How does IBPS calculate Total Weighted Standard Score? STANDARDIZED SCORES
  • The corrected scores obtained by each of the candidates in different sessions will first be normalized using equipercentile method.
  • Normalized scores may subsequently be standardized by linear conversion method.
  • If the standard score obtained is in fraction, the marks obtained will be rounded off to the nearest integer, i.e. if fraction is 0.50 or more, it will be rounded off to next higher integer.
CUTOFF SCORE

Each candidate will have to secure a minimum standard score in each of the tests as well as on the Total Weighted Standard Score to be called for interview. The cut-off points to qualify in each of the tests will be decided based on the average (Average ? ? Standard Deviation for General category candidates and Average ? ? Standard Deviation for Reserved Category candidates).
