“Shortlist the B-Schools before they Shortlist you. Predict your college with CMAT Pathfinder”
The raw score will be calculated by assigning:
(a) + 4 points for the correct answer
(b) -1 point for incorrect answer
(c) 0 point for no answer
This scoring methodology ensures that the candidates are awarded the points for what they know, while points are deducted for inappropriate random guessing. Hypothetically the range of scores will be -100 to 400 (marks).
Candidates will be provided with raw scores for each section.
A national merit ranking will be prepared based on the raw scores. In case raw scores are identical for more than one candidate, the ranking will be based on sectional scores considered in the order of:
(a) Quantitative Techniques & Data Interpretation
(b) Logical Reasoning
(c) Language Comprehension
(d) General Awareness
In case more than one candidate secures same ranking as per the above criteria, the same Rank will be assigned to all of them but will be displayed by sorting their names alphabetically.
The Rank of the subsequent candidate will then be extended by the number of additional students having the same Rank. For example if three students are at 25th Rank then subsequent student will be ranked as 28th.
Admission authorities and institutions, however, will be free to take their own decision at the time of admission as to what weightage they wish to give to a particular section.
The National merit list will be prepared and displayed in the public domain indicating Roll Number, Rank and the Raw Scores.
The candidates will be able to see and download their score cards indicating section wise marks scored, total marks scored and Rank in the All India merit list.
The discrepancies if any in Question Papers will be adequately addressed by the Steering Committee.
