CMAT Score vs Percentile 2019

CMAT 2019 results are likely to be released by February 8, 2019. Check the detailed analysis of CMAT score vs percentile, CMAT rank vs percentile and CMAT scoring mechanism here.

CMAT 2019 results are going to be released by February 8, 2019. This year, NTA (National testing Agency) is conducting CMAT examination, and NTA has not made any changes to the CMAT exam and scoring pattern. As soon as CMAT 2019 results are out, students search for percentile score in CMAT examination. Students can predict percentile through our CMAT Percentile Predictor Tool There is a lot of comparison between CMAT score vs percentile, and a specific process is incorporated to determine the percentile of candidates on the basis of the CMAT score.

CMAT results are announced in the form of total score obtained by the candidates, percentile score and AIR (All India Rank). These details will be available on CMAT scorecard. CMAT rank allotment process is completely different from other national-level management exams. If you compare CMAT with CAT, NMAT, and XAT, the scoring, ranking and percentile process is completely different.

In order to give students an idea of CMAT scoring mechanism, rank allotment process and determining percentile score, CollegeDekho has come up with a detailed analysis of the same. Check all the details here.

How to Calculate the CMAT Score?

CMAT exam is divided into four sections such as General Awareness, Language Comprehension, Logical Reasoning, and Quantitative Technique & Data Interpretation. Each section in CMAT exam comprises of 25 questions for 100 marks (4 Marks), which means that CMAT is conducted for 400 marks (100 questions). However, there is a negative marking of -1 for each wrong answer. The total score in CMAT is calculated by totaling/ compiling marks gained or lost in each question.

Let us look at the example below for a better understanding –

Name of the Student

Total Questions Answered

Total No. of Correct Answers

Total No. of Wrong Answers

Marks Awarded for Correct Answers

Marks Deducted for Incorrect Answers

CMAT Final Score

X

97

90

7

90 X 4 = 360

-7

360 – 7 = 353

Y

100

78

22

78 X 4 = 312

-22

312 – 22 = 290

Z

100

84

16

84 X 4 = 336

-16

336 – 16 = 320

A

100

62

38

62 X 4 = 248

-38

248 – 38 = 210

As per the above example, wrong answers by students will have a negative impact on the overall score of CMAT.

CMAT Rank Allotment Process

CMAT ranks are allotted based on the overall score secured by candidates in CMAT. If two candidates secure same/ similar marks in CMAT, two candidates shall be allocated the same rank. However, the order in the rank list will be sorted out alphabetically.

Here is an example for CMAT rank allotment process that will help students to figure out what happens if two or more students secure the same marks –

CMAT Score vs Percentile

Based on the rank secured by students in CMAT, the percentile score is determined. The percentile score determines the score of the candidates equal to or less than the score of other candidates in the exam. CMAT percentile is calculated by applying the following formula –

Percentile (P) = N (Total No. of Candidates Appeared in CMAT Exam) – Rank of the Candidate divided by N multiplied by 100. Check the example below for a better understanding.

Example

Let us assume that 50,000 candidates appeared for the exam. The percentile of 5 students might be as follows –

Name of the Student

CMAT AIR (All India Rank)

CMAT Percentile (as per formula mentioned above)

A

1

Percentile = 50000 – 1/50000 X 100 = 99.9

B

7

Percentile = 50000 – 7/50000 X 100 = 98.6

C

11

Percentile = 50000 – 11/50000 X 100 = 97.8

X

22

Percentile = 50000 – 22/50000 X 100 = 95.6

Y

120

Percentile = 50000 – 120/50000 X 100 = 76

Z

230

Percentile = 50000 – 230/50000 X 100 = 54

Note: Even though the CMAT percentile score is determined, the rank allotment is completely based on the overall score secured by the candidates.
