How is CAT Exam Result Calculated 2023?

CAT exam result validity or CAT scores can be used for one academic year only. 

The CAT percentile is determined in three steps:

  • Three marks are given for each correct answer
  • One mark is subtracted for each erroneous answer
  • For other questions (not MCQs), incorrect answers have no negative marking.

According to the CAT exam pattern over the years.

Steps to Calculate CAT Percentile

The score for each candidate is first calculated section-by-section, and the overall score is then calculated by adding the section-by-section scores.

These section-by-section and overall results (raw scores) are then standardised for a scaled CAT score.

On the CAT scorecard 2022, percentiles based on the normalised scores are presented.

Step 1: Consider the total number of applicants who showed up for the morning, afternoon, and evening shifts of the IIM CAT.

Total no. of candidates = N

Step 2: Based on the scaled scores attained by candidates in all sections of all candidates who will appear for the CAT 2023, assign rank = R.

If two or more applicants receive the same scaled score in all sections, they will be given the same ranks.

For instance, both candidates will be given rank 1 if they receive the highest scaled CAT score. A rank of 3 will be given to the candidate(s) who received the second-highest scaled score.

Step 3: Now, as indicated below, calculate a candidate's percentile score (P) based on their rank (r):

  • P={(N-r)/ N }*100

Step 4: 

Now, round off the percentile score that was calculated (P). Up to two decimal places can be used for this.

For instance, all CAT percentile scores more than or equal to 99.995 are rounded to 100; all CAT percentile scores precisely less than 99.995 are rounded to 99.99, and so on.

CAT Normalization Process 2023

The CAT for the MBA test is given in several slots, so a normalisation technique is utilised to scale each candidate's score to make the marking process more equitable.

Parameters involving CAT normalisation are as follows: 

  • Highest score
  • Lowest score
  • Mean score
  • Median score
  • Top 10 percentiles
  • Lowest 10 percentiles
