      Nowadays there are two main options after GATE :
      (1) Jobs through GATE score
      (2) Higher education through GATE score

      Section in b/w Job and Higher education depends upon many factors like your family condition, your interest etc.
      So get good score in GATE then discuss with some people who are doing job after clearing GATE and also with people who are doing Masters or P HD course after claring GATE exam.
      Do some discuss with your family too what they want you to do bcz they are also part of your preparation.
      Most of the candidates choose Jobs in PSUs bcz now a days competition is high so no one wants to lose a single change to get a good job.
      Rest final decision depends upon you.

  21. what r the books to be referred to gate examination?i am belong to shivaji university.is the local publication books are satisfy the needs?

    • Hello Bosu,

      GATE 2016 reference books : http://www.gate2016.info/gate-2016-books/
      There is no problem with Local books but these books must be error free and must contain good enough knowledge for a particular subject.
      If you find a question in question paper you answer correctly as per your local book but that answer differ in standard books.
      Your answer would be wrong because GATE office always follow standard books.
      So it is always advisable that always read standard books.
      You may follow Local books too for understanding any topic but final reference must be from standard books.
      I hope you understand my point.

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