Before you scroll down and check GATE Cut-Off trends we would advise you to understand some facts related to it, mentioned bellow –

Facts Related to GATE Cut-Offs (Qualifying Marks)
Factors Taken Into Consideration During The Preparation Process Of GATE Cut-Offs:
  1. Number of seats offered for each M.Tech programme.
  2. Total number of applicants for the course.
  3. Previous Year Cutoff Trends.
  4. Level of Difficulty of Questions in present GATE Exam.
GATE Marks:
  1. GATE Marks are used to decide if a candidate has qualified gate.
  2. For example if you got 35 marks and cutoff marks for your category that year is 26 it means that you have qualified.
GATE Rank:
  1. GATE Rank is also known as All India Rank(AIR). A candidate get his/her GATE rank only for his branch. For example a candidate from Chemical engineering will get GATE rank among all Chemical Engineers who attended GATE exam of that particular year.
  2. AIR is given to provide an idea about how well you performed compared to the total number of candidates taking the test in that year. (PSUs generally use AIR cutoffs to call for interview.)
GATE Score:
  1. GATE  Score is calculated out of 1000 while GATE marks are calculated out of 100. GATE score can be calculated using a formula which is based on normalized marks.
  2. GATE Score is provided to compare two candidates who appeared for gate in two different years. Say Candidate-A got 38 marks in GATE 2014 and a GATE Score of 500 while Candidate-B got 40 marks in GATE 2015 and a GATE Score of 480. This simply means paper was tougher in 2014 and though Candidate-A obtained less marks than Candidate-B; Candidate-A have better score than Candidate-B. (As gate score is valid for 3 years, counseling for admission to M.Tech is mostly done based on gate score.)
GATE Percentile:
  1. Percentile is percentage of people behind you in GATE exam.
  2. Percentile is calculated as shown below :
    GATE Percentile = {( Total number of candidates appeared in your subject candidate rank )/( Total number of candidates1 )} X 100

Furthermore;

  • Candidates who appeared for Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) exam have to secure minimum marks decided by GATE organizing Institute. As GATE exam is conducted every year and number of candidates appeared for GATE exam changes every year. Depends upon various factors GATE exam qualifying cut-off marks also varies year by year. There are two main purpose of attending GATE exam.
    1. Getting admission into M. Tech. or P. HD. program and
    2. Getting a job into any PSU which accept GATE score card.
  • But for being eligible for these two, candidate first need to qualify GATE exam by securing minimum marks decided by GATE organizing Institute.
  • In order to get admission into top colleges of India just qualifying GATE exam will not assure your about getting admission into any college in India. Cut-offs for getting admission into various colleges into their various programs of higher education depends upon the number of applicants & also depends upon difficulty level of GATE paper for a particular year. So there is one more cut-off which is Institute dependent, if you want to get admission into a certain college / institute then you have to secure marks equivalent or more than the cut-off marks required for getting admission into that particular college.
