Talking to Careers360, CAT officials said that it was just a technical glitch and not ‘leakage’ that enabled a few candidates to download their scorecard.

 

CAT 2015 Convenor Prof Tathagat Bandyopadhyay confirmed that a few candidates could download the scorecards from the official website due to a technical glitch by the online testing partner Tata Consultancy Services (TCS).  “Because a technical glitch on part of TCS, a few candidates could download the scorecard before we could intimate students their results via text SMS,” he said.

He also added that all the candidates will be able to find and download their scorecard through official website by midnight.

Earlier, CAT officials had announced that the results will be announced by second week of January.

 

On the basis of the CAT 2015 Result, the 19 IIMs will announce the shortlist of candidates based on their admission criteria and CAT 2015 cutoff. The shortlisted candidates have to appear for Written Ability Test and Personal Interview rounds. The new IIMs conduct a Common Admission Process consisting of Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI) rounds. 

This year, 1,79,602 candidates appeared for the exam out of 2,18,664 applicants.

 

 

Normalization and Shortlisting at IIMs:

According to the normalization process announced by IIM-A officials, the scores of CAT 2015 results have been adjusted for location and scale differences of score distributions across different test forms. Besides normalization across different forms, the result prepared for CAT 2015 has been further normalized across different sections and the scaled scores obtained by this process have been converted into percentiles. The same percentile will be used as final results for shortlisting by IIMs and other top B-schools accepting Cat scores in India, IIM officials said.
