# How to Calculate GATE 2017 Score For All Papers & Normalized Marks

By | March 3, 2017

Calculation of GATE 2017 Score and Normalized Marks for CE, CS, EC, EE and ME papers: In 2017, examination for CE, CS, EC, EE and ME papers is being held in multi-sessions. Hence, for these papers, a suitable normalization is applied to take into account any variation in the difficulty levels of the question papers across different sessions. The normalization is done based on the fundamental assumption that “in all multi-session GATE papers, the distribution of abilities of candidates is the same across all the sessions”. This assumption is justified since the number of candidates appearing in multi-session papers in GATE 2017 is large and the procedure of allocation of session to candidates is random. Further it is also ensured that for the same multi-session paper, the number of candidates allotted in each session is of the same order of magnitude.

## How to Calculate GATE 2017 Score For All Papers & Normalized Marks

Calculation of GATE 2017 Score: After the evaluation of the answers, the raw marks obtained by a candidate will be converted to a normalized GATE Score. The GATE score will be computed using the formula given below.

### Calculation of Normalized Marks for CE, CS, EC, EE and ME papers (multi-session papers)

In GATE 2017, examination for some papers may be conducted in multi-sessions. Hence, for these papers, a suitable normalization is applied to take into account any variation in the difficulty levels of the question papers across different sessions. The normalization is done based on the fundamental assumption that “in all multi-session GATE papers, the distribution of abilities of candidates is the same across all the sessions”. This assumption is justified since the number of candidates appearing in multi-session papers in GATE 2017 is large and the procedure of allocation of session to candidates is random. Further it is also ensured that for the same multi-session paper, the number of candidates allotted in each session is of the same order of magnitude.

Based on the above, and considering various normalization methods, the committee arrived at the following formula for calculating the normalized marks for the multi-session papers.

After evaluation of the answers, normalized marks based on the above formula will be calculated corresponding to the raw marks obtained by a candidate and the GATE 2017 Score will be calculated based on the normalized marks. For all papers for which there is only one session, actual marks obtained will be used for calculating the GATE 2017 Score.

### Calculation of GATE Score for all papers

GATE 2017 score will be calculated using the formula;

In the GATE 2017 score formula, Mq is usually 25 marks (out of 100) or μ+σ, whichever is larger. Here μ is the mean and σ is the standard deviation of marks of all the candidates who appeared in the paper.

After the declaration of the results, GATE Score Cards will be downloadable to (a) All SC/ST/PwD candidates whose marks are greater than or equal to the qualifying mark of SC/ST/PwD candidates in their respective papers, and (b) All other candidates whose marks are greater than or equal to the qualifying mark of OBC (NCL) candidates in their respective papers. There is no provision for the issue of additional GATE Score Cards.

The GATE 2017 Committee has the authority to decide the qualifying mark/score for each GATE paper. In case any claim or dispute arises in respect of GATE 2017, it is hereby made absolutely clear that the Courts and Tribunals in Bangalore and Bangalore alone shall have the exclusive jurisdiction to entertain and settle any such dispute or claim.
