Difference between GATE Marks and GATE Score

Calculation of GATE Score (CE/CS/EC/EE/ME)

The number of candidates for CE, CS, EC, EE and ME is important, therefore, the GATE 2021 Examination will be done in several sessions.

Therefore, the committee decided to calculate the standardized marks separately for the GATE 2021 Examination with the paper codes CE, CS, EC, EE and ME. After considering several factors and standardization formulas, the following formula is designed to calculate standardized marks:

Is there a Qualifying Cutoff marks in GATE and what is it?

Normalized Mark of the jth candidate in ith session M^ it is as follows:



  • Mij is the actual marks obtained by the jth candidate in ith session
  • Mˉgt is the average marks of the top 0.1% of the candidates considering all sessions
  • Mg is the sum of mean and standard deviation marks of the candidates in the paper considering all session
  • Mˉti is the average marks of the top 0.1% of the candidates in the ith session
  • Miq is the sum of the mean marks and standard deviation of the ith session

With the help of the previous formula, the candidate’s gross marks will become standardized brands. Now, the candidate’s GATE score will be calculated based on the standard scores.

Calculation of GATE Score (all Papers)

Candidates with the paper code other than CE, CS, EC, EE and ME must provide their actual scores for the GATE score calculation. The GATE 2021 score for all items will be evaluated by the following formula:

GATE Score = Sq+(St−Sq)(M−Mq)(Mˉt−Mq)


  • M= marks obtained by the candidate (actual marks for single session papers and normalized marks for multi-session papers).
  • Mq = is the qualifying marks for general category candidate in the paper.
  • Mˉt = is the mean of marks of top 0.1% or top 10 (whichever is larger) of the candidates who appeared in the paper (in case of multi-session papers including all sessions).
  • Sq= 350, is the score assigned to Mq.
  • St= 900, is the score assigned to Mˉt.

In the formula of GATE 2021 Score, Mq is generally 25 marks (out of 100) or μ+σ, whichever is larger. Here μ is the mean and σ is the standard deviation of the scores of all candidates who will appear on the GATE 2021 exam.
