Candidates will be able to download and print their scorecards from the website using their individual login credentials. Please note that the UCEED 2020 scorecard will not be sent to the examinees via mail or post; they will have to download and print the same from the official website.
Along with the UCEED 2020 result, a Rank List will also be published featuring the all-India ranks of the qualified candidates. However, a note of caution for aspirants in this context: just qualifying UCEED 2020 or featuring in the Rank List does not ensure admission into the institute of choice. Candidates who qualify UCEED 2020 are required to apply separately for B. Des admissions and seats will be offered in order of merit in the respective category. UCEED 2020 score is valid only for admission in the academic year 2020-2021.
The participating institutes have a common application process for admission into their respective B. Des programs The UCEED Office at IIT Bombay will conduct the joint seat allocation process for shortlisted applicants.
There will be three rounds of seat allocation, though once all seats are filled, the allocation process will be closed. The seats will be allotted on the bases of applicants’ UCEED 2020 rank, category and choice of institutes.
The UCEED 2020 Rank list will be prepared based on the total marks secured in both Part-A and Part-B of the test. Only one comprehensive Rank List will be prepared, though, candidates will be able to view their category-wise standing from the results page. Please note that only candidates who score the prescribed minimum percentage in both Part-A and Part-B will feature in the UCEED 2020 Rank List. The minimum prescribed marks for each category is presented in the table below:
|Merit List||Minimum % of marks in each Section in Part-A and Part-B||Minimum Total Marks|
|Common rank list (CRL)||10%||100|
|OBC-NCL rank list||9%||90|
|SC rank list||5%||50|
|ST rank list||5%||50|
|PwD rank list||5%||50|
Given the above prescribed sectional marks to be scored in order to be included in the UCEED 2020 Rank List, the UCEED Committee reserves the right to decrease the minimum percentage of marks, section-wise as well as in the aggregate, such that 10×N ranks can be declared, where N is the total number of seats available.
In case two or more candidates secure the same total score, Rank is awarded by using the following tie-breaker rules, in the given order:

At the time of centralized counselling and admissions at the four participating institutes, seats allotted to foreign nationals will be supernumerary with a cap of 10% of the total available seats in the program.

Examinees who are OCI (Overseas Citizen of India)/ PIO (Person of Indian Origin) cardholders will be allocated seats under the Open category, but not supernumerary.
