Q. What should students do after the announcement of CUET results?
Since there is no common counseling or common admission process to fill the seats, the action will now be shifted to the participating universities. “As soon as we can publish the results, the same data will also be simultaneously available for the 90 universities that adopted CUET for admission to their degree programs. From this point, the NTA has no role,” said a senior NTA official.
University Grants Commission (UGC) chairman M Jagadesh Kumar suggests that students now visit the websites and admission portals of the colleges they are interested in getting into. “Students should visit the admission portals of individual universities and fill their online applications. along with the required documentation. NTA will provide students’ scores to participating universities for verification,” he said in The Indian Express.

Since this is DU’s first year of admitting students through an entrance test, there are no precedents to help us answer this question. According to Sanjeev Singh, DU’s Joint Dean Admissions, it is too early to make any inferences about what kind of CUET scores may appear in the merit lists of various programs.
“The process has just begun. Also looking at the high number of students with 100th percentile in say CUET English paper will not tell us much about merit lists in advance because this will not be determined for any program with one subject but with a combination of subjects,” he said. said.

Q. I am not satisfied with my CUET score. Can I challenge my results?

For complaints related to admissions, students should first write to the University where they have applied. If the problem is not resolved, students can file their complaint on UGC’s E-Samadhan portal for redressal,” Kumar added.
Q. How will my CUET score determine my admission to a college or university?
Each participating university will prepare its own merit list based on the applicants’ CUET score. Different universities may adopt different ways of arriving at merit. For example, the University of Delhi will calculate the merit of a candidate (for a specific program or group of programmes) by simply adding the normalized marks of the four subjects or papers given as per the eligibility criteria of a program or programmes. determined Candidates are advised to check with individual universities how they are making their merit lists. However, UGC has clarified that universities and colleges will use the standardized marks and not the percentile.
Q. Why has NTA normalized my marks? Doesn’t that put me at a disadvantage?
“The raw scores have been normalized to provide a level playing field for students as they wrote tests in the same subject on different days,” Kumar said. He also added that students need not worry about these differences as the normalization formula was prepared by a group of experts from the Indian Statistical Institute, IIT Delhi and Delhi University.
Q. Do my class 12 marks no longer play a role in my college admission?
Class 12 board marks have little paper. However, some universities like DU will use your Board marks, as a last resort, in case two or more candidates are tied on the same CUET score and have applied to the same program and university.
Q. When do I start my university life?
“Once the CUET-UG scores are announced, it usually takes around 6 weeks for the universities to finalize the results as they may issue the first list, second list etc. until most seats are filled. Be it October last week or the first week of November, most colleges can try to start their new academic session,” Kumar said.
