Postby iyerneeraj » Thu Apr 02, 2009 3:17 pm

hi..
I have a strange dilemma...
I am a CS student and last yr in Gate Cs i got 98 percentile .. AIR 350. Gate score 498
This year i got 97.7 percentile... Air 990. Gate score 552 !!!!!!!!!

If i consider rank my prev performance was better.. but this yr score is better but rank is pretty bad..

Suppose i wish to apply for admission which score should i use for better outputs ???

GATE brochure clearly mentions that candidates scoring same marks in different years will be considered equivalent. So I suppose you should use the one with higher score (out of 1000).

In some Institutes like IISc, they have space for filling up both the Year's details too.

I appeared for GATE CS in 2008 and 2009. Still come to the forums in lookout for good CS questions.

I think u have already cleared the procedures. No way of confusion, always higher score will be counted.Even in the interdisciplinary branches because of this admission procedure is clear.

But there is a problem in this case... suppose u are applying for IITG... now with this year's rank of 900+ u will NEVER be shortlisted for IITG.. but with last year's rank of 350 atleast might give u some chance if any...

call the IITs directly. They will definitely help you.
