Calculate Percentile using CAT Result

As per the CAT marking scheme, +3 marks are awarded for every correct answer. For every incorrect answer, a -1 mark is deducted from the candidate’s score. There was no negative marking for the TITA Questions, even if answered incorrectly. Check the CAT Answer Key to know your performance in the exam.

The following steps were followed by the authority to calculate the percentile score of the candidate to prepare the candidate's CAT Result:

  • Each correct and incorrect response is calculated with the marks they carry (+3 for correct, -1 for incorrect)
  • The scores of all the 3 sections are calculated individually in the CAT Result, and then all of them are added to find the overall raw score obtained by the candidate. Go through all the details regarding CAT Admit Card.
  • The scores (both overall and section-wise) are then normalized to conclude a Scaled Score in CAT Result 2022
  • The normalized scores are then converted to percentiles and represented on the CAT Score Card.

There are mainly the below 3 important steps in CAT Percentile Calculation.

  • Firstly, section-wise scores are estimated, and then overall scores are calculated in CAT Result.
  • Both overall and section-wise raw scores are standardized to compute the CAT Scaled Scores. Stay updated with the official CAT Notification.
  • Lastly, these normalized scores are altered into CAT Percentile.

Calculation of Raw Score in CAT Score Card 2022

The formulas to calculate the Raw Score in CAT Result 2022 are as follows.

  • CAT Score = No. of Correct Answer * 3 - (Number of Incorrect Answers * 1)

Percentile Calculation Process in CAT Result

The Exam Authority calculates the CAT 2022 Percentile in the below-mentioned process.

  • Suppose the total number of candidates appeared = N. Based on the scores received in a section, one candidate gets the CAT Rank R. If 2 candidates have achieved the same scores, then the same ranks will be assigned.
  • Calculate the CAT Percentile P, for a candidate who has scored and ranked R using the formula P= (N-r)/ N ) *100
  • Round off the CAT Percentile P. For example, 99.995 is rounded off to 100, but if the percentile is less than 99.995, it will be rounded off to 99.99. Check CAT Syllabus and be prepared for all the chapters well.

Score Normalization Process in IIM CAT Result

The CAT Result scores are normalized to ensure a fair assessment procedure. The CAT Normalization Process adjusts for scale differences of score distributions in different forms.
