  • 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.
Scores obtained by candidates on any test are equated to the base form by considering the distribution of scores of all the forms.
  • Final scores in each test are rounded off to two digits after the decimal point.
