    CAT 2022 Percentile

    The CAT result is announced by IIMs in the form of percentile. IIMs and other CAT participating institutes shortlist candidates on the basis of CAT percentile. The CAT Normalisation Process adopted by the IIMs will be used to calculate the CAT 2022 percentile.

    How is CAT Percentile Calculated?

    • Scores of CAT are calculated during the marking scheme of CAT i.e 3 marks for each correct answer and -1 mark for each incorrect answer.

    • After that, the section-wise scores, as well as overall scores of CAT, are normalized to calculate the scaled CAT score.

    • The normalized scores of CAT are then converted into percentiles which are then updated on the CAT scorecard.

    • The percentile of CAT will depend upon many factors such as the difficulty level of the exam and the number of CAT aspirants.

    Details Mentioned in CAT 2022 Result

    When you receive your CAT result cum scorecard, make sure it has the following details printed on it:

    Details Mentioned on CAT Scorecard

    • Name, category, and gender of the candidate.

    • Candidate's Date of Birth (DOB).

    • Date and time when the examination was taken by the candidate.

    • Contact details and email ID provided by the candidate.
    • Scaled Score & Percentile of Section 1 (Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension).

    • Scaled Score & Percentile of Section 3 (Quantitative Ability).
    • Overall Scaled Score (the sum of candidates' scaled scores in the three sections).
    • Overall Percentile (the percentage of candidates who receive score less than or equal to the score obtained by the candidate).
    • Instructions to be followed post the CAT 2022 result.

    CAT 2022 Normalization Process

    Since CAT 2020 was conducted in three sessions, the normalisation process of CAT 2021 provided here is as per the last year's pattern. The information will be updated if there are any updates to the CAT exam pattern this year. Each session of CAT 2021 had a different question paper. Also, the difficulty level of each question set was slightly different. 

    Therefore, making use of the normalization process ensures fairness and equity in the marking process for candidates across all the sessions. CAT normalization is done along similar lines as GATE scoring, where the normalization is done basis the fundamental assumption that the distribution of candidates' abilities is similar across all the sessions. The normalization followed in GATE takes into consideration all the variations in the question papers' difficulty levels across different sessions.

    The scorecard of CAT comprises the scaled scores for each section (Section I: Verbal and Reading Comprehension, Section II: Quantitative Ability, and Section III: Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning) and the total along with the percentiles. The scaled scores are obtained through the normalization process, which involves adjusting location and scale differences of score distributions across different forms. The scaled scores are then converted into percentiles for shortlisting candidates for further admission rounds at IIMs.

    Detailed CAT Normalization Process 

    CAT 2022 Score Validity

    The CAT score is valid for one year only. For CAT Result 2022, the score validity will be until 31st December 2023. Any query related to the scorecard will not be entertained beyond this date.

    What After CAT 2022 Result

Based on the cutoffs, candidates will be shortlisted for the further admission rounds, which may include Writing Ability Test, Group Discussion/Group Exercise/Case Study, and Personal Interview. The cutoff percentile will vary from institute to institute.

    While some of the top B-schools including the IIMs announce their selection criteria as well as the cutoff prior to the announcement of the result, there are many management institutes that announce their cutoffs post the announcement of the CAT result.
