Top Marks in GATE 2010

It was hard for me know the highest or top marks scored in GATE during last year and many student asked about it. I decided to record the heights marks scored in GATE exam and make an analysis. This also helped me to make a generalized assumption about highest marks in GATE or marks that would fetch a seat in IIT.

The highest are marks totally depends and I always suggest GATE 2011 students to target highest marks. Dont be happy, if you are scoring same as highest marks of previous year. Be aware someone is always preparing for highest marks (ie. 100), if he or she make it you will be standing in a risk to get into IITs.

The highest marks in GATE 2010 for all the branches could not be collected. I think marks of student well below 10 gives a good estimate of highest marks for the engineering stream. I gave the rank for which the marks obtained and a guess for top marks in GATE. You can also refer to Total number of student appeared in GATE 2010 and GATE 2010 qualifying Marks for other related information.
