RRB NTPC Exam Cut-Off 2020 Factors

RRB NTPC Exam Cut Off is decided each year on basis of following factors:

  • Number of candidates appearing for the RRB NTPC Exam.
  • Number of vacancies for that year
  • Overall difficulty level of exam
  • Category-wise reservation criteria as per the RRB
  • Performance of the candidates in the exam

RRB NTPC 2020 Score Calculation

Before RRB NTPC Exam Cut-Off is decided, aspirants should know the basic scoring terminology of RRB NTPC 2020 Exam. These terms are regarding the basic scores obtained by candidate.

Raw Score: Raw Score is the primary stage of the marks obtained by the candidate. RRB NTPC Exam consists of questions that carry 1 (one) mark each and for each wrong answer given by the candidate, 0.25 marks are deducted.

Suppose, total questions attempted by the candidate is 60. A number of wrongly answered questions is 10. Then, Raw Score will be calculated as:

Raw Score = 70 – 10 – (0.25 * 10) = 57.5

Hence, the raw score of the candidate is 57.5.

Average Score: RRB NTPC 2020 Exam will be consisting of multiple papers. Say, there are three papers in RRB NTPC Exam namely Paper-I, Paper-II and Paper-III. RRB NTPC result obtained by candidate in each of the papers is 84, 70 and 65. Then average score of the candidate will be calculated as per formulae:

                Average Score = (84 + 70 +65)/3 = 73

                Hence, the Average Score of the candidate is 73.

RRB NTPC Normalized Score

Since RRB NTPC Exam will be conducted in different settings and batches, difficulty level of exam will vary accordingly. Hence, to nullify this effect,  normalization of score is done. Formulae for normalization of the RRB NTPC scores are as follows.

To explain above evaluation, consider following:

  • Average marks obtained by the candidate appeared in all shifts are 35.
  • Average marks of the top 0.1% of candidates are 70.
  • You have appeared in a batch which is easier and the marks obtained by the top 0.1% of candidates are 80.
  • Average marks obtained by the candidates of your batch are 65.
  • You have obtained 75 marks.

Now, the normalized marks obtained by you will be calculated as:

[{(70-35)/ (80-65)}*(75-65)] + 35 = 58.33

The marks obtained by the candidate in an easier shift after normalization are usually lesser than actually obtained marks. Similarly, the marks obtained by the candidates in a difficult shift after normalization will be more than the actual marks obtained.
