What is the difference between MAT score and MAT percentile? Know the answer and also know the formulae as well as detailed procedure to calculate MAT score and percentile.

MAT score vs percentile - Candidates seeking MBA admission through MAT exam score must know the difference between MAT score and MAT percentile. While the MAT score refers to the candidate's raw (actual) score in the exam, MAT percentile refers to the candidate's relative performance with respect to all the candidates. In this article you will read all about MAT score vs percentile, including MAT percentile calculation formula, process and parameters and cut offs.

MAT Score vs Percentile

MAT exam is conducted in multiple modes, slots and on different days. The questions of each test are different from each other. This may result in one exam session being more difficult than the other or vice vera. To balance this out, MAT scores are adjusted during the scaling process. MAT scores are scaled on the same level so as to ensure that MAT result of every candidate is represented on the same level of ability regardless of the mode or the date of the exam.  

For calculation of MAT Composite Score and MAT Percentile, marks obtained in the Indian & Global Environment section is not taken into consideration. The scaled score of first four sections and the composite score are based on the performance of applicants who took the test in 1996. In 1996, it was defined in a way that a MAT score of about 50 marks in a section and about 500 marks on a composite scale represent the average performance of the given group.

Details Mentioned on MAT Result-cum-Scorecard

MAT results for all sessions of a particular phase are released together. The MAT result cum scorecard contains candidate's sectional scores, composite scores as well as percentiles. The following details are mentioned on the MAT result/ scorecard

  • Scores obtained in Language Comprehension, Mathematical Skills, Data Analysis & Sufficiency, Intelligence & Critical Reasoning and Indian & Global Environment
  • Composite Score of the first four sections of MAT
  • Sectional Percentiles of all five sections of MAT
  • Overall MAT percentile as well as overall Composite Score

What is MAT Score?

The MAT score or MAT composite score is the total marks calculated on the basis of performance in the first four sections of the exam as these sections are related to the skills required over a longer period of time in the management field. The following points listed by AIMA will further explain calculation process of MAT composite score.

  • The MAT composite score is given on a scale of 199 to 801. The composite score on MAT result, less than 200 or more than 800 is rare.
  • Sectional scores less than 20 and more than 80 are rare 
  • All scores below 200 are stated as 199 and all scores above 800 are reported 801. This means, even if you get less than 199, your composite score will be reported as 199. Similarly, for scores above 801, it will be reported as 801 only.

What is MAT Percentile?

MAT score and MAT percentile are different. In the MAT scorecard, a percentile is mentioned for each of the sectional scores. This MAT percentile can be understood as percentage of the all candidates who scored below a candidate based on administration of the entire exam. For example, if 5,000 candidates appeared for a particular MAT paper, the percentile of each candidate will be calculated basis the performance of rest of the 4,999 candidates.

How to Calculate MAT Percentile?

By the above explanation of MAT Composite Score calculation, it is understood that how AIMA takes raw MAT scores and represents it on a scale of 199 to 801. However, for calculation of MAT Percentile, the following formula is applied:

                       Composite Score obtained by a candidate X 100     = MAT percentile

Total number of candidates  

MAT Percentile indicates the percentage of candidates scoring less than a particular candidate in MAT exam. Some of the B-Schools accepting MAT scores offer admission on the basis of composite scores while the remaining take MAT percentile for final selection of candidates. Besides, MAT score, many MBA colleges select candidates on the basis of Group Discussion (GD), Personal Interview (PI) and Written Ability Test (WAT).  

Difference Between MAT Score and MAT Percentile

Now that you've understood 'what is a MAT score?' and 'what is a MAT percentile?', it is easy for you to decipher the difference between the two. If simply put, MAT score is candidate's actual performance in the exam and MAT percentile is a candidate's performance in comparison to other candidates. Another major difference between MAT score and MAT percentile is that the former is not considered for admission by MBA colleges. The MAT accepting colleges shortlist candidates on the basis of their overall MAT percentile.

Here is a small comparison to help you decide which exam you want to take: (A) Advantages of Choosing MAT Over CMAT:
1. The benefit of giving MAT over CMAT is that you can attempt MAT four times in the same academic session to improve the exam score. The CMAT exam is conducted once a year and provides less scope for improvement in score.
2. The MAT is conducted in three modes: computer-based mode, paper-based mode, and internet-based mode. Therefore, you can choose the exam mode according to your convenience. On the other hand, the CMAT is conducted only in computer-based mode. (B) Advantages of Choosing CMAT Over MAT:
1. The CMAT score has more acceptability than the MAT. In contrast to the 700 MBA colleges that accept MAT. Over 1300 B schools admit students based on the CMAT. It includes top B schools such as the Great Lakes Institute of Management, Chennai.
2. The CMAT is regarded as the second-best option after the CAT for admission to India's top business schools. Its score is valid for one year, unlike the MAT. You can choose MAT for convenience, but CMAT is recommended for top colleges.
