Normalization And Calculation Of GATE Score

GATE Scores are normalized to take into consideration various variations in the multiple papers as conducted. These variations could be related to various factors and especially the difficulty level of the examination. This normalization is based on the assumption that in a multi-session GATE Examination, the abilities of the candidates are equally distributed across all the sessions.

This is an important assumption as the number of candidates that appear for multi-examination is generally large and the candidates are randomly allocated these sessions. GATE Exam authorities also make sure that the number of candidates in each session are of same order of magnitude. 


The formula generated to calculate the normalized mark  of the jth candidate in the ith session is;



 : Actual marks obtained by the 𝑗 𝑡ℎ candidate in 𝑖 𝑡ℎ session

     : Average marks of the top 0.1% of the candidates considering all sessions

       : Sum of mean and standard deviation marks of the candidates in the paper considering all sessions

       : Average marks of the top 0.1% of the candidates in the 𝑖 𝑡ℎ session

       : Sum of the mean marks and standard deviation of the 𝑖 𝑡ℎ session

The score of the candidate is calculated using a certain formula which is defined below;



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

 : qualifying marks for general category candidate in the paper

: 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)

  : 350, is the score assigned to 

   : 900, is the score assigned to 

In the GATE 2017 score formula, 𝑀𝑞 is usually 25 marks (out of 100) or +𝜎, depending on whichever is larger. Here 𝜇 is the mean and 𝜎 is the standard deviation of marks of all the candidates who appeared in the examination.
