Authorities Empowered to Issue Certificates (SC/ST)
In order to avail concession under the PWD category, the candidates should attach a recently obtained proper PWD certificate, which is to be submitted to the admitting institution at the time of admission. The onus of verifying PWD certificate lies with the admitting institute. The GATE committee will not be responsible for any incorrect declaration of the PWD status of candidates.
Certificate from Principal
Candidates who mention that they are yet to complete their course, will receive a "Certificate from Principal". Please download the form fromhttp://gate.iitk.ac.in/GATE2015/docs/CertificateFromPrincipal.pdf, obtain the signature and seal of the Principle/HOD on this and then upload it.
Degrees for being eligible for GATE are :
In GATE, examination of some papers is being held in multi-sessions. Hence, for these papers, a suitable normalization is applied to take into account any variation in the difficulty levels of the question papers across different sessions. The normalization is done based on the fundamental assumption that "in all multi-session GATE papers, the distribution of abilities of candidates is the same across all the sessions". This assumption is justified since the number of candidates appearing in multi-session papers in GATE is large and the procedure of allocation of session to candidates is random. Further it is also ensured that for the same multi-session paper, the number of candidates allotted in each session is of the same order of magnitude.
Based on the above, and considering various normalization methods, the committee arrived at the following formula for calculating the normalized marks, multi-session papers.
After the evaluation of the answers, normalized marks based on the above formula will be calculated corresponding to the raw marks obtained by a candidate and the GATE 2017 Score will be calculated based on the normalized marks. For all other papers, actual marks obtained will be used for calculating the GATE 2017 Score.
After the evaluation of the answers, normalized marks based on the above formula will be calculated corresponding to the raw marks obtained by a candidate for CE, CS, EC, EE and ME papers and the GATE 2017 Score will be calculated based on the normalized marks.
Ans-Pattern of Question Papers
In all the papers, there will be a total of 65 questions carrying 100 marks, out of which 10 questions carrying a total of 15 marks are in General Aptitude (GA).
In the papers bearing the codes AE, AG, BT, CE, CH, CS, EC, EE, IN, ME, MN, MT, PE, PI, TF and XE, the Engineering Mathematics will carry around 15% of the total marks, the General Aptitude section will carry 15% of the total marks and the remaining 70% of the total marks is devoted to the subject of the paper.
In the papers bearing the codes AR, CY, EY, GG, MA, PH and XL, the General Aptitude section will carry 15% of the total marks and the remaining 85% of the total marks is devoted to the subject of the paper.
Ans-GATE 2017 would contain questions of two different types in various papers:
Ans-For a wrong answer chosen for the multiple choice questions, there would be negative marking. For 1 - mark multiple choice questions, 1/3mark will be deducted for a wrong answer. Likewise, for 2 - mark multiple choice questions, 2/3 mark will be deducted for a wrong answer. However, there is no negative marking for a wrong answer in numerical answer type questions.
Ans-Yes, In all papers, GA questions carry a total of 15 marks. The GA section includes 5 questions carrying 1 mark each (sub-total 5 marks) and 5 questions carrying 2 marks each (sub-total 10 marks).
M.Tech stands for Masters in Technology. The course is a two-year program which offers specialization in the particular area of Engineering.
M.Tech Specialization in popular streams of engineering are as follows:
Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering
Computer Science and Engineering & Information Technology
M.Tech from a top-class institute with the best faculty and infrastructure helps a student to work on the best research technologies in India
Public Sector Companies and Private sector companies like Tata Steel, Tata Motors, L&T, Analog Devices, ST Micro, Intel, Adobe, Cisco, Oracle, Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and Facebook etc. are recruiting M.Tech students specifically for core roles. The average package offered is 15 - 18 Lacs per annum.
A student has to perform well in GATE and interview process to qualify for M.Tech admission in IISC/IIT/NIT and many other prestigious institutes. A student must also be careful in selecting the right specialization for pursuing M.Tech.
During job, a student will be learning how to apply theoretical knowledge into practical, real world problems, but to get the more detailed knowledge of designing/research aspect of your current work, one should go for the masters. Additionally, it's considered difficult to prepare for GATE exam while working. However, with a validity of 3 years for GATE Score, a student can apply for M.Tech admission even after working for a couple of years.
The number of seats for M.Tech&Phd at IITs was recently increased from 1400 to 10,000.
Stipend, in form of Half-Time Teaching Assistantship (HTTA), at the rate of Rs.12,400/- p.m. (tenable for a maximum period of 24 months) will be awarded to Indian nationals doing the M.Tech. Programmes, subject to Institute rules.
Seats are reserved for Indian Nationals under the categories, SC/ ST/ OBC (Non-creamy layer) and PwD (Persons with Disability) according to the Government of India rules. The reservations are as follows: (General - 50.5%, OBC - 27%, SC- 15%, ST- 7.5%)
Admissions into M. tech Programs is based on GATE Score and interviews/written test. Most of the IIT's give 70% weightage to the GATE score and 30% weightage to the written test and interview marks. The fixing of cut-off score for candidates in different categories shall be as per the norms of the Institute.
There are some interdisciplinary departments in IITs which permit the students of different streams in same course. For e.g. - Nuclear Engineering Programme at IIT Kanpur allows students from any branch of engineering and Master's degree in Physics or Mathematics.
Other than IITs, GATE is valid for NITs and other reputed colleges and universities. But, IIT's and some NIT's are much better than any other colleges because they provide an excellent infrastructure, faculty, lab facilities and a conducive ambiance.
PSUs or public sector undertakings are government organizations for public welfare. There are around 250+ PSUs in India.
Currently, more than 30+ PSUs are accepting GATE Score for recruitment like HPCL, BPCL, IOCL, NHPC, NTPC, Power Grid, CONCOR, GAIL, DDA, BHEL, BEL, TCIL, NALCO, MECL, MECON etc.
The PSUs will release their notification post which applicants have to apply with necessary credentials and GATE Score. After application process is over, the PSUs will release the list of candidates shortlisted for further process (interviews and/or tests) and their dates of further process. After the selection process is over, the PSUs release job offers for selected candidates..
PSU's offer multiple entry level profiles like Management Trainee, Executive Trainees, Graduate Engineer Trainees, Assistant executive engineer, Junior Engineer Etc.
The pay package offered by PSUs is in the range of 12 - 15 lakh p.a.
Interested applicants need to visit the respective website of PSUs for further information on selection process. Please keep visiting our website for further information on PSU recruitment notifications and process.
