How is CAT Percentile Calculated?
The calculation of CAT percentile includes three steps:
As per the CAT exam pattern over the years, three marks are awarded for each correct answer and one mark is deducted for every incorrect answer. No marks are deducted for wrong answers in non-MCQ-type questions.
Steps to Calculate CAT Percentile
- Each candidate’s score is first evaluated section-wise and then the overall score is arrived at by totaling the section-wise scores.
- Thereafter, these section-wise and overall scores (raw scores) are normalized to arrive at a scaled CAT score.
- The normalized scores are converted into percentiles which are reported on the CAT scorecard.
CAT Percentile Calculation 2021
To calculate the CAT percentile 2021, the scaled scores are used. The process of calculating percentiles for the CAT 2021 result remains the same for all sections. The more percentile the greater will be the chances of selection. The given below process will be used to calculate CAT 2021 percentile.
Step 1: Take the total number of candidates who appeared for CAT in the 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 2021. 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 below:
- P= (N-r)/ N ) *100
Step 4: Now round off the calculated percentile score (P). This can be done up to two decimal points. For example, all CAT percentile scores greater than or equal to 99.995 are rounded off to 100, all percentile scores greater than or equal to 99.985 but strictly less than 99.995 are rounded off to 99.99, and so on.
What is the CAT Normalization Process?
As the CAT exam is conducted in different slots, a normalization process is used wherein the marks of every candidate are scaled in order to bring equity in the marking process. The normalization process of CAT is an established practice followed over the years to assess the performance of a candidate across multiple sessions.
What are the parameters taken into consideration for CAT normalization?

can i aim for IIM if i have 72% in 12,72% in 10th and 79% in UG (commerce) and i come under EWS , is it possible to get call from any IIM ?and if yes what percentile should i look for in CAT 2022, and Same for IIFT and FMS
It is true that more than 90+ percentage in academics will get call from IIM if they score 90+ percentile in CAT but Average academic record is not a barrier in getting IIM.your marks is not good but not that poor either try to score more than 99 percentile to get call from top IIMs.if you score 97 percentile you can get call from old IIM'S like IIM lucknow,IIFT,FMS DELHI.
Instead of pondering over which college you get focus more on your studies to score as much as you can to get top b schools.
