How is the raw marks obtained in GATE calculated?

The maximum marks in GATE vary depending on the paper. Generally, the maximum marks range from 100 to 1000, with each question carrying a different weightage.
What is the score out of 1000 in GATE?
The score out of 1000 in GATE is a normalization factor used to calculate the GATE score. It ensures that the scores of different papers are comparable and helps in ranking the candidates.
How does the GATE score formula work?
The GATE score formula takes into account the raw marks obtained by a candidate and scales them based on the maximum marks and score out of 1000.

Can you provide an example of how the GATE score formula is applied?
Sure! Let's say a candidate obtains 70 out of 100 marks in GATE and the maximum marks for the paper are 200. If the score out of 1000 for that paper is 800, the GATE score would be: GATE Score = (70 / 200) x 800 = 280
Is the GATE score formula the same for all papers?
No, the GATE score formula may vary slightly for different papers. The actual formula and parameters used for calculation are determined by the GATE conducting authority.
Are the GATE scores normalized?
Yes, GATE scores are normalized to account for variations in difficulty level across different papers and sessions. The normalization process ensures fair comparison and ranking among candidates.
Can the GATE score be negative?
No, the GATE score cannot be negative. Even if a candidate receives negative marks due to negative marking for incorrect answers, the final GATE score is adjusted to zero.
Where can I find the GATE scorecard with my calculated GATE score?
