CAT 18 Analysis

We will be providing you with a plethora of inputs and analysis post the CAT to help you assess your performance and plan your next steps accordingly. To this end, as we do every year, we have lined up the following features for you:

Features Live on CAT day

  1. CAT 2018 Expert Analysis” Our experts will analyze the CAT 2018 paper section by section and list out the possible cutoffs - both overall and sectional.

  2. The “Scaled Score Predictor” feature will predict the Scaled Scores, both sectional and overall, that your performance is expected to fetch you in your CAT scorecard. This is the first time that anyone in the country will be doing such a prediction, backed by all the relevant, in-depth understanding of the scaling and equating processes that the IIMs would be performing on the raw scores, to account for variations in difficulty levels across slots and across sections.

  3. The “Percentile Predictor” will predict the sectional and overall percentiles that your performance is expected to get you in the CAT. Please note that the percentiles can be correctly predicted only after an accurate and process-based calculation of scaled scores, as mentioned above.

  4. The “IIM and top B-school's Call Predictor” will consider all possible inputs, starting from your CAT performance, your expected scaled scores and percentiles, along with a host of your profile related information, that you will share with us, and predict your chances of getting a call from each of the IIMs. This process will be done by applying, strictly and comprehensively, the selection procedures as laid out by each of the IIMs, incorporating all relevant aspects like normalization of academic scores across education streams & state boards, weightage to work-ex, and diversity etc.

  5. After CAT2018 results are declared:

  6. The “Actual Raw Score Calculator / CAT Scorecard Analysis” will enable you to know your actual raw scores and also accuracy in the actual CAT, given the final scaled scores that you will get in your CAT2018 scorecard. Our understanding of the normalizing and equating process of the CAT will enable us to back-calculate and give you accurate information about your "true test performance" by filtering out all the mystery/effect of the scaling and equating that is done by the IIMs, before giving out the scorecards.
