CAT 2019 Percentile

The result of CAT 2019 consists of scores and percentiles. To indicate the value below which a given percentage of test takers fall, percentile is used as a measure. Shortlisting of candidates by IIMs and other participating institutes is done on the basis of CAT percentile. A normalization process has been adopted to calculate the percentile.


Normalization Procedure of CAT 2019

Since CAT 2019 will be conducted in two sessions, there might be a difference between the two question papers in some way or the other. To avoid any discrepancy and to ensure fairness and equity in performance comparison of the candidates across different test sessions, normalization will be done to the secured scores of the candidates. The normalization process will adjust for location and scale differences of score distributions across different forms. After normalization across different forms, the scores shall be further normalized across different sections. The scaled scores obtained by this process shall be converted into percentiles for purposes of shortlisting.


For reporting purposes, scaled scores for every three sections and total along with the percentiles shall be available in the result of CAT 2019.


Important Points of CAT Result 2019

  • CAT 2019 result will be available in online mode. Offline copy will not be provided to the candidates.

  • The result will consist of section wise and total score and percentile

  • The sum of the scaled scores of the candidate in the three sections will be the overall scaled score.

  • The score of CAT 2019 will be valid only for one year.

  • A candidate’s score will be disqualified if he/she has provided wrong information and does not meet the rules of the admission process. The candidate will also not be allowed to participate for CAT in the future.
