GATE Score

After the evaluation of the answers, the raw marks obtained by a candidate will be converted to a normalised GATE Score.  For the year 2013 two scores will be issued to the candidates, computed by two different formulae, each having a validity period of one year.

  1. The Score computed with the old formula, valid from 15 March 2013 till 14 March 2014, should be used to compare with the Scores obtained in GATE 2012, and
  2. The Score computed with the new formula, valid from 15 March 2014 till 14 March 2015 must be used to compare with Scores of GATE 2014.

The reason for issuing two scores in a year the GATE Score formula transition is made, is because of the two year validity of GATE Scores and to enable a comparison across various years. Since the two formulae are very different, the scores for a candidate could be very different, and may not display any obvious relationship to the All India Rank (AIR).  There may also be no obvious relationship visible between the AIRs and the Scores computed using the old formula across years.

GATE 2013 Results

GATE 2013 results will be announced on March 15, 2013 at 10:00 hrs and will be available on the GATE Online Applicant Website. GATE 2013 score is valid for TWO YEARS from the date of announcement of the results. GATE 2013 results may be made available on payment basis to interested organizations (educational institutions, R & D laboratories, industries, etc.) in India and abroad based on a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between IIT Bombay and the requesting organization. Details in this regard can be obtained from the Chairman, GATE, IIT Bombay.

GATE Score Card

A Scorecard, printed on official stationery, will be issued (mailed to the correspondence address given in the application) to all the candidates for a paper whose marks are equal to or above the qualifying marks of OBC-NCL candidates in that paper, and to all qualified SC/ST/PD category candidates.  (The GATE 2013 Brochure and this website had earlier stated that scorecards will be sent to all candidates above the SC/ST/PD cut off.  However, the GATE 2013 Committee has revised this policy, as stated above, because there is no value of a Scorecard for a candidate who does not qualify. All candidates can, however, view their marks and All India Rank,  on the official website, and keep a printed record of  it, if required). For the qualified candidates, there is no provision for issue of an additional copy GATE scorecards. The GATE 2013 Committee with the NCB’s approval has the authority to decide the qualifying score for each GATE paper. In case any claim or dispute arises in respect of GATE 2013, it is hereby made absolutely clear that the Courts and Tribunals in Mumbai and Mumbai alone shall have the exclusive jurisdiction to entertain and settle any such dispute or claim.

Undelivered Score Card

Candidates whose GATE 2013 scorecards are returned undelivered to IIT Bombay (check the Speed Post Tracking link) may send an application to the “The Chairperson, GATE 2013, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Powai, Mumbai 400076″ requesting to resend the scorecard, along with a self addressed A5 size envelope affixing postal stamp worth ₹40.00 on it .  They must provide a copy of a standard Photo Identification card, and mention the registration number in the request letter.

Duplicate score cards are normally not issued to candidates.  However, in genuine cases of a loss, a duplicate GATE 2013 scorecard may be issued to candidates on request to the “Chairperson, GATE 2013, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Powai, Mumbai 400076″, only if the candidate:

  1. looses the scorecard and sends as a proof the copy of FIR lodged in the police station of the area where the student lost the scorecard, or
  2. accidentally damages the scorecard beyond recognition and the candidate produces an affidavit made in a court of law declaring that they (candidate) have accidentally damaged the original scorecard beyond recognition (cause should be mentioned), or
  3. accidentally damages the scorecard which is still recognizable, but cannot be used as a certificate any more, and sends the damaged scorecard.
