Details on CMAT Result
CMAT 2021 is conducted by the National Testing Agency in CBT mode. On the scorecard, NTA has released the CMAT score and percentile along with the All India Rank. Candidates can predict their CMAT percentile through the CMAT percentile predictor. Before jumping straight onto the difference between CMAT score vs percentile, let us have a look at what is CMAT score and what CMAT percentile is?
The marks obtained by the candidates on the basis of the marking scheme as prescribed as called the CMAT score. In other words, it is the sum total of marks obtained by the candidates in all four sections. To calculate the CMAT score, candidates can follow the below-mentioned process-
Four marks for each question is awarded
For each wrong or incorrect answer, one mark will be deducted
For unanswered questions, no marks will be awarded or deducted
Total score is calculated by totalling the marks as per questions answered
Note that the result of CMAT 2021 is based upon the above-mentioned process. Let us understand the same with help of an example:
How to Calculate CMAT score?
Marks for Correct Answers
Marks for Wrong Answers
Note that due to negative marking wrong attempts will lead to deduction of marks in total.
Keeping in view the past trend, All India Rank is based on the marks obtained. But in case, two or more candidates get the same marks then in such case the rank is based on the following order-
Quantitative Techniques & Data Interpretation > Logical Reasoning > Language Comprehension > General Awareness
The relative scores which indicate a rank secured by candidates is called the percentile of CMAT. To put it differently, it is a measure of categorizing the candidates based on their performance. It shows the position obtained by candidates in the merit list.
Calculation of CMAT Percentile:
The CMAT percentile score denotes the percentage of candidates that have scored equal to or below that particular CMAT percentile in the examination. Therefore the highest score taker of each session will get the same CMAT percentile of 100 which is desirable. The marks obtained in between the lowest and highest scores are also converted to appropriate CMAT percentiles.
Percentile scores are calculated up to 7 decimal places to avoid the bunching effect and reduce ties. The CMAT percentile score of a candidate is calculated as follows:
Total Percentile (TP1) = 100 x (No. of candidates appeared from the session with raw score EQUAL TO or LESS than T1 score/ Total No. of candidates appeared in the session)
NOTE: The percentile of the total will not be the sum or average of the percentile of the individual subject. The percentile score will not be equal to the percentage of marks obtained.
Let’s understand the above formula with the help of an example:
We will take the example of QA i.e. Quantitative Ability section to calculate percentile:
Step 1: Calculate CMAT 2021 appearing candidates
Step 2: Mention the rank of the candidate in the QA section to all the candidates who will appear for CMAT 2021.
Step 3: Put the values in the formula given above
Suppose, 10000 candidates will give CMAT 2021 and a candidate will secure 5th rank, His/her CMAT percentile will be calculated as below:
P = 10000-5/10000*100
Hence his/her CMAT percentile 2021 will be 99.95.
Note- Percentile of other and overall sections will also be calculated using the above formula. You can also know the accurate percentile by using our CMAT percentile predictor tool.
