Conducted by the Indian Institute of Science and the IIT, GATE scores are used for admission to MTech/PhD programmes in IITs, IISc and various other institutes. GATE is conducted in 23 disciplines of engineering and science subjects and identifies the candidate’s understanding of a subject and aptitude and eligibility for higher studies.
GATE scores are also used as a criterion for recruitment in government organisations such as cabinet secretariat, and national and state public sector undertakings in India. Many GATE qualified candidates are paid scholarships or assistantship, especially funded by the ministry of human resources development and by other ministries.
The GATE score is valid for 3 years.
Note: Candidates should visit the GATE website regularly for updates.
