CAT 2016 Expected Percentile

Based on inputs received from the test takers & experts who appeared for the test in the two slots following is our observation.

Out of the three sections students found VA & RC as the easiest section. DI-LR was marginally easier whereas Quant was slightly more difficult in both slots compared to last year. Hence we can say that the difficulty levels in both the slots were comparable in CAT 2016.

Following table shows the expected percentiles at different raw scores for both slots.

Percentile VA-RC DI-LR QA Overall
99 65 48 50 155-160
95 58 43 42 135-140
90 51 38 33 115-120
85 46 33 28 100-105
