How CUET 2022 percentile score is calculated
The NTA declared the CUET results 2022 based on the “Equipercentile method”. In this method, percentile for each candidate is calculated using the raw marks of the candidate as compared to the raw marks of others in the same session. This is done for every session across multiple days for the same subject.
To calculate the normalized marks across different sessions in a given subject, the percentile of each group of these students for each shift is calculated using the raw marks they have scored.
Let us say in a given shift, 100 students have appeared for the test. We sort their marks in decreasing order. Let us assume that one student among these 100 students has scored 87% marks. Now let us assume that 80 out 100 students have secured less than or equal to 87% marks. The percentile of this student with 87% marks would be 80/100=0⋅8. The percentile so calculated will always be between 0 and 1 and it is usually rounded off to the requisite number of decimal places.
