CMAT Exam Notification: February, 2022

CMAT Answer Key

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has released the official answer key for CMAT. Along with it, question papers and responses of the candidates are also available. The Common Management Admission Test was held on March 31. Candidates who appeared for the exam can download the answer key at cmat.nta.nic.in.

However, since CMAT has been conducted in 2 shifts, the raw scores will be converted to percentile (NTA) scores. To calculate the percentile score NTA will first calculate the raw scores of the candidates using the marking scheme of the exam. Thereafter this raw score will be converted into percentile score. NTA score / percentile score is calculated using the formula below:

100 X {(No. of candidates appeared from your session with raw score equal to less than your score) ÷ (Total number of candidates appeared in your session)}

The CMAT result will also have an all India rank of the candidates. In case scores are the same for more than one candidate, the ranking will be done on sectional scores considered in the order of: – quantitative techniques and data interpretation, logical reasoning, language comprehension, general awareness.
