What is Composite Score in MAT
The obvious query by the candidates who have appeared or would appear in next MAT exam is – what is the composite score in MAT and how does this MAT Composite Score impact on MBA admission?
How to calculate MAT Composite score since the MAT scoring pattern is different from other MBA entrance exams - is the common query. The simplest way to understand the MAT Composite Score is to know and understand how the score calculation is done in MAT:
- There are 160 questions in MAT which are divided in 4 sections. The GK section is 5th which is not counted in Composite score calculation.
- Scores of these 4 sections were taken into account to calculate your percentile in MAT Dec 2018 exam.
- Each question carries maximum 1 raw mark and after scaling process, your MAT raw score goes up many times.
- This score is converted to highest Composite Score of 800.
- Roughly it means that your 1 question will carry 5 marks in your final Composite Score.
- Accordingly 160 marks are converted to 800 marks. On the basis of this Composite score, you will get your percentile.
Calculation of MAT composite score and percentile: Understand with example
If you have written MAT Dec 2018 exam on December 9 or 15, and your raw score is scaled to composite score between 765 to 775 out of 800, you are supposed to get a percentile between 99 to 99.5.
If you score a raw score of around 70 in 4 sections of MAT, it implies that after taking into account the negative marking of ¼ your 70 marks would become more than 350 or so. This will be the composite score in MAT which will get you a percentile of about 90.
If you have scored around 85 or 95 raw marks, your composite score will go around 750 and would get you a percentile somewhere around 99.
