GATE Exam (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) is an all India examination that primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in Engineering and Technology. Candidates preparing for Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) are advised to stay updated with this section.
The GATE Examination is of 3 hours duration, and contains a total of 65 questions worth a maximum of 100 marks. The questions in GATE Exam (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) consist of both multiple choice questions (four answer options out of which the correct one has to be chosen) and numerical answer type questions (answer is a real number, to be entered via an on-screen keypad and computer mouse). 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 operations related to GATE in each of the 8 zones are managed by a Zonal GATE Office at IISc. or IITs. The Organizing Institute (OI) is responsible for the end to end process and coordination amongst the administering Institutes. The GATE examination for all the papers is carried out in an online Computer Based Test (CBT) mode where the candidates are shown the questions in a random series on a computer screen. Each year, approximately 15% of all appearing candidates qualify. Public sector undertakings (PSUs) in India, for long, have had troubles conducting their recruitment processes with more than 100k students taking the exams for less than 1000 jobs. After sensing the increase in the number of engineering graduates in India who wish to get a PSU job, the PSUs (Public sector undertakings in India) have decided that a GATE score shall be the primary criteria for initial shortlisting. The GATE Committee has the authority to decide the qualifying mark or score for each GATE paper.
