  • Candidates are expected to appear in the paper appropriate to the discipline of their qualifying degree. However the candidate is free to choose any paper according to his/her admission plan.

  • Candidates studying in the fourth year of Five Year Integrated M.Tech/ Dual Degree programmes are treated at par with those in the final year of Four Year B.E./ B.Tech programme and are expected to appear in the paper appropriate to the discipline of their qualifying degree.

  • The GATE paper will be of only multiple choices. There will be 'negative marking' for each wrong answer. The deduction will be one-third of the marks allotted.

  • At present, students in the Integrated Master's Degree and Dual Degree programmes in Engineering / Technology are eligible to appear in GATE in order to qualify for the postgraduate scholarship in their own institutions only. They are not eligible for admission to a fresh M.E./ M.Tech. programme.
