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.

What after CAT 2017 Result

 

CAT 2017 participating institutes will declare the shortlist of candidates on the basis of candidates’ percentile and their cutoff. CAT 2017 cutoff percentile will vary from institute to institute. While IIMs and some other top B-schools announce their admission criteria including cutoff prior to the result, a majority of the B-schools declare their cutoffs after the CAT result is declared.

 

Shortlisted or qualified candidates will have to appear for the selection procedure followed at the institutes which include Writing Ability Test, Group Discussion/Group Exercise/Case Study and Personal Interview. The final result or the merit lists at the B-schools will be based on candidates’ performance in CAT 2017, selection rounds and overall profile.

Hi Sakshi,
A regular MBA holds more value than a course pursued from distance education. It gives you a better exposure in ways of practical learning. I would suggest you to go with the regular one.
