GATE Score Formula

After the evaluation of the answers, the raw marks obtained by a candidate will be converted to a normalized GATE Score.

The GATE score will be computed using the formula given below.

Calculation of Normalized Marks for CE, CS, EC, EE and ME papers (multi-session papers)

In GATE 2016, examination for some papers may be conducted in multi-sessions. Hence, for these papers, a suitable normalization is applied to take into account any variation in the difficulty levels of the question papers across different sessions. The normalization is done based on the fundamental assumption that “in all multi-session GATE papers, the distribution of abilities of candidates is the same across all the sessions”. This assumption is justified since the number of candidates appearing in multi-session papers in GATE 2016 is large and the procedure of allocation of session to candidates is random. Further it is also ensured that for the same multi-session paper, the number of candidates allotted in each session is of the same order of magnitude.

Based on the above, and considering various normalization methods, the committee arrived at the following formula for calculating the normalized marks for the multi-session papers.

GATE Score = Sq + (St − Sq) (M − Mq)/ (M̅t − Mq)

In the above formulae

M: marks obtained by the candidate (actual marks for single session papers and normalized marks for multi-session papers)

Mq: is the qualifying marks for general category candidate in the paper

M̅t: is the mean of marks of top 0.1% or top 10 (whichever is larger) of the candidates who appeared in the paper (in case of multi-session papers including all sessions)

Sq: 350, is the score assigned to Mq

St: 900, is the score assigned to M̅t

In the GATE Result 2016 score formula, Mq is usually 25 marks (out of 100) or +σ , whichever is larger. Here μ is the mean and σ is the standard deviation of marks of all the candidates who appeared in the paper.
