The CAT 2015 exam was conducted in a single window in two sessions on November 29, 2015. After the exam, the CAT 2015 results will declare the sectional scaled scores, overall scaled score and overall percentile. Each question carried 3 marks. For each wrong answer, there is a penalty of 1 mark. No marks were awarded or deducted on unattempted questions. This year the non-MCQs have been introduced, which will not have any negative marking.
As per the IIM-A officials, the CAT 2015 scores will be subject to normalization, “The Normalization process to be implemented shall adjust for location and scale differences of score distributions across different forms. After normalization across different forms the scores shall be further normalized across different sections and the scaled scores obtained by this process shall be converted into percentiles for purposes of shortlisting”, says CAT 2015 official website.
What is Normalization Process of CAT 2015?
A normalization process is followed to ensure fairness and equity in comparison of performances of the candidates across different test sessions. The CAT 2015 official website describes the CAT 2015 Normalization as, “The process of Normalization is an established practice for comparing candidate scores across multiple Forms and is similar to those being adopted in other large educational selection tests conducted in India such as Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE)”.
Method of Normalization
As per the officials, for normalization across sections is a sort of percentile equivalence method that will be used.
After normalization across different forms the scores will be further normalized across different sections and the scaled scores obtained by this process will be converted into percentiles for purposes of shortlisting. For purposes of reporting, Scaled Scores for each section (Section I: Quantitative Ability, Section II: Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning and Section III: Verbal Ability) and Total along with the Percentiles shall be published.

The exam will be divided into three sections namely, Quantitative Aptitude (QA), Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DILR) and Verbal and Reading Comprehension (VRC). Candidates will not be allowed to switch from one section to another while answering questions in a section.
QA and VRC will have 34 questions each, and DILR will have 32 questions. Some questions in each section may not be of multiple choice type, instead, candidate have to type direct answers on the screen.

My branch is Electrical Engineering and in my college i have very less chance of placements . So what jobs should i go for so that it could be counted as work experience if I want to go for CAT exam ?
For MBA , work experience is not compulsory. You can get into MBA colleges without a work experience. It's like good food placed in a good plate. If you have a work experience you will get a good job or with more package . Otherwise it will depend on your academics.
