BHU Admissions through CUET 2022

Banaras Hindu University (BHU), one of the top institutions of eminence in the country recognized by the Ministry of Education, decided to use the Common Universities Entrance Test (CUET) normalization score for shortlisting aspirants for its various undergraduate programs.

The adoption of CUET was introduced to give an equal opportunity for aspirants across India and reduce the overall burden of attending various entrances as well.

In addition to qualifying for the entrance exam, you must fulfill other eligibility conditions to get admission to the university.

Read through the post that will give you a complete insight into BHU Admissions through CUET Exam 2022 in terms of eligibility, duration of the course, fee structure, and more.

How is the BHU Merit list calculated? 

As mentioned, the university will be considering the CUET normalized scores prepared by NTA to prepare the merit list.

So let's check an example to know how NTA calculates the scores for all students who wrote the exams in different phases. 

Step 1: Using raw marks of the students in different shifts, calculate the percentiles of students in each shift.

To calculate the normalized marks across different sessions in a given subject, first, we need to find the percentile of each group of these students for each shift using the raw marks they have scored. Let us say in a given shift, 100 students have appeared for the test. We sort their marks in decreasing order.

Let us assume that one student among these 100 students has scored 87 % marks. Now let us assume that 80 out of 100 students have secured less than or equal to 87% marks. The percentile of this student with 87% marks would be 80/100=0⋅8. The percentile so calculated will always be between 0 and 1, and it is usually rounded off to the requisite number of decimal places.

Step 2: Arrange these percentiles in descending order by noting the students' raw marks in each shift.

Let us now assume that there are six students (Stu1,Stu2,Stu3,Stu4,Stu5,Stu6). Three of them (Stu2,Stu4,Stu6) have taken the test in shift-1 and the remaining (Stu1,Stu3,Stu5) in shift-2 but all in the same subject. Using the raw marks of these students, first, the percentiles (PStu1 ,PStu2 ,PStu3 ,PStu4 ,PStu5 ,PStu6)of these six students in a given subject are calculated and are sorted in decreasing order. Their Raw Marks (RMStu1, RMStu2 , RMStu3, RMStu4, RMStu5, RMStu6)in the test in each shift are also noted corresponding to their percentiles.

Let us assume that the percentiles in the descending order are as follows: PStu5 >PStu2 >PStu1 >PStu4 >PStu6 >PStu3

Student Percentile Raw Marks in shift-1 Raw marks in shift-2
Student 5 P stu5 Blank RMStu5
Student 2 P stu2 RMStu2 Blank
Student 1 P stu1 Blank RMStu1
Student 4 P stu4 RMStu4 Blank
Student 6 P stu6 RMStu6 Blank
Student 3 P stu3 Blank RMStu3

Step 3: Using linear interpolation, calculate the marks of the students in the above blanks in the table

Since some students (Stu2, Stu4, Stu6) have attended shift-1 and not shift-2, their raw marks in shift-2 will not be present. Similarly, the students (Stu1, Stu3, Stu5) who wrote the exam in shift-2 will have no marks in shift-1. These missing marks of each candidate in each shift are then calculated using a method called interpolation. Interpolation is a mathematical way of estimating missing marks of the students who are absent in one shift because they have already taken the test in the other shift. The students' Interpolated Marks (IMStu1, IMStu2, IMStu3, IMStu4, IMStu5, IMStu6) are now shown in the table below.

Student Percentile Marks in shift-1 Marks in shift-2
Student 5 P stu5 IMStu5 RMStu5
Student 2 P stu2 RMStu2 IMStu2
Student 1 P stu1 IMStu1 RMStu1
Student 4 P stu4 RMStu4 IMStu4
Student 6 P stu6 RMStu6 IMStu6
Student 3 P stu3 IMStu3 RMStu3

Step 4: Calculate the normalized marks for each student on a common scale

Using the above method, each percentile value of the candidates sorted in descending order will have marks for both shifts, raw marks, and interpolated marks. Raw marks are available in the shift where the student has written a test, and interpolated marks are estimated in the other shift because the student could not have written a test for the second time in the same subject. For each student, we then calculate the average of the actual raw marks in one shift and the marks obtained using interpolation in the other shift. This will give the normalized marks for the corresponding percentile of each candidate, as shown below.

Student Percentile Marks in shift-1 Marks in shift-2 Normalized Marks
Student 5 P stu5 IMStu5 RMStu5 (IMStu5+ RMStu5)/2
Student 2 P stu2 RMStu2 IMStu2 (RMStu2 + IMStu2 )/2
Student 1 P stu1 IMStu1 RMStu1 (IMStu1+ RMStu1)/2
Student 4 P stu4 RMStu4 IMStu4 (RMStu4+ IMStu4 )/2
Student 6 P stu6 RMStu6 IMStu6 (RMStu6+ IMStu6 )/2
Student 3 P stu3 IMStu3 RMStu3 (IMStu3+ RMStu3)/2

This method has been shown to be accurate for estimating normalized marks of candidates when the tests are held in multiple sessions with varying difficulty levels in a given subject. The scorecard of a candidate will have percentiles and normalized marks. Universities must use the normalized marks in the scorecard to prepare the admissions ranking list.

BHU Admissions through CUET 2022

Banaras Hindu University (BHU), one of the top institutions of eminence in the country recognized by the Ministry of Education, decided to use the Common Universities Entrance Test (CUET) normalization score for shortlisting aspirants for its various undergraduate programs.

The adoption of CUET was introduced to give an equal opportunity for aspirants across India and reduce the overall burden of attending various entrances as well.

In addition to qualifying for the entrance exam, you must fulfill other eligibility conditions to get admission to the university.

Read through the post that will give you a complete insight into BHU Admissions through CUET Exam 2022 in terms of eligibility, duration of the course, fee structure, and more.

How is the BHU Merit list calculated? 

As mentioned, the university will be considering the CUET normalized scores prepared by NTA to prepare the merit list.

So let's check an example to know how NTA calculates the scores for all students who wrote the exams in different phases. 

Step 1: Using raw marks of the students in different shifts, calculate the percentiles of students in each shift.

To calculate the normalized marks across different sessions in a given subject, first, we need to find the percentile of each group of these students for each shift using the raw marks they have scored. Let us say in a given shift, 100 students have appeared for the test. We sort their marks in decreasing order.

Let us assume that one student among these 100 students has scored 87 % marks. Now let us assume that 80 out of 100 students have secured less than or equal to 87% marks. The percentile of this student with 87% marks would be 80/100=0⋅8. The percentile so calculated will always be between 0 and 1, and it is usually rounded off to the requisite number of decimal places.

Step 2: Arrange these percentiles in descending order by noting the students' raw marks in each shift.

Let us now assume that there are six students (Stu1,Stu2,Stu3,Stu4,Stu5,Stu6). Three of them (Stu2,Stu4,Stu6) have taken the test in shift-1 and the remaining (Stu1,Stu3,Stu5) in shift-2 but all in the same subject. Using the raw marks of these students, first, the percentiles (PStu1 ,PStu2 ,PStu3 ,PStu4 ,PStu5 ,PStu6)of these six students in a given subject are calculated and are sorted in decreasing order. Their Raw Marks (RMStu1, RMStu2 , RMStu3, RMStu4, RMStu5, RMStu6)in the test in each shift are also noted corresponding to their percentiles.

Let us assume that the percentiles in the descending order are as follows: PStu5 >PStu2 >PStu1 >PStu4 >PStu6 >PStu3

Student Percentile Raw Marks in shift-1 Raw marks in shift-2
Student 5 P stu5 Blank RMStu5
Student 2 P stu2 RMStu2 Blank
Student 1 P stu1 Blank RMStu1
Student 4 P stu4 RMStu4 Blank
Student 6 P stu6 RMStu6 Blank
Student 3 P stu3 Blank RMStu3

Step 3: Using linear interpolation, calculate the marks of the students in the above blanks in the table

Since some students (Stu2, Stu4, Stu6) have attended shift-1 and not shift-2, their raw marks in shift-2 will not be present. Similarly, the students (Stu1, Stu3, Stu5) who wrote the exam in shift-2 will have no marks in shift-1. These missing marks of each candidate in each shift are then calculated using a method called interpolation. Interpolation is a mathematical way of estimating missing marks of the students who are absent in one shift because they have already taken the test in the other shift. The students' Interpolated Marks (IMStu1, IMStu2, IMStu3, IMStu4, IMStu5, IMStu6) are now shown in the table below.

Student Percentile Marks in shift-1 Marks in shift-2
Student 5 P stu5 IMStu5 RMStu5
Student 2 P stu2 RMStu2 IMStu2
Student 1 P stu1 IMStu1 RMStu1
Student 4 P stu4 RMStu4 IMStu4
Student 6 P stu6 RMStu6 IMStu6
Student 3 P stu3 IMStu3 RMStu3

Step 4: Calculate the normalized marks for each student on a common scale

Using the above method, each percentile value of the candidates sorted in descending order will have marks for both shifts, raw marks, and interpolated marks. Raw marks are available in the shift where the student has written a test, and interpolated marks are estimated in the other shift because the student could not have written a test for the second time in the same subject. For each student, we then calculate the average of the actual raw marks in one shift and the marks obtained using interpolation in the other shift. This will give the normalized marks for the corresponding percentile of each candidate, as shown below.

Student Percentile Marks in shift-1 Marks in shift-2 Normalized Marks
Student 5 P stu5 IMStu5 RMStu5 (IMStu5+ RMStu5)/2
Student 2 P stu2 RMStu2 IMStu2 (RMStu2 + IMStu2 )/2
Student 1 P stu1 IMStu1 RMStu1 (IMStu1+ RMStu1)/2
Student 4 P stu4 RMStu4 IMStu4 (RMStu4+ IMStu4 )/2
Student 6 P stu6 RMStu6 IMStu6 (RMStu6+ IMStu6 )/2
Student 3 P stu3 IMStu3 RMStu3 (IMStu3+ RMStu3)/2
