Normalization

Normalization refers to adjusting measured on different scales to a Nationally common scale. It is basically done to evaluate the performance of all the candidates on the basis of similar exam parameters. It aims to adjust the difficulty level across different shifts of the exam.
 
The exam is conducted in different shifts with varied difficulty levels and the marks scored by candidates will always be different. SSC came up with a solution named Normalization to tackle this problem. In other words, Normalization refers to adjusting values measured on different scales to a nationally common scale. It is basically done to evaluate the performance of all the candidates on the basis of similar exam parameters. It aims to adjust the difficulty level across different shifts of the exam.
 
Normalization is going to affect each and every candidate appearing for SSC CGL exam. But this is not something to worry about. Rather you must focus on exam preparation than thinking of the resulting process
 
Normalization is good and beneficial as:
  • It ensures fair calculation and evaluation of marks
  • Variation in difficulty level across different shifts won’t affect your success in the exam.

Preparation Tips

 
Know the pattern & SSC CGL Syllabus with Weightage of each topic:-
 
This step is very important before you start the preparation for any exam. It gives you a basic idea about the exam and puts you on the right track for your preparation.
 
Your Current Preparation Level:-
 
Once you know the pattern and syllabus, you need to know where you stand in terms of preparation. This is a very crucial step because it will help you do the reality check.
 
This exercise will help you assess the following:
(I) The difference between your current preparation level and the level that is required to pass the exam.
(II) If you need to work on certain topics from scratch.
(III) If you are taking too much time in solving questions.
 
Know the Previous Years Cut Off:-
 
In these exams, the cut-off is more important than the actual score. This is because cutoffs are the first hurdle that you need to cross to reach your goal. You need to reach to the bare minimum score before you can even start dreaming of maximizing your score. Hence, once you have appeared for a few mock tests, go through the cut-offs of these exams and figure out the difference that you need to cover. You should at least be familiar with SSC CGL Cut Off 2016 & 2015. 
 
Knowing the SSC CGL Syllabus & Difficulty Level:-
 
This is the most crucial step. This analysis will help you make an informed decision. This is because this is the part of the plan where you plot to get the maximum output in the minimum time.
 
Time Left for SSC CGL Preparation 2018:-
 
Keep in mind the time left for SSC CGL exams. Your decision will also depend upon the time factor as you should not make plans that are unachievable. Time plays an important role. Because at the end of the day, if you run out of time, even the best-laid plans will come to waste.
