Advantages of GATE Scores

PSU's like BARC, NPCIL, HAL etc. give importance to GATE scores for various
job positions in their organizations. GATE seats are fixed in every institute.
Pharma graduate (post-graduate in India) schools have also got there fixed
GATE seats. A student is also eligible for a monthly scholarship of Rs. 8000.
The examination also tests the takers' perseverance and patience.
Applying to various institutes
Usually IISc application dates are within 4-5 days of announcement of results.
Most institutes do not specify their cut-offs for previous years. So there is a
general confusion in terms of selecting institutes and specializations. But in
the recent years IIT Kharagpur and Guwahati have been specifying last year
cut-off mark list.
Validity of GATE score
A person is eligible to GATE in the pre final year of the qualifying degree.
However the GATE score will remain valid only upto the next GATE
examination. That is if a person has given GATE 2008 examination, the score
will be valid only upto GATE 2009.If a person wants, he or she can attempt
the GATE paper in the pre qualifying year of his or her degree for practice or
to get a feel of the paper. From 2009 onwards, GATE score will be valid for
the one year only. This means that GATE 2009 score is valid for 2009
admissions only.

The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all-India examination administered and
conducted in eight zones across the country by the GATE Committee comprising faculty from Indian
Institute of Science, Bangalore and seven Indian Institutes of Technology on behalf of the National
Coordinating Board - GATE, Department of Education, Ministry of Human Resources Development
(MHRD), Government of India.

Admission to post graduate programmes at engineering and other professional colleges in the country
such as IISc Bangalore, IITs, NITs and NIPER are open to those who qualify through GATE. Students who
wish take admission in masters courses such as M.Tech, M.E. or M.Pharm in India have to take GATE.

GATE qualified candidates in Engineering disciplines are also eligible for the award of Junior Research
Fellowship in CSIR Laboratories. Some government organizations prescribe GATE qualification as a
requirement for applying to the post of a Scientist/Engineer.

GATE is conducted in 21 streams. They are Electronics and Communications Engineering, Computer
Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Pharmaceutical Sciences,
Instrumentation Engineering, Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering,
Agricultural Engineering, Architecture and Planning, Geology and Geophysics, Mathematics, Mining
Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Production and Industrial Engineering, Textile Engineering and
Fiber Science, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering Sciences and Life Science.

Eligibility for GATE

The following categories of candidates are eligible to appear in GATE
Bachelor degree holders in Engineering/ Technology/ Architecture/Pharmacy (4 years after 10+2) and
those who are in the final or pre-final year of such programmes.
Master degree holders in any branch of Science/ Mathematics/ Statistics/ Computer Applications or
equivalent and those who are in the final or pre-final year of such programmes.
Candidates in the second or higher year of the Four-year Integrated Master degree programme (Post-
B.Sc.) in Engineering/Technology or in the third or higher year of Five-year Integrated Master degree
programme and Dual Degree programme in Engineering/Technology.
Candidates with qualifications obtained through examinations conducted by professional societies
recognised by UPSC/AICTE (e.g. AMIE) as equivalent to B.E./B.Tech. Those who have completed section
A or equivalent of such professional courses are also eligible.

The GATE examination consists of a single paper of 3 hours duration. The question paper consists of only
objective type questions. Each question will have four choices for the answer. Only one choice is correct.
There will be negative marking for wrong answers. The deduction for each wrong answer will be 25% of
the allotted marks.

The question paper will be for a total of 150 marks divided into three groups:
(i) Group I: Question Numbers 1 to 20 (20 questions) will carry one mark each (sub total 20 marks).

(ii) Group II: Question Numbers 21 to 75 (55 questions) will carry two marks each (sub total 110 marks).
Out of these, Q.71 to Q.75 may be common data based questions.

(iii) Group III: Question Numbers 76 to 85 (10 questions) will carry two marks each (sub total 20 marks).
These questions are called linked answer questions. These 10 questions comprise five pairs of questions
(76 & 77, 78 & 79, etc.). The solution to the second question of each pair (e.g. Q.77) will be linked to the
correct answer to the first one (e.g. Q.76) in the pair.

Each question will have four choices for the answer. Only one choice is correct. Wrong answers carry
25% negative marks. In Q.1 to Q.20, 0.25 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer and in Q.21 to
Q.76, Q.78, Q.80, Q.82 and Q.84, 0.5 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. If the first question in
the linked pair is wrong, then the second question in the pair will not be evaluated. However, there is no
negative marking for the linked answer questions - Q.77, Q.79, Q.81, Q.83 and Q.85.

Papers bearing the code AE, AG, CE, CH, CS, EC, EE, IN, ME, MN, MT, PI, TF will contain questions on
Engineering Mathematics to the extent of 20 to 25 marks.

All About GATE
What is GATE all about?
GATE is organized by IITs and IISc, which have pioneered advanced education at masters level in India.
The sole purpose of GATE is not only to conduct a test for admission but, which is also the major goal, to
identify the suitable engineers/researchers in various areas and make them to choose their area of choice
in which they can pursue their master degree. As you know by now, GATE is only organized by IITs and
IISc which always try to innovate and introduce new systems to test the basic knowledge of candidates in
various fields. As a part of that innovation, the previous year GATE papers were fully objective type. This
year also the same pattern is being used, and mathematics added! Although this made the job relatively
easier for the evaluators, the candidates now have a bound choice to cover all the topics. As you know,
the setting of questions papers at IITs and IISc in itself is very interesting. The designated faculty in each
of the areas who provide the syllabus of a particular stream have the burden to set the questions which is
finally combined to a full length paper. Being set by the highly qualified faculty, the questions papers are
not like a very traditional one. They always try to test the very basic of candidates in respective areas by
bringing the element of innovation in these papers. It is not surprising that sometimes the questions are
mere applications of basic concepts in their area of research. The implication of this, it seems is that
cracking GATE with a very high percentile is merely having the basics cleared. No! Absolutely not! As
innovations are always a part of the question paper, one needs to be able to apply the basics in a new
application, too. That is why similar to JEE, GATE is altogether different from other competitive exams.
Here in GATE, one needs to prepare thoroughly by understanding the basics. Its not at all the mugging
up the end results (formulae) and directly applying them; instead, you need to know the principle in the
derivation of those end results because in most of the cases the questions are based on the basic
principle involved in the derivation, or the case where they may ask the behavior of the system under
some other conditions or simple application of that result.

To secure a very high percentile you should always remember the fact that you are adjudged relatively not
absolutely. Hence, your rank obviously depends on how you performed relative to your competitors. Many
times, it happens that the candidates are sure of getting many questions correct. But one should always
know that although the questions have only one correct answer, other probable choices are deliberately
put there to confuse the candidates. In that sense, preparing the choices other than the correct one is
also a part of the bringing the element of innovation, which really makes the life hell for a test taker to
arrive at the very correct choice.

The question that poses itself to the GATE aspirants now is, how does he prepare, what methods he
should adopt that would ensure his admission in the esteemed IITs or the IISc.
How to Prepare
How does one prepare for GATE, specifically GATE 2009
Before the marathon begins, the runner puts in months, even years, of effort before he actually runs the
race. As the saying goes get your fundamentals right. GATE is an exam that tests you on your
fundamentals. The questions are generally derivations of the fundamentals. Preparation for GATE is an
ongoing process, and is supposed to happen in stages. First get your fundamentals right, and then test
yourself on those fundamentals. When you have done this, you should pit yourself with the competition,
which means a mock test which would give you a percentile to let you know where you stand amongst

How do you choose which coaching material to go with. This is something that is quite subjective. A
coaching material cannot be assessed until you have gone through it. So, you could go by the word of
your seniors as to what coaching material they followed to prepare for GATE.

Here are some parameters on which you can decide whether you should go for a particular coaching
institute, use a particular coaching material, or tests:

1. Uniqueness in their study material: Study material provided by the coaching institutes is of little
assistance if they are compact copy-paste or rewrite of materials taken from other books. If the reading of
such material doesnt increase interest and enjoyment then they are not worth it. There are plenty of
standard books on each subject by good authors, which can make your study enjoyable during

2. Collection of quality books in their library: During the process of theory conceptualization and building
application capabilities, you need good books, which can really put your brain on exercise. Check out
their library!

3. Flexibility in the Coaching Model: What happens when your pace of learning is much faster or slower
than the average? Is there any mechanism by which the model can identify exactly where you need help
and provide the same? Is it possible in that coaching model to minimize the wastage of your time?

4. Quality of questions discussed: Number of questions discussed is not that important. By discussing and
solving 10-15 conceptual questions on each topic you can build a good application capability. On the
other hand solving many tricky non-conceptual questions will simply waste your time.

5. Tests and evaluation model: How is the progress of your preparation tested and analyzed? To what
extent the feedback helps in identifying the areas for further work? Here I must say that this is the most
crucial part of the preparation. This is the area where most of the students fail due to lack of proper test
materials which can help them to build in themselves a real-test-like environment and temperament. Once
you are able to choose the correct assistance for your GATE journey, it will be an enjoying and thrilling

Here are some things apart from working on your engineering concepts, that you should do for a
complete preparation for GATE

1. Solve previous years GATE papers: Solving previous years papers gives you a fair idea of what the
actual paper would be like. It also brushes up your basics and exposes your areas of improvement.

2. Solve test papers: Solve as many test papers as possible. This actually is the best way to keep
improving as you prepare for GATE.

3. Analyze : Analyzing your test results is a very important part of taking the test. If you do not analyze,
the test does not add value. You should minutely analyze and define as to where you could have scored
more; analyze your accuracy rates in various topics and maintain a topic wise datasheet which lists your
performance topic wise for different test papers.

4. Take up an all India test series which gives you your percentile and All India Rank : This is very
important to avoid the frog in the pond syndrome. Students tend to take it easy if they attain a high score
in the tests. However, GATE is an exam in which people are selected on their relative scores. So even if
you have scored 95% it does not essentially translate to a percentile of 95. You are competing with the
best in India, and to get through GATE you should know where you stand to be among the top few
selected for the interview. A test series of this sort is being provided by GATE Forum

5. Simulate actual test environment : This is very important. The actual test happens in a classroom, and
is timed. When you take up the test, switch off your cell phone, have a timer which times your tests, and
avoid taking any breaks. Also, if possible, take up a mock test series which enables you to take the test in
a classroom environment.

We are presenting below a series of interviews of some of our toppers in GATE

Rakesh, AIR 1, CS, GATE 2008, answers below some of the questions posed by us in an interview to
help benefit present and future GATE Aspirants.
Pimplikar Rakesh Rameshrao
Stream CS
[Roll no: 156551]
1. When and from which college did you complete your engineering?
I have completed my B.E. in Computer Science from Shri Guru Gobind Singhji Institute of Engineering &
Technology, Nanded (Maharashtra) in the year 2007.
2. Have you taken GATE earlier and how was your performance in it?
Earlier I have attempted GATE twice. In GATE 2006, my score was just 355 and rank was 2238. In GATE
2007, my score was 424 and rank was 932. I improved it significantly in GATE 2008. Now my score is 935
and rank is 1.
3. Can you recollect when you started preparation for GATE 2008? (Which year of engineering /
I got job through campus. But as I was desperate for M.Tech. from a reputed institute, I didnt join the job.
I feel it is very difficult to give time for technical studies while doing a job. I was very good in basic
concepts in my engineering course. I started preparing seriously for GATE 2008 in August 2007. I think if
you are good in basics, a consistent study of 4-5 months is sufficient to crack GATE. Third and final year
of Engineering is the right time to clear your basics.
4. When you started your preparation, what was your aim in GATE?
In the beginning I didnt aim high. (Consequently) My aim was to get into top 100 rankers so that I can get
admission in IIT. Accordingly I planned my studies.
5. When you were preparing for GATE, were you expecting this rank?
When I started preparing I wasnt expecting this rank. Later on, I joined GATEFORUM test series in
August 2008. When I started getting good All India Rank in mock tests, my confidence was boosted. I felt
that with consistent study I could get AIR 1 in GATE as well. In such a way, GATEFORUM test series
helped me to analyze myself and to improve over weak areas. It was really useful to know where I stand
in India.
6. What were the subjects you felt were tough?
In the beginning, Theory of Computation, Compilers, Computer Organization, Operating Systems &
Computer Networks were tough for me. But logical approach helped me to get command over these
subjects. I concentrated over only those topics which are given in GATE syllabus and I solved as many
problems from these subjects as possible.
7. What were the subjects you felt were easy?
Subjects like Discrete Mathematics, Data Structures, Computer Algorithms, C-Programming, Digital
Electronics, Database Managements Systems were easy for me.
8. Which books and material did you refer to in your preparation?
I think books prescribed by any university syllabus are standard books and those books are sufficient for
GATE studies. Books only help us clearing concepts, but GATE is all about application of those concepts.
So unless you practice problems from previous GATE papers or from other mock test series, you cannot
crack GATE.
9. How did Gateforums coaching / correspondence course / test series help in your preparation?
I had joined GATEFORUM test series only. I think it played a very important role in my preparation. The
main thing is that it provides All India Rank in every test so that you come to know where you stand in
India. It helps very much to boost your confidence. In the beginning I was thinking to get into top 100
rankers only. As I started improving in test series, I thought I could also get into top 5 or even AIR 1. It
also helped me to learn time management. Subject wise analysis and ranking is another feature of this
test series so that I came to know where I was weak and which area I should improve upon. Reading
tough topics, appearing for next test, analyzing weak areas, improving over weak areas, again appearing
for next test, this cycle can be followed in this test series. And 10 such tests are enough to get perfection.
Thus GATEFORUM test series is the perfect simulation of real GATE exam./
10. What are the strengths of Gateforums product?
It is precise as per the GATE syllabus and it shows the right direction for the preparation.
11. In your opinion what are the major reasons for your success in GATE?
I believe in 3 Cs, Confidence, Consistency and Concentration. 3 Cs are sufficient to get success in any
field. Again you should have burning desire to achieve something. I solved around 35 full length GATE
question papers (previous year papers and mock test series papers). And I analyzed each and every
paper after solving it. Solving problems is the key. Also, right decision at right time is the reason for my
12. What was your methodology while preparing for GATE?
I had joined coaching. So my habit was to revise the topic at home on the same day when it was taught in
class. Also I was trying to solve problems over that topic at home. If there was any difficulty, I used to ask
it to Sir on next day. In such a way, I didnt leave any concept uncleared. I used to revise every subject
once in at least 15 days so that it remains fresh in your mind. Otherwise you will forget few concepts by
the time of exam. Also I was appearing for GATEFORUM mock tests regularly.
13. When did you complete the syllabus? And were you able to revise? (how many times)
I completed my syllabus well in advance before 1 and half month. Then I revised syllabus within 15-20
days. Earlier I kept revising every subject at least once in 15 days. So approximately I revised entire
syllabus 6-7 times. And that is important too, because GATE syllabus is so vast that if dont revise
periodically, you will forget it.
14. How did you prepare in the last 2 months before GATE?
In last 2 months, I revised all subjects twice. In the last 1 month I didnt read any new concept. I was just
solving question papers in the last month.
15. What suggestion and preparation tips would you like to give to GATE aspirants?
Very first point is you should have a strong desire to crack GATE. Give importance to GATE study over
activities for at least 4-5 months. Plan your study as per time you have. Dont read entire book for a
subject. Be precise and practice as many problems as you can. Practicing problem is the key. Hard work
of 4-5 months is sufficient to crack GATE.
16. Which institute and specialization are you planning to take up?
Most probably, I will go for IIT Bombay. I am interested in Data Mining and Networks.

9. How did Gateforums Coaching / Correspondence course / Test series help in your preparation?
I had applied for the Gateforum test series only. Performance analysis provided by Gateforum helped in
detecting my weak areas. All India ranking system tells where we stand in national level competition.
Method of conducting the exam & many question are very similar to actual GATE paper. Overall test
series gives a nice practice of solving the GATE Question Paper in limited time. This experience helps in
actual GATE paper.

13. How did you prepare in the last 2 months before GATE?
Dont learn new things in last two months. Try to study 2 to 3 different subjects each day. Solve at least 1
paper in each week. Prepare all syllabus; do not skip any subject or topic. It is possible to prepare all
subjects thoroughly but do something from everything so that you can solve at least easy questions from
each topic.
14. What suggestion preparation tips would you like to give to GATE aspirants?
Basic requirement for GATE exam is that your concepts should be clear. Try to understand as many
concepts as possible thoroughly; but this is not enough for getting very high rankings. To increase
speeds, try to solve many different types of problems & many question papers (within time). Try to make
optimum use of calculator.
15. Which institute specialization are you planning to take up?
I have planned for taking admission in IISc Bangalore in Mechanical Engineering.

GATE is the first step in the path towards securing admission for post graduate courses in various
engineering and pharmacy colleges in India. The post GATE admission process in these institutes is as
complicated and competitive, if not more, as GATE itself. The post GATE admission process in Indian
Institutes of Technologies, Indian Institution of Science and NITs involves a complicated selection and
evaluation process where the best institutes and also the best candidates try and identify the best fit for
their requirements and aspirations. However, unlike GATE, success in this process requires you to have
two important knowledge bases One, technical expertise and two, detailed information about availability
of courses, their interview and test process / cut off marks and closing dates. If you are sure of getting a
top 25 rank in your stream, then life is going to be easier for you. Just walk in, and take admission in the
revered Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. However, if you are not that fortunate, life can still be easy
and good for you. If you are expecting a rank between 30 and the 1500, we sincerely advise you to spend
some time with our post GATE Admission Tool Kit. Did you know that with a rank of about 1500, you can
get admission in IIT Kharagpur, or a Mechanical Engineering student with a rank of 50 may get admission
in Computer Science Department in IISc? Or, did you know that you can get admission in IIT Kharagpur
with a rank of 500? A small error in judgment could mean the difference between a seat in IISc and any of
the other institutions. Compiled and created by a team of IIT ad IISc alumni, post GATE Admission Tool
Kit is designed to guide you in your quest for getting that perfect seat for yourself.

Our team of experts has developed a unique teaching methodology designed to benefit all students. This
includes extensive concept building, problem solving, assessment and feedback. This is currently being
offered in the cities of Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Delhi.
