New Delhi, 2nd December 2022: On Thursday (December 1), the Common Admission Test (CAT) candidate response sheet was released. CAT 2022 was conducted on November 27. The number of applicants who gave the exam was 2,22,184. The candidate response sheet is available at iimcat.ac.in
Given that the CAT 2022 exam was administered in three shifts with varying degrees of difficulty for each shift, the administering body used a normalization process to determine percentile scores.
Candidates will be able to determine their CAT 2022 ranks using their CAT percentile score. The applicant’s position with other candidates who took the CAT is indicated by their CAT percentile. However, candidates must be aware of the total number of applicants and the normalized CAT score to calculate the CAT 2022 percentile.
Follow the given steps to calculate the CAT percentile:
1. Determine the total number of applicants for the three shifts of the CAT 2022
2. Using the scaled or normalized score to assign ranks
3. [(Number of Aspirants – Rank)/Number of Aspirants] x 100 is used to calculate percentile scores.
4. Up to two decimal places, round the calculated CAT 2022 percentile score.
The CAT 2022 percentile score represents the proportion of applicants who scored at that percentile or lower on the admissions test. The percentile score will be used for the CAT 2022 admission test in place of the candidate’s marks as the normalized score, and it will be used to create the CAT 2022 merit lists.
