Procedure for Contesting Answer Key

In the GOAPS portal, a module to contest answer keys will be available from 10:00 hours (IST) of 21 February 2018 till 18:00 hours (IST) of 23 February 2018.

The candidates can contest/challenge the answer key of any question after giving their justification and a payment of Rs. 500 (for each question) through the online payment link available in the GOAPS. Contests will be considered only if the payment is completed successfully. Payment for a challenge that is accepted will be refunded.

While challenging the answer keys, the candidates should ensure that the question number is as per the PDF file of the question paper uploaded on the GATE 2018 website. A preview of the question selected is also shown in the contest portal. Make sure that you select the right section and the question number which you wish to contest. Please note that if the question number is not correctly identified, then the challenge will not be considered. If you are uploading any supporting document for the contest, you must mention the section name and question number in the document.

For all contests on answer keys, the decision of the GATE 2018 committee shall be final and binding. No correspondence or telephone calls on this matter will be entertained.
