For multi-session papers or subjects like mechanical engineering, the candidates' raw marks in different sessions are converted to normalized marks based on already qualifying marks.

Calculation and Preparation of Normalized GATE ME Scorecard 2023

The mechanical engineering paper is mostly conducted in multi-session exams. Hence, for this paper, a suitable normalization method is applied to consider and acknowledge any variation in the mechanical engineering question papers' difficulty levels throughout different sessions. The fundamental assumption behind the normalization process in the GATE Mechanical Scorecard is that "in mechanical engineering GATE paper, the distribution of abilities and performance of appearing candidates is considered to be the same across all the sessions". Based on the above assumption, considering various normalization methods, the following formula is used for calculating the normalized marks for the mechanical engineering paper.
