CAT 2019/2020 Percentile 

A percentile represents the range of candidates for the exam. To calculate the percentile, institutions follow the CAT marking system. The answers will be verified and a total score will be determined. The total score will be adjusted through a process called “equation”. Then the score will be standardized in different sections. Subsequently, the standardized score obtained by the candidates will be converted into percentiles for selection purposes. The CAT result will be announced in January 2020. Candidates can download their CAT scorecard through online mode.

Candidates will get a call from different IIMs & other non-IIM management institutions on the basis of CAT percentile, CAT score & along with the sectional cut-offs for the next round.
