GATE Score

The GATE Score of a candidate is in the range 0 to 1000. It reflects the performance of a candidate, irrespective of the GATE paper or year in which he/she has qualified. Candidates with same GATE Score from different GATE papers and/or years can be considered to have the same performance level.

The marks obtained by the candidate is normalized on the basis of the average and standard deviation of marks of all candidates who appeared in the paper mentioned on the scorecard in GATE. Subsequently, this is scaled with respect to the global average and global standard deviation so as to facilitate performance comparison across GATE papers and over a block of years since GATE 2004.

GATE SCORE :Formula For GATE Score is as given

Where

m = marks obtained by the candidate.

a = average of marks of all candidates who appeared in the paper mentioned on this scorecard in GATE for that year

s = standard deviation of marks of all candidates who appeared in the paper mentioned on this scorecard in GATE for that year

= global average of marks of all candidates who appeared across all papers and years (2005-2008)

= global standard deviation of marks of all candidates who appeared across all papers and years (2005-2008)

GATE Percentile Score

The percentile score of a candidate indicates the percentage of candidates who appeared in the same paper and scored less marks than him/her. It is calculated as follows: If N is the total number of candidates appearing in a paper, then the percentile score P is given as,

P = (number of candidates who have scored less marks than the candidate / N) x 100

The Maximum Score can be 1000.

GATE Score Range Ability Level
800 to 1000 Outstanding
675 to 800 Excellent
