Last Updated - October 01, 2016

MAT 2016 Factors Affecting Cut off

Once the exam is over and the result is declared, the cut off is announced. Based upon MAT 2016 cut off, the B-schools accepting MAT 2016 scores declare their own cut off for admissions. This cut off is primarily based upon the marks obtained by the students and the number of seats available.

The total marks of the MAT 2016 exam are 800. The MAT 2016 cut off generally varies with each college between 700 to 60, with top colleges accepting students with marks ranging between 500-700. Generally, the cut off is declared in percentile form MAT score

By percentile it means, the number of students that fall below that particular score. In other terms, number of candidates a scoring candidate is above. For example a candidate scoring 93 percentile would mean that he has scored above 93% of the students appearing for the exam.

There are numerous factors affecting the cut off as listed below:

  • Total number of seats offered – More the seats available, lower would be the cut off for the particular institute.
  • Number of students appearing for the exam. This is directly related to the cut off. Higher the number of candidates appearing for the exam, higher will be the cut off.
  • Difficulty level of exam – This factor is inversely related. Whenever the exams are on the difficult side, the cut offs tend to fall.
  • Previous years cut off trends- This is more for the predictive analysis. This can help candidates understand what to expect for cut off for their preferred institutes.
  • Previous year admission trends – This is more or less like the previous one and is generally used for predictions.
  • Average performance of the candidate in the exam
  • Lowest and average marks scored in the exam
