The Gradual Aptitude Test in Engineering, which is also known as the GATE Examinations, is a nation-wide engineering entrance examination. The GATE Engineering examinations are conducted and convened annually throughout India.
These engineering entrance examinations are held usually in the month of February every year and even the Upcoming GATE 2015 Engineering Entrance Examination is Scheduled to be held in the month of February 2015.
GATE Exams are conducted both by the Indian Institute of Science and the Indian Institute of Technology (all 7 of them). The GATE Results, which are declared are in the form of a GATE Score Card, this GATE Score Card is numbered on the basis of the AIR, which is (All India Rank)
The GATE Results are declared after a month of conclusion of the GATE entrance examinations. These GATE results disclose the total number of marks that is scored by the candidate. As already mentioned above the GATE Examination Scores are always in the form of AIR (All India Rank)
The GATE Scores are valid for a period of 3 years from the date of declaration of the Results, which means a student can use the GATE Scores for seeking admissions to various Engineering Universities and Colleges for 3 years from the date of declaration of the GATE Results.
So the Candidate need not appear every year of the GATE Engineering Entrance Examinations, so as to seek admissions in every academic year, just in case he/she could not procure and admission for any respective academic year.
New Procedure for Normalized GATE Scores:
After a lot of Deliberation and Discussion on the new method and procedure for the GATE Scores, the Committee has considered and arrived at a new formula for computing and calculating the Normalized Marks and Scores in the CS, EC, CE, EE and ME GATE papers. The following is the formula for the GATE Scores given below:
Normalized mark (︿Mij) of jth candidate in ith session, is given by
︿Mij = Mgt – Mgq/Mti – Miq ( Mij – Miq ) + Mgq
Mij is the actual marks secured by the jth candidate in ith session,
Mgt is the average marks of the top 0.1% candidates in all sessions of that subject,
Mgq is the sum of the mean and the standard deviation of marks of all the candidates in all sessions of that subject,
Miq is the sum of mean and standard deviation of marks of all candidates in the ith of that subject.
