Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all India examination. Which is conducted every year by Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs at Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee). This exam is conducted for undergraduate students of engineering and science of various fields.

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) examination is conducted every year. This exam is mainly for getting admission into higher all India ranking colleges of engineering and technology like IISc, IITs, NITs. 

Must check : GATE Previous Year Papers

Nearly 10 lakh candidates who filled the application form of GATE. Most probably almost same number of candidates will fill the form for this year. For more details about GATE year wise candidate & paper analysis please follow below link.

Must check : GATE yearwise candidate & paper analysis

So this exam is one of the most reputed and competitive examination. Every year lakhs of candidates write this exam but very few 1 out of 600 make it to get admission into IISc or any one of seven IITs. Books that candidates read at their undergraduate level are of the great importance for getting good rank in GATE exam because GATE syllabus is based on syllabus of B. E. or B. Tech. at their undergraduate level.

    • Hello priyanka,

      Thanks for appreciating our work.
      It is really hard to cover compete GATE syllabus in a single book. If it possible everyone will buy that book and qualify GATE, while only 15%(nearly) candidates qualify GATE every year.
      You can start your GATE 2017 exam preparation from previous years papers. Many books are there which provide last 20-30 years subject wise even topics wise solved papers.
      You just need to open a topic and check previous years papers & prepare according to that.

    • hello Vivek,

      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.
      Generally they mention in column that these branches are not included in this branch.
      For more details please refer various PSUs notification. You can check here all PSUs details which are recruiting through GATE 20916.

    • Hello Janhavi,

      There are very less PSUs which will recruit for graduation in Chemistry. One of them is ONGC.
      But if you any how get good marks in GATE and get a job in s PSU then nothing would be better than this surely competition would be high bcz engineering graduates will also eligible with you many times.
      First do some research in which PSUs post graduation in Chemistry are allowed then make some decision.
