CMAT Tie-Breaking Criteria

The authorities will soon release CMAT 2022 Merit List in PDF format. Last year, NTA did not release CMAT Merilt List, however, this year it is expected as percentile scores are not mentioned in CMAT 2022 scorecards. CMAT Merit List will contain the candidate’s name, percentile score, and the AIR. 

CMAT Tie-Breaking Criteria 2022

In case multiple candidates score the same in CMAT 2022, the ranking will be done on the basis of CMAT sectional score considered in the below mentioned order:

  1. Quantitative Techniques & Data Interpretation
  2. Logical Reasoning
  3. Language Comprehension
  4. General Awareness
  5. Innovation and Entrepreneurship

If the tie still persists, candidates secure the same ranking by going through the above process, the same rank is assigned to all of them but is displayed by sorting their names alphabetically. The rank in CMAT of the next candidate is then extended by the number of students having the same rank. For example, if 3 students are at 6th rank then subsequent students will be ranked as 9th.
