How is CMAT Percentile Calculated?

The CMAT percentile score is calculated on the basis of the rank of a candidate and the total number of candidates who appeared in the exam. Here is the formula for calculating your CMAT percentile prescribed by NTA:

How to calculate CMAT Result

Percentile P = 100 x Number of candidates appeared in 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 you scored the highest marks (350/400). Since you have scored the highest in the exam, your rank will be 1, and your CMAT percentile score will be: 100 x 9999/10,000= 99.99.

CMAT Marking Scheme

According to the CMAT exam pattern, the marking scheme is as follows:

  • For each correct answer, you will be awarded four marks.
  • For each incorrect answer, one mark will be deducted.
  • For each unanswered question, no mark will be allotted.
  • Your total CMAT marks will be calculated by totalling the marks gained or lost in each question.

The all India rank and merit list of CMAT is arrived upon on the basis of the overall CMAT result. In case, the CMAT scores of more than one candidates are the same, the ranking is done on the basis of sectional scores in the following order:

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