Questions related to GATE

Have a question related to GATE ?

In most cases, leaving a 5-year integrated M.Tech program after the B.Tech portion (usually after 4 years) to pursue an M.Tech elsewhere through GATE is not possible.

Integrated programs are designed as a complete package, with the B.Tech portion leading seamlessly into the M.Tech specialization. Exiting after the B.Tech portion might disrupt the curriculum and might not grant you a standalone B.Tech degree.

Universities often have regulations that don't allow students to exit integrated programs midway.


Carefully review the regulations or brochures related to the 5-year integrated M.Tech program at NIT Patna. Look for sections on program structure, exit options, or award of degrees. Reach out to the admissions office or program coordinator at NIT Patna. They can give you the most accurate information about leaving the program after the B.Tech portion.

Yes, you can definitely prepare for the GATE exam in Civil Engineering even though you are a Biotechnology graduate. There are no restrictions on educational background for appearing in the GATE exam, you can choose any stream you're interested in. However, it will be a challenging path  because the GATE Civil Engineering syllabus covers subjects very different from Biotechnology.

The GATE Civil Engineering syllabus includes subjects like Engineering Mechanics, Strength of Materials, Structural Analysis, Geotechnical Engineering , which you likely haven't studied in detail during your Biotechnology degree.

You need to dedicate significant time and effort to grasp these new concepts and practice solving related problems.

Utilize resources like standard Civil Engineering textbooks, online courses, or coaching institutes to build a strong foundation in these core subjects. Practice solving problems from previous years' GATE Civil Engineering exams to get familiar with the question format and difficulty level.

Create a study schedule that allocates sufficient time for understanding new concepts, practicing problems, and revising.

I hope it helps!

Yes, clearing the GATE SC/ST cutoff with a valid scorecard makes you eligible for certain benefits, though it might differ slightly from the General category.

You are eligible for admission to M.Tech programs offered by many Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs), and other Centrally Funded Technical Institutes (CFTIs) through the GATE score. However, some institutes might have additional cutoffs or weightages specifically for SC/ST candidates within their allotted seats.

A few universities might consider GATE scores for M.Sc. programs in science streams as well. Check with the specific universities you are interested in.

I hope it helps!
