Normalization of Scores in CAT 2019

Normalization of the scores is done through the “equating” Process. The normalization process will be applied to the score to convert them into a percentile. The IIMs follow the “Percentile Equivalence” formula on which the normalization is done.

  • This process is used to ensure that candidate’s performances are compared through a fair process.
  • This process adjusts location and scale differences. Across different sections, the scores will be normalized after adjustment across different forms.
  • To shortlist candidates for the selection procedure, the “Equating” process will be used to convert the normalized score into a percentile.
  • The scores of the students in the second set and city would be multiplied by a number which is arrived at by careful consideration of multiple factors such as:
  1. Highest score
  2. Lowest score
  3. Top 10 percentile scores
  4. Lowest 10 percentile scores
  5. Mean
  6. Median
  7. Other deviations (city, educational background etc.)

The actual Normalisation Process is yet to be disclosed by the authorities of Indian institute of Management. Official brochure states the first process to convert into percentile.
