Due to which the marks scored by the candidates in different shifts vary.
Now, the challenge is how to end this problem? The answer to this question is Normalization.
What is JKSSB Normalization
Additionally, JKSSB has clearly mentioned in their Notification of Class IV Examination that:
“The Services Selection Board shall as far as possible hold
single examination for filling these vacancies. However, if for

parameters and aims to adjust the difficulty level across different shifts of the exam.

For example, the average marks, scored by the students in the first shift were 60 out of
100 and in the second and third shift students were able to score 70 out of 200.
The reason was the difference in the difficulty level of the question paper & hence the aspirants were
unable to score more in the first shift.
To tackle this situation, JKSSB is now following the process of normalization.
This time JKSSB, in its official notification, has clearly stated that the marks scored by the candidates will be normalized.
