# GATE 2011 – M- Tech Admission – Percentile calculation of GATE 2011

GATE 2011 result to published in march, here is the guide to calculate the percentile marks. Percentile is what required for the admission of M-Tech

## GATE 2011 - M- Tech Admission - Percentile calculation of GATE Exam

Valid GATE Scores are used for M-Tech admission, but few know how to calculate the percentile score in the GATE exam. Percentage and Percentile are different, percentile is a relative term. If you score 50 out of hundred then your percentage marks is 50%, but what is you r percentile. Percentile is more dependents on something else. More than the marks it depends on what Rank you have scored

We will have a look at how the percentile is calculated in the GATE Exam
Say for example a total of hundreds candidates appeared for GATE Exam in your respective discipline

Then

N-number of Candidates appeared for GATE (in your discipline)
R- Your Rank in the GATE Exam, (depending on marks you scored you will have a rank)
P-Percentile

P=( (N-R)/N ) x 100

Difference between N and R (N-R) indicates the number of candidates have lees Marks than you in the GATE Exam

Example

In GATE Exam 2011, a total of 50000 appeared in Electrical and Electronics, and a guy named X got All India Rank (AIR) 256.( That is there are 50000-256 candidates scored lees than him)

Here

N=50000

R=256

P=?

P=( (N-R)/N ) x 100

P=( (50000-256)/50000) x 100

=( 49744/50000) x 100

=(0.99488) x 100

=99.488

So X has a percentile of 99.488

You might know that the GATE Score is valid for two years, to unify these scores of two year the method of Percentile is used. There will be difference in the GATE Exam of different years, if the avg marks scored in year 2010 is high compared toGATE exam 2011. The guy wrote exam in 2011 will have less marks compared to the candidate appeared in 2010. The method of Percentile comes handy in this situation

Percentile depends not on the marks you have scored but the rank you have secured in the respective GATE exams.
If X appeared GATE 2010 and Y in 2011

2010 GATE Exams

Total Candidate appeared N-50000

Marks Scored By X- 64

All India Rank Secured R-656

Percentile P is equal to 98.688

2011 GATE Exams

Total Candidate appeared N -50500

Marks Scored By Y- 50

All India Rank Secured R -600

Percentile P is equal to 98.81

Looking at the percentile you can see that there is no much role for marks, But the AIR is what matters.
Y will have a definite Edge over X who has scored more than Y Job oriented Digital Marketing Courses in Kerala.
