    CAT 2023 Admit Card: Section-wise scores vs total score

    Many candidates confuse the total percentile (normalized) score to be an average of the subject-wise scores. However, the scores for each subject and the total score are normalized separately as per the normalization process and hence, the total score will not be an average of the subject-wise percentiles.

  • Nov 07, 2023 07:10 PM IST

    CAT 2023 Admit Card: Scores to be normalized

    As CAT 2023 is conducted in three shifts with different question papers, to ensure fairness and equity in the comparison of candidates' performances, the scores of candidates will be subjected to a process of Normalisation. The Normalisation process will equalize the differences in score distributions across the shifts. Instead of the actual scores, the normalized scores will be converted into percentiles for the purpose of shortlisting.
