How is the GATE normalized score calculated?

GATE examination for CE, CS, EC, EE and ME papers is usually held in multiple sessions. Hence, to take into account the different scores and difficulty levels, normalized score is calculated.

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”.
Based on the above, and considering various normalization methods, the committee arrived at the following formula for calculating the normalized marks, for CE, CS, EC, EE and ME papers.

Normalized Mark of jth candidate in ith session Mˆij is given by:
Mij     is the actual marks obtained by the jth candidate in ith

M¯tg   is the average marks of the top 0.1% of the candidates considering all sessions

Mqg    is the sum of mean and standard deviation marks of the candidates in the paper considering all sessions

M¯ti is the average marks of the top 0.1% of the candidates in the ith session

Miq      is the sum of the mean marks and standard deviation of the ith session.

M = marks obtained by the candidate (actual marks for single session papers and normalized marks for multi-session papers)
Mq = is the qualifying marks for general category candidate in the paper

M¯t = is the mean of marks of top 0.1% or top 10 (whichever is larger)of the candidates who appeared in the paper (in case of multi-session papers including all sessions)

Sq = 350, is the score assigned to Mq
St = 900, is the score assigned to M¯t
