How to get a copy of the CAT 2021 scorecard

Apart from the IIMs, CAT results will be used by over 88 additional non-IIM universities for admission to their management programmes this year.
Candidates for the CAT are graded in percentiles rather than percentages. The candidate’s overall scaled score is the sum of his or her scaled scores in each of the three sections. The percentage of candidates who receive a scaled score less than or equal to the candidate’s scaled score is referred to as the percentile.
What happens after the result in CAT 2021?
The list of candidates who have been shortlisted for the next round of selection will be posted on the individual IIMs’ websites. Shortlisted candidates will receive interview letters directly from each IIM. An aptitude test, a group exercise, and an interview are usually included. The criteria for shortlisting vary by IIM, and can include all three or just one of them. The pandemic may have an impact on the interview rounds and other aspects of the process.
