (in the same subject) as explained above. Similarly, for candidates D, E, and F, the percentiles are calculated using the total marks obtained by candidates appearing in shift S2 (in the same subject) as explained above. Let the respective percentiles be denoted by PA, PB, PC, PD, PE, PF. The above data is summarized in the following table. The terms in red colour indicate that these are the output of this step. Shift S1 Shift S2 Candidate Raw score Percentile Candidate Raw score Percentile A PA D PD B PB E PE C PC F PF Since the calculation for percentiles in any shift depends only on the data from that shift alone, there is a separate table for each shift. Step 2: Pull the percentiles to the scale of the marks for each session to geta Normalized Score.  The data across all sessions tabulated at the end of step 1 is collatedinto a single table.  The columns for the shift-wise raw score should be kept separate.  All the records are then sorted in decreasing order of the percentiles. Illustration (Continued): In the illustrative example given above, suppose that the percentiles ofthe six candidates satisfy PE>PA>PC =PF>PB>PD Then the collated table would look as given below: Candidate Percentile RawscoreS1 RawScoreS2 E PE – A PA – C&F PC=P F B PB – D PD – Candidate C from shift S1 and candidate F from shift S2 have the same percentile. The relevant entries under “Raw Score S1” and “Raw Score S2” are the actual raw scores ܥݔ and ݕF respectively. This has the obvious interpretation that marks ܥݔ of shift S1 are equivalent to marks ܨݕ of shift S2. 66 Candidates A and B, appearing in shift S1, have a blank entry in column “Raw Score S2”, as there is no corresponding candidate having exactly the same percentile from shift S2. Similarly, Candidates D and E, appearing in shift S2, have a blank entry in column “Raw Score S1”, as there is no corresponding candidate having exactly the same percentile from shift S1.  In the remaining part of this Step 2, the blank entries in the two “Raw Score” columns are filled up using linear interpolation.  Consider a record (row) whose entry in the column “Raw Score S1” is blank. The blank will be replaced by the interpolated score X which is calculated as: Where: + 1ݔ = ܺ 1ݔ − 2ݔ 1݌ − 2݌ (1݌ − ܲ) - P is the corresponding entry in t h e “Percentile” column - x1 is the first non-blank entry BELOW X. i.e., x1 X and there is no other non-blank entry in the column between x2 and X. - p1 is the entry in the “Percentile” column corresponding to x1 from the column “Raw Score S1”. - p2 is the entry in the “Percentile” column corresponding to x2 from the column “Raw Score S1”. Note that there may be several blank entries between x1 and x2.  All the blank entries in column “Raw Score S1” can now be replaced by the interpolated values.  The blank entries in column “Raw Score S2” are also replaced using a similar procedure. Illustration (Continued): The table in the illustrative example would look like the following, where the entries in red indicate the additional output at the end of this step. Candidate Percentile Raw Score S1 Raw Score S2 E PE XE ܧݕ A PA YA C&F PC=PF ܨݕ B PB YB D PD XD ܦݕ 67 Step3: Calculation of the Normalised Score Now for each subject, there is a score assigned to each percentile value for each session. The Normalised score, Z, corresponding to a percentile value P, is calculated as: ݐݑ ..+...+, ܥݑ + ܤݑ + ܣݑ =( ݑ . . ... ... ... , ݑ , ݑ , )ݑ of Average= Z t ݐ ܥ ܤ ܣ Where ܣݑ, ܤݑ, ... ... ... . . ݐݑ denote the raw scores corresponding to the percentile P ineach of t he different sessions Illustration (Continued): The final table in the illustrative example would be as follows: Candidate Percentile Raw ScoreS1 Raw ScoreS2 Normalized Score E PE XE ܧݕ) XE + ܧݕ(/2 A PA YA (ܣݔ +YA)/2 C&F PC=PF ܨݕ) ܥݔ + ܨݕ(/2 B PB YB (ܤݔ +YB)/2 D PD XD ܦݕ) XD + ܦݕ(/2 Step-by-Step Procedure for Converting from Raw Score to NormalizedScore: - Example: Suppose a test was held in 4 phases of examinees as per detailsgiven below: - (Allocation of Days and shifts was done randomly) Session Day Shift No of Candidates Raw Score Absent Appeared Total Highest Lowest Session-1 Day-1 Shift-1 3974 28012 31986 200 -40 Session-2 Day-1 Shift-2 6189 32541 38730 194 -36 Session-3 Day-2 Shift-1 6036 41326 47362 188 -36 Session-4 Day-2 Shift-2 9074 40603 49677 200 -40 Total (Session-1 to Session-4) 25273 142482 167755 200 -40 68 i.

Bhatt et al, CURRENT SCIENCE, Vol. 118, No. 1, 10 January 2020. Note: The NTA is planning to do the NCET 2024 examination in a single shift so that the need for Normalization will not exist.

Since the question papers for any subject in different shifts are different and it is quite possible that despite all the best possible efforts of maintaining equivalence among various question papers, the difficulty level of these question papers administered in different sessions may not be the same or similar. Some of the candidates might have ended up attempting a relatively tougher set of questions when compared to other sets. The candidates who attempted the comparatively tougher examination are likely to get lower marks as compared to those who attempted the easier one; the scores of the students across shifts are not directly comparable. There is a need for normalizing the marks across shifts to make them amenable to such comparisons. A Committee headed by a Senior Professor from the Indian Statistical Institution Delhi and comprising Senior Professors from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi and t h e University of Delhi had detailed deliberations to arrive at a methodology. As already intimated in the Information Bulletin of NCET - 2022 the raw score of each candidate in each subject will be normalized using the Equi- percentile method. This is done separately for each subject for which the examination is held in multiple shifts. For each subject for which the examination is held in multiple shifts, the raw score for each candidate appearing for the subject will be converted into NTA Score (Percentile Score & Normalized Score) in the following three steps. Step 1: Convert Raw Scores into Percentile Scores. The percentiles are calculated separately for each shift. 1. Record the number of candidates who have appeared in a shift. Denote this number by N. 2. Sort all the candidates in one shift in decreasing order of their marks. 3. Note the raw marks for each candidate. Suppose this is denoted by T. Count the number of candidates in that shift whose raw scores are less than or equal to T. Denote this number by m. 4. The percentile score for this candidate is then calculated as: P = ݉ ∗ 100 ܰ Illustration: Suppose that the examination in a certain subject is held in two different shifts, S1 and S2, say. Consider six candidates A, B, C, D, E, and F out of which A, B, and C are from shift S1 and the other three are from shift S2. 65 Let the r a w m a r k s o f t h e s i x c a n d i d a t e s b e ܣݔ, ܤݔ, ܥݔ) shift S1 marks) and ܦݕ, ܨݕ) shift S2 marks). For candidates A, B, and C, the percentiles are calculated using the total marks obtained by candidates appearing in shift S1 (in the same subject) as explained above. Similarly, for candidates D, E, and F, the percentiles are calculated using the total marks obtained by candidates appearing in shift S2 (in the same subject) as explained above. Let the respective percentiles be denoted by PA, PB, PC, PD, PE, PF. The above data is summarized in the following table. The terms in red colour indicate that these are the output of this step. Shift S1 Shift S2 Candidate Raw score Percentile Candidate Raw score Percentile A PA D PD B PB E PE C PC F PF Since the calculation for percentiles in any shift depends only on the data from that shift alone, there is a separate table for each shift. Step 2: Pull the percentiles to the scale of the marks for each session to geta Normalized Score.  The data across all sessions tabulated at the end of step 1 is collatedinto a single table.  The columns for the shift-wise raw score should be kept separate.  All the records are then sorted in decreasing order of the percentiles. Illustration (Continued): In the illustrative example given above, suppose that the percentiles ofthe six candidates satisfy PE>PA>PC =PF>PB>PD Then the collated table would look as given below: Candidate Percentile RawscoreS1 RawScoreS2 E PE – A PA – C&F PC=P F B PB – D PD – Candidate C from shift S1 and candidate F from shift S2 have the same percentile. The relevant entries under “Raw Score S1” and “Raw Score S2” are the actual raw scores ܥݔ and ݕF respectively. This has the obvious interpretation that marks ܥݔ of shift S1 are equivalent to marks ܨݕ of shift S2. 66 Candidates A and B, appearing in shift S1, have a blank entry in column “Raw Score S2”, as there is no corresponding candidate having exactly the same percentile from shift S2. Similarly, Candidates D and E, appearing in shift S2, have a blank entry in column “Raw Score S1”, as there is no corresponding candidate having exactly the same percentile from shift S1.  In the remaining part of this Step 2, the blank entries in the two “Raw Score” columns are filled up using linear interpolation.  Consider a record (row) whose entry in the column “Raw Score S1” is blank. The blank will be replaced by the interpolated score X which is calculated as: Where: + 1ݔ = ܺ 1ݔ − 2ݔ 1݌ − 2݌ (1݌ − ܲ) - P is the corresponding entry in t h e “Percentile” column - x1 is the first non-blank entry BELOW X. i.e., x1 X and there is no other non-blank entry in the column between x2 and X. - p1 is the entry in the “Percentile” column corresponding to x1 from the column “Raw Score S1”. - p2 is the entry in the “Percentile” column corresponding to x2 from the column “Raw Score S1”. Note that there may be several blank entries between x1 and x2.  All the blank entries in column “Raw Score S1” can now be replaced by the interpolated values.  The blank entries in column “Raw Score S2” are also replaced using a similar procedure. Illustration (Continued): The table in the illustrative example would look like the following, where the entries in red indicate the additional output at the end of this step. Candidate Percentile Raw Score S1 Raw Score S2 E PE XE ܧݕ A PA YA C&F PC=PF ܨݕ B PB YB D PD XD ܦݕ 67 Step3: Calculation of the Normalised Score Now for each subject, there is a score assigned to each percentile value for each session. The Normalised score, Z, corresponding to a percentile value P, is calculated as: ݐݑ ..+...+, ܥݑ + ܤݑ + ܣݑ =( ݑ . . ... ... ... , ݑ , ݑ , )ݑ of Average= Z t ݐ ܥ ܤ ܣ Where ܣݑ, ܤݑ, ... ... ... . . ݐݑ denote the raw scores corresponding to the percentile P ineach of t he different sessions Illustration (Continued): The final table in the illustrative example would be as follows: Candidate Percentile Raw ScoreS1 Raw ScoreS2 Normalized Score E PE XE ܧݕ) XE + ܧݕ(/2 A PA YA (ܣݔ +YA)/2 C&F PC=PF ܨݕ) ܥݔ + ܨݕ(/2 B PB YB (ܤݔ +YB)/2 D PD XD ܦݕ) XD + ܦݕ(/2 Step-by-Step Procedure for Converting from Raw Score to NormalizedScore: - Example: Suppose a test was held in 4 phases of examinees as per detailsgiven below: - (Allocation of Days and shifts was done randomly) Session Day Shift No of Candidates Raw Score Absent Appeared Total Highest Lowest Session-1 Day-1 Shift-1 3974 28012 31986 200 -40 Session-2 Day-1 Shift-2 6189 32541 38730 194 -36 Session-3 Day-2 Shift-1 6036 41326 47362 188 -36 Session-4 Day-2 Shift-2 9074 40603 49677 200 -40 Total (Session-1 to Session-4) 25273 142482 167755 200 -40 68 i.

Bhatt et al, CURRENT SCIENCE, Vol. 118, No. 1, 10 January 2020. Note: The NTA is planning to do the NCET 2024 examination in a single shift so that the need for Normalization will not exist.

Since the question papers for any subject in different shifts are different and it is quite possible that despite all the best possible efforts of maintaining equivalence among various question papers, the difficulty level of these question papers administered in different sessions may not be the same or similar. Some of the candidates might have ended up attempting a relatively tougher set of questions when compared to other sets. The candidates who attempted the comparatively tougher examination are likely to get lower marks as compared to those who attempted the easier one; the scores of the students across shifts are not directly comparable. There is a need for normalizing the marks across shifts to make them amenable to such comparisons. A Committee headed by a Senior Professor from the Indian Statistical Institution Delhi and comprising Senior Professors from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi and t h e University of Delhi had detailed deliberations to arrive at a methodology. As already intimated in the Information Bulletin of NCET - 2022 the raw score of each candidate in each subject will be normalized using the Equi- percentile method. This is done separately for each subject for which the examination is held in multiple shifts. For each subject for which the examination is held in multiple shifts, the raw score for each candidate appearing for the subject will be converted into NTA Score (Percentile Score & Normalized Score) in the following three steps. Step 1: Convert Raw Scores into Percentile Scores. The percentiles are calculated separately for each shift. 1. Record the number of candidates who have appeared in a shift. Denote this number by N. 2. Sort all the candidates in one shift in decreasing order of their marks. 3. Note the raw marks for each candidate. Suppose this is denoted by T. Count the number of candidates in that shift whose raw scores are less than or equal to T. Denote this number by m. 4. The percentile score for this candidate is then calculated as: P = ݉ ∗ 100 ܰ Illustration: Suppose that the examination in a certain subject is held in two different shifts, S1 and S2, say. Consider six candidates A, B, C, D, E, and F out of which A, B, and C are from shift S1 and the other three are from shift S2. 65 Let the r a w m a r k s o f t h e s i x c a n d i d a t e s b e ܣݔ, ܤݔ, ܥݔ) shift S1 marks) and ܦݕ, ܨݕ) shift S2 marks). For candidates A, B, and C, the percentiles are calculated using the total marks obtained by candidates appearing in shift S1 (in the same subject) as explained above. Similarly, for candidates D, E, and F, the percentiles are calculated using the total marks obtained by candidates appearing in shift S2 (in the same subject) as explained above. Let the respective percentiles be denoted by PA, PB, PC, PD, PE, PF. The above data is summarized in the following table. The terms in red colour indicate that these are the output of this step. Shift S1 Shift S2 Candidate Raw score Percentile Candidate Raw score Percentile A PA D PD B PB E PE C PC F PF Since the calculation for percentiles in any shift depends only on the data from that shift alone, there is a separate table for each shift. Step 2: Pull the percentiles to the scale of the marks for each session to geta Normalized Score.  The data across all sessions tabulated at the end of step 1 is collatedinto a single table.  The columns for the shift-wise raw score should be kept separate.  All the records are then sorted in decreasing order of the percentiles. Illustration (Continued): In the illustrative example given above, suppose that the percentiles ofthe six candidates satisfy PE>PA>PC =PF>PB>PD Then the collated table would look as given below: Candidate Percentile RawscoreS1 RawScoreS2 E PE – A PA – C&F PC=P F B PB – D PD – Candidate C from shift S1 and candidate F from shift S2 have the same percentile. The relevant entries under “Raw Score S1” and “Raw Score S2” are the actual raw scores ܥݔ and ݕF respectively. This has the obvious interpretation that marks ܥݔ of shift S1 are equivalent to marks ܨݕ of shift S2. 66 Candidates A and B, appearing in shift S1, have a blank entry in column “Raw Score S2”, as there is no corresponding candidate having exactly the same percentile from shift S2. Similarly, Candidates D and E, appearing in shift S2, have a blank entry in column “Raw Score S1”, as there is no corresponding candidate having exactly the same percentile from shift S1.  In the remaining part of this Step 2, the blank entries in the two “Raw Score” columns are filled up using linear interpolation.  Consider a record (row) whose entry in the column “Raw Score S1” is blank. The blank will be replaced by the interpolated score X which is calculated as: Where: + 1ݔ = ܺ 1ݔ − 2ݔ 1݌ − 2݌ (1݌ − ܲ) - P is the corresponding entry in t h e “Percentile” column - x1 is the first non-blank entry BELOW X. i.e., x1 X and there is no other non-blank entry in the column between x2 and X. - p1 is the entry in the “Percentile” column corresponding to x1 from the column “Raw Score S1”. - p2 is the entry in the “Percentile” column corresponding to x2 from the column “Raw Score S1”. Note that there may be several blank entries between x1 and x2.  All the blank entries in column “Raw Score S1” can now be replaced by the interpolated values.  The blank entries in column “Raw Score S2” are also replaced using a similar procedure. Illustration (Continued): The table in the illustrative example would look like the following, where the entries in red indicate the additional output at the end of this step. Candidate Percentile Raw Score S1 Raw Score S2 E PE XE ܧݕ A PA YA C&F PC=PF ܨݕ B PB YB D PD XD ܦݕ 67 Step3: Calculation of the Normalised Score Now for each subject, there is a score assigned to each percentile value for each session. The Normalised score, Z, corresponding to a percentile value P, is calculated as: ݐݑ ..+...+, ܥݑ + ܤݑ + ܣݑ =( ݑ . . ... ... ... , ݑ , ݑ , )ݑ of Average= Z t ݐ ܥ ܤ ܣ Where ܣݑ, ܤݑ, ... ... ... . . ݐݑ denote the raw scores corresponding to the percentile P ineach of t he different sessions Illustration (Continued): The final table in the illustrative example would be as follows: Candidate Percentile Raw ScoreS1 Raw ScoreS2 Normalized Score E PE XE ܧݕ) XE + ܧݕ(/2 A PA YA (ܣݔ +YA)/2 C&F PC=PF ܨݕ) ܥݔ + ܨݕ(/2 B PB YB (ܤݔ +YB)/2 D PD XD ܦݕ) XD + ܦݕ(/2 Step-by-Step Procedure for Converting from Raw Score to NormalizedScore: - Example: Suppose a test was held in 4 phases of examinees as per detailsgiven below: - (Allocation of Days and shifts was done randomly) Session Day Shift No of Candidates Raw Score Absent Appeared Total Highest Lowest Session-1 Day-1 Shift-1 3974 28012 31986 200 -40 Session-2 Day-1 Shift-2 6189 32541 38730 194 -36 Session-3 Day-2 Shift-1 6036 41326 47362 188 -36 Session-4 Day-2 Shift-2 9074 40603 49677 200 -40 Total (Session-1 to Session-4) 25273 142482 167755 200 -40 68 i.

Bhatt et al, CURRENT SCIENCE, Vol. 118, No. 1, 10 January 2020. Note: The NTA is planning to do the NCET 2024 examination in a single shift so that the need for Normalization will not exist.
