GATE Examination Details

The examination is a single paper of 3 hours duration and generally consists of
Section A (Objective Type) which is of 75 marks and
Section B (Problem Type) which is of 75 marks.
Total: 150 marks.

You have to opt for your subject and study as per the syllabus mentioned in the GATE brochure.

The subjects of our interest are Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering., Electrical Engineering and Instrumentation Engineering. Other subjects are also available such as Mathematics, Physics, etc

Generally a large number of students appear for the Computer Science subject in order to do a M.Tech in Computer Science.

Old question papers are available in the shops.

After publication of GATE results, students must apply to individual Institutes to get their application forms.

Institutes advertise M.Tech admissions in leading newspapers from 1st April till end July. However some Institutes do not advertise and therefore students have to get the forms themselves.

In the application forms, you have to mention your GATE score alongwith other details.

The concerned Institute may conduct written test and/or interview for the purpose of admission.

Results of qualified candidates in GATE will give All India Rank and indicate percentile score. For example, a percentile score of 99 means you are in the top 1% category of the candidates who appeared for GATE.

Candidates who get less than 70 percentile get no score card.

GATE scores are valid for 2 years. You may reappear the GATE exam if you are not satisfied with the earlier score and the new score (if better than the old one) will be used for admission purposes.
