How to Calculate the CMAT Score?

CMAT scores are calculated on the basis of the weightage of each question. Here’s how the CMAT scores are arrived at:

Weightage assigned:

  • For every correct answer 4 marks are allotted
  • For every incorrect answer 1 mark is reduced
  • Unanswered questions are not awarded marks
  • The total CMAT score is arrived at by adding the marks allotted

The all India rank and merit list is on the basis of the overall CMAT result. In case, several candidates have the same CMAT score, the ranking is done on the basis of sectional scores as per the following order:

  1. Quantitative Techniques & Data Interpretation
  2. Logical Reasoning
  3. Language Comprehension
  4. General Awareness

How is CMAT Percentile Calculated?

CMAT percentile score is arrived at on the basis of rank vs total number of candidates. Given below is the formula for calculating CMAT percentile.

Formula to Calculate CMAT Percentile:

Percentile P = (100 x Number of candidates who took the examination with raw marks equal to or less than the candidate)/Total number of candidates appeared

For example, if about 10,000 candidates appeared in CMAT and a candidate scored highest marks (340/400). Since they have scored the highest in the exam, their rank will be 1 and the CMAT percentile score will be: 100 x 9999/10,000= 99.99

Your CMAT rank can also be from the given formula:

10,000 – 1/10,000 x 100 = 99.99

For example, In CMAT 2018, three candidates scored 100 percentile and Atul Nimish Kulkarni got the highest score of 341 marks. He was followed by Jhalak Singhal and Maitri Chawra, both of whom scored 335 marks but their overall percentile was 100. Five candidates scored 99.99 percentile (overall) while seven candidates scored 99.98 percentile (overall).

Two or more candidates getting same rank: In case more than one candidate secures the same rank, the same rank will be assigned to all but the names will be displayed alphabetically. The CMAT rank of the next candidate will then be extended by the number of additional students having the same rank. E.g.: if three students are at the 15th Rank then the subsequent student will be ranked as 18th.

What After CMAT 2020 result declaration?

After the results are declared, candidates can apply to colleges accepting CMAT scores for admission. As there no centralized counseling for CMAT, the candidates have to send individual applications to the colleges/institutions of their choice. Most of the MBA colleges accepting CMAT score, conduct Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interview (PI) for the selection process.

GD/PI shortlisting

Based on a minimum CMAT cut off candidates are shortlisted for the GD/PI round. Only those who clear the cut off are selected for GD/PI round. 

Final Admission

In the GD round, candidates are grouped into batches of about 8-10 candidates. Based on a given topic to debate on, the candidates are scored by the session moderators.

The PI round is conducted by a panel of experts and the candidate is assessed based on their confidence, communication and problem-solving skills.
