Is GATE compulsory/mandatory for the 2020 batch?

Students who have taken engineering or any other technical degree might soon have to write "Exit Exam". The All India Council for Technical Education passed a resolution making Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) mandatory calling it the "Exit Exam".

This exam is mandatory for engineering graduates in all technical institutions. Once the "Exit Exam" is made mandatory, candidates will have to take the "Exit Exam" in their final year.

Since every year lakhs of students graduate Engineering, the government is concerned about the quality of engineering students. Hence, the Government wants to test candidates “attainment levels” through "Exit Exam".

AICTE has clarified that it has not yet taken any decisions to make GATE mandatory from 2020. Hence the universities and colleges across the country have not been informed about it formally. And also there is no certainty about the year when GATE will become mandatory.

Why GATE?

The primary purpose of the GATE exam is to test the candidate's knowledge of his Under Graduate Engineering and Science Subjects. But what is the benefit for you to take the exam? There are a number of reasons for an engineer in today's world to take this exam and they are all listed below:

M.Tech/ M.Sc in World Class Universities

Aspirants who qualify in this test are eligible to get admission into the M.Tech and M.Sc courses in various institutes across India. Based on your score you will be called in for admission to top IITs and NITs. You will have the chance to do a specialization in your favorite field. Doing your master's in these top institutes ensures a hefty salary package.

Junior Research Fellowship

If you are looking to do a Junior Research Fellowship at prestigious Government Organizations like ISRO, BARC, CSIR Laboratories, etc, then GATE is a required qualification. Securing a fellowship at these government organizations will help you to a great extent in establishing your career in Research.

PSUs and Top Private Organizations

More than 30 of the Public Sector Undertakings like GAIL, ONGC, BPCL, IOCL, BARC, etc, consider the GATE score in their recruitment process. Also, the top private organizations like ITC, TATA Infotech, TCS, etc, also recruit some of the candidates with high GATE score.

Scholarship

GATE qualified candidates are eligible to apply for a scholarship of INR 12,000/- to INR 20,000/- per month. This would help a lot for candidates financially who are doing their PhDs and Junior Research Fellowship. 

To Achieve the Foreign Dream

If your goal is to study abroad, then the GATE exam is definitely the trump card. Some of the prominent Universities like RWTH Aachen, TU Munich, Nanyang Technological University (NTU, Singapore) accept GATE scores as an admission criterion.

Who is eligible for GATE 2020?

There is no age limit set by IIT Delhi for GATE 2020. Candidates should have a Bachelor’s degree in the related engineering and science stream; a Master’s Degree in any branch of Mathematics/Science/Statistics/Computer Applications or any equivalent degree.

GATE 2020 Syllabus

The syllabus consists of 24 subjects. However, candidates have to write the exam in only one discipline in which they have completed their qualifying exam. Candidates are advised to check the detailed GATE 2020 Syllabus for the related discipline in order to identify and focus on the important topics to be questioned in the examination.

In GATE 2020 General Aptitude section shall remain common irrespective of the discipline. General Aptitude holds 15% weightage. The GA section will have questions from verbal ability and numerical ability. Details regarding these sections are given below:

  • Sentence Completion
  • Verbal Analogies
  • Word Groups
  • Instructions
  • Critical Reasoning
  • Verbal Deduction

Numerical Ability: This section comprises of questions which test the basic mathematical skills of candidates. The following subtopics included in this section are

  • Numerical computation
  • Numerical Estimation
  • Numerical Reasoning
  • Data Interpretation
  • And the syllabus for the selected branch varies according to the subjects. 

How to Prepare for GATE Exam?

Preparation for any Exam is of two types. The preparation through GATE academies - which are spread throughout India, where you go to the centre that teaches you concepts, and then there is the self-preparation, where you try your best at beating the exam alone. People generally prefer coaching centres because those centres provide us with a fixed schedule and resources to prepare for the exam, and in turn, we have to pay them. But if we have the discipline and determination we could create our own schedule and secure our own resources without having to pay to any of the coaching centres. Follow the steps given below to know how.

Secure all the Resources that are Relevant for GATE

Your first step in preparation should be scavenging all the necessary resources of GATE, that include the standard reference books, practice papers, previous questions papers, mock tests etc. In this process, you should be familiarised with the syllabus and pattern of your course specific GATE exam. If you were able to secure all of these materials at the start you would know what all things you have to go through over the period of time you have allotted to yourself.

Create a Good Preparation Schedule

A good preparation schedule consists of an appropriate distribution of time for all the subjects, allocation of time for solving previous year question papers and mock test, and most importantly periodic revisions. If you are able to effectively incorporate all of these things into a schedule that is compatible with your daily routine, then you have crossed the halfway line to the road to cracking the GATE Exam.

But just constructing a good schedule for the sake of creating one is of no use. You have to commit yourself to that schedule until your goal is reached.

Evaluate and Improve Yourself

To know how far you have reached in preparation, and to see how much more preparation is still to be done, you have to be continuously evaluating yourself. It is better to join or enroll in a test series. This way you would get to know where you are strong at and which areas need further improvement.

Hello, Sateyndra,

NO, category certificate is required only for Indian nationals (appearing from exam centers within India), who wishes to avail a concession in application fee.

Answer By: GetmyuniEnterprise

Hello, Mohit, 

A candidate will most likely be allotted a center in the examination city of his/her first choice. Only in cases, where there are too many candidates opting for a certain city as their first choice, the other two choices become relevant. A candidate is required to fill his/her choices of cities to appear in the examination but should remember that because of operational constraints, the GATE committee reserves the right to add a new city or remove an existing one and allow a city that may not be any of the choices of a candidate.

Hey, Sahir,

No, You can't appear in any GATE paper. The candidate is expected to appear in a paper appropriate to the discipline of his/her qualifying degree. The candidate can also choose any other papers of GATE 2018, however, it is better to choose a paper in line with the eligibility criteria of the institutions/organizations in which he/she wishes to seek admission/ job.
