CAT Score Calculation 2018: The Common Admission Test or CAT is conducted in two sessions on a single day, to maintain the equality in scores, candidates must be aware of the method of CAT Score Calculation. The marks of all examinees in CAT are calculated through a normalization process. This helps in equating marks, allotting ranks and identifying candidate’s scores across multiple forms.

Calculation of CAT Percentile
CAT Percentile = [1 – (Your Rank in CAT 2017/Total Number of Candidates taking CAT 2017)] * 100
If the total number candidates who will be appearing for CAT 2017 exam is 1, 00,000 and you score a CAT rank 2017 of 3,500 then your CAT percentile will be calculated as below:
Your CAT 2016 Percentile = [1 – (3500/1, 00,000)] * 100 = 96.5
The above percentile means that 96.5 percent of the students writing the CAT exam shall have the CAT score below you.
No candidate can score an absolute 100 percentile in CAT exam because CAT Percentile indicates what percent of students you are ahead of, including yourself. Also, the CAT percentile is calculated up to three decimal places and it then rounded off to the next closest possible number.
CAT exam which is conducted on multiple days at multiple time slots generally maintains a uniform level of difficulty throughout the examination process. CAT Exam is designed in a manner which makes it difficult for candidates to answer all the questions correctly and thus chances for a perfect score are minimal.
Equating CAT follows a psychometric process in order to adjust differences in difficulty level. The process is followed to keep a tab on comparable metric and be justified to candidates who test across multiple days. There are three phases in equating the CAT Exam:
