1. GATE Marks : Now a days there are two kind of questions asked in GATE exam.

(1) Multiple Choice Questions

[1] For 1 Marks Multiple Choice Questions, 1/3 marks will be deducted for a wrong answer.
[2] 2 Marks Multiple Choice Questions, 2/3 marks will be deducted for a wrong answer.

(2) Numerical Answer Type Questions

There is NO negative marking for numerical answer type questions.

Making scheme in GATE exam for multiple choice questions is same as any other competitive exam where 1 marks will be awarded for the correct answer while 1/3rd or 2/3rd marks will be deducted for incorrect answer from the total marks. Total marks assigned in GATE exam is 100 for nearly 65 questions.

2. GATE Rank : GATE rank is also known as All India Rank(AIR). A candidate get his/her GATE rank only for his branch. For example a candidate from Electrical engineering will get GATE rank among all Electrical engineers who attended GATE exam of that particular year.

3. GATE Score : GATE  score is calculated out of 1000 while GATE marks are calculated out of 100. GATE score can be calculated using a formula which is based on normalized marks.

Must check :  GATE Normalized Marks Formula

Must check : GATE Score Formula

Candidate who wish to get direct admission into IISC/ IITs must try to score nearly 1000.

4. GATE Percentile : Percentile is percentage of people behind you in GATE exam.

Percentile is calculated as shown below :

{(Total number of candidates appeared in your subject- candidate rank)/(Total number of candidates-1)} x 100

Suppose 5,00,000 candidates appeared in GATE exam.

Example 1 
Your rank is 1
Percentile = ((5,00,000-1)/(5,00,000-1)) x 100 = 100

Example 2 
Your rank is 100
Percentile = ((5,00,000-100)/(5,00,000-1)) x 100 = 99.95

Example 3
Your rank is 5,00,000
Percentile = ((5,00,000-5,00,000)/(5,00,000-1)) x 100 = 0

Candidate who wish to get direct admission into IISC/ IITs must try to score nearly 100 percentile.
