CUET offers 15 students a second chance for admission in their dream colleges at Delhi University

On September 16, the National Testing Agency (NTA) announced the names of 114 CUET toppers who scored in the 100th percentile in at least four or more subjects. The Indian Express they interviewed 103 of the 114 toppers to find 15 who had scored less than 95% in the Class 12 Board exam and now, thanks to CUET, have a second chance to study in Delhi University college (DU) that they chose.

Most CUET toppers want to study Political Science at Hindu College, which closed admissions to the program (for general category applicants) with a 100% cutoff last year. Other preferences include BA in Psychology, History and English.

Here are their details:

2021 cut: Admissions for unreserved seats in BA (Hons) Political Science closed 100% at Hindu College

Did you find CUET useful?

My Hindi marks in Board results were very low and this affected my overall percentage. My dream college is Hindu. In the absence of CUET, I could never have made it to Hindu College. Now I have a good chance to get into this university. I want to study Political Science. I think CUET should be taken forward in the coming years.

2021 cut: Admissions for unreserved places in BA (Hons.) Psychology 99% closed at Lady Shri Ram College

Did you find CUET useful?

Yes, CUET was helpful in honing skills for competitive exams like UPSC. I think this exam is a better judge of one’s ability and where we stand in the crowd. CUET as an exam was completely based on NCERT and I scored well without any coaching or tuition.

Board Exam: 93.80% (Humanities)

Program and university preference: BA (Hons.) History at St. Stephen’s College

Cut 2021: Admissions for unreserved seats in BA (Hons.) History closed at 98.25% in St. Stephen’s College

Did you find CUET useful?

I scored 94% in my term 1 paper of Class 12 Board exams which was not great compared to other CUET supervisors who scored 98% and above. Also, when you belong to the general category, a score of 94% does not get you admission in a top college. When CUET was announced, my term 1 exam was going on. When I met CUET, I realized that I had a chance, another chance to improve and score well. Now that I have scored well, I have significantly improved my chances of getting into top universities. I want to study History at St. Stephen’s College. Regarding the continuity of CUET in the coming years, there are positive and negative aspects. For this year’s CUET we had to prepare a lot because our class 12 syllabus has been reduced by 30%. By the time we finished the 2nd quarter, people had forgotten about the 1st. In the long run, CUET will be better if students have enough time and if schools don’t become coaching centers because education is not just about exams and marks.

Did you find CUET useful?

When the CBSE result was about to be announced, I was sure that it would come above 97%. However, due to a mistake, I got 70%. Rechecking takes a long time. I was lucky that CUET was considered this time. I worked really hard for this exam because I had to prove that 70% is not my score.

Did you find CUET useful?

It provides a single platform for all that is great, but exams should have been done earlier. I also believe that the 100th percentile has been scored by many candidates. I don’t know how much of an advantage I have.

First name: Semmozhi Ramesh

Did you find CUET useful?

Even though it’s the inaugural edition of the test and I had my CUET paper on the first day, I didn’t have any teething problems. I found that CUET was mostly based on what I had learned in school for my board exam and I felt quite comfortable with the test.

First name: Sunaina Lal

Board Exam: 94.40% (Humanities)

Program and university preference: BA (Hons.) Political Science from Hindu College

Term 2021: Admissions for unreserved BA (Hons.) Political Science seats are 100% closed at Hindu College

Did you find CUET useful?

Although there were some technical challenges in the beginning because it was a new exam, it ended up being beneficial for students like me. I was offered an opportunity to improve my score because I was not happy with my class 12 marks. The exam was introduced in an effort to create a level playing field so that students can compete fairly to maintain consistency. I personally went through the hassle of the CUET test being postponed due to technical glitches.

Program and university preference: BA (Hons.) Political Science from Hindu College

Term 2021: Admissions for unreserved BA (Hons.) Political Science seats are 100% closed at Hindu College

Did you find CUET useful?

I think CUET was helpful for me. Since I scored 100 percentile in all my subjects, I will be able to get into the college of your choice. For me, appearing for CUET was good because even though I scored well in class 12, it wasn’t good enough to get into top colleges. CUET has allowed me to do that. I believe that the CUET should be continued in the coming years as it gives certain advantages to the students. In particular, this year, the term 1 and 2 system has not been advantageous for me and many students. That’s why CUET went better for me and I also prepared better.

Did you find CUET useful?

My chances definitely improved with my CUET score. My sociology marks in the Board exam had a mistake in it, but I didn’t put it in to recheck because it would delay my result.
