The CAT 2021 results have been released. Candidates can access their CAT result and scorecard on the iimcat.ac.in website by entering their login ID and username. Each candidate's name, registration number, category, photo, sectional score, overall score, sectional percentile, and overall percentile are listed on the CAT 2021 aggregate scorecard. Only the online version of the CAT 2021 result is accessible. Following the announcement of the CAT results, the IIMs will begin shortlisting candidates for admission to the 2022-23 batch based on CAT cutoffs in order to choose candidates for the WAT-PI phase.
IIM Ahmedabad held the CAT 2021 exam in three sessions on November 28, 2021, and the preliminary answer key was issued on December 8, 2021. The final answer key for the CAT 2021 exam may be issued simultaneously with the results.
The most important document for IIM admission is the CAT scores. The following information will be included on each candidate's CAT 2021 scorecard:
Before attempting to comprehend the distinction between percentile and score, it is necessary to become acquainted with the most recent CAT grading scheme.
|CAT 2021 Marking Scheme|
|Types of Questions||Marks Per Question||Incorrect Answer|
|Multiple Choice Type||+3||-1|
|Descriptive Answer Type (TITA)||+3||No Negative Marking|
The CAT percentile varies. It is largely determined by the number of test participants and their exam scores. When a candidate's percentile is 90 percent, it signifies that he or she outperformed 90% of the other candidates who took the exam.
If 1000 people took the exam and X outperformed them all, then means X outperformed the other 999 people. To find X's CAT percentile, use the following formula:
The CAT percentile can be seen of as a candidate's numerical rank. The following is the expected percentile range for CAT 2021 in terms of the candidates' scores:
|CAT 2021 Percentile (Expected)|
|CAT 2021 Percentile Range||CAT 2021 Overall Score|
The table below shows the patterns of the CAT Percentile in relation to the sectoral scores achieved by applicants in the exam.
|CAT Percentile (Section-wise)|
|Percentile||Score VA-RC||Score DI-LR||Score QA||Overall Score|
|85 percentile (cut off)||45||29||27||95-98|
In general, each applicant receives 3 marks for a correct answer and 1 mark for each incorrect response in this exam. Negative marking is not available for non-MCQ questions. In three phases, the percentile is calculated.
Note: Percentile scores vary from year to year based on the total performance of all exam takers. As a result, candidates should concentrate on improving their scores rather than focusing on percentiles.
Because the CAT is held in many shifts, different sets of question papers are developed to evaluate the candidate's performance. However, the difficulty level of different sets may differ. CAT gives a scaled score, which is extracted after the normalisation procedure, to guarantee that scores are delivered in a just and equitable manner.
Percentile: A percentile is a statistician's term for the number below which a certain percentage of data in a collection of observations fall. For example, if a student receives a 99 percentile in a class of 100 students, it signifies that he or she outperforms 99 other students. The candidate's Percentile is displayed in the CAT result 2021.
Scorecard: A typical CAT Scorecard will include information such as the candidate's name, sectional cutoffs, overall cutoffs, and so on. On January 2, 2021, the CAT 2020 scorecard was released.
Selection Process: The CAT 2021 Eligibility Criteria for admission are determined independently by IIMs and Non-IIM institutes, and each has its own selection process. The results will only be used to select candidates for their Post Graduate / Fellow Management Program(s).
Scores: There are two types of scores overall and sectional. Each IIM has a different sectional score cut off, which must be met in order to be admitted to that college. On the CAT Scorecard, both are mentioned.
Note that simply having a CAT Scorecard does not guarantee a candidate's acceptance into any of the colleges. To get admitted, each candidate must score over the cut-off level in the exam and engage in college counselling.
