How to Calculate CMAT Result in Percentile?

To calculate CMAT Percentile, NTA prescribes the below-mentioned formula:

  • CMAT Percentile = (Number of candidates who scored EQUAL TO or LESS THAN the candidate)
                            (Total number of the candidates who appeared)
  • The NTA Score/ CMAT Percentile denotes the percentage of candidates who have scored equal or lesser than a candidate. E.g. If, out of 10000 candidates who attempted the exam, Candidate ‘A’ secured No.1 rank. His CMAT percentile will be:
  • Percentile (P) = 10000 -  1  * 100 = 99.99
