    • Hello Dhanunjay,

      As per GATE 2016 office Information :
      You can apply for any of the the two GATE papers (a) Electrical Engineering & (2) Computer Science.

      What GATE 2016 office says :If a candidate is pursuing any higher degree or already obtained a degree higher than that mentioned in the above table, then the candidate can select the relevant minimum required qualifying degree while filling the application form.
      Click here : http://www.gate.iisc.ernet.in/?page_id=130

      But in case of PSUs, As you said you want to use this score for selecting in PSUs then :
      For any PSU application through GATE there are two kind of restriction for a candidate.
      First in which branch candidate have done B Tech degree.
      Second in which GATE paper he/she appeared.

      Point to be noted here is they need a candidate with both of these combine correctly.
      When you will go through any notification of any PSU which recruit through GATE then you will find that they mention GATE paper for particular post as well as your B Tech degree for that particular post.

    • Hello nagraj,

      Both scores are valid its depends upon you which one you want to use.
      If you want to use GATE 2016 score to get admission in any Institute only then your M Tech course will again start from 1st year because you are using GATE 2016 score now.

  35. Sir the 2 nd option in certificate from principal is only for those who have completed the course or for those also who are in final year with backlog

    • Hello Amrutha,

      1st option is only for those candidates who are in final year.
      2nd option is for those candidates who are in final year as well as have backlog from earlier semester/year.
      So if you have backlog then only you need to select 2nd option otherwise not.

  77. sir,
    i cant upload the signature in the given pixel resolution
    its wrong.

  78. What does year of qualifying degree mean? Please do make it clear.

    1) Does it mean the year in which you completed your b.tech course at your college?

    OR

    2) Does it mean the year in which you pass the all the semester exams and standing backlogs?

    I completed course at college in 2012. Is my year of qualifying degree in 2012? or the year in which I will clear my standing backlogs?

    Am I a graduate? Because if you put NO in “have you graduated?” it says year should not be less than 2015 or more than 2016.

    If I put YES then there is no problem.

    Please give me a reply because the helpdesk won’t respond to my emails or respond to phone calls and I am terribly confused.

    • Hello Aswin,

    • Hello Priya,

      There are two main uses of qualifying GATE exam :
      1. Getting job in PSUs
      2. Getting admission for Higher education

      For 1st you have to score high for 2nd if you just qualify you may get admission in a good college. If you want to do M tech and don’t want to waste one year for preparation for next year GATE. Also you will get scholarship if you get admission in any college using GATE score.
