The results of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET)-PG, for which 6.07 lakh candidates had registered, were announced on Monday, according to National Testing Agency (NTA) officials. Unlike CUET-UG, no normalisation of scores has been done for the postgraduate (PG) entrance, and universities will announce their rank lists on the basis of 'raw' marks and not normalised NTA scores.

"No normalisation of scores has been done in CUET-PG and the universities will prepare the rank lists on the basis of 'raw marks' and not NTA scores," UGC chief Jagadesh Kumar told PTI. In CUET UG, results of which were announced on September 16, the scores were normalised and the University Grants Commission (UGC) had announced that rank lists will be prepared on the basis of normalised National Testing Agency


Asked about the reasons behind no normalisation of scores in CUET PG, Mr Kumar said, "The PG exam was held in a single sitting for the majority of subjects, while in the UG exam, the test was conducted in different phases and shifts. Hence, scores had to be normalised to provide a level playing field for all candidates."

The "normalisation" of marks in CUET UG had left several aspirants disappointed as they found their marks reduced from their original scores, making it difficult for them to get admission in their dream colleges. According to NTA, the performance of every candidate was evaluated using the "equi-percentile method". Under this method, normalised marks of every candidate were calculated using the percentiles of each group of students in a given session across multiple days for the same subject.
