If you are looking for more details on MBAUniverse.com CAT Percentile Predictor, read on…We first explain to you how IIMs actually calculate CAT percentile and then how we do it.

 

How IIMs calculate CAT Percentile?
The methodology adopted by IIMs for calculation of percentile score of a candidate is as per the steps described below. They are followed to calculate the CAT 2020 overall and sectional percentile scores obtained by a candidate. While illustrating the percentile score calculation process, QA section is chosen as an example. Similar process is followed for the overall percentile score calculation and for calculation of percentile in the other two sections, i.e. DILR and VARC in CAT 2020.

  • Step 1: Calculate the total number of candidates (N) who appeared for CAT (i.e. including morning, afternoon and evening sessions)
  • Step 2: Assign a rank (r), based on the scaled scores obtained in the QA section, to all candidates who appeared for CAT. In the case of two or more candidates obtaining identical scaled scores in the QA section, assign identical ranks to all those candidates.

As an illustration suppose exactly two candidates obtain the highest scaled score in the QA section, then both of those candidates are assigned a rank of 1. Moreover, the candidate(s) obtaining the second highest scaled score in the QA section are assigned a rank of 3 and so on.

  • Step 3: Calculate the percentile score (P) of a candidate with rank (r) in the QA section as: P = ( (N-r) ) x 100
  • Step 4: Round off the calculated percentile score (P) of a candidate up to two decimal points. For example, all percentile scores greater than or equal to 99.995 are rounded off to 100, all percentile scores greater than or equal to 99.985 but strictly less than 99.995 are rounded off to 99.99 and so on.

CAT Percentile Predictor Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q. What method IIMs use to calculate CAT percentile?
Ans.
 The methodology adopted by IIMs to calculate CAT percentile is to first calculate the total number of candidates, then a rank based on scaled score is assigned to arrive at the right calculation of section wise percentile score. 

 

Q. Is the CAT percentile predicted in decimal points? 
Ans. 
Yes, more than 2 lakh candidates appear in CAT exam so the percentile prediction after due calculation goes upto 4-5 decimal points. However, IIMs while declaring the CAT percentile rounds it off upto two decimal points.

 

Q. How can I predict CAT Percentile after the exam?
Ans. Yes, by using a good CAT percentile predictor, you may arrive at nearest CAT percentile.

 

Q. What are the important inputs I will need to get my CAT percentile predicted?
Ans. You should be aware about the total section wise attempts, correct and incorrect answers section wise as well as for MCQs and Non-MCQs to know your nearest CAT percentile

 

Q. When should I use the CAT percentile predictor?
Ans. The best time to use the CAT percentile predictor is immediately after your CAT exam is over as at that time you can recall your performance in CAT exam.
