LUCKNOW Lucknow boy Prabuddh Dubey scored 799.64 out of 800 in the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) UG Result 2023, the result of which was declared on Saturday. He got 100 percentile in four subjects — English, History, Political Science and Economics.
“The results have paved the way for me to get admission in the best colleges of Delhi University. I may go to St Stephen’s College to pursue a BA program or another option is to take admission at Jamia Millia Islamia and study Economics (Honours) at undergraduate level,” said Prabuddh, who passed class 12 from Study Hall and was mentored at CUET Possible.
He added, “CUET makes a lot of sense as it is a single window to get a chance to study in the best of the colleges in the country. It is slightly disadvantageous for students coming from ICSE, ISC or UP Board as the National Testing Agency (NTA) that conducts exams follows NCERT syllabus that is advantageous for CBSE students.” However, he pointed out a few anomalies that he noticed in CUET system, especially where some of the options given in the exam were wrong and students struggled to get it corrected.
