MICAT exam scores for MICAT-1 and MICAT-II are further changed to Scaled score using simple process.
Formula Used in MICAT Score Scaling
The sectional score obtained individually by a candidate ‘X’ in a particular component of MICAT-I/MICAT-II,e.g. Verbal Ability (VA) will be converted into Scaled Score using the following simple formula for one of the components, for example Verbal Ability:
Step-1: Scaled Score -VA of a candidate 'X' in MICAT-I/MICAT-II = (Score -VA of the candidate 'X' /Maximum obtained by any candidate amongst the candidates who have appeared in MICAT-I/MICAT-II in VA) multiplied by Maximum Possible Score in VA in MICAT-I/MICAT-II.
Step-2: Similarly Scaled Scores will be calculated for all the MICAT-I/MICAT-II components using sample formula in point i) namely: VA, QADI, GA, DCT and DT.
Step-3: Total MICAT-I/MICAT-II score will be calculated using Scaled Scores for each of the MICAT components, namely: VA, QADI, GA, DCT and DT
MICAT Cut Offs
The exact MICAT cut-offs mentioned above are based on previous years’ MICAT data. They depend on various factors like the applicants’ pool, the distribution of CAT and MICAT scores etc. which may change year to year.
