Differences between MAT Score and Percentile

Many renowned business schools accept students based on their percentile score while others opt for the MAT Score. Hence, it is very vital that you know the differences between them. 

The MAT score is the total marks that a student obtained in the exam in all the sections combined. 

The MAT Percentile on the other hand consists of the relative marks that a candidate gets in the exam. It shows the percentage of the total examinees who have scored lower than the candidate in the exam. A percentile rank is a method of ranking people when compared to the others in the same sample. For example, if you have scored 80 percentile. It means that the score is more than 80 percent of the examinees who appeared for the MAT exam.

How is the MAT Score Calculated?

  • Each section in the MAT exam has 40 questions which are of one mark each. It also mentions that the maximum marks one can get in a section are 40. 
  • The raw score that a candidate gets is then scaled to the 0-100 range.
  • The score for the Indian and the global section is mentioned on the MAT result using the same scale.

How is MAT Composite Score calculated?

  • There is no formula that enables you to calculate the MAT Composite score. 
  • It is given on a scale of 199 to 801. Composite scores which are more than 800 or less than 200 are very rare.
  • All the scores below 200 are mentioned as 199 and the scores above 800 are mentioned as 801. Hence, if you get scores that are less than 199, the composite score that will be reported is 199. Similarly, if you score way above 800, the score will be 801.

How is MAT Percentile calculated?

  • MAT Percentile is influenced by the number of examinees appearing in the test as well as by the scores that they get in the test. 
  • Besides taking into account the MAT composite score or the MAT percentile, many top B- schools also conduct written ability test, group discussion, and personal interview to select the candidates for the courses. 
  • The formula to calculate MAT percentile score is:

MAT Percentile Score = (Composite scores obtained by a candidate/ Total number of candidates) * 100 

With this formula, you can calculate the percentile score obtained in the MAT examination.
