CAT Normalization Process 2019 - IIM Kozikhode has released the process for normalization for CAT 2019. The steps that are to be followed help in the calculation of overall and sectional percentile scores which are obtained by the candidate. Normalization process will change for location and scale differences of score distributions across different forms. IIM Kozhikode will conduct CAT exam 2019 on November 24. In the CAT normalization process 2019, students are scaled on the basis of location, test slots and scale differences, etc. The normalization process 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). The CAT 2019 result will display the scaled scores for each section along with percentiles. The practice is followed in order to equate the scores and ensure that none of the candidates from either slot be in an advantaged or disadvantaged position. This process is used for almost all the entrance examinations that are held in multiple slots.

Steps to Calculate the Scaled Score of CAT 2019

Following steps are followed to calculate the scaled score of candidates in each of the three sections i.e. QA, VARC and DILR in CAT 2019. An overall scaled score is obtained by adding scaled scores of these three sections. While illustrating the scaling process, the QA section is chosen as an example. A similar process is valid for the other two sections, i.e. DILR and VARC.

Step 1: Calculate the mean and the standard deviation (SD) of the raw scores in QA sections for all candidates appearing in the forenoon session.

Let Mean = M1 and SD = S1 and G1 = M1 + S1

Step 2: Calculate the mean and the standard deviation (SD) of the raw scores in QA sections for all candidates appearing in the afternoon session.

Let Mean = M2 and Sd = S2, G2 = M2 + S2

Step 3: Calculate the mean and the standard deviation (SD) of the raw scores in QA sections for all candidates appearing in CAT (i.e. Including both forenoon and afternoon session).

Let Mean = M and SD = S, G = M + S.

Step 4: Calculate the mean raw score in the QA section of the top 0.1% candidates in the forenoon session and denote it by M1^0.1.

Step 5: Calculate the mean raw score in the QA section of the top 0.1% candidates in the afternoon session and denote it by M2^0.1.

Step 6: Calculate the mean raw score in the QA section of the top 0.1% candidates appearing in CAT (i.e. Including both forenoon and afternoon session) and denote it by M^0.1.

Suppose now ABC is a candidate who appeared in the Forenoon session and her/his raw score in QA section is R. Then, the scaled score of ABC in QA, say R is given by:

1562941272492

In case ABC is a candidate who appeared in the afternoon session and her/his raw score in QA section is R. Then, the scaled score of ABC in QA, say R is given by:

1562941272741

Note: Similarly methodology applied for computation of scaled score for other sections (DILR and VARC)

i have got 82 in 10th, 55 in 12th and 68 in graduation what should i score in cat to get good b with avg salary of 8,9lkhs

Rehan Alam Student Expert 18th Oct, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

You have to score a minimum of 99 percentile to get at least one good IIM call as your academics are not good. You could get a call from new IIMs if you score 99 percentile as the top tier IIMs will not give you a chance due to your poor acads.

Colleges you could look for are like IIM Nagpur, Kashipur, Shillong, etc. These colleges if you study well will provide you with a good package of 10-12 lpa.

Hope this helps. Thank you.

i have got 90 percentile in cat but my academic scores are quite low 80 percent in 10th,55 percent in 12 from bihar board and 65 percent in graduation from bihar board, would i get good clg

Rehan Alam Student Expert 18th Oct, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

You will not be able to get any good business school like top IIMs, MDI, IIFT, or FMS. However, you can still get a good MBA tier 3/4 college if you increase your percentile to 98 percentile.

However, according to your grads, you must not be disappointed if you don't get a call at 99 because your marks are not good.

Hope for the best. Thank you.

what is the syllabus of CAT exam ..is it stream wise ...? which stream students is eligible for CAT ?

Papeya Dubey Student Expert 18th Oct, 2019

Hello,


Eligibility for CAT is graduate in any discipline from a recognized university with 50% aggregate, for SC/ST/PwD it's 45%.


So, people from any background can apply for CAT, provided they have required aggregate at their graduation level against their category.



Now, coming to the syllabus for CAT, there's no specific syllabus for CAT, one needs to rely on past years sample papers to get a fair idea about the pattern and weightage given to each topic and section.In general, questions are mostly from middle school level English and Mathematics.



There are mainly three sections in CAT-



Logical Reasoning & Data Interpretation which includes topics such as Tables, Graphs, Data Caselets, Seating Arrangement, Blood Relation, Syllogism etc.



Quantitative Aptitude which includes topics such as Geometry, Algebra, Time and Work, Mensuration, Number System etc.



Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension which includes topics such as Sentence completion, Questions based on reading comprehension, Para-jumbles & para-summar, inferences etc.



To know the detailed topics, kindly go through the following link-
