GATE Rank V/s Marks

GATE 2022 Marks vs Rank

GATE 2022 Marks vs Rank Analysis helps candidates know their expected ranks based on the scores in respective papers. The table below covers the Marks vs Rank analysis for top branches of GATE 2022 including Mechanical Engineering (ME), Computer Science Engineerig (CS), Civil Engineering (CE), Electronics and Communication Engineering (EC) and Electrical Engineering (EE).

Rank Marks in GATE 2022
ME CS CE EC EE
1-10 92+ 80+ 90+ 73+ 91+
10-50 87-92 75-80 85-90 67-73 87-91
50-100 85-87 72-75 78-85 63-67 84-87
100-200 82-85 68-72 74-78 60-63 81-84
200-500 79-82 62-68 70-74 56-60 77-81
500-1000 75-79 56-62 64-70 50-56 72-77
1000-2000 71-75 50-56 57-64 45-50 66-72
2000-5000 63-71 40-50 50-57 38-45 57-66
5000-10000 51-63 32-40 40-50 28-38 46-57

Aspirants must not get confused between GATE rank and score. Suppose a student who gets marks around 67 and GATE score around 810 is likely to get rank near 170 in Electronics and Communication Engineering. Similarly, a candidate expecting the rank under 1000 has good chances of getting into a preferred branch in NITs. Although, a student must prepare for an interview and GD in order to proceed in the admission process. 

GATE Rank Vs Institute

While cut off marks may vary each year, the rank required for selection in a particular college and course is almost the same because seats for a particular course do not change on a regular basis. Thus, it is advisable to score an AIR rank around 100 in GATE 2022 in order to get admission into IISc and Top IITs.

Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore
Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay

(1) For Direct Admission: AIR < 100
(2) For some courses: ≤ AIR ≤ 600

Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur
Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi 
Indian Institute of Technology, Madras

(1) For Direct Admission: AIR < 100
(2) For some courses: ≤ AIR ≤ 300
