I am pursuing M.Tech in Nanotechnology and my b.tech branch is Electronics and Communication engineering. If I want to write gate2021,then which branch should I consider as my gate subject?
You can do either of these two courses since you have done two different courses in different fields you can choose the course which you like the most of your gate exams. Try to choose electronics and communication since it is most preferred courses for gate and has good scope.
For more details regarding gate refer to the following link!!!
Thanks a lot!!!
i was qualified in gate 2020 ce paper with less marks i.e 330 gate score am i worthy for this job ??
see you did not mention in which company you have applied for job or whats is the criteria, however at this score have very less chances of getting psus calls based on gate score. since cutoff score varies year to year and depends on certain factors like number of participants, questions difficulty for students, seat vacancy etc. however you may apply for mtech courses also based on your gate score.
