What is the Selection process?
Each IIM shortlists candidates for the second stage of selection which may be independent of each other. However, the process may include Written Ability Test (WAT), Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interviews (PI). The performance in CAT 2016 examination is an important component in the admission process.
What is Normalisation of scores?
Normalisation was introduced in CAT when the exam started happening in multiple batches. As the exam was conducted in two slots this time, to ensure that aspirants who took the exam in two different batches are compared fairly while calculating percentiles, their scores are normalised to calculate what CAT score card referred to as ‘scaled score’.
The exact process of normalisation is clear to only concerned authorities but it should naturally factor in things like difficulty of questions, sequence (order) of questions, and might include locational fine tuning.
To elaborate — let’s say two students took the exam in two different slots but both of them scored 30 marks in a section. Based on the difference of difficulty of the section across two exams, their scores might be scaled to different numbers. The scaled scores, which are fairer for comparison, are then used to calculate percentiles.”
This year, the registrations for the Common Admission Test (CAT) to Indian Institutes of Management and other leading B-schools have shot up to a seven-year high, with 2,32,434 applications received for CAT 2016 as against 2,18,664 registrations for the test last year.
