How to Calculate XAT Percentile

How to Calculate Percentage Using Formula?

Unlike CAT, score normalization is not done in XAT as it is conducted in a single session. Hence, percentile is used in XAT which can be calculated using the following formula:

Your XAT Rank/Total candidates x 100

For example, if your rank is 100 in XAT 2022 and 100,000 students participated, your percentile would be 90.

Key terms related to XAT Cut off

  • Cutoff ranks: To decide the priority of the candidates in the selection process Cutoff ranks are used. Higher rank holders will be given priority in the selection process. The cut-off rank will be decided based on the last rank to get included in the merit.
