GATE is an acronym for "Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering." The main aim of the GATE test is used to assess the performance of engineering students who do apply for the graduate school present in India. The administration of the test is conducted by the Indian Institute of Science (IISC) and six Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT). Accordingly a student's GATE percentile score indicates the percentage of test-takers that scored below them in their particular test category.
How to Calculate GATE 2011 Percentile
• Step 1
At first determine your All India Rank. This ranking will indicate your performance on the test relative to all of the other test-takers in your category. The person who has performed best in their respective category will receive a ranking of 1, the 2nd best receives a ranking of 2, and so on. Your individual rank should be provided with your test results.
• Step 2
Then determine the total number of candidates appearing in your category. This may also be expressed as the total number of candidates appearing in your paper. Either way, this information should also be provided with your test results.
• Step 3
Insert the information gathered from the first two steps into the formula: P= ((T-R) / R) x 100.
P=Percentile, T=Total number of candidates, and R=All India Rank.
For example, If your All India Rank was 700 and the total number of candidates in your category was 3,000, you would insert this information into the formula to get: P= ((3,000-700) / 3,000) x 100
• Step 4
Solve the equation. Using our example from the previous step, this would give us:
P=((3,000-700) / 3,000) x 100 ---> P=(2,300 / 3,000) x 100 ---> P= 0.766 x 100 ---> P=76.6%
