What is GATE :
The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an allIndia examination that primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in engineering and science. GATE is conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, IIT Guwahati, IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Madras and IIT Roorkee) on behalf of the National Coordination Board – GATE, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Government of India.
The GATE score of a candidate reflects the relative performance level of a candidate. The score is used for admissions to various postgraduate programs (e.g. Master of Engineering, Master of Technology, Doctor of Philosophy) in Indian higher education institutes, with financial assistance provided by MHRD and other government agencies. Recently, GATE scores are also being used by several Indian public sector undertakings (i.e., governmentowned companies) for recruiting graduate engineers in entrylevel positions. It is one of the most competitive examinations in India.

GATE Eligibility :
The following are eligible to take GATE:
 Bachelor’s degree holders in Engineering/ Technology/ Architecture (4 years after 10+2/ PostB.Sc./ PostDiploma) and those who are in the final year of such programs.
 Master’s degree holders in any branch of Science/ Mathematics/ Statistics/ Computer Applications or equivalent and those who are in the final year of such programs.
 Candidates in the second or higher year of Fouryear integrated Master’s degree programs (PostB.Sc.) in Engineering/ Technology.
 Candidates in the fourth or higher year of Fiveyear integrated Master’s degree programs or Dual Degree programs in Engineering/Technology.
 Candidates with qualifications obtained through examinations conducted by professional societies recognized by UPSC/AICTE (e.g. AMIE by iE(i), AMICE(i) by the institute of Civil Engineers (India)iCE(i)) as equivalent to B.E./B.Tech.
Those who have completed section A or equivalent of such professional courses are also eligible.

GATE Disciplines and Structure
At present, GATE is conducted in the following 22 disciplines. A candidate can select any one of these.
 GATE Exam Pattern :
 Each subject’s test contains 10 questions that test the “general aptitude” (language and analytic skills), apart from the core subject of the discipline.
 The GATE examination consists of a single test of 3hour duration that contains a total of 65 questions, worth a maximum of 100 marks. The questions consist of both multiple choice questions (MCQs) and numerical answer type questions. Numerical answer type questions does not contain any options for the answers, the candidate has to solve the numerical and write the answer in the spec given.
 From 2014 onward, the examination for all the papers is carried out in an online Computer Based Test (CBT) mode where the candidates are shown the questions in a random sequence on a computer screen. The candidates are required to either select the answer (for multiplechoice question type) or enter the answer for numerical answer type question using a mouse on a virtual keyboard (keyboard of the computer is disabled). Candidates are provided with blank paper sheets for rough work and these have to be returned after the examination. At the end of the 3hour window, the computer automatically closes the screen from further actions.

GATE Result and Valid GATE Score :
GATE results are usually declared about one month after the examinations are over at the GATE Official website. The results show the total marks scored by a candidate, the GATE score, the allIndia rank and the cut off marks for various categories in the candidate’s paper. The score is valid for 3 years from the date of announcement of the results. The score cards are issued to only the qualified candidates.
