What does your CEED rank mean?

Students find themselves confused after they get their CEED ranks. They try to figure out what does their CEED rank mean in terms of getting admissions in different institutes. So, let’s discuss all that here.


Admissions

CEED examination is conducted by IIT Bombay. It is a qualifying examination for admission to Master of Design and PhD in Design. Qualifying CEED examination does not guarantee admission to any of the result sharing Institutes. All Ranks hold true based on submission and verification of original certificates at the time of admission. Admitting Institutes will verify the eligibility, the category certificates and other documents along with CEED Score. The CEED 2021 score is valid up to 7th March 2022.


Does everybody get marks and rank?

The marks and ranks are released only for those students who gets qualified. Such students can view their score card and even download it from the official CEED website.

Qualifying marks cut off is also mentioned on the website according to different categories.

E.g. this is how Qualifying marks cut off for the year 2021 looks like.



How is the final CEED score calculated?

There are two sections in the exam viz. Part-A and Part-B. In these sections, marks are given separately.

But to calculate the final CEED score, the distribution is not equal.

The final score is calculated as 0.25 x (Part A marks) + 0.75 x (Part B marks)

The rank is given on the merit of these marks obtained by the candidates.

Other than that, ranks are also separated through different categories.


So, what does the score card exactly contain?

The score card has –

1) Candidate’s photograph, signature, name and roll number.

2) Number of candidates appeared and number of candidates qualified

3) A table showing Qualifying marks (in Part A) as per the category

4) Marks scored by candidate in Part A and Part B

5) CEED Score

6) Rank

7) Notes (Please read the notes carefully)

This rank will hold true at the time of admission subjected to the submission and verification of the relevant original documents.

Compensatory time, if availed by PwD candidate, is marked by * in score card against the PwD category.
