GATE Qualifying Marks 2024 – Candidates who appeared for Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) exam have to secure minimum marks decided by GATE organizing Institute. As GATE exam is conducted every year and number of candidates appeared for GATE exam changes every year.

Depends upon various factors GATE exam qualifying cut-off marks also varies year by year. There are two main purpose of attending GATE exam:

  1. Getting admission into M. Tech. or P. HD. program and
  2. Getting a job into any PSU which accept GATE score card.

But for being eligible for these two, candidate first need to qualify GATE exam by securing minimum marks decided by GATE organizing Institute.

In order to get admission into top colleges of India just qualifying GATE exam will not assure your about getting admission into any college in India.
