1. Calculating CAT Test Performance Score:

Following calculation is done on the basis of applicants’ CAT 2017 performance (percentile obtained in sections 1&2, where section 1 was QA & DI and section 2 was VA & LR).

Performance in the two sections of CAT 2017 will comprise 55% of the final score of the candidate. This 55% consists of 30% for VAP and 25% for QAP


VAP = VA percentile of the applicant/ Maximum VA percentile

QAP = QA percentile of the applicant/ Maximum QA percentile

2. Calculation of Past Academic Performance (PAP) Score:

Applicants’ academic performance (marks obtained) in 10th Standard Examination, 12th Standard Examination and Bachelor’s Degree Examination is considered in PAP Score.

  • For 10th and 12th Standards: The eligible students will be assigned rating scores ‘A’ and ‘B’ based on their percentage of marks obtained in 10th and 12th standard examinations respectively.
  • For Bachelor’s Degree: The eligible students will be assigned a rating score ‘C’ based on the percentage of marks received in the Bachelor’s degree.

Following table shows the calculation of these three scores i.e. A, B & C

The final Past Academic Performance (PAP) Score will be calculated using the following formula:

PAP = (0.30 * A + 0.35 * B + 0.35 * C)/10

3. Calculation of Work Experience Score:

Work Experience Score will be calculated or assigned on the basis of number of months of work experience.

WE = 0 for w <= 6

WE = 0 for w > 48

WE = w/24 for 6 < w <= 24

WE = 1 – ((w-24)/24) for 24 < w <= 48

Where ‘w’ is the number of completed months of work experience.

Stage 3: Final Selection

Selection at final stage will be based on the ranks computed for each category (General/SC/ST/NC-OBC/PWD) on the basis of their Final Scores (FS).

TP = Test Performance

PAP = Past Academic Performance

WE = Work Experience
