 The following steps were followed by the CAT Exam authority to calculate the percentile score of the candidate:

  • 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.

CAT Percentile Calculation Process

  • Suppose the total number of appeared candidates = 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.
