Many candidates have asked me that how much marks one should score out of 100 to get interview call from PSUs. Before explaining more about this topic. I would like to explain you on what factors your interview call in PSUs depends. There are some key factors on which your interview call in PSUs depends which are as follows :
(1) Your branch of engineering (i.e., EE, EC, ME, CE).
(2) Your category (i.e., UR, OBC, SC, ST).
(3) Number of seats notified by a certain PSU for a particular branch of engineering in a certain year (i.e., 2018).
(4) Number of total seats notified by all PSUs for a particular branch of engineering in a certain year (i.e., 2018).
(5) Difficulty level of GATE paper in a certain year of your branch of engineering (i.e., 2018).

So, By analysing above points you will find that it is really a difficult task to tell you about how much marks one should score in GATE 2018 to get a call from PSUs ? Let me explain you little more clearly. When you go through the marks obtained by GATE toppers in previous years you will find that toppers marks very either by some points or marks because it depends upon some factors like difficulty level of GATE paper, normalization of marks etc. Marks of some popular branch toppers of various years is given below.
Electrical Engineering (EE)
Rank ↓ Year → 2017 2016 2015 1 81.25 88.38 75.96
Mechanical Engineering (ME)
Rank ↓ Year → 2017 2016 2015 1 94.85 94.66 98.33
Electronics & Communication Engineering (E&C)
Rank ↓ Year → 2017 2016 2015 1 83.83 86.27 85.02
Computer Science & Information technology (CS&IT)
Rank ↓ Year → 2017 2016 2015 1 86.38 85.95 85.85
Must Check : GATE Rank vs Marks vs Score Analysis
So from the above analysis we find that marks of topper vary year by year similarly marks required for getting selection in PSUs also varies year by year because it also depends upon various factors, some of them is written above.
Here using the below tables you can get an idea about upto which GATE rank you can get a call from PSUs and what GATE score would be defined as good or bad for your performance in GATE 2018 exam.
GATE Rank Chance Level Upto 10 Call from all PSUs Upto 100 Call from almost all PSUs Upto 500 Miss some PSUs Upto 1000 Call from few PSUs Above 1000 Call from very few PSUs GATE Score Ability Level 800 to 1000 Outstanding 675 to 800 Excellent 550 to 675 Very good 425 to 550 Good 300 to 425 Above average 100 to 300 Average Below 100 Below average
However we have provided many PSUs & Govt. Organization cut-off marks for various posts notified in previous years. You may check such PSUs & Govt. Organization cut-off marks using the link given below.

Conclusions provided above are for General Categories. OBC candidates can multiply each of the ranks by 2 and SC/ST candidates can multiply each of the ranks by 5 to get a realistic view. PSUs interview shortlist criterion is 1:6 to 1:10 depending on the PSU and number of vacancy notified for a particular year. So if there are 50 vacancies total for a particular year & for a particular branch of engineering then they will atleast call 300 candidates for GD & PI.
#Note : These are general statistics, most appropriate for the popular departments like Electronics, Computer Science, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering in their most popular and common courses. For more details you may check concern companies website.
