Marks required to get a top 100 rank in GATE Environmental Science 2022/ 2023

Every GATE aspirant has this motive to score good marks to come under AIR 100 in GATE Environmental Science. Most of the aspirants have this question i.e., "How many marks is a good mark?". No matter whether you are attempting GATE this year or you are preparing for GATE 2023, this is an important question, knowing which could have lots of benefits during your GATE preparation as well as during the exam. In this post, we are precisely trying to answer the question so read further to get cleared of all your doubts.



This blog has been broken down into the following sub-topics.

  • Why should we know how much to score?

  • Previous year GATE marks vs GATE rank?

  • Marks required to get a top 100 rank in GATE

  • Mock test for GATE environmental science?


Why should we know how much marks to score in GATE?


  • It eases your preparation - as you know your target marks it becomes easy to sort out high-weightage subjects and prepare them thoroughly. Know the weightage of subjects in GATE environmental science here.

  • It makes you feel relaxed while attending the exam - if you are aware that you can skip some 10 questions, you can relaxedly skip time-consuming questions and attempt the next easy ones.


Be aware that this is just a guide, and not like "okay I have to score only 75 marks to get AIR 100". Because there are several uncertainties in the GATE exam which are listed below.

  • If the exam is easy, you might have to attempt more questions.

  • If the exam is difficult, you can afford to skip one or two more questions.


GATE marks vs GATE rank for Environmental Science


From analysing the previous year GATE environmental science exam results, let's see how much mark is required to get an AIR100, AIR50, and qualifying marks.


  • AIR 50 - 72+ marks

  • AIR 100 - 69+ marks

  • Qualifying marks - 40+ marks


By seeing the above marks, it is clear that a lesser mark is only required to get an AIR 100 when compared to GATE civil engineering. But, as the average mark was higher last year, qualifying marks was at 40 + for the general category, and therefore more focus is required to qualify the paper. Also, as more PSUs are recruiting from GATE ES paper, it is advisable to get an AIR 50 to grab the opportunity of getting recruited in a PSU.


Aim for 70+ marks to get a top rank
