IIM Ahmedabad is anticipated to release the CAT 2021 results shortly. IIMs have announced results on the first Saturday of January for the last three years. According to this, the CAT 2021 results should be available on January 1, 2022. However, no precise date has been announced by IIM-A. As a result, there’s a chance it’ll be pushed back. Regardless, the IIM will release the results in the first week of January 2022.
The CAT exam was held on November 29, 2020, last year. On December 8, 2020, the CAT 2020 answer key was made available. The CAT 2020 results were released on January 2, 2021. There was an eight-day gap between the exam date and the answer key. The CAT 2020 result was released 34 days after the test date. If the gap between the publication date of the results and the exam date for 2021 is the same as it was for 2020, the projected release date of CAT 2021 is January 1, 2022.
CAT 2019 took place on November 24, 2019. On November 29, 2019, the CAT 2019 Answer Key was made available. On January 4, 2020, the CAT 2019 results were announced. The CAT 2019 result was released 41 days after the test date. The date for the CAT 2019 was also announced on January 1st.
The CAT 2021 result is determined using the CAT exam’s final answer key. Each right answer is worth three points, and there is a one-point reduction for each incorrect response in MCQ questions; there is no negative marking in TITA questions. The raw CAT scores are then translated into scaled scores. The scaled scores are then turned into percentiles, in which the entire number of applicants is computed and assigned a rank, and the percentile is derived on that basis.

CAT 2021 was taken by around 1.92 lakh applicants. The CAT exam was given at 438 test centers spanning over 156 cities in India. On December 8, the CAT 2021 answer key for all three sessions of the entrance test was issued, and applicants could file complaints to the answer key until December 11.
“To guarantee fairness and equity in comparing applicants’ results across multiple test sessions, the scores of candidates should be submitted to a procedure of Normalisation,” an official release explained the CAT normalization process.
“The Normalisation method will correct for location and scale disparities in score distributions across different forms,” it went on to say. The scores will be further normalized across different parts after being normalized across different forms. The Scaled Scores achieved through this approach will be transformed into percentiles for shortlisting purposes.”
