GATE 2017: IIT Roorkee Released Score Card; Check Previous Year Cutoff


New Delhi:  IIT Roorkee, the conducting body for GATE 2017 declared the result for exam yesterday and the score cards are now available on the website for download till May 5, 2017. The GATE 2017 scorecard will be valid for a period of three years. GATE score is important as it is not just used by IITs and IISc for admission to Post-postgraduate and research programs but also considered by many PSUs and government organizations for various job recruitments. In this article we will discuss the GATE cut off score and what was the cut off marks last year. 

GATE Cutoff 

A committee constituted by IIT Council decides GATE Cutoff. GATe Cutoff has two components - GATE Cutoff Score and GATE Cutoff Rank. The cutoff score is the minimum score a candidate must have scored for admission to a particular course or institute. The GATE Cutoff rank is the rank corresponding to the GATE cutoff score. 

Factors affecting GATE Cutoff

The following factors are considered while deciding the GATE Cutoff:
  • Total number of candidates who registered for the exam
  • Total number of candidates who actually appeared for the exam
  • Total number of institutes accepting GATE Score
  • Total number of vacancies for each course
  • Intake capacity of each participating institute
  • Relative performance of candidates
  • Cutoff trends of previous years
