Candidates with the lowest 10% performances in any of the sections (A or B or C) of C-CAT will not be qualified for ranking in that particular section and its higher sections. Even after the removal of the lowest 10% performers as stated above, if there exist candidates in any section with zero or less than zero marks, then these candidates will also not be qualified for ranking.

All qualified candidates will be awarded Category I ranks based on their performance in Section A. Qualified candidates who have selected Category II and III will also be awarded Category II ranks based on their total performance in Sections A+B. Qualified candidates who have selected Category III in the C-CAT application form will also obtain Category III ranks based on their total performance in Sections A+B+C.


Important Notes:

(i) If a candidate has applied for Category II or III, but is not qualified in Section A due to poor performance in it, he/she will not get any rank in Category I or II or III, even if the candidate has got good marks in Section B and C.

If two or more candidates have acquired the same marks in Section A or Sections A+B or Sections A+B+C, then the candidate having more marks in Section A will be given the higher rank. If these candidates have the same marks in Section A also, then the candidate having higher value in the ratio of „number of correct answers / number of attempted questions‟ in the specific section required only for that category of courses will be given the higher rank. Candidates who have the same value of this ratio, and having the same total as well as Section-A marks will be given the same C-CAT rank.

Admissions to C-DAC's PG Diploma courses at various training centres will be offered in the order of ranks obtained in C-CAT and based on the preferences of courses and centres given by the candidates during online counselling. Only those candidates who are in the C-CAT rank-list will be considered for admissions to C-DAC's PG Diploma courses.
