What is GATE?
- GATE stands for Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering, an all-India examination of engineers.
- It is administered and conducted in eight zones across the country by the GATE committee comprising of faculty members from IISc, Bangalore and seven IITs on behalf of the National Coordinating Board, Department of Education, Ministry of Human Resources Development.
- GATE is the gateway for the admissions to postgraduate programmes like M.E., M.Tech, M.S., PhD in the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and other top notch engineering colleges of India. Students who pursue these courses after getting admission through GATE also avail the financial scholarship given by MHRD, India.
- Not only this, many Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) in India directly recruit through GATE for various elite jobs with attractive remuneration.
- A candidate has an option to appear in any one subject out of the 23 subjects (tabulated below) in GATE examination. However, candidates are expected to appear in a paper appropriate to the discipline of their qualifying degree.
|Aerospace Engineering||AE||Geology and Geophysics||GG|
|Agricultural Engineering||AG||Instrumentation Engineering||IN|
|Architecture and Planning||AR||Life Sciences||XL|

Importance of GATE
- GATE is the entrance test for engineering students for getting admissions to various Post-Graduate and Doctoral programs in higher education institutes of India (IITs, IISc& other top notch engineering colleges) with financial assistance provided by MHRD, Government of India.
- Higher salaries are offered for M.Tech/ M.E. candidates.
- M.E. / M.Tech candidates get good salary packages as faculty positions in private engineering colleges of India.
- Pursuing Master’s Degree gives great learning and research opportunities.
- Many Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) in India such as BHEL, Indian Oil Corporation, NTPC, NHPC, PSPCL etc. use GATE scores to recruit graduate engineers for elite engineering and administrative jobs with good salary packages.
- Candidates who have good GATE scores can apply for faculty / research positions in educational institutes / R&D centres such as CSIR, CBRI, BARC, CSIO etc. They become eligible to get financial scholarships as Senior Research Fellowship (SRF) or Junior Research Fellowship (JRF). Working in good institutes increase the candidate’s exposure as they get to interact with renowned scientists all over the world.
- GATE qualified candidates are preferred in many industries and foreign universities. Worldwide reputed universities like NUS and NTU Singapore admit directly through GATE scores in their post graduate programs.

Subjectwise Analysis of Previous GATE
Type of Questions : GATE 2017
GATE 2017 would contain questions of two different types in various papers:
(A) Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) carrying 1 or 2 marks each in all papers andsections. These questions are objective in nature, and each will have a choice of fouranswers, out of which the candidate has to mark the correct answer(s).
(B) Numerical Answer Questions of 1 or 2 marks each in all papers and sections.For these questions the answer is a real number, to be entered by the candidateusing the virtual keypad. No choices will be shown for this type of questions.
Design of Questions
The questions in a paper may be designed to test the following abilities:
(a) Recall: These are based on facts, principles, formulae or laws of the discipline ofthe paper. The candidate is expected to be able to obtain the answer either fromhis/her memory of the subject or at most from a one-line computation.
(b) Comprehension: These questions will test the candidate’s understanding of thebasics of his/her field, by requiring him/her to draw simple conclusions fromfundamental ideas.
(c) Application: In these questions, the candidate is expected to apply his/herknowledge either through computation or by logical reasoning.
(d) Analysis and Synthesis: In these questions, the candidate is presented withdata, diagrams, images etc. that require analysis before a question can beanswered. A Synthesis question might require the candidate to compare two ormore pieces of information. Questions in this category could, for example, involvecandidates in recognizing unstated assumptions, or separating useful informationfrom irrelevant information.
