GATE 2018 SCORE CALCULATION
NATIONAL LEVEL ONLINE TEST
Marks obtained in GATE and GATE Scores are two different entities. After the evaluation of answers, the raw marks (actual marks obtained in GATE) will be considered for calculating GATE Score.
GATE is held in multiple sessions for some papers (CS. CE, EC, EE & ME) and has a different level of difficulty. In order to consider all the candidates on the same platform, the exam authority normalizes marks. On the basis of qualifying marks, these raw marks and normalised marks will be used for computing GATE Score.
Post declaration of GATE Result, the score card will be released at GATE GOAPS. GATE Score card contains marks obtained out of 100, qualifying marks and GATE Score obtained out of 1000.
The normalization is done by assuming, “in multi-session GATE papers, the distribution of abilities of candidates is same across all the sessions”. This fundamental assumption is taken for calculation of normalized scores because the test takers are large in numbers and the allocation of the session is random.
Thus, the normalization of marks of jth candidate in ith session is Mij is given by-
Further, the graph can help understand the relationship between the two scores better.
Graph showing the linear relationship between "actual marks" and "normalized marks" of a candidate, in a multiple-session subject (CE, EE, ME, EE or CE) of GATE.
Mgt = average marks of top 0.1 % candidates in all sessions of that subject.
Mgq = mean + standard deviation, of marks of all candidates in all sessions of that subject.
Mti = average marks of top 0.1 % candidates in the ith session of that subject.
Miq = mean + standard deviation, of marks of all candidates in the ith session of that subject.
For GATE Papers conducted in a single session, actual marks obtained in GATE will only be used in determining GATE score. By using the following formula, GATE score will be computed. GATE score calculation formula is also imprinted on the score card-
𝑴: marks obtained in GATE (actual marks for single session papers and normalized marks for multi-session papers)
𝑴𝒒: Qualifying marks for general category candidate in GATE paper
𝑴̅𝒕: Mean of marks of top 0.1% or top 10 (whichever is larger) of candidates who appeared for GATE (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
The qualifying marks (𝑴𝒒) in GATE 2018 for general category student in each subject is 25 marks (out of 100) or (𝝁 + 𝝈), whichever is larger. Where 𝝁 is the average (arithmetic mean, with negative marks converted to ‘0’) and 𝝈 is the standard deviation of marks of all the candidates who appeared in the paper.
The qualifying marks (out of 100) are different for different papers and they also vary as per the category of the candidates. The following table represents qualifying marks according to the category of the candidate-
|Category||Qualifying Marks (Out of 100)|
|General Category (Gen)||25 or μ + σ, whichever is higher.|
|Other Backward Classes (OBC)||90% of general category's qualifying mark|
|Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (SC/ST)||2/3 (i.e., 66.67%) of general category's qualifying mark|
Don’t judge people on their GATE AIR, ask them their GATE Score. All India Rank vary according to GATE Paper and category of the candidate. A few special cases from GATE 2016, are given below-
GATE Marks- A total of 65 questions is divided into 2 types of questions in GATE: MCQs and NAT Questions. The total marks are 100. GATE marks are obtained out of 100.
GATE Score- The scores are computed out of 1000 by the process of normalization of marks.
GATE Rank- Also termed as GATE AIR (All India Rank). AIR is calculated on the basis of GATE Scores and it varies according to GATE Paper, category of the candidate.
GATE Cut Off is derived from GATE Scores for admission to M.Tech and PhD programs. Apart from IITs, some participating institutes accept admission on GATE marks. GATE cut off scores are also considered for employment in PSUs, direct recruitment to Group A posts in Central Government.
GATE Cut Off is announced separately by participating institutes for admission to post graduate programs. For qualifying GATE 2018, the cut off will be declared by IIT Guwahati and will be mentioned on the scorecard.
Based on cut offs published by PSUs, candidates are shortlisted for the further selection rounds.
