      GATE & IES are totally different examinations.
      Yes if you prepare for GATE you will get advantage in IES preparation. But there is no any surety that those who score well in GATE also score well in IES.
      No. Both exam have separate exam and exam structure. You have to prepare for both exams separately if you want to clear both.
      You must check below post.
