Calculate GATE score using an answer key

The main formula to calculate the GATE score using the answer key is total marks = total marks secured for a correct response – negative marks for wrong response.

Only the Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) will have the negative marking and there will be no negative marking in the Numerical Answer Type (NAT) questions.

The MCQ is of both 1 mark and 2 marks. For each incorrect answer to a one-marker question, one-third of marks will be deducted and for each incorrect answer to a two-marker question, two-thirds of marks will be deducted.

The NAT questions are of both one mark and two marks so calculate the score accordingly.

The IIT Bombay will now open the GATE objection window to allow the MTech candidates to raise any objections on the response sheets and the answer key. The authorities will re-evaluate the responses on the basis of the objections and then release the final GATE answer key on March 18. Each objection will cost Rs 500.

In case a challenge is accepted, the candidate will get a full refund of the objection fee after the publication of the final answer key.

IIT Bombay said that “the question number and answer key/range mentioned in the challenge portal of GOAPS must be of the published ones and not that of the response sheet of the candidate”.
