Reasons Why to Appear for GATE
Other Reasons to Appear for GATE
  • Master's degree leads to specialization and
    cultivates and brings out the best of your
    interest in a certain area which may lead to
    research / PhD.
  • More domain-specific companies recruit through
    campus recruitment in leading Institutes.
  • Higher salaries are offered for the postgraduate
    students when compared to a graduate.
  • A Masters degree is a must for those wishing to
    apply for Faculty/Research positions in
    educational institutes and most of the RD
  • Scholarship of Rs 12,400/- is paid during Masters
    Course So no dependency on parents for financial
  • Most importantly to get to be a part of any
    nationally reputed Educational Institute and
    enjoy learning and research in a conducive
  • can clear other exam too like SSC-JE, State AE
    exams, HPCL, BARC, ISRO and all other PSU exams
    because syllabus is almost same and other exams
    are a bit easier than GATE Exam.
  • Last but not the least, a Master course changes
    the individual's thought process teaches us how
    to approach and solve a problem in a totally new
    unknown environment.

Importance Priorities of GATE?
  • If a students score good marks in GATE Exam,
    their first priority is to get a PSU Job which
    have a lot of benefits and good salary package.
  • Many PSUs accept GATE Score, whereas other PSUs
    conduct their own test which has same syllabus
    that of GATE, so if a student is preparing for
    GATE, he will surely succeed in other PSU exams
  • Next priority will be to get admission into top
    IITs, IISc and top NITs for M. Tech. Student need
    to fill separately for each IITs and IISc,
    whereas all the other NITs and good Govt.
    Colleges are covered through CCMT counselling.
  • The GATE Score also helps in the admission in
    different Foreign Universities.
  • Some private sector employers in the core sectors
    (more relevant for Civil, Mechanical, Electrical
    and Electronics Engineering companies) also give
    weightage to Good GATE score/GATE Rank

    related also. Questions are asked from the final
    year projects also.
  • Many PSU also conducts Group Discussion Round
    (Either 1 or 2)
  • However more weightage is given to the GATE
    Score. Like 70-80 Weightage will be of GATE
    Score and the remaining will include Personal
    Interview Score, GD Score and somewhere
    Graduation marks also.
  • Also, some PSUs just consider GATE Score for
    their final merit list.

Foreign University through GATE Score
Universities which accept GATE score in
Singapore Two of the best known universities in
Singapore Nanyang Technological University
(NTU) and National University of Singapore (NUS)
accept GATE score for admission to their post
graduate programmes. They are the one of the
highly ranked universities and are positioned
among the top 20 universities in the world
according to global research surveys. Nanyang
Technological University accepts GATE scores for
its PhD and M.Eng programmes. Universities
which accept GATE score in Germany As in
Singapore, few universities in Germany also
accept GATE score for their post graduate
engineering programmes. Two most of the prominent
among them are the Technical University of
Germany and the RWTH ACHEN. Usually the students

Some Points Around GATE Cut-Off
  • Number of students appearing for GATE are getting
    reduced drastically because the Number of PSUs
    accepting GATE Score are releasing less
  • Also, the vacancies are not released by all PSUs
    every year. Only some PSUs release their
    vacancies through GATE every year.
  • The competition is very high in Mechanical and
    Electrical branch therefore Cut-Offs are very
    high in these branches.
  • Many PSUs are conducting their own exam for
    recruitment like HPCL, HAL, SAIL etc conducted
    their own written test this year.

during preparation Understand the previous year
questions pattern. Practice previous year
questions during preparation. Try to understand
the concepts, practice tests and revise
regularly. Most of the questions in GATE are
Conceptual Numerical, so you must try to
improve your solving ability time management to
score a good rank. 4. Plan your GATE 2022
Preparation A 7 to 8 months Preparation Plan
will be a good idea to crack the GATE
exam. Create the preparation plan daily wise or
weekly wise by giving enough time for each
subject. Plan should include syllabus
completion, revision, and practice tests. Make a
timetable and formulate your daily tasks. Once
you have set daily, weekly and monthly targets,
you will see better results for the same amount
of effort.

5. Follow the plan to Complete the Syllabus
Start preparation with an easy subject and an
important one. mathematics and one basic
technical subject is good to start preparation.
Read topic by topic to complete the entire GATE
Syllabus. Make a revision note for each topic
that should cover all important definitions,
formulas, differences, etc. Practice topic wise
previous GATE questions after understanding each
topic. Attempt the quizzes/tests for each topic
and subject to know your performance. Clear all
your doubts during your preparation. Identify
the weakness areas while practising quizzes/tests
and try to revise and practise those topics. 6.
Revise everything you studied for GATE
Preparation Read the revision notes on a weekly
basis to recall the concepts of prepared
subjects. 7. Practice the Mock Tests Keep
attempting online mock tests. Practice the mock
tests to improve performance. Performance depends
on how much time is devoted to answering each
question and how many questions are answered
correctly. 8. Revise and Practice in the last
stage Give time for both revisions and
practice. Practice more tests, identify the
weaker topics in each test and revise them.
Practice 2 to 5 tests every day and recall all
concepts during your practice.

Insights Around ESE Cut-Off
  • The Cut-Off for both ESE Prelims and ESE Mains
    has increased in the year 2020 as compared to
    previous years.
  • This is mainly due to the decreased number of
    vacancies and very tough competition.
  • Also, the difficulty level matters. If the
    Difficulty Level will be high, then Cut-Off will
    be less and vice versa.
  • Also, Railways has removed their seats from ESE
    2020 onwards, so the number of vacancies has
    decreased a lot.
  • Railways will be conducting IRMS but till date,
    no notification or advertisement has been
    released by the Government.
  • IRMS will be dedicated for Railway's vacancies of
    Class-1 Officer.
