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.

      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.

      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.
