There is a need for normalising the marks across shifts to make them amenable to such comparisons.

According to the CUET 2024 normalisation process stated by NTA, the raw score of each candidate in each subject will be normalised using the Equi- percentile method. This is done separately for each subject for which examination is held in multiple shifts. Normalisation process will not be implemented on subjects which will be held in single shift.
