XAT scores compared to CAT

In fact low score in XAT 2017 could lead to high percentile as against CAT scores in calculation of percentile score.

While each question in CAT 2016 carried 3 marks with 1/3 negative marking, XAT 2017 carried 1 mark for each correct answer and negative marking of ΒΌ mark. XAT is considered as a more difficult exam as compared to CAT. While a scaled score of 200+ marks in CAT 2016 could award above 99 percentile, it is expected that a score of about 35-36 marks in XAT 2017 would award a percentile score of 99+.

The cut offs in the B-schools who accept both CAT and XAT scores also differ. If the CAT cut off is around 90 percentile, the XAT cut off remains about 85-86.
