Calculation of Score and Rank

To know how IIT Bombay prepare and compiles the UCEED result follow the content below:

Evaluation of marks: The score of the examination is calculated on the basis of the marking scheme. Marks in part A are used for shortlisting candidates. To do so, a cut off is determined for this section.

The cut off for Part A is decided on the basis of the formula below:

UCEED 2021 Part A Cut Off = X + yΣ


  • X is the average marks obtained by all the candidates in Part A.
  • Σ is the standard deviation.
  • y is total number of seats.

Based on the cutoff score decided for Part A, the candidates are shortlisted.

Evaluation of Part B scores: Now, shortlisted candidates are evaluated based on Part B of the examination. The evaluation of Part-B will be done manually by at least two evaluators separately and independently

  • If the difference <= 12 marks (20%), a simple average of the two examiners will be considered.
  • If the difference > 12 marks (20%), the answer sheet of Part-B will be evaluated by a third examiner (and so on until the difference <= 20%).
  • A simple average of the closest of 2 evaluators will be selected as the final marks.

Total score and rank: Total UCEED score is calculated by adding the marks obtained in Part-A and Part-B. This total score is used to prepare the final result/rank. All candidates who get rank, are UCEED 2021 qualified.
