SHARE

Summary: 

This year, a total of 90 universities participated in the CUET entrance exam. The cut-off list is prepared based on the normalized CUET scores given by NTA. Most colleges have started the phase 2 admission process and have started collecting applicants' CUET scores and other documents.

Most universities have a dedicated website for publishing the CUET UG Cut off list. Therefore, you must visit the official website of the college/ university to which you have applied. 

Most colleges may require you to upload normalized CUET scores and documents to prepare the CUET cut-off and merit list. 

Once you upload the normalized score and requested document, the merit list will be prepared, through which you will learn if your candidature is accepted or rejected by the college. Only those who score above the cut-off will be shortlisted and called for the counseling session.

The CUET cut off list is prepared, taking a number of factors into consideration like the number of seats for the course, number of students who applied, score obtained, the previous year cut-off trends, and your category. 

What should be your safe score to get admission to Delhi University? Let's find out! 

The CUET result 2022 was released on September 15, 2022, at around 10 PM by the conducting body NTA. It is the most awaited result of the year as nearly 9,68,201 candidates were expecting their CUET scores to join prestigious colleges like DU, JMI, AMU, and so forth.

Ideally, once the results are out, the respective universities accepting CUET scores prepare their CUET cut off list.  

Top colleges like AMU, DU, BHU, and JNU have started the second phase of the admission process, after which the merit list will be published based on the CUET Cut off 2022 followed by the counseling process. 

Cut off marks are the minimum qualifying scores you must possess in order to be shortlisted through the CUET entrance exam. The cut off marks vary for each category for admission into different undergraduate programs in these CUET colleges.

Let's understand the factors affecting the CUET Cut off 2022, and the expected CUET Cut off 2022 discussed in the article.

Expected CUET 2022 Cut Off

Usually, the cut off marks are released post-declaration of CUET Result 2022. Once you have an idea of the expected cut off, you will know if you are likely to get a seat in the desired college. 

As the exam is conducted for the very first time, there is no official announcement regarding the CUET cut off 2022 marks for the Common Universities Entrance Test. 

However, you can check the expected cut off marks for different categories provided by our expert team from Supergrads.

Category CUET Cut Off 2022 (percentile)
General 60
OBC 55
SC 40
ST 40
EWS 35

CUET Cut off 2022 Calculation

Once the CUET result is announced, you have to keep note of the following to calculate the cut-off scores, which is explained below: 

CUET Result has 2 components they are raw score and NTA score (Percentile) 

Normalization will be implemented while computing the CUET scores. The concept is thoroughly explained in the video by our expert. 

Let's check how these normalized marks are calculated on a common scale using the equipercentile method in a given subject. This involves four steps.

  • 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.

Expected Delhi University CUET Cut off 2022

We can expect the Delhi university to have the following CUET Cut off list: 

North Campus Caste Require Score to make to the cut off list
General Merit 720/800
OBC 610/800
SC/ ST 600/800
South Campus Caste Require Score to make to the cut off list
General Merit 600/800
OBC 550/800

NTA CUET Cut off 2022 - Category Wise Scores, Merit List

Author : Aparna

Updated On : October 6, 2022

SHARE

Summary: 

This year, a total of 90 universities participated in the CUET entrance exam. The cut-off list is prepared based on the normalized CUET scores given by NTA. Most colleges have started the phase 2 admission process and have started collecting applicants' CUET scores and other documents.

Most universities have a dedicated website for publishing the CUET UG Cut off list. Therefore, you must visit the official website of the college/ university to which you have applied. 

Most colleges may require you to upload normalized CUET scores and documents to prepare the CUET cut-off and merit list. 

Once you upload the normalized score and requested document, the merit list will be prepared, through which you will learn if your candidature is accepted or rejected by the college. Only those who score above the cut-off will be shortlisted and called for the counseling session.

The CUET cut off list is prepared, taking a number of factors into consideration like the number of seats for the course, number of students who applied, score obtained, the previous year cut-off trends, and your category. 

What should be your safe score to get admission to Delhi University? Let's find out! 

The CUET result 2022 was released on September 15, 2022, at around 10 PM by the conducting body NTA. It is the most awaited result of the year as nearly 9,68,201 candidates were expecting their CUET scores to join prestigious colleges like DU, JMI, AMU, and so forth.

Ideally, once the results are out, the respective universities accepting CUET scores prepare their CUET cut off list.  

Top colleges like AMU, DU, BHU, and JNU have started the second phase of the admission process, after which the merit list will be published based on the CUET Cut off 2022 followed by the counseling process. 

Cut off marks are the minimum qualifying scores you must possess in order to be shortlisted through the CUET entrance exam. The cut off marks vary for each category for admission into different undergraduate programs in these CUET colleges.

Let's understand the factors affecting the CUET Cut off 2022, and the expected CUET Cut off 2022 discussed in the article.

Expected CUET 2022 Cut Off

Usually, the cut off marks are released post-declaration of CUET Result 2022. Once you have an idea of the expected cut off, you will know if you are likely to get a seat in the desired college. 

As the exam is conducted for the very first time, there is no official announcement regarding the CUET cut off 2022 marks for the Common Universities Entrance Test. 

However, you can check the expected cut off marks for different categories provided by our expert team from Supergrads.

CUET Cut off 2022 Calculation

Once the CUET result is announced, you have to keep note of the following to calculate the cut-off scores, which is explained below: 

CUET Result has 2 components they are raw score and NTA score (Percentile) 

Normalization will be implemented while computing the CUET scores. The concept is thoroughly explained in the video by our expert. 

Let's check how these normalized marks are calculated on a common scale using the equipercentile method in a given subject. This involves four steps.

  • 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.

Expected Delhi University CUET Cut off 2022

We can expect the Delhi university to have the following CUET Cut off list: 

North Campus Caste Require Score to make to the cut off list
General Merit 720/800
OBC 610/800
SC/ ST 600/800
South Campus Caste Require Score to make to the cut off list
General Merit 600/800
OBC 550/800
SC/ ST 450-500/800
