Percentile predictor for CAT 2018 works on last 2 years data. Percentile being a relative factor displaying consistency over the years makes this model precise. However, CAT also implements the scaling of scores which is a factor that may cause differences in predicted percentile and actuals. Candidates will know their actual percentile when CAT Result 2018 is announced in January. According to IIM Calcutta, result will be out in second week of January. However, as per result analysis trends, result should come around January 10, 2019.
CAT 2018 exam was conducted on November 25, 2018, in two slots. Then on November 30, 2018, the institute released response sheets of all test takers. Answer key was released within a week on December 7, 2018. Since candidate response sheets, as well as CAT 2018 answer keys, are available, therefore now candidates know their exact number of correct and incorrect answers. This makes predicting CAT Percentile more accurate than ever before.
The exam with 34, 32, 34 questions respectively in VARC, DILR, QA was judged to be of moderate difficulty level. Albeit QA section was deemed to be extremely tough. In VARC, the number of non-MCQs were 7, and number of MCQs was 27. Likewise in DILR number of non-MCQs was 8 and those of MCQs was 24. In QA number of non-MCQs was 12 and number of MCQs was 22. Candidates get 3 marks for every correct answer for both types of questions. Negative marking is 1 mark for wrong answers only in MCQ questions.
Since marking scheme is different for MCQs and non-MCQs, it is important to enter their number of correct and incorrect answers separately in CAT Percentile Predictor 2018 by AglaSem.
Tech team lead Nikhil says, "This is the first time we have launched CAT Percentile Predictor, and we are very excited about it. There are already many percentile predictors online, but we strive to be better, less complicated, and more updated. Feedback is welcome! We will definitely make changes that make it more suitable for students on basis of their inputs."
