CAT 2019 Result Released: Download Your Score Card Now; Check Cut offs for Admission Options with IIMs & Top B-schools

Your CAT Score card contains two major scores – CAT Scaled Score and CAT percentile corresponding to these CAT scores. The core marks that you obtained in CAT are not visible in the CAT score Vs Percentile display on your score card.

 

With the release of CAT 2019 Result at 11 AM on January 4, 2020 for 2,09,926 test takers who appeared in CAT 2019 exam on November 24, 2019 in morning or afternoon slots, the picture has become clear on Raw CAT marks vs percentile calculation and the Scaled CAT score vs Percentile calculation.

 

CAT Score Vs Percentile: 3 Key Components
Before knowing how much of your CAT score is required for 99 percentile in CAT, it is better to understand the key components in the process to convert your CAT score into percentile score.

 

CAT Marking Scheme Vs Percentile Score

Raw Marks in CAT Exam
Scaled Score in CAT Exam
CAT Percentile Score
+3 Marks for each right answer
-1 Mark for each wrong answer (only for MCQs)
Maximum marks in CAT-300
You can check your CAT marks with the CAT answer keys released by IIMs with the help of above calculation
 
IIMs conduct CAT in Two Slots
CAT question paper difficulty Level in Both the Slots may differ
IIMs use Score Equating and Normalization process for both slots on the basis of  different sets of test papers
The scaled score is arrived on the basis of this normalization process
CAT Scaled score may be more than your raw CAT marks or it may remain below your raw CAT marks
Percentile Score in CAT is the total percentage of the candidates who score equal to or less than the candidate in question.
CAT percentile is related to relative performance of the candidate in CAT exam and not the actual performance
Thus, the candidates scoring 80 percentile & above refer to the candidates who are top 20% CAT test takers

While most of the IIMs and other top B-schools consider CAT percentile score in shortlisting, they award weightage to CAT score in final selection process.

 

Candidates are keen to know your CAT score and the corresponding CAT percentile to get admission in top IIMs. Besides, please note that it is not only the overall CAT score and percentile, but also the CAT section wise score and required minimum percentile which is also very important to clear the sectional cut offs in IIMs. Experts at MBAUniverse.com and other top CAT preparation institutes have prepared the overall CAT score Vs percentile and CAT section wise score vs percentile for different range of score on the basis of the conversion formula of CAT score to percentile.
