How is CAT Percentile Calculated?

In CAT 2021, for every correct answer, +3 marks are awarded and for every incorrect answer, -1 mark is deducted from the score of the candidate. For the non-MCQ type questions, there was no negative marking even if answered incorrectly. The following steps were followed by the CAT authority to calculate the percentile 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 and then all of them are added to find the overall raw score obtained by the candidate
  • The scores (both overall and section-wise) are then normalized to conclude a Scaled Score
  • The normalized scores are then converted to percentiles and represented on the CAT scorecard

What is Normalization of CAT Scores?

CAT 2021 will be conducted in 3 slots on 28 November 2021. The difficulty level of questions asked in a slot is likely to vary from the questions asked in other 2 slots. Thus, the slot-wise scores obtained by candidates is normalized in order to maintain equality. The following parameters are taken into consideration for Normalizing the scores:

  • Lowest Score
  • Highest Score

  • Median Score
  • Last 10 Percentiles
  • Top 10 Percentiles
