Through normalization, the difficulty level of the exam is adjusted thereby providing an unbiased score. The scores are allotted between 100 to 0 for each session of the exam. Through Normalization, raw scores are converted to Percentile.
Finally, the raw scores are merged with the percentile for both the sessions to calculate the final result.
After the above process, a separate cut off list is prepared for the students eligible for JRF. Below is the formula to calculate the score and thus the eligibility.
The merit list will contain all the shortlisted candidates who have cleared the minimum cut off marks. Top 15% of candidates from the merit list will be selected for the Assistant Professor only from each category and subject.
