Ans. No. General trends show that the rank you receive at a particular score in the mock test will generally yield a much better rank than the same score will in the actual test. Eg: A score of 80 in the mock test might get you a top 50 rank, while the same score of 80 in the actual test might get you a rank near 1000.

Ques. Are the GATE 2022 Mock Tests tougher than the actual exam?

Ans. No, the official GATE 2022 Mock Test is made to be of the same difficulty as the actual exam. It may seem tougher because of the following few reasons, however.

  • Students do not have as much practice while appearing for the mock test as they do by the time the actual test comes along.
  • Lower scores in the mock test get better ranks than comparatively higher scores in the actual test. However, this is only because a lot of students don't take the mock test too seriously.
  • Students might be unfamiliar with the online test-taking format and lose precious time trying to get used to it. 

Because of all these reasons, it is important to not get too confident after getting a decent rank in the mock test. You must keep practicing till the day of the exam.
