UGC NET Normalization Score/ Percentile Scores


These UGC NET Normalized scores are totally based on the relative performance of all those who have appeared for the NTA NET Examination. It means the marks obtained by candidates are transformed into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each session of UGC NET Exam.

The highest scorer of each session will get the same desirable percentile of 100.

Instead of raw scores of the NET candidates, the UGC NET Percentile Scores will be used for the preparation of the merit lists.

The marks in between the highest and lowest scores will also be converted to appropriate percentiles.

To avoid bunching effect and ties, the UGC NET Normalized Scores 2022 will be calculated up to seven decimal places.



UGC NET Normalization Formula


Here is the UGC NET Normalization Formula that is used to calculate the percentile scores of candidates –

100 X No. of Candidates Appeared in the ‘Session’ with Raw Score Equal to or Less than the Candidate

Total Number of Candidates Appeared in the Session


Important Note –

UGC NET Normalized Scores will not be the same as the percentage of marks obtained by candidates.
