About GATE

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all India examination conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven IITs (IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, IIT Guwahati, IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Madras and IIT Roorkee). It primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in Engineering and Technology.

Over the last few years, the number of GATE aspirants has been increasing at a rapid pace. In the last 5 years, it has more than quadrupled from 1.8 lakh applicants in 2008 to 7.7 lakh applicants in 2012 and 12 lakh applicants in 2013. This increase is primarily due to the multiple benefits GATE offers in addition to a chance to pursue higher education. With the introduction of Aptitude section from 2010, focused preparation for GATE comes in handy for other PSU exams like CIL, SAIL, GAIL etc and also campus recruitment interviews. GATE scores are considered as the merit criterion by organizations such as Power grid, BHEL, IOCL and NTPC, for recruitment to the posts of Executive Trainees and Management Trainees. Also, GATE score is considered by premier institutions like CSIR and BARC to select students with a penchant towards research.


Paper Pattern

GATE 2013 was a 3 hour exam with 65 questions (30 one-mark questions and 35 two-mark questions) summing up to 100 marks with questions from core subjects, engineering math and general aptitude. Questions from the core engineering subjects far outweigh the other 2 areas with 70% weight age. The off-line exams had only multiple choice type questions. But, online mode exams had both numerical answer questions and multiple choice questions.

Questions in GATE exam test the applicants' grip on basic concepts and the ability to apply them in problems. As per the IIT notification, broadly, they can be categorized in to four types – recall, comprehension, application and Analysis & Synthesis. Most of the recall based questions will be in the one mark category. Thorough knowledge of fundamentals and extensive practice are the only two factors that can bring success in GATE. candidates should plan their preparation strategically, by attempting previous papers and analyzing the weight ages for various topics. Also, aspirants should spend time in solving old GATE papers and also analyze the relative weight ages for various topics across the years. This will help in planning the preparation optimally.
