GATE Normalisation Process: How Scores are calculated?
GATE Normalisation Process: How Scores are Calculated - Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) 2021 will be conducted for 27 subjects in multiple sessions and slots from February 5 to 7 and 12 to 14. There are some subjects in GATE like Mechanical, Computer Science, Civil and Electrical which will be conducted in more than one session. Since the difficulty level of the same paper conducted in two slots might vary, GATE 2021 normalisation process is implemented to arrive at an impartial score. The IIT Bombay will use a normalisation formula to arrive at a score at par the difficulty level. The normalised score in GATE 2021 exam will then be used to calculate candidates' score out of 1000. The marks obtained in GATE out of 1000 is the GATE score of a candidate. Many times students have doubts on how GATE normalisation is done, how scores are calculated. Read more to know how GATE normalisation is done and how GATE score is calculated.

GATE Marks Vs Score
The GATE score of a candidate is obtained using a formula out of 1000 while the marks of a candidate is the actual number secured by a candidate in the exam out of 100. The GATE result of qualified candidates indicates both GATE score and marks obtained by candidates. GATE scores are used by institutes to offer admission in PG engineering courses and also by Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) for shortlisting candidates to offer employment.
How GATE Normalised Scores are Calculated
The GATE conducting institute uses formulas for converting the marks of candidates to score. Since some papers are conducted in multiple sessions, to arrive at a normalised score of these multiple session papers, a suitable normalization formula 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 is large and the procedure for 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. Hence, the following formula is used to calculate the GATE normalised score,

How GATE scores are calculated
For all papers for which there is only one session, actual marks obtained by the candidates are used for calculating the GATE Score. For papers in multi-sessions, normalized marks are used for calculating the GATE score. The following formula is used to calculate the GATE score.

GATE Score Card 2021
Candidates who will qualify the exam by securing a minimum score will be issued the GATE score card 2021. Students will be able to download their score card one week after the announcement of the result. GATE score card is the official document confirming the qualification of candidates in exam. GATE score card is used while applying for M.Tech admission or in PSU recruitment through GATE.
Questions related to GATE
previous year Gate question paper ?
Hope you are doing good.
Coming to your question, you have not mentioned which paper/stream’s paper you require.
But Below I have given a careers360 link where you can find the previous years question papers for various streams:
Do solve as many papers as possible and take part in the mock tests, so that you get more confidence and can perform better in your exams
is it possible to do Mtech food technology in anna university after clearing gate biotechnology (bt)
A B.Tech Biotechnology graduate can give GATE exam in M. Tech Food Technology.
Candidates must have a valid GATE Score with a qualifying score for assistantship in appropriate discipline of Engineering/ Technology. They must also have a recent TANCET score, that is conducted by Anna University.
can ece student write gate biotechnology? after wirting any college or job opportunities available?
yes offcourse you are eligible to give GATE in biotechnology. GATE is a type of exam in which any candidate switch their field of study or can grow in their same field of study. It doesn't matter what ug course you have studied. If you want to switch your field you can do it. For doing so you need to study all the subjects of biotechnology according to gate syllabus and while filling up the application you need to opt for BT (for biotechnology).
Syllabus for Biotechnology includes :
Section 1 : Engineering Mathematics
Section 2 : General Biotechnology
Section 3 : Genetics, Cellular and Molecular Biology
Section 4 : Fundamentals of Biological Engineering
Section 5 : Bioprocess Engineering and Process Biotechnology
Section 6 : Plant, Animal and Microbial Biotechnolgy
Section 7 : Recombinant DNA Technologyand Other Tools in Biotechnology
Hope this will help you
all the best!!
after drop 1 year I cant score better percentile in JEE mains...Now I am in state engineering college (electrical engineering) .. now I think to prepare for GATE exam so that i can fulfill my dream of study in Indias top Institute like NIT IIT... should I prepare for GATE from 1st year of btech...
You can start preparing for gate in second year of engineering because that was the time you are to introduce with your basic subject the core subjects. You can start with doing numerical problem and then slowly slowly start with papers and all. For more information you can check the link given below
Hope this help
I am in the first semester of civil engineering. I have to start preparing for the gate from now on so what should I do for this? please guide me... & one more question For example, if I study civil engineering,can I take the gate exam for computer science & technical?
While preparing for GATE first check the syllabus and take things at a pace in which you are comfortable. Starting to prepare early means you will be able to allot much time to your studies and just focus on revision during the final few months so that you are at the top of your condition during the examination.
The question paper will consist of three sections except for AR, CY, GG, EY, XL, PH and MA papers.
- General Aptitude
Engineering Mathematics (for XL papers it is Chemistry)
Subject – Specific section
