How Cut Off is Calculated in IBPS CWE for PO, Clerk and Specialist Officer
BPS Common Written Exam (CWE) for PO, Clerk, and Specialist Officer is nothing short of a watershed moment in the history of Indian Banking. The Common Exam has simplified the tedious and tough job of selecting candidates by following the Government norms by nationalized banks. It should be remembered here that nationalized banks can’t recruit candidate on ad-hoc basis like Private Banks do. They need to follow Government norms of reservation and providing equal opportunity to all. That is why recruiting officers and clerks used to be a tough job for these banks. But, not now as CWE has simplified the whole process.
Since this is a Common Written Exam for 19 nationalized banks among others the process of calculating minimum qualifying marks is not easy. Lots of students simply don’t understand the rationality behind their marks in their score card. However, one must remember here that arriving at a cut-off is not easy when the exam is being organized in more than one session. IBPS has devised two formulas for getting cut-off that is Standard Score and Total Weighted Score. The result of PO and Clerk is out and students can look into their score card to understand the rationality behind their marks.
Process for Calculating Standard Score in CWE
Standard Score is calculated by following these three procedures:
1. Corrected Score: This is the score obtained by a candidate in CWE. Corrected Score is nothing but deducting negative marks (if any) from the correct answers that an aspirant has given.
2. Equated Score: Since CWE is being organized in more than one session hence it is simply not possible to give different question papers of same difficulty level. This is a competitive exam where even one question can change the landscape for a candidate. Hence, Corrected Score obtained by a candidate is then moderated according to the difficulty level of the paper for that particular student. This moderated score is known as Equated Score. Remember that for a candidate Equated Score may be lower than Corrected Score, or may even go up by few marks than his actual Corrected Score. This process is very much needed to maintain a level playing field for all aspirants.
3. Final Standardized Score: The Equated Score obtained from the second procedure is then standardized by using a mathematical formula (Mean 25 and Standard Deviation 5). The Linear Transformation Method is used to arrive Final Standardized Score – minimum 0 and maximum 50. This is the score that aspirants see in their score card.
CWE result for PO and Clerk is out and aspirants can see their Standardized score in their score cards. Interestingly, the cut off in both CWE remained the same. For General Category students the cut off was 24 in all sections (120 minimum), and for others it was 21 in all sections (105 minimum).
