CAT introduced the Normalisation process when the exams started happening in multiple batches. As the exams were conducted in two slots this time, to ensure that aspirants who took the exam in two different batches are compared fairly while calculating their percentiles, scores are then normalised to calculate what the CAT score card refers to as ‘scaled score’.

The exact process of normalisation is clear to only concerned authorities, but it should naturally factor in things like difficulty of questions, sequence (order) of questions, and might include locational fine tuning.
