How is CAT Result 2019 calculated?

CAT 2019 is a computer based test held in two sessions. To ensure equivalence of both the sessions, a process of normalization will be used to arrive at the scores.The CAT 2019 normalization procedure will be as follows:

  • Normalisation process used will adjust for location and scale differences of score distributions across different forms.
  • Once normalisation is done across different forms, the scores obtained will be further normalised across different sections to arrive at the scaled scores..
  • The next step is to convert these scaled scores into percentiles for purposes of shortlisting.
    In the CAT 2019 result, the scaled scores for each section (Section I: Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension (VARC), Section II: Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning (DILR), and Section III: Quantitative Ability (QA))with the total scaled scores willbe published.
  • The Total scaled scores is obtained by adding the scaled scores of these three sections
  • The Percentiles will also be published in the result of CAT 2019.

Calculation of CAT 2019 Scaled Score of a candidate

The following steps are used to calculate the scaled score of a section mentioned in CAT result 2019. The overall scaled score is obtained by adding the scaled scores of the three sections in CAT exam. Here the QA section is used as an example.

Step 1: Calculate the mean and the standard deviation (SD) of the raw scores in QA section for all candidates appearing in the morning 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 section for all candidates appearing in the afternoon session.
Let Mean = M2 and SD = S2 and G2 = M2 + S2.

Step 3: Calculate the mean and the standard deviation (SD) of the raw scores in QA section for all candidates appearing in CAT 2019 (both morning and afternoon sessions).
Let Mean = M and SD = S and G = M + S.

Step 4: Calculate mean raw score in QA section of the top 0.1% candidates in the morning session and denote it by 𝑀1 0.1.

Step 5: Calculate mean raw score in QA of top 0.1% candidates in the afternoon session and denote it by 𝑀2 0.1.

Step 6: Calculate the mean raw score in QA of top 0.1% candidates appearing in CAT (both morning and afternoon session) and denote it by 𝑀0.1.


Example:
CAT-2019-scaled-score-example

This will be the process to be followed for all the three sections - QA, VARC and DILR. The total scaled score will be the sum of these three.

Calculation of CAT 2019 Percentile Score

The scaled scores as computed above are taken for calculation of the percentiles of the candidates as mentioned in the result of CAT 2019. The QA section has been taken for illustration purposes and it must be noted that the procedure for the remaining sections as well as the total percentile. The process is as follows

Step 1: Calculate the total number of candidates (N) who appeared for CAT (both morning and afternoon sessions).

Step 2: A rank (r), will be assigned on the basis of the scaled scores obtained in the QA section to all candidates who appeared for the exam. If two or more candidates obtain identical scaled scores in the QA section, identical ranks will be assigned to them. For example if two candidates obtain the highest scaled score in the QA section, then both these candidates will be assigned a rank of 1. Next the candidate(s) obtaining the second highest scaled score in the QA section will be 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 given below:
CAT-2019-percentile-calculationStep 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 will be rounded off to 100. Similarly all percentile scores greater than or equal to 99.985 but strictly less than 99.995 will be rounded off to 99.99 and so on.

How I crack CAT examinations for MBA to take admission in IIMs.. I also want to go abroad for further studies after completing my bcom degree but i am confused so much what path can I go for future if I want to earn good money ?? Please give me advice guys..

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 17th Nov, 2019

Ayush, CAT exam paper can be Categorised into 3 parts:

Quantitative Ability
Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension
Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning

The Verbal Ability section and Reading Comprehension has 34 Questions, Data interpretation-Logical Reasoning section has 32 MCQ questions and Quantitative Ability has 34 MCQ questions totalling up to 100 questions. Each Question has 3 marks and a wrong answer takes away 1 mark.

Quantitative Aptitude covers almost 30% of the CAT question paper. QA can be categorised into Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry and Advanced Mathematics. Practise chapter by chapter and develop mental calculations. Like practise more of basic summation, subtraction, fractions and tables. Numbers, Percentage, Profit and Loss, Simple and Compound Interest, Ratio, Proportionality, Time-Distance, Time-Work, Mixtures, Averages, Partnership, Permutation and Combinations, Probability, Set Theory, Progression and Series, Line, Angles, Triangles, Quadrilaterals, Polygon, Circles, Ares, Volume, Height and Distance, Coordinate Geometry, Basic Trigonometry are few important topics.

In Verbal Ability session, command on your English, Grammar, Vocabulary, Understanding of the given paragraph are of more importance. Reading English NewsPaper will also help you in your preparation.

Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning needs to be practised as much as possible. Comparison of data, Data Analysis, taking clues, interpreting missing data, coming to conclusions and making future projections will be covered under this Category. The questions here are interlinked and so if you get one formula correct, cracking the next few questions will be easy. So it's important to memorise and practise formulae. You should cover topics like Data tables, Data Charts, Bar Diagrams, Pie Charts, Graphs, Data Comparison and Analysis.

IIMs shortlist candidates for the interview stage based on their own criteria, which may be independent of each other. The process may include Written Ability Test, Group Discussion, and Personal Interviews. Performance in the CAT examination is an important component in the admission process. IIMs may additionally use other factors such as the previous academic performance of the candidates, relevant work experience, gender and academic diversity and other similar inputs in shortlisting and ranking of candidates at various stages of the admission process. The processes, academic cut-offs and the weights allocated to the evaluation parameters may vary across IIMs. Now based on your Category, to be shortlisted for an IIM, you should score atleast 85 and more percentile.

Now the IIMs part has been cleared, you need to decide one among MBA in India via CAT or go abroad for higher studies. You cannot be double minded on this. You know your strengths and capabilities and so this should be completely your call.

IIMs shortlist candidates for the interview stage based on their own criteria, which may be independent of each other. The process may include Written Ability Test, Group Discussion, and Personal Interviews. Performance in the CAT examination is an important component in the admission process. IIMs may additionally use other factors such as the previous academic performance of the candidates, relevant work experience, gender and academic diversity and other similar inputs in shortlisting and ranking of candidates at various stages of the admission process. The processes, academic cut-offs and the weights allocated to the evaluation parameters may vary across IIMs. For example, IIM Ahmedabad folliws the following rating scale:

IIM Ahmedabad:

After shortlisting the Candidates, the selected Candidates will have to go through WAT and PI rounds. Selection at this stage will strictly be based on the shortlisting of the candidates done separately for each Category ) on the basis of their Final Composite Score. . The numbers selected in different reservation categories will be in proportions mandated by law.

Personal Interview Multiplication Factor (PIF) = 0.50

AWT Multiplication Factor (AWTF) = 0.10

CAT Score Multiplication Factor for Final Composite Score (CATF_FCS) = 0.25

Application Rating Multiplication Factor for Final Composite Score (ARF_FCS) = 0.15


After the AWT & PI round, admission offers are made by IIMA to successful candidates. The final selection is based on a diverse set of attributes which includes performance in CAT, performance in AWT & PI, academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular achievements, work experience, etc.
