CAT 2020 Result - Calculation of Scaled Scores
IIM CAT result contain section wise scaled and overall scaled scores of candidate. Scaled score of each section for CAT result 2020 are calculated as follows.
Calculation of CAT scaled score - Example
Step 1: Calculate the mean & standard deviation (SD) of the raw scores in the VARC section for all candidates who are appear in the morning shift.
Let Mean be M1
Let SD be S1
Therefore, G1 = M1 + S1
Step 2: Calculate the mean and the standard deviation (SD) of the raw scores in VARC section for all candidates who are appear in the afternoon shift.
Let Mean be M2
Let SD be S2
Therefore, G2 = M2 + S2
Step 3: Calculate the mean and the standard deviation (SD) of the raw scores in the VARC section for all candidates who are appear for(both morning and afternoon shifts).
Let Mean be M
Standard Deviation be S
Therefore, G = M + S
Step 4: Now calculate the mean raw score in the VARC section of the top 0.1% candidates who are appear in the morning shift & denote it by 𝑀1 0.1
Step 5: Similarly, calculate the mean raw score in the VARC of top 0.1% candidates in the afternoon shift & denote it by 𝑀2 0.1
Step 6: Now calculate the mean raw score in the VARC of the top 0.1% candidates appearing in CAT for both morning and afternoon shifts and denote it by 𝑀0.1. Arrive at scaled sectional score for CAT 2020 result.
Calculate the respective scaled sectional score in a similar manner for remaining two sections. The total scaled score for CAT results are the sum of scaled scores of all three sections i.e. QA, VARC, and DILR.
i.e. Total CAT scaled score = QA scores + VARC scores + DILR scores
CAT Result 2020 - Percentile Calculation
To calculate the CAT percentile 2020, the scaled scores is used. The process of calculating percentile for CAT 2020 result remain the same for all sections. The more the percentile the greater will be the chances of selection. The given below process will be used by IIM Indore to calculate CAT 2020 percentile
Step 1: Take the total number of candidates who appeared for CAT in 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 2020. 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 in the picture below:
Step 4: Now round off the calculated percentile score (P). This can be done up to two decimal points. For example, all percentile scores greater than or equal to 99.995 will be rounded off to 99.

I got 69% in 10th 63% in 12th and 99.72 % in graduation 98 percentile in cat with no work experience .... is it possible to get iim Bangalore
Your graduation marks is good and CAT percentile also good. But your 10th and 12th marks is low. Minimum marks is 50% in 10th and 12th to join MBA but some colleges notice also your 10th and 12th marks also. And IIM Bangalore one of them. They want minimum 90% marks in 10th and 12th class. This criteria its not fullfill from you. So i don't think any chances are occure for you. But you can try for it. I'll suggest you some another college name below-
All the best.
with 77 percentile in cat and ews category and 91.2/83/75 in academics. chances of converting iim jammu?
77 percentile in CAT and as you are belongs to EWS category as your choice of course in IIM Jammu which was established in the year of 2016 restricted by the IIM, Lucknow, you have chance to get admission in MBA courses.
To get chance in IIM Jammu the CAT percentile is needed 75% at least.
Hope this helps.
