Kumar said the scores have been standardized to provide a level playing field to students who took the same subject exam on different days or in different shifts.
The results of the first edition of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) UG have been announced at the beginning of the day.
“The rank lists will be prepared by the universities using normalized NTA scores and not the percentile basis. The scores have been normalized to provide a level playing field to students as they wrote a test in the same subject in different days,” Kumar said.
“The normalization of CUET scores has been done separately for each subject for which the examination was conducted in multiple shifts,” he added.
The normalization formula using the ‘equipercentile method’ has been decided by a panel comprising professors from the Indian Statistical Institute, IIT Delhi and Delhi University.
