How is CAT Percentile Calculated?
The calculation of CAT percentile includes three steps:
As per the CAT exam pattern over the years, three marks are awarded for each correct answer and one mark is deducted for every incorrect answer. No marks are deducted for wrong answers in non-MCQ-type questions.
1. Each candidate’s score is first evaluated section-wise and then the overall score is arrived at by totaling the section-wise scores.
2. Thereafter, these section-wise and overall scores (raw scores) are normalized to arrive at a scaled CAT score.
3. The normalized scores are converted into percentiles which are reported on the CAT scorecard.
CAT Percentile Calculation 2021
To calculate the CAT percentile 2021, the scaled scores are used. The process of calculating percentiles for the CAT 2021 result remains the same for all sections. The more percentile the greater will be the chances of selection. The given below process will be used to calculate CAT 2021 percentile.
Step 1: Take the total number of candidates who appeared for CAT in the morning, afternoon, and evening shifts.
Total no. of candidates = N
Step 2: Assign rank = R, on the basis of the scaled scores obtained by candidates in VARC (can take any of the three) sections of all candidates who will appear for CAT 2021. If two or more candidates will obtain identical scaled scores in the VARC section, identical ranks will be assigned to them.
For example, if two candidates obtain the highest scaled score in the VARC section, then both candidates will be assigned rank 1. Candidate(s) obtaining the second-highest scaled score in the VARC section will be assigned a rank of 3.
Step 3: Now calculate the percentile score (P) of a candidate with rank (r) in the VARC section as shown below:
P= (N-r)/ N ) *100
Step 4: Now round off the calculated percentile score (P). This can be done up to two decimal points. For example, all CAT 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.
What is the CAT Normalization process?
As the CAT exam is conducted in different slots, a normalization process is used wherein the marks of every candidate are scaled in order to bring equity in the marking process. The normalization process of CAT is an established practice followed over the years to assess the performance of a candidate across multiple sessions.
What are the parameters taken into consideration for CAT normalization?
Top 10 percentiles
Lowest 10 percentiles
What after CAT Result 2021?
Once the CAT 2021 result is declared, the candidates who meet the minimum CAT cutoff score will be intimated via an email by the respective IIMs for further selection rounds. Each IIM sends interview letters to the shortlisted candidates directly on email/registered/speed post. The criteria for shortlisting vary across IIMs.
Normally the IIMs follow the selection procedure which includes the following rounds- Written Ability Test (WAT), Group Discussion (GD), and Personal Interview (PI) rounds. The new IIMs have a common selection procedure, that is, a Common Admission Process( CAP) for which separate registration is done once the minimum CAP cutoff percentile is released by the CAP conducting authority.
The final selection of the candidates for MBA 2022-2024 admissions will be done on the basis of various parameters such as CAT score, academic history, work experience, academic diversity, gender diversity, and performance in WAT/GD-PI.
CAT Cutoff 2021
The minimum marks required by a candidate in the CAT result to make it to the next selection rounds is called CAT cutoff. There are a number of factors considered before calculating the CAT cutoff 2021. These factors include- difficulty level of the CAT question paper, number of candidates appearing for the CAT exam, seat intake, previous year CAT cutoffs, etc. Candidates can meanwhile check the previous year's CAT cutoff.

Hi, I want to appear for CAT but i have a gap of 5 years between 12th and graduation. Will this gap create problem in selection for a college or while selecting for job after MBA? I have cleared CA intermediate in these 5 years and have a suitable experience of full time job in a good company.
Hi Vipul. No the 5 years gap won't be a problem in college selection or interview process or job placement . Those will be considered as educational gap since you have a genuine reason and good achievements like clearing CA intermediate, and good company job. Still to be on the safe side, try to get a good percentile , prepare for interview and build up your resume
