This system is intended to ensure that the UP Police selection process is fair to all candidates and that the best candidates are chosen for the job. This article will describe the new UP Police Normalization formula, how it works, and its significance.

UP Police Normalization Marks

As per the official notice issued on the official website (uppbpb.gov.in), a provision has been made in various service manuals to the effect that in case the written examination is conducted in two or more shifts, the Uttar Pradesh Police Recruitment & Promotion Board will consider the normalization of candidates’ marks.

How Does New UP Police Exam Normalization Work?

Candidates appearing for the various UP Police recruitment examinations must understand the normalization process and how the exam conducting body calculates the final scores. The new UP Police Normalization Formula is explained below:

  • Mij = Normalized marks of the candidates who appeared in shift 1.
  • M‾tg = Average marks of the top 0.1% candidates of all shifts.
  • Mqg = sum of mean and standard deviation marks of the candidates of all shifts examination.
  • M‾ti = average marks of the top 0.1% of the candidates in the ith shift.
  • Miq = sum of mean marks and standard deviation of the ith shift
  • Mij = actual marks obtained by the candidates in the ith shift.
  • Mqgm = sum of mean marks of the candidates in the shift having maximum mean and standard derivation of marks of the candidates in all shifts of the examination. 

Note: The calculation of marks will be done up to the 05 decimal points. 

Candidates are advised to regularly visit the official website of the board for further updates of the examination.


UP Police Normalization is a process used by the Uttar Pradesh police to reduce discrepancies in police recruitment exam results.

The UP Police Normalization is implemented by the UPPSPB to reduce disparities in police recruitment exam results and to create a more transparent and fair recruitment process. The board considered the process followed by the UPSSSC while making the change.

Unlike previous processes, UP Police Normalization calculates an adjusted score for each candidate based on their performance relative to other candidates who took the test on the same day and in the same slot.
