CAT 2019/2020 Percentile, How to Calculate Percentage in CAT

CATThe CAT commonly known as the Common Admission Test is a National Entrance Test. This exam is regulated by the 19 Indian Institute of Management (IIM) on a rotating basis. CAT is organized to provide admission to the management program offered by the different management colleges.

It is a computer test. It will be conducted by IIM, Calcutta. Here we provide information on the CAT percentile 2019/2020.

The best B schools have a higher range of CAT thresholds, 90+ percentile, while the mid-range B-School cutoff range, 75% 80th percentile and the lower B-School limits have a cutoff range of around 50 percentiles. The Result of the CAT has been published on 4th January 2020.

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.
