It is a national level entrance exam conducted to offer admission into M.Tech and M.Sc programmes in EngineeringTechnology and Architecture fields. Also, candidates can get admission into various branches of PhD through this exam.

Admission will be provided to the qualified candidates in various NITsIITsGFTIsIISc and other renowned institutions. Using the GATE scores, candidates will also get recruitment in various PSUs for a junior engineer. GATE 2020 Mock Test has been released. In this article, we have provided complete details related to GATE 2020.

As per the usual schedule, the exam will be conducted in February first week and the admit cards will be released in January. The GATE 2019 which was conducted by IIT Madras was conducted on February 2, 3, 9 and 10, 2019. The result will is scheduled to be announced by March 2020.

GATE 2020 New Changes Introduced

The new changes introduced for GATE 2020 is discussed below:

  • A candidate who registered after May 31, 2013, for certification equivalent to B.E./B.Tech/B. Arch from any of the professional societies (IE, ICE, IETE, AeSI, IIChemE, IIM, IIE, etc) but meets other eligibility criteria, are also eligible to apply for GATE 2020. However, as the matter is subjudice, the eligibility of such candidates is subjected to further orders of the court.
  • The entrance test of GATE 2020 will be organized for 25 papers. A new paper of Bio-medical Engineering (BM) has been added in the syllabus.
  • IIT Delhi will conduct the GATE 2020.

The information in this brochure is mainly categorized into Pre-Examination (Eligibility, Application Submission, Examination Centres, etc.), Examination (Pattern, Marks/Score, etc.) and Post-Examination (Answers, Contests, Results, Scorecard, etc.) sections.

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is basically an examination on the comprehensive understanding of the candidates in various undergraduate subjects in Engineering/Technology/Architecture and post-graduate level subjects in Science. GATE 2019 will be conducted for 23 subjects (also referred to as “papers”) and it would be distributed over February 2,3 and February 9, 10, 2019 (9 am to 12 pm and 2 pm to 5 pm). The GATE examination centres are spread in different cities across India, as well as, at six cities abroad. It would purely be a Computer Based Test (CBT).

The GATE score would reflect the relative performance level of the candidate in a particular subject, which is quantified based on the several years of examination data. Note that the GATE 2019 score is valid for THREE YEARS from the date of announcement of the results.

Scholarship/Assistantship for Post-graduate Programs

To avail the financial assistance (scholarship/assistantship), the candidate must first secure the admission to a program in one of the central government supported institutes, by a procedure that could vary from institute to institute. Depending upon the norms adopted by a specific institute or department of the institute, a candidate may be admitted directly into a course based on his/her performance in GATE only; or based on his/her performance in GATE and an admission test/interview conducted by the department to which he/she has applied and/or the candidate’s academic record. In the test/interview-based selection procedure, as per the MHRD guidelines, a minimum of 70% weightage will be given to the performance in GATE and the remaining will be given to the candidate’s performance in test/interview and/or academic record. However, the admitting institutes could prescribe a minimum passing marks in the test/interview.

Candidates are advised to seek the complete details of the admission procedures and the availability of MHRD scholarship/assistantship from the corresponding admitting institutions. The criteria for postgraduate admission with scholarship/assistantship could be different for different institutions. The management of the post-graduate scholarship/assistantship is also the responsibility of the admitting institution. Similarly, reservation of the seats for different categories will be as per the policies and norms of the admitting institution and the Government of India rules.

The admitting institute may also specify the number of candidates who will be provided financial assistance (scholarship) if admission is secured. Qualification in GATE is also a minimum requirement to apply for various fellowships awarded by many Government organizations.

Types of Questions

GATE 2019 Exam consists of Multiple Choice Questions and Numerical Type Questions in all papers & sections. Multiple Choice Questions will contain 4 options, of which only one is correct. For Numerical Type Questions a numerical value as the answer should be entered using mouse and virtual keyboard on the monitor. The following are type of Questions:

a. Recall: These are based on facts, principles, formulae or laws of the discipline. The candidate is expected to be able to obtain the answer either from his/her memory directly or at most from a one-line computation.

b. Comprehension: These questions will test the candidate's understanding of the basics of his/her field, by requiring him/her to draw simple conclusions from fundamental ideas.

c. Application: In these questions, the candidate is expected to apply his/her knowledge either through computation or by logical reasoning.

d. Analysis and Synthesis: These can be linked questions, where the answer to the first question of the pair is required in order to answer its successor. Or these can be common data questions, in which two questions share the same data but can be solved independently of one another.

e. Common Data Questions: Multiple questions may be linked to a common data problem, passage and the like. Two or three questions can be formed from the given common data problem. Each question is independent and its solution obtainable from the above problem data/passage directly. (Answer of the previous question is not required to solve the next question). Each question under this group will carry two marks.

f. Linked Answer Questions: These questions are of problem solving type. A problem statement is followed by two questions based on the problem statement. The two questions are designed such that the solution to the second question depends upon the answer to the first one. In other words, the first answer is an intermediate step in working out the second answer. Each question in such linked answer questions will carry two marks.

How to prepare for GATE 2019?

GATE examination consists only of multiple and numerical answer type questions, hence only correct answer fetches marks.

Practice previous year question papers and analyze the weak topics and concentrate more on those topics. Candidates must try to solve the papers in a given time limit to obtain an idea as to how many questions are solved within the allotted time.

Impart equal emphasis on both theory and numerical problems. 

Browse through the GATE syllabus for topics allotted more weightage and prepare them.

Group Study is an effective way to brush up knowledge about technical topics with fellow partners and also helps to explore new techniques and methods to better understand the topics.

Do not make wild guess as there is negative marking associated with the questions. 

Prepare the list of important definitions, equations, derivations, theorems, laws in every subject.

Pay more attention while attempting linked and common data questions.
