6 Reasons Why You Should Appear For GATE?

2. After publication of GATE results, students must apply to individual Institutes to get their application forms.

    one correction in the information above is that, every year the cut-off %ile of GATE varies.So, it is not necessary tht those candidates above 70%ile will get score card. Only those candidates will get the score cards which are above the cut-off decided by the GATE committee. IN GATE-09 cut-off for the ECE was abt 85%ile i.e. 340 out of 1000, and about 26 out of 100. Remember, this figure changes every year for any stream.
