The total number of 100 percentiles in 30 domains and the general test has been 19,865 candidates and the overall number of 100 percentiles including the 31 languages and vocational subjects is 21,159.
At least 12 candidates scored 100 percentile normalized score in all five subjects in the debut edition of the Common University Entrance Test-UG while 104 got the perfect score in four subjects, according to the National Testing Agency. Girls outshone boys in the CUET-UG as well as board and several other entrance exams — seven are girls among the candidates who scored 100 percentile in five subjects, while 76 girls scored 100 percentile in four subjects. The results for the first edition of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) UG were declared on Friday, September 16.
The University Grants Commission (UGC) said the rank lists will be prepared by universities on the basis of “normalised” scores and not percentile or raw marks. A total of 21,159 candidates — 12,799 female and 8,360 male students — have scored 100 percentile in at least one subject.
The CUET results also indicate that admission to Humanities and Commerce courses in many sought-after colleges will continue to remain difficult, while it would be comparatively easier to secure a seat in the Sciences.
The “normalisation” of marks in CUET UG has left several aspirants disappointed as they found their marks reduced from their original scores, making it difficult for them to get their dream college. While UGC chief Jagadesh Kumar claimed the normalisation has been done to provide a “level playing field” to all candidates, the students termed the process “unfair”.
