Steps to Calculate GATE 2017 Score

  1. After the evaluation of the answers, the raw marks obtained by a candidate will be converted to a normalized GATE Score. The GATE score will be computed using the formula given below.
  2. Calculation of Normalized Marks for CE, CS, EC, EE and ME papers (multi-session papers). In GATE 2017, examination for some papers may be conducted 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”.
  3. This assumption is justified since the number of candidates appearing in multi-session papers in GATE 2017 is 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.
  4. After evaluation of the answers, normalized marks based on the preset formula will be calculated corresponding to the raw marks obtained by a candidate and the GATE 2017 Score will be calculated based on the normalized marks.
