The GATE, is an all-India entrance test to screen candidates for their comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in engineering, technology, architecture and postgraduate level subjects in science.
It is a test for admissions to the MTech, ME courses and direct PhD at the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs), other government-funded technical institutions and many private universities and institutes across the country. This year’s GATE was jointly conducted by the IISc and seven IITs on behalf of the National Coordination Board - GATE, department of higher education, ministry of human resource and development.
Admission to postgraduate courses (master’s and doctoral) in the country, with MHRD and other government scholarships/assistantships in engineering, technology, architecture and science is open to those who qualify GATE. The GATE score is also used by some PSUs for their recruitment.
The GATE score is valid for three years. There is no restriction in the number of attempts for taking the test. The online paper contains some questions for which numerical answers need to be keyed in by the candidate using a virtual keypad. The remaining questions are multiple-choice type.
