Scaling in CAT 2019
There seems to be an up-scaling of 5 marks in SLOT 2 DILR and 1 marks down each in QA & VARC.
Lot of aspirants are talking about difficulty level difference of Slot 1 and Slot 2 in CAT 2019. It is apparent that there maybe some differences in Slot 1 and Slot Difficulty level. So how does it fare out in percentile calculations?
Digging into the Equipercentile Method of Normalisation followed by CAT and major examinations like MHCET, IBPS, etc.
Summary of the process is as follows:
1. For each slot (1 and 2), scaled scores will be calculated by giving equivalent scaling for each section.
2. Then in each slot (1 and 2), percentiles will be calculated within each slot. (Assuming each slot had 1 lac exam takers, your percentile will be calculated from those 1 lac exam takers). So it does not matter if your slot was easy or difficult.
3. Each percentile of each slot will be mapped to each other. Like scaled score of the 100th percentile of each slot will be mapped to each other. Similarly, 95th percentile of each slot will be mapped to each other.
So ultimately it is your performance in your slot that matters. Commenting on the difficulty level of others slot is not warranted. It does not matter if the paper was easy or difficult or moderate. If it was difficult, it was difficult for all people in your slot.
