How is CMAT Merit List is Prepared
The scores are calculated on the basis of marking scheme, which is +4 for each correct answer and -1 for each incorrect answer. A national merit ranking system is arrived based on total score obtained by a test taker.
In case more than one candidate obtains the same rank, similar rank is awarded to all of them but is displayed by arranging their names alphabetically. The Rank of the subsequent candidate is then extended by the number of additional students having the same Rank.
Percentile calculation formula: Percentile P = ((N- Rank of the candidate)/ N) x 100 (Where P is percentile and N is total number of candidates appeared for exam)
After the result gets officially declared, participating institutes announce shortlist of candidates based on their respective cutoff scores. The shortlisted candidates have to appear for the further selection procedure of Group Discussion or Writing Ability Test and Personal Interview. There is no common counselling for CMAT and institutes conduct their admission procedure individually. You have to apply for B-schools separately in order to be shortlisted by the respective institutes.
