Railway Clears RRB Group D Normalized Result Confusion Aglasem

After the RRB Group D Result declared on March 4, 2019. There was confusion among the students how the Result of RRB Group D has been prepared by the RRB. To clear out all the false information, the Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) has released a notice to give an idea of how marks are being calculated.

The marks obtained by the candidates in the RRB Group D is as per the normalization process. So, there can be a possibility that the total marks secured by the candidates are more than the maximum marks. RRB also stated that the process of normalization is being followed by them since 2000 which is 19 Years from now.


RRB has also specified the Part in the CEN 02/2018 notice where it has been mentioned about the normalization of marks.

Candidates must take note that no alternative method has been used to prepare the RRB Group D Result. The aspirants are selected for the Physical Efficiency Test (PET) purely on the basis of the marks obtained further followed by the method of normalization.

The normalization of the scores is done on the basis of the following process. Xn=(Sn/S1)*(X-Xav)+Yav, where S2 stands for Standard Deviation (SD) of the shift with the Highest Average Score for normalization, S1: Standard Deviation for that shift whose scores have to be normalized, X is raw scores of the student, Xav is simple average of the shift and Yav means Average corresponding to shift with highest Average (For normalization).

There can be a possibility that marks obtained by the candidates in the exam is more than the total marks. There have been numerous examples in the recruitment process where a candidate has obtained marks more than the total marks. Like if a student has obtained 105 marks out of 100 then it is valid. The maximum marks which a candidate can obtain in the RRB Group D CBT are 126.13. Scores higher than this is considered fabricated.

The RRB Group D Result is published as per the final answer key. Candidates had also been given the option to raise objection against the answer key if they were dissatisfied with the answers. Around 1.58 lakh applicants had raised the objection.

It is also expected that Railway will employ 2.5 Lakh aspirants who always wanted to be in the govt job in the coming 2 years. As per the ongoing recruitment process in the Railways, a total of 4 lakh people are going to be employed in the Indian Railways. In Group D total 62907 vacancies have been released by the RRB. Students who were not able to clear the CBT exam for Level – 1 posts should not lose the hope as 1 lakh more vacancies are going to be released for RRC Group D for which candidates can fill the application form from March 12, 2019, onwards.
