UGC NET Exam was conducted in a single-day session till July 2018. But seeing the popularity and increase in the number of aspirants appearing in the exam, NTA has decided to conduct the UGC NET Exam on various dates in two sessions from Dec 2018.
According to the official, there will be different sets of question papers with different difficulty levels for each session as it's quite impossible to keep up with the level of questions in each session.
So, to evaluate the performance of candidates, NTA has come up with a new procedure named “ UGC NET Normalization”
Here, we have provided you the following details about this new “ UGC NET Normalization Procedure” Check them below.
If you are going to appear in the upcoming NET Exam then, you should know about the UGC NET Normalization Procedure 2021.
Here’s what officials say about the UGC NET Normalization Procedure –
“This Normalization procedure is an established practice for comparing aspirants scores across multi-session papers. NTA Shall use the percentile equivalence for normalization across sections”.
The main objective of using this UGC NET Normalization Procedure is to ensure that aspirants are neither benefited nor disadvantaged due to ups and down in difficulty level of exam.
What is the formula to calculate cut-off marks for UGC NET?
Below, we have shared the complete procedure with a formula that is going to be used to evaluate the performance of candidates in the NET Exam.
It is certain that NTA will announce the NET Result by implementing the UCC NET Normalization Procedure on your marks but, you should also get an idea of the UGC NET Normalization formula which will be used by officials to meet up with perfect results.
This procedure is based on the UGC NET Normalization Score (Percentile scores) of candidates. So before moving further, you should know about the term "UGC NET Percentile Scores".
These UGC NET Normalized scores are totally based on the relative performance of all those who appear 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.
Below, we have elaborated this term wisely. The Normalized Marks in UGC NET indicates the total obtained percentage of candidates in the exam that have scored equal to or below that particular percentile in the 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 will be calculated up to seven decimal places.
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.
The percentile of the total shall not be an aggregate or average of the percentile of the individual subject.
Above we have discussed the overall idea of calculating the UGC NET Normalized Scores of candidates from raw marks.
Now, here you are going to know about all the required steps that help to announce the complete UGC NET Result.

As the number of candidates who appear for UGC NET is increasing every year, it has become essential to distribute the total candidates into two sessions in equal numbers. These sessions will be created as follows –
Session I – Day 1 & Shift 1
Session II – Day 1 & Shift 2
There might be an increase in variations as per the increasing number of candidates.
Based on the raw scores of all the candidates in each session, NTA will prepare the UGC NET Result.
The UGC NET 2021 Normalization Procedure will be used to convert the raw scores of candidates into percentile scores.
The percentile scores will be calculated for each candidate based on the below-mentioned formula.
For the compilation of NTA NET Results and further processing of deciding the allocation, the UGC NET 2021 Percentile Scores should be merged for the total Raw Scores of all the sessions.
