How does GATE 2014 score get calculated?

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur had conducted the computer based GATE 2014 examination from February 01 to March 02, 2014.

GATE 2014 is the qualifying entrance exam conducted for admissions to postgraduate programmes in IISc and IITs.

According to the official website, GATE 2014 entrance examination results will be announced on March 28, 2014.

GATE 2014 score will be calculated by using the formula developed by the IIT officials.

Candidates who have applied for the GATE 2014 examination, have to visit the official website to see the formula.

In 2014, 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 normalisation 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 2014 is large and the procedure of allocation of session to candidates is random.

Further, it has also ensured that for the same multi-session paper, the number of candidates allotted in each session is of the same order of magnitude.

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.
