Equi-percentile system | CUET score normalisation explained

The CUET UG 2023 results were released on July 15 after which UGC Chairman M Jagadeesh Kumar explained the CUET score normalisation process, also called the equi-percentile system.

The National Testing Agency (NTA) recently declared the results of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) UG 2023 on July 15. However, candidates are uncertain about how their performance will be compared since the tests were conducted on different days. To address these concerns, UGC Chairman Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar explained the normalisation process for CUET UG results, emphasizing the need for a fair comparison among candidates.


Understanding the Equi-Percentile System:


The equi-percentile system utilized in CUET UG ensures a fair comparison and ranking of candidates who appeared for the test on different days and in multiple sessions.


Under this system, the percentile for each candidate is calculated based on their raw marks compared to others in the same session. This process is repeated across multiple sessions for the same subject. Sessions with fewer candidates are combined with larger sessions. The percentiles are then equated and converted into normalised marks. These normalised marks can be used in the same manner as in single-session exams.


Consideration of Skill Elements:


Subjects like sports and fine arts have skill elements that cannot be solely assessed based on percentiles. To address this issue, the weightage of the raw marks of the skill element can be added to the remaining weightage of the regularised marks. This ensures that candidates’ overall performance is considered, taking into account both their subject knowledge and specific skill elements.


Highlights of CUET UG 2023:


The results of CUET UG 2023 revealed that over 22,000 candidates achieved a perfect 100 percentile score. English had the highest number of perfect scores, followed by biology. Notably, humanities and commerce subjects had more percentile scores than science subjects, except for biology.
