GATE 2022 Score
For computing the GATE 2022 score, the actual or raw marks (for single session papers) of the candidates will be considered once the evaluation of the answers is complete. In the case of papers or subjects that were held over multiple sessions, the raw marks of the candidates are going to be converted to normalized marks using a scheme. Based on the qualifying marks, the raw marks or normalized marks will then be used to compute the GATE 2022 score.
