How is UCEED Cut Off 2024 Determined?

IIT Bombay has altered the formula to calculate the UCEED cut-off. The new formula to calculate the cut-off marks is 𝜇 + (𝜎⁄2) = 𝛿, where 𝜇 and 𝜎 are the average marks and standard deviation of marks obtained by all the aspirants in Part A of the UCEED Exam Preparation.

Note that the values of 𝜇 and 𝜎 will be rounded off for the first decimal place. You must fulfill a cut-off score if you belong to the reserved category.

The cut-off marks for different categories are calculated as mentioned below:

  • 0.9𝛿 for OBC (Non-Creamy Layer)
  • 0.9𝛿 for EWS
  • 0.5𝛿 for SC/ST
  • 0.5𝛿 for PwD

Where 𝛿 is the UCEED cutoff mark for the open category. 

  • Part-B paper of those candidates who are not shortlisted shall not be evaluated.
  • All shortlisted candidates will get a rank.
  • The evaluated answer booklets of Part B will not be shared with the candidates.
  • Answer booklets of Part – B will be preserved ONLY for three months from the date of declaration of UCEED results. 
  • The evaluation of Part B will be done manually by at least two expert evaluators separately and independently.
  • If the difference is 12 marks (20%), the answer sheet of Part B will be evaluated by a third expert examiner (and so on until the difference <= 20%).
  • A simple average of the closest of two evaluators will be selected as the final marks.
  • If the difference in marks between the moderator and either of the examiners is the same, then the higher average will be considered for the calculation of the score.
  • The total UCEED score will be calculated by adding the marks obtained in Part A and Part B.
  • This total score will be used to prepare the final result/rank. 
  • The UCEED 2024 Question Paper and Draft Answer Key will be released on the UCEED website.
