The National Testing Agency (NTA) announced the Chuet UG 2022 results on Friday, with at least 12 candidates scoring 100 percent normal in five subjects and 104 students securing perfect scores in four subjects. The University Grants Commission (UGC) has said that the rank lists will be made by universities based on “normalized” scores and not percentage or raw marks.

Among these examinees, seven girls secured 100 per cent marks in five subjects and 76 girls secured 100 per cent marks in four subjects. A total of 21,159 examinees — 12,799 female and 8,360 male students — secured 100 per cent marks in at least one subject.

Subject-wise, English has the highest number of 100 percentiles with 8,236 candidates scoring perfect, followed by Political Science with 2,065 perfect scores. Also 1669 candidates scored perfect in Business Studies.

Biology, Economics and Psychology are other subjects where more than 1000 students scored 100 percent marks. The data suggests that the cut-off for admission to these courses will naturally be higher.

These scores were calculated after a normalization process, as the tests were conducted in different shifts on different days.

The “normalization” of marks in CUET-UG has disappointed many candidates as they find their marks lower than their original scores, making it difficult for them to get their dream colleges.

“Each candidate’s performance has been assessed using equal-percentage method where the percentage of each candidate in each group of students in a particular session spanning multiple days for the same subject is calculated,” said Sadhan Parashar, Senior Director (Examination), NTA.

“The merit lists will be prepared by the participating universities, who will decide on their individual counseling based on the CHEET-UG score card,” he added.

Delhi University will use subject-wise ‘Normalized Score’ for admission to undergraduate courses. The university has announced the second phase of the admission process, where candidates will give their choice for the program. The second phase begins on September 26 and ends on October 10.
