The normalisation of marks is done for ME/ M. Tech/ M. Arch / M. Plan programmes only. The question paper of the entrance test is divided into three parts – Part I (Engineering Mathematics), Part II (Basic Engineering & Sciences) and Part III (meant for different disciplines). Part I and II are common for all programmes while Part III is different. As a result, the mean mark and standard deviation vary as per disciplines in Part III. To bring uniformity in variations, marks of candidates are normalized. The formula for calculating the normalized marks is given below.

The formula for normalisation of marks: 

N= 40+(10/s) X (R-M)


N= Normalised marks

R= Raw marks
