Process for arriving at the Standard Scores for IBPS

The standard score can be simply calculated through the following procedure:

  • 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.
  • 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. This is done by equating the scores obtained by candidates on any test to the base form by considering the distribution of scores of all the forms
  • The Equated Scores so obtained are standardized to arrive at Final Standard Score with a minimum ‘0’ and maximum ‘50’ by following Linear Transformation Method. This procedure is followed for each of the tests.
