CAT 2015 Score Card looks like this:
On the basis of the CAT 2015 Result, the 19 IIMs will announce the shortlist of candidates based on their admission criteria and CAT 2015 cutoff. The shortlisted candidates have to appear for Written Ability Test and Personal Interview rounds. The new IIMs conduct a Common Admission Process consisting of Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI) rounds.
Soon after the results will be declared, the important thing for the candidates will be CAT 2015 Cutoff. Cutoff refers to the minimum score or percentile which a candidate must secure to get shortlisted by the participating institute for the next rounds of the selection process. While the top B-schools will have a higher range of CAT 2015 cutoffs, 90+ percentile, the mid rung B-schools’ cutoffs range from 75 to 80 percentile and that of the lower rung B-schools is around 50 percentiles.

Normalization and Shortlisting at IIMs:
According to the normalization process announced by IIM-A officials, the scores of CAT 2015 results have been adjusted for location and scale differences of score distributions across different test forms. Besides normalization across different forms, the result prepared for CAT 2015 has been further normalized across different sections and the scaled scores obtained by this process have been converted into percentiles. The same percentile will be used as final results for shortlisting by IIMs and other top B-schools accepting Cat scores in India, IIM officials said.
IIM selection process:
After CAT 2015 results, separate shortlist will be announced by different IIMs for next stage of selection process which will include GD-PI and WAT depending on the selection criteria of different B-schools. “Each IIM will send interview letters to the short-listed candidates directly. The criteria for short-listing vary from IIM to IIM,” officials said.
While the scores of CAT 2015 is given due weightage, different IIMs also use academic performance of the candidates, relevant work experience, and other similar inputs in short listing and ranking of candidates at various stages of the admission process.

Dinesh, CAT is the entrance examination for admission to all the 20 IIMs and more than 1000 participating Institutions which include India's top B-Schools. So the competition is tight and you need to prepare as hard as possible. No time is early for preparing for an exam like CAT. IIMs do not have a specific syllabus for CAT. An assumption is drawn based on previous question papers. So, it inviolves Mathematical formulae and analytical thinking. For being good at these, you need to start preparing as early as possible. You are eligible for appearing for CAT once you are in your final year. So, if you start from this year as well, you can get into a decent top B-School.
If you want to ask
engineers are eligible for CAT exam then yes engineers are eligible for CAT exam. For CAT either you should be in final year of graduation or have passed your graduation.
check detailed eligibility for CAT
You can't use current year marks or rank to get an admission in coming year as it will be unfair to other candidates as your paper features may be different with theirs like it might be a easy paper when you gave and in the coming year if paper gets hard then that will change the evaluation process differently. It will be even unfair to you. So the board don't entertain these kind of forwarding previous year results for next year to get an admission.
If you want to get an admission in year 2020 then you have to appear the exam in year 2020 as you gave this year. You have to do each and every step and follow the process as a normal candidates does in 1st attempt. like you can take you are giving it as a fresh.
Hope it helps!
