2. CAT 2023 Percentile Calculation: Key Factors & Process

The CAT 2023 percentile calculation method has been released by IIMs, much before the CAT exam date. CAT percentile is arrived at after converting your raw CAT score to scaled score and then to CAT percentile score. Accordingly, the CAT percentile in your score card, is calculated as a relative score and indicates your rank among the total number of candidates who have appeared in the CAT exam. If a candidate gets 100 percentile at any raw/scaled score, it implies he has performed among the best top candidates in CAT exam and if his/her CAT percentile is 95+, it shows that he/she has better performed than 95% of the total candidates who have appeared in CAT exam.

 

CAT percentile calculation is based on the following key factors to predict your CAT percentile 2023 after taking your CAT 2023 exam:

  • Total number of candidates who have taken the CAT exam in all the slots;
  • Highest to Lowest scaled score;
  • Difficulty level in each test slot

3. CAT 2023 Percentile Predictor for Admission 2024 in Top IIMs

But, before you know what CAT percentile is required by top B-schools to consider your candidature, please note that you can get higher percentile even at lower CAT score, if you do not make more mistakes. CAT Percentile calculation is a centralized process and is done by CAT exam centre instead of individual IIM. Below is shared the minimum CAT percentile prediction for admission 2024 at top IIMs and other top B-schools accepting CAT score:

4. How IIMs calculate CAT Percentile? Process of Conversion

The methodology adopted by IIMs for calculation of percentile score of a candidate is as per the steps described below. They are followed to calculate the CAT 2023 overall and sectional percentile scores obtained by a candidate. While illustrating the percentile score calculation process, QA section is chosen as an example. Similar process is followed for the overall percentile score calculation and for calculation of percentile in the other two sections, i.e. DILR and VARC in CAT 2023.

  • Step 1: Calculate the total number of candidates (N) who appeared for CAT (i.e. including morning, afternoon and evening sessions)
  • Step 2: Assign a rank (r), based on the scaled scores obtained in the QA section, to all candidates who appeared for CAT. In the case of two or more candidates obtaining identical scaled scores in the QA section, assign identical ranks to all those candidates. As an illustration suppose exactly two candidates obtain the highest scaled score in the QA section, then both of those candidates are assigned a rank of 1. Moreover, the candidate(s) obtaining the second highest scaled score in the QA section are assigned a rank of 3 and so on.
  • Step 3: Calculate the percentile score (P) of a candidate with rank (r) in the QA section as: P = ( ( N-r ) N ) x 100
  • Step 4: Round off the calculated percentile score (P) of a candidate up to two decimal points. For example, all percentile scores greater than or equal to 99.995 are rounded off to 100, all percentile scores greater than or equal to 99.985 but strictly less than 99.995 are rounded off to 99.99 and so on. 

A methodology similar to the above is used for the computation of the overall CAT percentile scores and for the percentile scores of other sections. 

5. MBAUniverse.com CAT Percentile Calculator with Same Methodology

Similar Methodology is used at MBAUniverse.com to Arrive at CAT Percentile Slot-Wise. For the computation of Slot-1, Slot-2 and Slot-3 overall CAT percentile scores and sectional percentile scores a methodology very similar, as used by IIMs is applied at MBAUniverse.com.

14. CAT Score vs Percentile: How does the CAT percentile predictor work? 

The process how to arrive at the accurate CAT percentile calculation involves your net score awarded in CAT 2023, the calculated scaled score and finally the conversion of CAT scaled score to the CAT 2023 percentile score – sectional as well as overall.

 

IIMs will declare the CAT 2023 result alongwith your CAT 2023 Percentile based on 4 parameters:

  • Total number of candidates appeared in CAT 2023 exam,
  • Your performance relative to your peers;
  • Slot wise Difficulty level in CAT 2023 Exam
  • Section-wise difficulty level in CAT exam 2023

Based on this principle, the CAT Percentile Predictor 2023 prepared by MBAUniverse.com, works to help you know about CAT 2023 score and percentile you are likely to get. The more accurate you are in understanding your total number of attempts and correct answers for each of the CAT sections, the nearer you are to predict your CAT 2023 percentile. Read more about the Score Normalization process of IIMs 

15. Occurrence of Changes in CAT Percentile Predictions

Please note that depending upon the increase/decrease in number of candidates, their relative performance in the exam, the percentile calculation result through the CAT percentile predictor 2023 may change as also happens before final CAT result is declared

 

Apart from a high CAT 2023 Percentile, you need a balanced sectional percentile in CAT 2023 as the basic criterion to remain eligible for shortlisting by IIMs. Although, the qualifying sectional percentile scores have been lowered by top IIMs, for example IIM Ahmedabad needs only 70 sectional and 80 overall percentile; IIM Calcutta requires 80 sectional and 90 overall percentile as the qualifying scores in CAT 2023 for shortlisting, the actual CAT percentile at the top IIMs may go much higher.
