The Railways on Wednesday clarified about the Level-1 Railway Recruitment Board exams, saying marks secured by candidates are subject to normalisation, which may result in students securing more than the total marks for the paper.

The clarification came after a purported score sheet of a candidate of a group-D exam went viral on social networking sites on Tuesday, showing the student scored 102, 109, 130, 148, 354 marks out of 100 in different sections of the test.

The Railways also said that the scorecard was morphed.

"A candidate's score sheet with very high scores has gone viral. Please note that this score sheet is morphed. The correct score sheet is given below. Please don't be misguided by unscrupulous elements," the Railways tweeted.

Normalisation is a process for ensuring that students are neither advantaged nor disadvantaged by the difficulty of papers they write.

The Railways also clarified that it had not introduced any new method of result preparation.
