How to calculate GATE Score?
The biggest query students will generally have after the GATE exam is how to calculate the GATE score, and what is the normalization score process? Few papers of the GATE exam like Mechanical, Computer Science and Civil Engineering are scheduled in more than one session. Since, the difficulty level of the same paper conducted in different slots may vary, GATE Normalization process is implemented to arrive at an impartial score.
But before understanding the calculation of GATE score, it is necessary to understand the aspects related to this:
- Actual GATE Marks: Actual marks are those marks, students get in their paper out of 100.
- Normalized GATE Marks:
- Many GATE papers are conducted in multiple sessions, and hence to arrive at a normalized score of these multiple session papers, normalization process is applied to normalize the variations in difficulty levels of the question papers across the different slots/sessions.
- This normalization process is done on the basis of the assumption that “in all multi-session GATE papers, the distribution of the abilities of the candidates is the same across all the sessions”.
- GATE Score:
- GATE score is the score which is calculated out of 1000.
- GATE scores for the papers conducted in one session, is calculated by using actual marks only. On the other hand, GATE scores for the papers conducted in multiple sessions, is calculated by converting into normalized marks first and then GATE score.
Formula for calculating normalized marks:
Mij: is the actual marks obtained by the jth candidate in ith session
Mtg: is the average marks of the top 0.1% of the candidates considering all sessions
Mqg: is the sum of mean and standard deviation marks of the candidates in the paper considering all sessions
Mti: is the average marks of the top 0.1% of the candidates in the ith session
Miq: is the sum of the mean marks and standard deviation of the ith session
Formula for calculating GATE Score:
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
Mt: 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

About GATE Exam
The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is a computer-based standardized examination conducted at a national level. Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and 7 Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs- Bombay, Delhi, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Guwahati, Madras and Roorkee) jointly conduct GATE Examination.
It examines the basic understanding of subjects related to engineering and science and students who are seeking an admission to the post graduates program, doctoral program and PSU jobs apply for the GATE exam.
What’s new in GATE Exam 2021?
- Eligibility criteria to appear for GATE-2021 has been relaxed from the minimum 10+2+4 (ongoing) to minimum 10+2+3 (ongoing), enabling the third-year students of undergraduate studies to appear for gate 2021 examination.
- All Test Papers of GATE 2021 will be entirely objective type. The Pattern of questions may include: (i) Multiple-Choice Questions (MCQ), (ii) Multiple Select Questions (MSQs) and (iii) Numerical Answer Type (NAT) questions.
- Two new subjects–Environmental Science and Engineering (ES) and Humanities and Social Science (XH) have been added. The total number of subjects in GATE 2021 is now increased to 27.
- Students applying for GATE 2021 can also opt for two subject papers from the prescribed set of combinations.
What is the reliability of this predictor?
This predictor tool is prepared on the experience and many trials. We have got almost 99% accurate results by using this tool. You can check our testimonials too to check the reliability of this tool.
How are these scores predicted by the Predictor?
We have been teaching GATE students for more than a decade. The prediction is made on the basis of an experienced and qualified faculty team along with past year Data Analysis. We are predicting the scores of students based on actual data of the last 3 years. Almost 90% of our users say that the GATE predictor predicted their score almost 100% Correct.
What is the source of information given in the video?
With more than a decade experience in the industry, we have numerous alumni who have passed out of these colleges or are currently studying in these colleges. Generally, this information is not available on IIT websites, but we have interviewed our own alumni to fetch this information.
If I am taking GATE in my pre final year, will there be any advantage?
GATE does not differentiate between a first time taker or a repeater. So you won’t be getting any advantage in scores. But yes, in the interview this will be an advantage as you can impress the panel by your knowledge despite being in the pre final year.
I have taken GATE 2020, and also I am appearing for GATE 2021. Which score will be considered?
GATE score, for any masters course admission, is valid for 3 years. If you have appeared for GATE in the recent three years, you can apply on the basis of the best score you have.
Will this predictor provide information about IITs only ?
The beauty of this predictor is that it does not only help you select your dream IIT but also gives you information about NITs, PSUs and top Masters’ College in India.
Is there any separate form to be filled for different IITs?
Yes, once the GATE results are out, you will have to visit websites of various IITs to fill their individual admission forms.
How does admission get done in NITs?
- Admission in all 30 National Institute of Technology (NITs) takes place through a common counselling called as CCMT. This takes place generally a month after the GATE results declaration.
- One has to fill the common form, select NIT and branch of preference. Finally, after filling this information the college is allocated. It is very similar to the process which is followed by many state universities to take admission on the basis of JEE exam. There are various rounds of this process.
Can I connect to any alumnus of yours or can I get a Mentor for my interview preparation?
Yes, we provide you with a program called Techno PDP. If you enroll for this, you will be allocated a faculty mentor who will help you to prepare for interviews and also an alumni interaction will be arranged for you over video call. The interview practice and feedback for improvement will be done online. If you wish to enroll for the program please write a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
How is the qualifying cut off for GATE decided?
The qualifying cut off for the GATE exam is decided on the basis of the following factors:
- Total number of candidates appeared for GATE exam
- Total number of seats available
- The difficulty level of exam
- Total number of applications received for the admission in various programs
- The category of the candidates
