    2. For each correct answer, add 4 points
    3. For each incorrect answer , deduct 1 mark
    4. There is no negative marking for any question that is unanswered
    5. Total score will be calculated out of 400 
    CMAT Sections  Marks for Each Section
    Language Comprehension N/100
    Logical Reasoning N/100 
    Quantitative Technique and Data InterpretationN/100
    General Awareness N/100
    Total N/400
    • CMAT Scorecard will contain both the candidate’s raw scores and percentile scores 

    • The raw scores are normalized and then converted into percentile scores

    • CMAT Percentile is calculated on the basis of the rank that is allotted to the candidate 

    • Scores are adjusted for scale and location differences in the normalization process

    Calculating CMAT Rank

    • Ranks are given to the candidate on the basis of the marks scored by them in the exam
    • Candidate who scores the highest attains All India Rank 1
    • If two candidates attain the same score, rank is alloted on the basis of their sectional scores 

    Calculating CMAT Percentile

    • To calculate their percentile, candidates need to multiply the number of candidates that sat for the examination that have equal raw marks with a 100 and divide it by the total number of candidates that appeared for the examination
    • For eg. If a candidate has gotten the first rank, his CMAT percentile score will be calculated in the following manner: 100 x 9999/10,000 = 99.99
