One of the most important aspects of the CAT exam that you must consider is how you score, and the percentile you receive. As we all know, the CAT results were declared recently. So based on the difficulty level of each slot of the CAT exam 2023, IIMs will convert the raw score scaled score, and then it is converted into the percentile. Based on the scores obtained from our students, we have scaled their scores and finalised the CAT 2023 score vs percentile. In this article, we will provide you with a detailed explanation of what is scaled score in CAT and also will provide you with the CAT Score vs Percentile 2023 from the percentile range of 60 to 100 Percentile.

## What is the Raw Score in CAT?

## What is the Scaled Score in CAT?

When you see your CAT score on your scorecard, it is the scaled score. Your original raw score will be varied based on the difficulty level of that section of your particular slot. For example, if the QA section in your slot is the most difficult among the three slots, your QA raw score will be increased, and that increased score will be your Scaled score. So, Scaling is simply the adjustment made to each section of your exam to make it comparable across all the slots and also for a fair marking system across the slots.

## What is CAT Percentile?

A percentile is a unit of measurement used to calculate the percentage of students in the merit list who are higher or lower than you. For example, getting 70% on the CAT signifies that 70% of the students who took the exam scored lower than you. As a result, candidates with a 70 percentile or higher imply that they are in the top 30 percent of those who took the exam.

## How many marks is 99.9 percentile in CAT 2023?

## Importance of analyzing Score Vs Percentile

1. Understanding the Competition: CAT is competitive, with more than 3 lakhs of aspirants each year. By analyzing how much score is needed for say "X" percentile, you can understand the level of competition as well as the scoring patterns. This knowledge can help you set realistic targets for your preparation.
2. Study Plan Strategy: Knowing the relationship between score and percentile can help you identify key areas to focus on. For instance, if certain sections of the CAT have a more significant impact on percentile ranks, you might choose to allocate more study time to those areas.
3. Setting Realistic Goals: By understanding what scores correspond to what percentiles, you can set realistic goals for yourself. This is important for maintaining motivation and focus during your preparation period. Unrealistic goals, on the other hand, can lead to unnecessary stress and burnout which can significantly impact your preparation.
