Understanding the XAT Scorecard
|Quantitaive and Analytical Ability
|Verbal and Logical Ability
|* This denotes the Relative Score in Percentage. The
relative % is your percentage mark obtained with reference to the
maximum score in that section by anybody.
Percentage - My score in that section. For e.g. The Quant Section had
75 Qs. The student mentioned above has a %age of 9.33. Which means he
would have scored 7 marks in this section.
You can find out your score in each of the sections by simply multiplying
your %score with the number of questions in that section. (75 for Quant,
65 for EU & 35 for GK - 175 overall)
Relative %age - This as rightly stated above is your percentage marks
with reference to the maximum score. As is clear from the above, a Total
%age of 4 is 7 marks. This means that 8.68% of the total % marks is 7
or 100% of the total %marks is 80.6 (7 divided by 8.68).
Percentile - My score in relation to the highest score obtained in that
section. For e.g. The student mentioned above has a %ile of 10.1. This
means that between him and the topper, there are 89.9% of the all the
people who have sat for the XAT exam. Therefore, if your percentile is
95, it means that 95% of all students taking the test lie below you and
conversely that you lie in the top 5%
All the Best!!!
