How Does XAT Rank Predictor Work?

Let's say that out of 100 questions, you have answered 60 questions correctly and 20 questions were answered wrong. This means the unattempted questions by you is 20.

According to the XAT 2018 marking scheme, all questions carry equal marks. 1/4 mark will be deducted for each incorrect response. In the examination candidates have a choice of not attempting 12 questions. Beyond this, any un-attempted question will carry the negative mark of 0.05.

Hence, the calculation will be as follows:

1 correct answer= 1*1= 1

1 wrong answer=1*-0.25=-0.25

This implies,

60*1 =60 (score for your correct answers)

20*(-0.25) =-5 (for your wrong responses)

8*(-0.05) = - 0.4 (for un attempted questions)

This gives your Total score= 54.6

Now, we need to calculate the expected rank. This calculation is comparatively difficult. So, let’s suppose your total score i.e. 54.6 be ‘x’.

After that, based on a database of 10000 students’ XAT score of last year, this will be  arranged in decreasing order and compared on important ranks like 100, 500, 1000, 1500 and so on. These ranks are then segregated in rank slabs such as 1-100, 101-200, 201-300 and so on.

To predict your rank, the difficulty level for each subject in previous years is taken into consideration. Suppose the difficulty factor for the year 2017 was 'y'.

Let y = 1.018

Hence, your Normalized Score is

N= x*y

N= 54.6*1.018

= 55.5828

This final score determines your rank prediction. The score is then check with the rank slab it falls in.

At this point, the 'category' of the candidate is also taken into consideration.

The trend of Category Rank is then compared with respect to the combined rank of all the categories. The final Rank of the candidate is then calculated from the database of 10000 students.

The final results will display the expected rank of the candidate. If the rank falls under the rank eligible for admission, the results section will also display the names of top 3 colleges where the candidate can get possible admission for reference.
