The National Testing Agency has released the CUET-UG 2022 results and it was found that the English paper has the highest number of 100 percentile scorers.
In the CUET-UG 2022 exam, more candidates have scored 95 percentile in English than on any other paper. English has 8,236 100 percentile scorers across all CUET subjects. This indicates that admission to Delhi University\’s BA English (Honours) program will be tough this year.
A total of 3,100 students had taken admission to the BA English (Honours) program last year across 46 DU-affiliated colleges. This was based on the Class 12 board exam performance. The highest number of candidates appeared in the subjects of English, General Test, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics.
It was found that English was the easiest paper while Physics and Mathematics were the toughest. Physics had the smallest number of 95 percentile scorers. 33,627 candidates scored 95 percentile in English followed by 24,030 candidates on the general test, 12,179 candidates on chemistry, 11,942 candidates on mathematics and 11,329 candidates in physics.
The cut-off marks to score 95 percentile in maths and physics is much lower than in English. A candidate requires only 105 marks out of 200 or 52.5% to secure the 95 percentile in physics. The cut-off mark for the 95 percentile in maths is 51.5% or 103 out of 200 marks.
For English, 92.5% or 185 out of 200 marks is required for a 95 percentile score. However, until all the students submit their CUET scores and their preferences, it will be hard to figure out what a candidate\’s chances for a particular college and program may be. However, according to the result analysis, the competition is higher.
