The GATE scorecard will consist of actual marks obtained by the candidate, the GATE Score, Percentile Score and All India Rank (AIR). Scorecard will be sent only to the qualified candidates. No information will be sent to candidates who are not qualified.
The GATE score, awarded in the range of 0 to 1000 reflects the candidate’s academic ability and will be based on his/her performance in GATE and the performances of all candidates who appeared in GATE in the last four years. Candidates with the same GATE score from different GATE papers and/or years can be considered to have the same performance level.

s: standard deviation of marks of all candidates who appeared in the paper mentioned on this scorecard in GATE
ag: average (global) of marks of all candidates who appeared across all papers and years
sg: standard deviation (global) of marks of all candidates who appeared across all papers and years
The maximum score can be 100.
|GATE Percentile ScoreThe percentile score of a candidate indicates the percentage of candidates who appeared in the same paper and scored less marks than him/her. It is calculated as follows: If N is the total number of candidates appearing in a paper, then the percentile score P is given as,
P = (number of candidates who have scored less marks than the candidate / N) x 100
A typical qualitative interpretation of the GATE SCORE, for example, can be as follows:
