  1. Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all-India examination Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE): Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all India examination that primarily tests a comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in engineering and technology. is an all India examination that primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in Engineering and Technology. GATE is conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven IITs (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 Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India

    The GATE score of a candidate reflects a relative performance level in a particular paper in the exam across several years

    The score is used for admissions to post-graduate engineering programmes (M.E., M.Tech, and direct Ph.D) in Indian higher education institutes with financial assistance provided by MHRD and other Govt agencies

    Admission to post graduate programmes with MHRD and some other government scholarship/assistantship at engineering colleges/institutes in the country are open to those who qualify through GATE. GATE qualified candidates with Bachelor degree in Engineering, Technology, Architecture, Pharmacy or Master degree in any branch of Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Applications are eligible for Master, Doctoral programmes in Engineering, Technology, Architecture, Pharmacy as well as for Doctoral programmes in relevant branches of Science. To avail the scholarship, the candidate must additionally secure admission to such a postgraduate programme, as per the prevailing procedure of the admitting institution. GATE qualification, however, is not required for candidates with Master degree in Engineering/ Technology/ Architecture/ Pharmacy who may be seeking scholarship/assistantship for relevant doctoral programmes.
