CUET UG 2022 Result: Toppers list with marks, prep tips, course and college preference
The Indian Express spoke to nine of the 12 toppers who scored 100 percentile in five subjects to find that all are students of CBSE-affiliated schools and want to study at Delhi University. Among them, political science honours is the most preferred programme. Read on to find out their marks, exam preparation tips and their college preferences
Twelve candidates have topped CUET UG 2022 by scoring 100 percentile in at least five papers. The Indian Express spoke to nine of them to find that all are students of CBSE-affiliated schools and would like to study at Delhi University. Majority of them want to study political science. BCom, History, psychology and economics are the other programme preferences. Since they had already done reasonably well in their Class 12 Board exam, we asked if CUET opened any new doors for them. To this, many said that they are now sure of securing a seat in coveted colleges like Shri Ram College of Commerce which would have earlier closed admissions at unrealistic cut-off marks like 98-99%.

Exam prep tips
I prepared for CUET, but that was mainly self-study. I revised what I had already studied for my Board exams. I feel the papers were fairly easy for anyone who has had her concepts clear from the start.
Is CUET helpful?
I think I now have a good shot at getting into SRCC. Although I scored well in my Board exams, I feel my English score (92%) was pulling my best-of-four average down to 97.75% and that would not have been enough to land a seat at SRCC. CBSE’s Term 1 English paper was vague, and I don’t think students of other boards would have faced the same problem. I feel CUET has given everyone a level-playing field
Programme and college preference: BCom (Honours), SRCC, Delhi University

Exam prep tips
“Most of the questions were from our Board syllabus, and the fact that we had two board exams, one of which was MCQ based, was a huge help. I used various MCQ-based guidebooks to solve papers, which was helpful in my preparation”
Is CUET helpful?
“The execution needs to be fine-tuned, but it’s a good way of streamlining the process and providing a level field for all students. Earlier, there were students from different boards, and there was disparity because of the marking standards, but now there is more uniformity”
