FMS Delhi Shortlist 2019: Based on Composite Score

Although the maximum composite score awards 100% weight to CAT 2018 score, the candidate is shortlisted on the basis of differential weightage to sectional percentile scores in CAT 2018 Exam. For example: 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. Additional 3 marks have been added to the Composite score so computed in case of women candidates for the purpose of shortlisting for the subsequent rounds. However, the composite score are used only for shortlisting the candidates for GD-PI Process.

CAT 2018 Exam Section Score Weightage
Quantitative Ability (QA)  30%
Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DILR)  30%

Total 100%
