CAT 2017 - Score and Percentile range

This article contains our first estimates of CAT 2017 scores and corresponding percentiles. For detailed and in-depth information, register and visit our CAT Score Predictor tool.

We know that all of you must be getting impatient to understand how your CAT 2017 score would correspond to CAT percentiles!  Afterall, that is what would guide your MBA journey! So, here is our first observation based on inputs received from the CAT experts, who appeared for the test in the two slots -

 

(a) Test takers found that the VARC section was the easiest;

(b) Test takers found that the DILR section was the toughest;

(c) Test takers also found that the QA section was easy, although not as easy as VARC

(d) There were also differences in the difficulty-level of DILR section in Slot 1 and Slot 2 (the one in Slot 2 was easier)

(e) Lastly, the QA section in the Slot 2 was a bit tougher than that in Slot 1

 

Based on these observations, here is the basic expected scores and corresponding percentiles for CAT 2017 for each test slots:

 

  Slot 1   Slot 2
Percentiles VA-RC DI-LR QA Overall   VA-RC DI-LR QA
