GATE ME Selection Process

GATE Mechanical Engineering Selection process consists of a written exam which is taken by lakhs of candidates. It is an all-India-level exam taken from candidates from across the country. The written exam is organised by IIT Kharagpur which is also the conducting body of the GATE exam. The score obtained in the GATE ME exam should be equal to or greater than the GATE cutoff score. Those who manage to meet the GATE Cutoff will be selected for the opportunities related to GATE. 

Candidates should apply to the individual institutes/universities as per the admission notification. It should be noted that IIT will not conduct common counseling as admissions to the NITs are done through the CCMT (Centralised Counselling for M.Tech/M.Plan). Candidates qualifying for the GATE exam have to apply online for CCMT. In the test/interview-based selection procedure, a minimum of 70% weightage will be given to the performance in GATE and the remaining will be given to the candidate’s performance in test/interview and/or academic record. It should be noted that the admitting institutes could prescribe minimum passing marks in the test/interview.

The normalisation of marks in the GATE ME Exam

  • It has been believed that "The distribution of abilities of candidates is the same across all the sessions in all multi-session GATE papers". It is justified since the number of candidates that appear in multi-session papers in GATE is large and the procedure of allocation of session to candidates is random. 
  • Further, in the same multi-session paper, the number of candidates allotted in each session is of the same order of magnitude. 
  • Based on the above, and considering various normalization methods, the committee arrived at the following formula for calculating the normalized marks for the multi-session papers.
