    • Hello Karthick,

      Cut-off for any PSU depends upon many factors like difficulty level of GATE paper, no of vacancies notified by each and all PSUs etc. So it is really hard to calculate how much marks would be safe.
      You may check previous years cut-offs of PSUs here :

    • Hello Bhavin,

      1) How many candidates depends upon jobs requirement in PSUs for the year 2016 for a particular stream. For this you need to check all PSUs notification which are recruiting through GATE 2016 about how many seats they are notifying for IN stream for this year :
      2) Cut off depends upon many factors like number of candidates appear in GATE exam, difficulty level of GATE paper, number of seats in each PSUs. You can get some idea from previous years cut-offs but you can’t get some certain cut-offs. I hope you are understanding.
      PSUs Cut-off marks :

  16. I am a 3rd year student of Electronics and communication engineering. I want to know if I can apply for GATE 2016. Please respond.

  17. Does the Value of GATE score reduces depending upon the number of attempts?
    As if i had appeared for GATE15 but didnt get a good if i am going to appear for GATE16..then if i get a good rank does the importance decrease?
    As if a candidate is giving gate16 for the first time and i am giving for the second time and we both are getting the same rank…and we both apply for the same course.. then is there any possibility that he gets more priority then me because he is a freasher and i am applying for second time?
    please reply as soon as possible
