GATE 2018 NEWS
NATIONAL LEVEL ONLINE TEST
In 2016, examination for CE, EC, CS, EE and ME papers is being held 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 quite 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 CE, CS, EC, EE and ME papers.
Calculation of GATE scores for all papers will be done based on the following formula:
GATE score= Sq + (St - Sq) [(M - Mq)/ (Mt- Mq)]
In the above formula,
M = marks obtained by the candidate
Mq= qualifying marks for general category candidate
Mt= is the mean of the marks of the top 10 of the candidates who appeared in the paper
