AP EAPCET (AP EAMCET) Normalization Procedure

Examinations held in multiple sessions can often lead to discrepancies in the difficulty level of the paper. The differences can cause a serious effect on the evaluation of a candidate’s performance, and lead to an erroneous merit list. In competitive exams where a single point can be the difference between a candidate getting selected or rejected, it is important that we strive for the most balanced result process. Normalization of scores can solve this problem.

The normalization of scores is applied to the raw scores obtained by students in their respective papers. The once 75% weightage of normalization scores has now been increased to 100% for AP EAPCET (AP EAMCET) 2022 in the absence of class 12th scores.

AP EAPCET (AP EAMCET) 2022 Cutoff 

Cutoff lists determine the minimum baseline requirement of marks for admission into any course or college after EAPCET. Each participating institute and its correspondence course has a separate cut off list, which quantifies the minimum mark requirement. The rank list is used to segregate top-performing students and students who have any chance of admission into any of the courses from the rest of the applicants.

The rank list of the EAPCET is based on the normalized scores obtained after the conclusion of all the exams. Candidates with scorers either more than or equal to the cut off are a part of the rank list. Performing the best in EAPCET 2022 is incredibly important, as 100% of the selection weightage depends on the exam cut off list.
