Why GATE examination ?

  • To get admission in the highly reputed institutes like IISc, IIT's, NIT's etc
  • It gives more knowledge, which makes the person independent in life.
  • It helps to get good job and the job satisfaction.
  • In many private institutions, GATE is the mandatory qualification for admission to postgraduate programs.
  • In many Government organization,the GATE qualification is the important criterion for applying to post of an Engineers/Scientist.
  • Some of the Universities from abroad also considers the GATE score for admission to their Master programs.
  • Indian Institute of Managements consider the GATE score for their postgraduates programs. For more details, please see the respective IIMs sites.
