NTA has evaluated the performance of every candidate using the equi-percentile method. This method calculates the normalised marks of each candidate using the percentiles of each group of students in a given session across multiple days for the same subject. Sadhana Parashar, Senior Director, National Testing Agency (NTA) said, “This will help us identify the best performer in each subject and group of students.”
The National Testing Agency (NTA) has been established with the sole purpose of conducting entrance exams for higher education institutions. The NTA will be responsible for registering candidates, conducting the tests, hosting answer keys, inviting challenges, finalising answer keys, preparing and declaring results, and hosting scorecards. This will ensure a more streamlined and efficient process for students and institutions alike.
A merit list will be prepared by participating universities and organisations. The universities will decide about their individual counselling on the basis of the scorecard of CUET (UG) – 2023 provided by NTA,” she added. “We are expecting a great response from the universities this year,” she said.
The CUET-UG is the second-largest entrance exam in the country. In its first edition, more than 12 lakh students had registered for the exam and nearly 10 lakh had submitted their applications.
