GATE 2006 result will be announced on 15.3.2006 at 1000 hrs.
at GATE offices of IITs / IISc. It will be also available
on this website.
GATE 2006 score is valid upto March 31, 2008.
Scorecard will be sent only to the qualified candidates.
No information will be sent to candidates who are not qualified.
The GATE scorecard is a valuable document. Care should be
taken to preserve it. Additional Score Cards, (upto a maximum
of two) will be issued on payment basis only once.
The Scorecard cannot be treated as a proof of date of birth,
category and disability status.
The Scorecard will indicate GATE Score and Rank of the Qualified
The GATE SCORE of a candidate is a statistical performance
index in the range 0 to 1000. It reflects the ability of a
candidate, irrespective of the paper or year in which he/she
has qualified. Candidates with same GATE SCORE from different
disciplines and/or years can be considered to be of equal
The performance index (PI) of a candidate for his/her paper
in a given year is defined as:
m = marks obtained by the candidate.
a = average of marks of all candidates who appeared in the
paper mentioned on this scorecard, in the current year.
s = standard deviation of marks of all candidates who appeared
in the paper mentioned on this scorecard, in the current
To facilitate performance comparison across GATE papers
and over a block of years since GATE 2003, this PI is scaled
with respect to the global average and global standard deviation.
This concept is represented as:
mg = rescaled marks defined with reference to global
average and standard deviation.
ag = global average of marks of all candidates
who appeared across all papers and years (2003-2006).
sg = global standard deviation of marks of all
candidates who appeared across all papers and years (2003-2006).
Therefore the candidate’s rescaled marks can now be written
Considering 150 as the maximum marks in GATE paper, the
rescaled marks, mg, is finally represented as
the GATE Score on a 0 to 1000 scale and is given by:
A typical qualitative interpretation of the GATE SCORE,
for example, can be as follows:
|GATE Score Range
|800 to 1000
|675 to 800
|550 to 675
|| Very good
|425 to 550
|300 to 425
|| Above average
|100 to 300
|| Below average
- The evaluation of the ORS is carried out by a computerized
process using scanning machines, with utmost care. Requests
for revaluation of the answer script and re-totaling of marks
will not be entertained.
- The GATE result and particulars of the qualified candidates
will be made available to interested organizations (educational
institutions, R and D laboratories, industries etc.) in India
and abroad based on written request by the organization and
on payment. Details can be obtained from GATE Chairmen of IITs
