How to calculate the CAT 2021 percentile

To calculate the CAT percentile, the scaled scores are used. The higher the percentile, the higher the chances of being selected at IIM and other top MBA universities.

Step 1: Take the total number of candidates, N, who showed up for CAT in the morning, afternoon and evening shifts.

Step 2: Assign the rank, r, based on the scaled scores obtained by the candidates in the VARC sections (you can take any of the three) of all the candidates that appeared for CAT 2021. If two or more candidates will get scaled scores identical in the In the VARC section, they will be assigned identical ranges.

Step 3: Now calculate the percentile score (P) of a candidate with rank (r) in the VARC section as shown below:

P = (Nr) / N) * 100

Step 4: Now round the calculated percentile score (P). This can be done to up to two decimal places. For example, all CAT percentile scores greater than or equal to 99.995 are rounded to 100, all percentile scores greater than or equal to 99.985 but strictly less than 99.995 are rounded to 99.99, and so on.
