Scaled Score vs Percentile in CAT 2017

CAT 2017 results were declared today (8th January) and our team has been tirelessly collecting data for the mapping of Score vs Percentile. For CAT 2016 we had compiled a list with the help of our students and some other CAT aspirants who sent us their scorecards. We have gotten approximately 100 scorecards till now and we are able to make some pretty good projections from the same.

We are working on the same for this year as well. We will release all this information in public domain and hopefully, it would help future CAT aspirants make a better judgment.

If you want to contribute to this list, please email your scorecard to [email protected] It will help us make the data better and stronger for future aspirants.

Summary of Score vs Percentile in CAT 2017 Exam

Key Insights of Score vs Percentile of CAT 2017

90 percentile in CAT 2017 was at roughly 39% marks (Compared to 34% in CAT 2016)
95 percentile in CAT 2017 was at roughly 46% marks (Compared to 41% in CAT 2016)
99 percentile in CAT 2017 was at roughly 58% marks (Compared to 51% in CAT 2016)

This clearly shows that the paper was easier than CAT 2016 but if you look at historical data, it wasn’t that easy. It was marginally tougher than CAT 2015Another important point to note is that Verbal Aptitude and Reading Comprehension section was significantly easier than Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation whereas Quantitative Aptitude was moderate.

To get 90 percentile in CAT 2017, you needed the following scores:
Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension: 56 marks (19 questions)
This was marginally higher than that for CAT 2016 – 54 marks

Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation: 28 marks (9 questions)
This was exactly the same as CAT 2016.

Quantitative Aptitude: 45 marks (15 questions)
This was significantly higher than CAT 2016 when it was only 11 questions.

Another interesting point to note was that the Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation section was so hard that if you did not attempt a single question – you would have still got 19 percentile.Doing 1 question would take you at 33%ile and just doing 3 questions would have taken you above 50 percentile. Let that sink in!
Approximately 38000 students scored negative in the Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation section.
Approximately 1 Lakh students were not able to solve 3 out of 32 questions in 1 hour.
It is extremely unfair, in my personal opinion, to have one section so much tougher than the others. It does not serve any practical purpose other than to scare some students.
