Shubham, it depends on the total no.of Candidates who have appeared for the exam. CAT percentile is calculated using the formula: P=(R*N)/100, where P is percentile, R is Rank of the Candidate based on the CAT score and N is the no.of Candidates who appeared for the exam. Every correct answer gives you 3 marks. So to be able to get 60 marks, you must have written 20 questions correct. To calculate the percentile, we need to know the no.of Candidates who wrote CAT and your rank based on this score. And we do not have those details and so unfortunately we cannot guess the percentile.
