[bold_title]Normalization in MBA CET[/bold_title]

Can you compare rankings of Bollywood Stars to that of Cricketers or Business Tycoons… Well we cant compare apples with oranges.. Similarly comparing one exam over different slots is next to impossible.. It can only be done via normalisation.

Few questions in the air:
What is normalization in CET
My Exam was tough but my friends got easy
Some students who take exam on later date will have advantage as they know pattern

Normalization take cares of all these problems. Normalization is used by CAT and NMAT while ignored by CMAT. Lets see scores of 3 slots of CET…

Slot 1 – Day 1 Morning Medium paper Ranking of Bollywood stars

Slot Name Score Rank Percentile
1 Salman 155 1 99.99
1 Aamir 149 2 99.99

MBA CET 2014 paper analysis

MUMBAI: The Maharashtra government will conduct its own common entrance test ( CET) for MBA/MMS admissions from the next academic year.

While this year, admissions to these courses were done only on basis of the scores in the common management admission test (CMAT) conducted by the All India Council of Technical Education, the state will revert to the earlier system. The decision has been taken after Maharashtra saw a 50% drop in the number of MBA aspirants this year.

From the academic year 2014-15, 65% seats under the state quota will be filled using the scores in the MH-CET for MBA/MMS. The state recently passed the order after an association of management colleges made an appeal to revoke the policy, claiming that awareness about the national-level CMAT exam was low among students. “The entire process for CMAT is done online. Students in rural areas are hesitant about the online process and exams. There has been a dip in the number of applicants this year and therefore, the number of vacancies in colleges has risen,” said a director of a management college. This year, around 20,000 students had applied for MBA/MSS courses in the state-less than half of last year’s 42,490 applicants.

A circular to this effect has been put up on the website of the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE).

Dayanand Meshram, joint director, said, “While 20% seats will be with the management, the 15% all-India quota seats can be filled by colleges using scores of CMAT, CAT, XAT, MAT or any other national-level MBA entrance exams.” While this year, the directorate of technical education did not conduct group discussions and personal interviews, officials are yet to take a decision on the admission process for next year.
