Item 6.1 on Page 69 & Item 6.3 on Page 70 of the GATE 2014 Information Brochure

After the evaluation of the answers, the raw marks obtained by a candidate will be converted to a normalized GATE Score.

From 2013 onwards, the GATE score of a candidate is being computed using the formula given below.

The GATE Score calculated using the following formula:

S = S q + ( S t - S q ) M - Mq M ¯t - Mq

where,

Sis the GATE Score of the candidate,
M is the marks obtained by a candidate in the paper,
Mq is the qualifying mark for general category candidates in the paper,
M ¯t is the average Marks of top 0.1% or top 10 of the candidates (whichever is higher) who appeared in the paper,
St is the Score assigned to M ¯t,
Sq is the Score assigned to Mq

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 that paper.

After the declaration of the results, GATE Score Cards will be issued (mailed to the Correspondence address given in the application) 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 candidates in their respective papers. There is no provision for the issue of additional GATE Score Cards.

The GATE 2014 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 2014, it is hereby made absolutely clear that the Courts and Tribunals in Kolkata and Kolkata alone shall have the exclusive jurisdiction to entertain and settle any such dispute or claim.
