Now that the CAT result is out, it's important for you to get the rest of your preparation into perspective. Irrespective of how you've performed it is critical that you do not lose focus as there are other exams round the corner and only consistent hard-work will help you crack them.
We have picked up enough data to understand the CAT score and how to convert your % score into marks.
The CL faculty taking the exam marked exactly one correct answer of 1 mark in each of the three sections to identify what %score would give 1 mark in each section.
The highest score in the DI Section is thus 39.33 marks. This means that the scores of everybody else taking the CAT exam have been derived from this. If you have a % Score of 50 in the CAT exam, it means that you have scored 18 marks in this section. Your Percentile is derived based on the number of people whose scores fall between yours and 36.
The highest score for Quantitative Ability is 42 and Verbal Ability Sections is 50.00. The highest Total Score is the sum of these 3 and is equal to 131.33. (More info on this is available on Note 2 of the CAT Scorecard)
Compare your scores with the highest scores:
Below is a marks calculator in which you need to enter your % Score and will get the output as the marks that you have scored in the CAT exam. (The marks calculator already keeps into account negative marking 1/3rd of the marks of the question)
In the next couple of days we hope to be able to use this to identify the expected cut-off for the CAT-allied institutes.Find out the cut-offs for other institutes.
Best of Luck for the Rest of the Exams!
