Normalization of KVPY 2018 Scores

Normalization of scores is a process to make sure that the candidates are neither advantaged or disadvantaged by the variations in the difficulty levels of the exam. This variation usually occurs when the exam is conducted in different slots.

In order to avoid any discretion in calculating the result of the candidates, the normalization process is used. One factor that is used in normalization is the percentile of the candidate. The percentile score of a candidate in a board or KVPY will tell us what percentage of candidates have scored below that candidate in KVPY. A Percentile score is a value of below which a certain percent of observations falls. For example, the 30th percentile is the value below which 30 percent of the observations will be found.

The percentile is calculated as:

100 x Number of candidates in the ‘group’ with aggregate marks less than the candidate/ Total Number of candidates in the group.

KVPY 2018 Merit list

Based on the marks obtained by the candidate, IISc will also publish a merit list in the descending order of marks. Candidates whose names appear on the list will be called for the interview round that will be held in the month of January 2019. The merit list will be published category – wise, with the names and application number of the candidate. Only those candidates who qualify the KVPY 2018 test will find their names on the merit list.
