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:
