How Is CAT Percentile Calculated?

As per the CAT exam pattern, three marks will be awarded for each correct answer, and one mark will be deducted for each incorrect answer. And no marks will be deducted for wrong answers in non-MCQ-type questions. The calculation of the CAT percentile includes the following steps:

  • First, the candidate’s score is evaluated section-wise and then the overall score is arrived at by totalling the section-wise scores.
  • Then, the section-wise and overall scores (raw scores) are normalized to arrive at a scaled CAT score.
  • The normalized scores are converted into percentiles which are reported on the scorecard.

 CAT Normalization Process

The CAT exam is conducted in three slots, and the difficulty level of each session varies from one to another. To ensure fairness in the marking process, the authorities follow a normalisation process. wherein the marks of every candidate are scaled to be on the same plane. The following are the parameters taken into consideration for CAT normalization:

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