  • MCQs carrying 1 mark each, 1/3 marks would be deducted as a penalty for marking the wrong answer.
  • For questions carrying 2 marks, 2/3 marks would be deducted for marking an incorrect answer.
  • Count the marks gained in the correct answer and deduct the marks lost in incorrect answers due to negative marking.
  • GATE Marks = Marks obtained for MCQs + Marks obtained for NAT questions.
  • NAT Marks = Total marks (1 mark for each question) + Total marks (2 marks for each question).
  • MCQ Marks: Total marks (1 mark) + Total marks (2 marks).
  • Total marks (1 marks) = 1 x (number of correct answers) – 1/3 x (number of wrong answers)
  • Total marks (2 marks) = 2 x (number of correct answers )– 2/3 x( number of wrong answers)
