Calculation of the GATE Score

The actual marks obtained by the candidate are normalized with the formulas given below. The formula is different in case of subjects that are conducted in one session and multiple sessions.

For the CE, CS, EC, EE and ME papers, which are conducted over multiple sessions, the formula is:


For all the rest of the papers which are conducted over a single session, the respective formula is:

Normalisation Guidelines for GATE 2019

  • The difference in formula is brought due to the fact that the CE, CS, EE, ME and EC papers are the most popular among the GATE subjects and hence a large number of candidates apply for it every year, who cannot be fitted into a single session.
  • To take into consideration the difficulty levels of the question in the multiple sessions of these subjects, the formula is changed from that of the single session papers.
  • However, it is also assumed while doing the normalization that the number of candidates in each session is more or less same in magnitude and they all share the same range of ability and aptitude needed for GATE examination. This assumption reflects in the fact that the candidate is randomly allotted sessions not following any particular pattern.

GATE 2019 Counseling Process

The main points the candidates should keep in mind about the GATE 2019 counseling process are:

  1. There will be no common counseling on a generic level for all the candidates. They must check the interview and admission notices of the respective institutes they want to go to.
  2. Every IIT institute will have their counseling sessions scheduled separately.
  3. There will be a Centralised Counselling for M.Tech./M.Arch./M.Plan. Admissions (CCMT) 2017 through which NIT will conduct their admission process as well.
  4. The interviews for the government establishments and PSUs who consider GATE scores will be announced with their dates, procedure, and cut-offs separately.

GATE score determines the admission of the candidates into postgraduate courses in streams like M.E. and M. Tech. in institutes like IIT, NIIT, CFIT and other top engineering schools as well as to Ph.D. courses. A number of government establishments and PSUs also hire their technical recruits based on their GATE scores. Every year, the Indian Institute of Science and seven IITs jointly monitor the whole procedure of the test, starting from the application till the admission.

The examination is a computer-based test via the online module and is divided into 8 sessions. Each of the 23 papers is of 100 marks and consists of 65 questions 85% on the subject itself and the remaining 15% on the general aptitude of the appearing candidate. The candidates are given 3 hours to attempt all the multiple choice and numerical type questions.
