Note- National ranking is given based on candidate’s total score. In a case where more than one student score same marks, then the ranking is based on the following order:

Quantitative Techniques & Data Interpretation > Logical Reasoning > Language Comprehension > General Awareness

Also, in case one or more candidates hold the same ranking as per the above mentioned criteria, in that case same ranking will be assigned and that name will be arranged alphabetically. The rank of the subsequent student will be extended by the number of additional students. For example if three candidates secure 23rd rank then the subsequent candidate will be ranked 26th.

CMAT Percentile

CMAT percentile is a measure which indicates the percentage of students who are lower from a particular percentage scorer. The percentile is calculated using the formula:

100 X Number of candidates appeared in the examination with raw marks EQUAL TO OR LESS than the candidate/ Total number of the candidates appeared

Let’s understand the above formula with the help of an example:

We will take Quantitative Ability in consideration to calculate percentile.

Step 1 - Calculate the number of students who appeared for CMAT 2020

Step 2 - Mention the rank of the candidate which is calculated based on the scaled score of the student in QA section to all the candidates who have appeared for CMAT 2020.

Step 3 - Calculate the percentile now by putting the values in the above mentioned formula.

Note - Similar method will be used to compute the percentile of other sections and overall percentile.

Will XIME Banglore give a call if percentile in CMAT is .5 less than the actual cutoff ?

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 21st Feb, 2020

hi,

see to get a call from any institute based on the cutoff you need to secure the same as the cutoff or more from the cutoff, there is no chances unless the institute authority want to change the cutoff to get call for gd or pi round if your cutoff is less then the mentioned cutoff in application brochure.

hope you may understand.
