Each candidate is first scored section-wise then the overall score is arrived at by totaling the section-wise scores.
Thereafter, these section-wise and overall scores (raw scores) are normalized to arrive at a scaled CAT score.
The normalized scores are converted into percentiles which are reported on the CAT scorecard.
What is CAT Normalization Process?
The CAT exam is conducted in two slots and also the difficulty level of the exam of 1 session varies from the other. to make sure equity within the marking process, CAT authorities follow a normalization process where the marks of each candidate are scaled.
Parameters are taken into consideration during CAT normalization process:
Top 10 percentiles
Lowest 10 percentiles
