CAT Score – How to Evaluate?

The CAT exam is conducted in three sessions, after which a process of normalisation takes place, which ensures fairness and equality in the performance of the candidates across different locations. As such, the CAT score card is generated after a sub-normalisation process under the three parts of the exam, which are as follows:

  1. Quantitative Reasoning
  2. Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning
  3. Verbal and Reading Comprehension.

The marks scored by the candidates are converted to the percentile format, which facilitates the process of shortlisting. The score calculator is available online. The highest CAT score is further noticeably highlighted so that the level of competitiveness is clearly visible to all those who wish to apply.

Candidates can visit the CAT score vs percentile to know about the process in a detailed way.

In the CAT exam, the percentile is calculated just like in many other examinations. All the papers of the candidates are evaluated and sorted in descending order of their CAT marks. Also, for CAT, the percentile is calculated up to three decimal places and is then rounded off to the next closest possible number.
