The raw score would be then be normalized to arrive at the GATE score
Normalization will be done to account for differences in difficulty level a paper that is held across multiple sessions.
For example, papers like ME, EC, CS, EE and CE are held in multiple sessions; consequently difficulty level of the same paper may vary across the sessions.
The normalization process ensures that candidates across these different sessions get a level playing field. The normalization process takes into account the difficulty level of each paper and rates the candidate accordingly.
Normalization Guidelines for Papers held in Multiple Sessions – ME, EC, CS, EE and CE papers:
GATE authorities use the formula given below to account for the variations in difficulty level of a paper across various sessions.
During the normalization process, it is assumed that the ability of a candidate will be the same across all the sessions.
This assumption is followed because the number of candidates appearing in GATE is large and the allocation of sessions to candidates is done randomly.
To ensure fairness, it is also ensured that each session has the same number of candidates
