This represents the overall number of marks achieved throughout all sections. The CAT percentile measures how each candidate performed in relation to the other students who took the CAT exam in 2022.

How to calculate CAT 2022 percentile?

  • Calculate the total number of candidates (N) who participated in the CAT.
  • All candidates who participated in the CAT should be given a rank (r), based on the scaled scores attained in the QA portion. If two or more applicants receive the same scaled score on the QA section, assign those candidates the same ranks.
  • Calculate a candidate’s percentile score (P) for the QA section as follows: P = [(N − r)/N] x 100.
  • Round off the calculated percentile score (P) of a candidate up to two decimal points.
