The issue of 'normalization of marks' will be taken by the  Confederation of Kerala Sahodaya Complexes, with the CBSE controller of examinations K.K. Chaudhary on Saturday.

"Chaudhary is set to go on a statewide meet of the CBSE school principals sorted out by the confederation here," said Mr Mahesh D Dharmadhikari, joint secretary and regional officer, CBSE, Thiruvananthapuram.

The issue of 'normalization of marks' was criticized, from the time it was proposed by the previous LDF government for the engineering entrance examination was that it was one-sided against CBSE and ICSE stream students.

Normalization is a technique for bringing marks scored by candidates in different Plus -Two board examinations in the country and abroad in the same plane.

For this, the mean and standard deviation of the scores from the CBSE, ICSE,  Kerala Higher Secondary and  Kerala Vocational Higher Secondary examinations would be calculated.

The ‘combined mean’ and the ‘combined standard deviation’ will be derived from this afterwards.

The other issues to be examined in point of interest will be the grace marks for sports and cultural competitors, the new changes arranged by the CBSE to enhance the instruction framework in its schools and the organization of CBSE school administrations, said Mr K. Unnikrishnan, confederation president.

A meeting of the confederation was inaugurated by the former Indian ambassador T.p. Srinivasan here on Friday.
