Common Written Examination (CWE) for recruitment of Clerical Cadre (CWE-Clerks-II)
There are many doubts among the students that how IBPS arrive at standard scores while calculating the scores for IBPS CWE Clerks-2 exam. So, today I’ll share the process of arriving at Standard scores given by IBPS on their official website.
Process for Arriving at Standard Scores
The Standard Scores are obtained by adopting the following procedure:
1) Number of questions answered correctly by a candidate in each objective test is considered for arriving at the Corrected Score after applying penalty for wrong answers.
2) The Corrected Scores so obtained by a candidate are made equivalent to take care of the minor difference in difficulty level, if any, in each of the objective tests held in different sessions to arrive at the Equated Scores*. (*Scores obtained by candidates on any test are equated to the base form by considering the distribution of scores of all the forms.)
3) The Equated Scores so obtained are standardized** to arrive at Final Standard Score with a minimum ‘0’ and maximum ‘40’ by following Linear Transformation Method.(**The equated scores in each test are scaled to Standardised Scores with Mean 20 and Standard Deviation 4)
This procedure is followed for each of the tests.
Note: Cutoffs were applied in two stages:
a) On standard scores in individual tests.
b) On Total Weighted Standard Score.
