## GATE 2018 Score formula for multiple session papers

GATE 2018 was held in two sessions for ME, and CE papers. For them, score is normalized. This is done to account for any difference in difficulty level of questions in different sessions.

The fundamental concept on which normalization is based is “in all multi-session GATE papers, the distribution of abilities of candidates is the same across all the sessions”.

The above assumption stands true for GATE Result 2018 as number of candidates in each session is large enough (more than 35,000) and sessions are allotted randomly. Also the number of candidates in each session is equally large.

Normalized mark (^{︿}M_{ij}) of j^{th} candidate in i^{th} session, is given by

where,

- M
_{ij}is the actual marks obtained by the j^{th}candidate in the i^{th}session. - M
^{g}_{t}is the average marks of the top 0.1 % candidates in all sessions. - M
^{g}_{q}is the sum of mean and standard deviation of marks of all candidates in all sessions. - M
_{ti}is the average of marks of top 0.1 % candidates in the i^{th}session. - M
_{iq}is the sum of mean and standard deviation of marks of all candidates in the i^{th}session.

## GATE 2018 Score formula for all papers

The score of a candidate for GATE Result 2018 is calculated on the basis of below-given formula.

where,

- S = Score.
- M = Marks obtained by a candidate (“normalized marks” in case of multiple-session subjects CE, ME).
- M
_{q}= Qualifying marks for general category candidates in that subject (usually 25 or μ + σ, whichever is higher), - μ = Average (i.e. arithmetic mean) of marks of all candidates in that subject.
- σ = Standard deviation of marks of all candidates in that subject.
- M
_{t}= Average marks of top 0.1 % candidates or top 10 (whichever is larger) of the candidates who appeared in the paper (in case of multi-session papers including all sessions) - S
_{t}= 900 = Score assigned to M_{t}, - S
_{q}= 350 = Score assigned to M_{q}.

## GATE 2018 Qualifying Marks

The qualifying marks will be disclosed for each paper along with the GATE Result 2018. For GATE 2018 score formula, the qualifying marks are assigned on a pre-defined basis.

Qualifying score for general category | 25 or μ + σ which ever is greater |

μ | Mean of marks of all candidates who appeared in the paper |

σ | Standard deviation of all candidates who appeared in the paper |

According to Wikipedia:

- Qualifying marks for OBC candidates will be 90% of general category’s qualifying mark.
- Qualifying marks for SC, ST candidates will be 2/3
^{rd}or 66.67% of general category’s qualifying mark.

## GATE Cutoff 2018

Candidates need a minimum score to qualify the exam. This is known as the cutoff or qualifying marks. The formula for qualifying score is given above. Cutoff of GATE in 2018 will be announced on 17^{th} March 2018. Last year cutoffs were as follows.

Branch | General | OBC | SC/ST/PH |

EC | 25.00 | 22.50 | 16.60 |

CE | 28.70 | 25.8 | 19.10 |

EE | 25.20 | 25.20 | 16.70 |

ME | 32.87 | 29 | 21 |

CS | 25 | 22.50 | 16.60 |

IN | 34.60 | 31.10 | 23.00 |

CH | 44.30 | 39.80 | 29.50 |

BT | 38.90 | 35.00 | 25.90 |
