According to the CUET Results 2022, It seems that this race might get more challenging as the candidates’ percentile is higher in English than in any other subject. A total of 8, 236 candidates have scored a perfect 100 percentile in English this year compared to any other subject, showing the cut-off for B.A. (English) Programme at DU is set to be tough this year. 

The National Testing Agency, NTA conducted the exams for Common University Entrance Test undergraduate (CUET UG) 2022 in six phases from July 15 to August 30 held in 547 cities within India and 13 cities outside India. The final results for the said exam have been released on the official website at 4 am today, September 16.

It should be noted that the scores of CUET-UG exam are to be used by several universities across the country for admission to UG programs. The said exam was conducted over a period of 6 weeks with tests in a given subject held on different days. So, a question arises how are we going to compare the performance of different students on a common scale since they have written the test in the same subject but on different days? We need to ensure that the admissions are made based on a CUET UG score that accurately compares the performance of the students.

NTA equipercentile method

Today, the National Testing Agency, NTA has released the normalizations of marks for CUET-UG. The scores of the candidate in each subject will be calculated using equipercentile method. This is done separately for each subject for which the exam is held in multiple shifts. So that the performance of students can be compared to each other. 

In equipercentile method, the percentile for each candidate is calculated using the raw marks of the candidate as compared to the raw marks of others in the same session. This is done for every session across multiple days for the same subject. These percentiles are then equated and converted into normalized marks. For sessions with a smaller number of candidates, these are clubbed with bigger sessions.
