New Delhi: The National Testing Agency (NTA) on Friday declared the results of the first edition of Common University Entrance Test (CUET) -UG 2022. The result was to be declared on Thursday at 10 pm but got delayed due to a huge database, the NTA informed after midnight.
“The merit list will be prepared by the participating universities who will decide about their individual counseling on the basis of CUET-UG score card,” NTA Senior Director (Exams) Sadhna Parashar reported.
Speaking on the scoring method Parashar told PTI, that the performance of each candidate was assessed using the “even-percentage method”. Under this method, the normalized scores of each candidate are calculated using the percentage of each group of students in a given session over multiple days for the same subject.
“For many subjects, CUET-UG was conducted in different shifts. Since the question papers of any subject are different in different shifts and it is quite possible that the similarity between the different question papers will not be maintained. Despite all the possible efforts of the UPSC, the difficulty level of these question papers administered in different sessions may not be the same or the same,” Parashar said.
He said, “Some candidates end up attempting relatively difficult questions as compared to other sets. Candidates who have attempted a comparatively difficult test are likely to get less marks than those who attempted the easier test “
