Normalisation of marks FOR M.E./ M.Tech. / M.Arch. / M.Plan.

The question paper for M.E./ M.Tech. / M.Arch. / M.Plan. has 2 common parts namely:- Part – I for Engineering Mathematics and Part – II for Basic Engg. & Sciences and other than that, there is Part – III which is meant for different disciplines. The marks are normalised considering three factors:-

(i) the mean mark (m)

(ii) the standard deviation (s) and

(iii) raw marks (r)

Note- the raw marks may vary from discipline to discipline under Part – III.

Marks are then normalised using the formula:-

Normalised marks = 40 + (10/s) (r – m)

It gives a relative ranking to the candidate in any discipline
