How is CAT Percentile Calculated?

The steps described below are followed to calculate the CAT 2023 overall and sectional percentile scores obtained by a candidate. While illustrating the CAT percentile score calculation process, the QA section is chosen as an example. A similar process is followed for the overall percentile score calculation and for the other two sections, i.e. DILR and VARC in CAT 2023.

  • Step 1: Calculate the total number of candidates (N) who appeared for CAT (i.e. including morning, afternoon and evening sessions).
  • Step 2: Assign a rank (r), based on the scaled scores obtained in the QA section, to all candidates who appeared for CAT. In the case of two or more candidates obtaining identical scaled scores in the QA section, assign identical ranks to all those candidates. As an illustration, suppose exactly two candidates obtain the highest scaled score in the QA section, and then both of those candidates are assigned a rank of 1. Moreover, the candidate(s) obtaining the second highest scaled score in the QA section are assigned a rank of 3 and so on.
  • Step 3: Calculate the percentile score (P) of a candidate with rank (r) in the QA section as; P = ((N-r)/N)x100.
  • Step 4: Round off the calculated percentile score (P) of a candidate up to two decimal points.
    • For example, all percentile scores greater than or equal to 99.995 are rounded off to 100, all percentile scores greater than or equal to 99.985 but strictly less than 99.995 are rounded off to 99.99 and so on.

Hello Aspirant,

Yes, you can sit for the CAT exam with a CGPA of 8.5. However when you do crack the CAT exam and have to sit for the interview round or the Group discussion round, you will be asked the question about 4 years of graduation, in which case, carry your hospital records and medical certificates to prove to them that you actually had some health issues during your graduation. This shouldn't be a problem because you had a genuine reason for the one-year gap.

Hello,

Getting admission to an IIM without taking the CAT is possible through alternative routes such as:

1. Executive MBA (PGPX,EPGP,ect .)  : Many IIMs offer Executive MBA programs for experienced professionals, which may require GMAT scores instead of CAT .

2.Integrated programs: Some IIMs offer integrated programs like IPM (Integrated Program in Management), where admission cab be based on entrance exams other than CAT.

3.Doctoral programs (Ph.D.): Some IIMs accept GMAT/GRE scores for their doctoral programs .

4. Specialized Courses: IIMs offer various short-term and ccertificate programs that don't require CAT scores.

Check the specific IIM websites for detailed admission criteria and processes for these programs .
