Admission Offers will be uploaded by the participating Institutes in a common time window on COAP.

2. Is it necessary for a candidate to register at COAP?

Yes. Candidates who apply for admission into an M.Tech. Programme in any of the participating institutes have to register for COAP as they will receive admission offers via COAP only. 

To access and make a decision on the allotted seats made by participating Institute, each candidate should register and visit COAP. Without registering at COAP, the candidate will not be able to access the offers on COAP.

3. Can I apply for M.Tech. / Job to participating Institutes / PSUs through COAP?

While GATE is a prestigious exam and your IIT background is impressive, most MBA programs in India, including IIMs, primarily consider CAT, GMAT, or other management entrance exams for admissions.

GATE scores are typically used for admissions to engineering-based postgraduate programs or for recruitment in PSUs. There might be a few exceptions like NITIE Mumbai which accepts GATE scores for specific MBA programs, but these are limited.

To increase your chances of getting into a top MBA program, I recommend focusing on preparing for management entrance exams like CAT or GMAT.
