GATE is an all-India examination conducted jointly by IIT’s & IISc in eight zones across the country. The score is used for admissions to various post-graduate programs in Indian higher education institutes e.g. Master of Engineering, Master of Technology, and Doctor of Philosophy. Such candidates also get financial assistance provided by MHRD and other government agencies. GATE scores are also being used by several Indian public sector undertakings i.e., government-owned companies for recruiting graduate engineers in entry-level positions.
