CAT Normalization Process

  • CAT uses Normalization process to ensure fairness and equity in comparison of performances of the candidates across different test sessions. CAT Normalization process is a sort of percentile equivalence method similar to that used for calculating scores of GATE.

  • The process adjusts location and scale differences of score distributions across different forms. After adjusting the normalization across different forms, the scores are further normalised across different sections.

  • Under the term ‘Equating’, scores will be normalised across all the sections. These normalised scores will be converted into percentile to shortlist the candidates who will get an IIM admission call.

  • For purposes of reporting, Scaled Scores for each section (Section I: Verbal and Reading Comprehension, Section II: Quantitative Ability and Section III: Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning) and Total along with the Percentiles will be published.
