PAP Score for the candidate:

PAP = (0.25*A+0.35*B+0.40*C)/10

b. Work Experience (WE)

For the work experience of completed months x (at the time of CAT 2015 registration), the candidates will be assigned a WE score using the following formula:

WE = 0                                           for x < 6

WE = 0                                           for x > 60

WE = x/30                                     for 6 <= x <= 30

WE = 1 - ((x-30)/30)                     for 30 < x <= 60

The Final Selection

Selection at this stage will strictly be based on the ranks of the candidates computed separately for each category (General/SC/ST/NC-OBC/DAP) on the basis of their Final Scores (FS). The numbers selected in different categories will be in proportions mandated by the law.


The FS of a candidate, who meet the CAT-2015 cut-offs mentioned in Table 1 and who expresses and reconfirms his/her desire to pursue the candidature further by the stipulated date, will be computed using the following rule:


FS

=

0.50 * (CAT Total Score /Maximum1 CAT Total Score)

+



0.30 * (PAP Score)


+



0.20 * (WE Score)
