“I have a backlog in B.Tech., Am I eligible for GATE 2016 ?
Are the students who have backlogs in B.Tech. eligible for GATE 2016 ?
You all must have this kind of questions in your mind. Below article will solve this puzzle of yours. Just take a look.”

Bachelor in technology(B. Tech.)/bachelor in engineering(B.E.) is one of the common course which Indian students like to choose after completing their high school(Sr. Sec./12th). These courses are of generally 4 years for the candidates who get admission from 12th class to engineering directly through an entrance exam and 3 years for those who first completed 3 years engineering diploma. These 4 years are further divided into 8 semesters of 6 months duration. During these 4 years candidates attend several papers in order to pass their engineering course. Sometimes some candidates failed to achieve required marks to pass a particular subject. If they are requiring certain limited marks to pass, College allot them some grace marks but sometimes even grace marks can’t help the candidate and the candidate get backlog in those subject(s). Backlog subjects are the subjects which you can clear in consecutive years but you have to clear them before or along with final year so that your engineering degree remains in the limit of four years. Limiting engineering degree have varies advantages.

Queries for GATE 2016

There are many candidates who get confused with the eligibility of GATE and their B.Tech. performance. There are many candidates who have asked various questions to me about this issue many times. So that I decided to write a post on this issue. Here are the few queries which I have faced from candidates till now :       

1. I am studying in B.Tech. 3rd year of Mechanical engineering. I cleared my first year without any backlog but I got grace in two subjects with 65% in first year. Now I am confused that I would be eligible for GATE 2017 ?

2. I am a student of final semester of Civil engineering. I got one backlog in my first year of engineering. I have cleared that backlog. Does GATE office accept students who failed in few subjects in previous semester(s) for writing GATE examination ? 

3. I am studying in B.Tech. final year of Electrical engineering. I have two backlogs in my second semester. Which I haven’t passed yet. Now I am trying my level best. I am confident that I will clear these papers in final year. I don’t want to waste one year so can I apply for GATE 2016 ?

4. I did my B. Tech. course during 2011-2015. I had 23 backlogs during these 4 years. I have cleared 18 backlogs till now. I still have 5 backlogs to clear. I will write those exams in the year 2016. Therefore my B. Tech 4 year course will convert into 5 year course. I am planning to write GATE 2016. Till now my aggregate is 66%. I am pretty much sure that it would above 60% when I will clear all my B. Tech. course papers. I am preparing hard to clear these backlogs in the coming attempt. As per my current record i.e., 5 year B.tech. , 23 backlogs and B.tech aggregate of nearly 60%, I have these two queries :
(1) Am I eligible for GATE 2016 ?
(2) Am I eligible for M. E. / M. Tech. ?

Eligibility for GATE 2016

Qualifying Degree : B.E./B.Tech./B.Pharm.
Qualifying Degree/Examination(Description) : Bachelor’s degree holders in Engineering / Technology (4 years after 10+2 or 3 years after Diploma in Engineering / Technology).
Description of Eligible Candidates : Who are currently in the final year or already completed.
* Information for GATE 2016.

There is nothing written about percentage in B.E./B.Tech./B.Pharm. course anywhere in GATE 2016 information brochure. Then what is the percentage criteria for GATE 2016 for a B.E./B.Tech./B.Pharm candidates ?

There is no certain percentage criteria for a B.E./B.Tech./B.Pharm. candidate who want to attend GATE 2016 examination. So one who cleared or sure about clearing B.E./B.Tech./B.Pharm course in the year 2016, are eligible for GATE 2016.

    • Hello deepu,

      As you still have backlog to clear which you would clear by 2016 then you have to fill 2016.

  7. hi sir..i did my BE degree during 2010-2014.but in that course i remained with two backlogs and i completed those in september 2015 with percentage 65% and categery SC.so please answer my following doubts
    1.in any psu notification 4 YEAR BE/B.TECH means am i eligible for that?
    2.am i eligble for gate 2016?if yes then what i should write my passed out year/year of passing 2014 or 2015 ??
    3.and if i get gud rank in gate ,for students like me waht is the probability for getting selected by psu BARC OCES/DGFS.please give reply sir..these questions are eating my mind.

    • Hello swetha,

      1. Yes you are eligible. That 4 year is written for your course duration not for duration in which a candidate completed his/her 4 year course.
      2. Passing year means completing course in all means. So because of your backlog you completed your graduation in the year 2015.
      3. Generally such Institutes which you mentioned above require good academic record but if you are confident about your preparation and get good rank in GATE exam then you must prepare for such exams. There are many ways for the candidates who are preparing GATE nowadays.

  8. Sir,
    While getting sign from the principal for backlog paper case should the photo fixed on the form should also be signed by principal

  9. hi sir, i am in 2010-2015 dual degree. i have a few backlogs which i am 100% sure to clear in july 2016.
    am i elligible for gate 2016?

    after completing my course i have come home. it has been mentioned in the information brochure that we can either submit declaration from principal or marksheet from any of the semester of the final year. i have my 9th and 10th sem marksheets with me. but it will be difficult for me to obtain the declaration from principal,before due date.

    can i submit a copy of 9th/10th semester marksheet instead?

    • Hello neel,

      Yes you are eligible for GATE 2016 if you clear your B E / B Tech course by 2016 or earlier or Dual degree course by 2017 or earlier.
      It would be better if you upload declaration from principal rather than uploading marksheet. Rest depends upon you.

  11. Hai sir.i have cmptd b.trch in 2015 and i had a backlog so i can eligible for gate 2016……

    • Hello rakesh,

      Yes you can apply but you would be able to take advantage of GATE 2016 score only if you clear your B E / B Tech course by 2016 or earlier.

      Feel free to ask if you need any help in future & join us @ Google+ / Facebook for getting regular updates.

  12. Hello Sir,
    I am currently in 4th yr and I have 4 backlogs from my previous yrs. Now from your post I understand that if I clear them by this yr then there is no problem.
    But what if I get good GATE score but failed to clear all those backlogs, will my score be valid for next year.

    More clearly the situation is say: I have a GATE-2016 score but wasn’t able to clear all my previous backlogs or say got a new backlog in 4th yr itself. Will then I be able to use this score in 2017 as GATE scores are now valid for 3 yrs.

    • Hello Vineet,

      Minimum qualification to attend GATE exam is completing 4 year B E / B Tech for an engineering graduate.
      If you haven’t clear minimum qualification before attending GATE exam then how could you be awarded that qualification without qualifying minimum qualification for that ?
      So you would not eligible for any advantage of GATE exam if you don’t clear your B E / B Tech course before 2016.

      Feel free to ask if you need any help in future & join us @ Google+ / Facebook for getting regular updates.

      • I understand that.
        Still the question remains, since my situation would be same as someone who is giving GATE-2016 but has backlogs from previous years (say his actual graduation yr was 2015).
        Being an eligible candidate he sits for GATE-2016. Now suppose he couldn’t clear them again i.e. by 2016. So what you are saying that, now his GATE-2016 score won’t be valid even in yr 2017 if he happens to clear the backlogs by then and he has to appear for GATE-2017 again.

        So overall, having a GATE score valid for 3 yrs has a meaning only for those who has already completed their graduation not for someone who has backlogs and happens to clear them by next year or two.

    • This is not true. You could use your gate score once you have completed your course. Admin you have false info.

  13. sir,i am waiting for result .actualy i have one back currently.then i confused ,what is write in qualification degree.plz tell me soon .

  14. Hello sir,

    I completed my course on 2015 ,currently have one back to clear which I can write during month of december, results are expected around march 2016. So my question is ,

    1) What will be the qualifying degree year for me in gate application , 2015 or 2016 ??

    2) Is it enough for me to apply for gate with final year marklist S8 or S7, ( Gate brochure says so ) , rather than certificate from principal as my college is in another state ? .

    Thanx in advance

  15. Dear sir , i have complete my btech from 2011-2015. due to the university dispute , I haven’t received provisional degree certificate , nor original university marksheet.

    • Hello Akash,

      Engineering provisional certificate will most probably entitled with the name “Provisional certificate”.
      If the certificate which you have contain your basic personal detail, your educational institute detail, your course detail and your course completion detail in a single document then that would consider as provisional certificate. For complete information your must contact to your college administration.

      As per GATE 2016 organizing Institute :
      Candidate who have passed qualifying examination required for GATE 2016 in 2015 or earlier, have to submit any course completion certificate like degree certificate / provisional certificate for completing your GATE 2016 online application form.

    • Hello kashif,

      If you still have backlog(s) to clear then you need to fill passing year 2016.
      Standard duration for B E / B Tech Degree course is 4 years. So your duration would be 4 years.
      It depends how you and selector take your backlog.

  20. I am a B.tech student of 2011-2015. I completed in 2015. I still got 1 backlog in my 6th sem which I couldn’t clear in my 8th sem. I have to take the exam again May 2016. I wish to sit for GATE 2016 and I’m pretty sure to have a good rank.
    Now, we all know that the result of 8th sem comes out before the result of 6th sem. So the result of my backlog will come out probably 1 month after the current final year students 8 th sem result. So even if I clear GATE 2016, the result of my 6th sem will come out late. So what to do now?

  23. Hello Sir,

    I want to know that what does it exactly mean to have the GATE score valid for 3 years. More appropriately if a candidate appearing for GATE-2016 has few backlogs from previous yr (say his actual graduation yr was 2015) and he fails to clear them this time. Now can he use his GATE-2016 score card in 2017 (considering he has got a good score) if he clears all backlogs by then or does he gave to appear for GATE-2017 again.

    Overall does 3 yr validity of GATE score card is for graduated candidates only or also for those who happen to clear their backlogs in next yr or so.

    I know I have asked almost the same question again but I just want to be clear on this.

    Thank you.

        Yes you are 100% qualified for any Govt / PSU job. A candidate who completed his/her engineering degree / diploma with or without grace is also the same kind of engineer like others. So do not think anything wrong.

      As soon as you clear your backlog you are eligible for all Govt. and PSU jobs.
      There is no backlog criteria in any Govt. and PSU jobs but there is percentage criteria.
      So try to score good percentage don’t worry much about backlog.

      At the time of attending PSUs interview candidates need to submit their education qualification completion certificates, which backlog candidates can’t. So you will not face interview then.

  59. now i’m in b tech second year, all my relatives are forcing me to join in gate coaching center. i think there is still time for me to join. wat is ur suggestion regarding this ?

    • Hello kavya,

      Real preparation of GATE exam starts from second year of engineering. Because technical section asked in GATE exam are related to 2,3 & 4th year of engineering. So it is a good idea to start preparation of GATE from 2nd year of engineering. About joining coaching for GATE preparation or not. It is really hard to decide at once. I can give you some ideas regarding this.
      There would be nearly 3-4 subjects which you will learn during your 2nd year course of engineering. If you join coaching right now then they will learn you all subjects of gate in that particular year. Here if you can manage your coaching institute like if they can learn you GATE syllabus subjects as per your B Tech course then it would be better. Like 4 subjects of GATE syllabus are common with your engineering subjects of 2nd year then you need to prepare only those subjects in that particular year at your coaching, remaining subjects will be prepared by you in upcoming years. In this way you will not waste much time of your engineering and you also would be able to prepare for GATE without affecting your engineering course. In this way your GATE coaching would be of 3 years as per your engineering. This technique has many advantages.
      If you prepare all the GATE subjects during your 2nd year then it would be of not much use for GATE exam because you are going to attend GATE exam after 2 years.
      There is also an another way that is self study, if you can prepare self without coaching and can work hard till GATE exam then it would be a good idea also.
      So here I explained you some view of mine on your query.
