How CAT 2023 Percentile Scores are Calculated

The CAT 2023 exam is a crucial step for candidates aspiring to pursue management studies in India. To determine the overall and sectional percentile scores obtained by each candidate, a specific process is followed. Let’s dive into the steps involved in calculating the percentile scores, using the Quantitative Ability (QA) section as an example. Step 1: Total Number of Candidates First, we calculate the total number of candidates (N) who appeared for CAT, including those who took the exam in the three sessions. Step 2: Assigning Ranks Next, based on the scaled scores obtained in the QA section, each candidate is assigned a rank (r). In cases where two or more candidates achieve identical scaled scores, they are given the same rank. For instance, if two candidates score the highest in the QA section, both will be assigned a rank of 1. Similarly, the candidates with the second-highest scaled scores will be assigned a rank of 3, and so on.

Step 3: Calculating Percentile Score – The percentile score (P) of a candidate with a particular rank (r) in the QA section is then calculated using the formula: P = (N – r) x 100 / N.

Step 4: Rounding off Percentile Scores To ensure consistency, the calculated percentile scores are rounded off to two decimal points. For example, scores equal to or greater than 99.995 are rounded off to 100, while scores equal to or greater than 99.985 but less than 99.995 are rounded off to 99.99, and so on. This same methodology is applied for computing the overall CAT percentile scores and the percentile scores of the other two sections: Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning (DILR), and Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension (VARC).
