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 Candidates.
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 ability.
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 year.
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 as:
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 Ability Level
800 to 1000 Outstanding
675 to 800 Excellent
550 to 675 Very good
425 to 550 Good
300 to 425 Above average
100 to 300 Average
Below 100 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 / IISc.
