Score Weightage Calculation in Shortlisting Process

Unlike its previous shortlisting process, FMS has started using the composite score in shortlisting for GD-PI rounds at FMS Admissions 2019. Although maximum composite score awards 100% weightage to CAT 2018 exam score, the candidate is shortlisted on the basis of differential weightages in CAT 2018. Composite Score = ∑(Score in Section * Weightage)/Max Marks for the Section.

The process of calculation of composite score can get a candidate shortlisted despite scoring low in Quant but high in VARC and overall low or a candidate who scores low in VARC but high in Quant and overall high percentile in CAT exam. An additional 3 marks have been added to the composite score in case of women candidates for the purpose of shortlisting. However, the composite scores are used only for shortlisting the candidates for GD-PI-Extempore Process. The sectional weightage awarded to CAT 2018 score in arriving at the composite score in shortlisting by FMS are as follows:
