CAT Normalization Process 2019 - IIM Kozikhode 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 conducted 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.
LATEST: Objection form to CAT answer key 2019 has been released by IIM Kozhilode . Candidates can raise objection to any particular answer till December 6, 2019. CAT 2019 result will be declared on January 6, 2020.

What is CAT Normalization process 2019?

The official website explains the CAT 2019 Normalization as “CAT 2019 will be conducted in two slots. Two different Test Forms shall be administered in two Test Slots. In order to ensure integrity and equity in comparison of candidates' performances across different test slots, the scores of the candidates shall be subjected to a process of Normalization. The Normalization process will adjust for location and differences of scaled score distributions across different forms. The scaled scores obtained by this process will be converted into percentiles for purposes of shortlisting the candidates.

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)

How to Calculate CAT Percentile 2019

IIM Kozhikode, the conducting body of CAT 2019 on September 16 has released the process of how to calculate CAT percentile 2019. The process has been explained in detail with examples along with the formula to calculate CAT percentile that will be used officially. CAT exam is in two sessions, the normalised score obtained by students will be converted into percentile to arrive at the rank obtained in the exam. With normalization and percentile scores in the offing, it is imperative that students understand how their CAT percentile will be calculated and ranks allotted to them on the basis of these. In order to calculate the score, there is need to take into account the total number of candidates (N) who appeared in CAT in both the sessions. Higher rank will be accorded to those candidates who score more marks in the quantitative ability section. If two candidates score same marks in the QA section, then in such a case both of them will be accorded Rank 1 and the candidate who scores the second highest scaled score in the QA section they will be accorded third rank and so on. The percentile score will be calculated on the basis of the following formulae. After the formula is implemented, there is need to round off the calculated percentile score (P) of a candidate upto two decimle points.

KUNAL LANJEWAR 6th Dec, 2019

Hello Pooja,

Your academic career seems very good.  You have done good in CAT. 80 - 83 Percentile range shows that you can definitely expect IIM.

Talking about IIMs, as you might have researched about the last few years' cutoff, the cutoff for OBC of all IIMs range from 80 Percentile and above.

As per the rankings of IIMs, the top five IIMs are-

1. IIM Bangalore

2. IIM Ahmedabad

3. IIM Lucknow

4. IIM Calcutta

5. IIM Tiruchirappalli

You should definitely give priority for the above five IIMs and try to get admission there. Considering last few years' cutoff, you should definitely get admission in any of the IIMs.

Best wishes.

I just appeared for the CAT 2020 and my projected percentile is around 88. I have CGPA 8.4 for 10th grade, 76.8 for 12th, and 6.78 CGPA for Graduation. I have 1 year of Work Experience as well. I would like to know if it is worth it to apply for XIMB. Usually the cutoff is around 90 percentile?

rishabh5978@gmail.com 5th Dec, 2019

Hello there. Hope you are doing good. The cutoff for XIMB goes around 90 percentile every year. It could be high or low depending on the cutoff scores that varies every year. Since your score is near to 90 percentile and if you have a work experience that is worth considering for admission into MBA program. Then you can at least give it a try. You never know what will be the exact situation in the upcoming admission processes.

So, my suggest for you is to definitely give it a try.

I hope you found this answer helpful. Good luck for your future.

What is the cutoff for OBC in CAT & XAT for IRMA ? What is the good percentile to get converted in IRMA for OBC NCL?

rishabh5978@gmail.com 5th Dec, 2019

Hello there. Hope you are doing good. I would like to tell you that the cutoff varies every year. There are several factors determining the cutoff such as:-

  • Number of candidates appearing in IRMASAT 2020 exam.
  • Level of difficulty of  IRMASAT exam.
  • Number of candidates passing IRMASAT 2020

However, based on previous years cutoffs, it is expected that the Cat and XAT cutoff for OBC NCL candidates will be somewhere around 70 percentile. For your reference, I am sharing a link with you which consists of all the necessary information of the exam along with the expected cutoff.
