Calculate GATE score using answer key
The main formula to calculate the GATE score using the answer key is total marks = total marks secured for 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 are of both 1 marks and 2 marks. For each incorrect answer to a one-marker question, one-third marks will be deducted and for each incorrect answer to a two-marker question two-third marks will be deducted.
The NAT questions are of both one mark and two marks so calculate the score accordingly.
