The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) will be held In January and February 2015. GATE is an all-India examination that primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of the candidate in various undergraduate subjects in engineering/technology/architecture and postgraduate level subjects in science.

The GATE score of a candidate reflects a relative performance level in a particular subject in the exam across several years. The score is used for admissions to postgraduate programmes (eg, ME, MTech, direct PhD) in Indian institutes of higher education with financial assistance provided by the ministry of human resource development and other government agencies. The score may also be used by public and private sector undertakings for employment screening purposes.

The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs at Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee) jointly administer the conduct of GATE. The organising institute is responsible for the end-to-end process and coordination amongst the administering institutes. The organising institute for GATE 2015 is IIT Kanpur. Examinations for all the 22 papers will be conducted by a computer-based test.
