i scored 6.4 cgpa of civil engineering stream as general pwd .Am i elegible for any PSU if i get good score in gate?


Hello Sir

I am not sure about the PWD Cutoffs but if you consider General then it depends upon your UG University.

The conversion of cgpa to percentage varies from Institute to institute. For example, I completed my B.Tech form VIT Vellore After graduating from there, I too had this issue of conversion of cgpa to percentage. Our Institute had the following formula for the conversion :

Percentage = (CGPA -0.5)*10

In IIT's ir is CGPA*10= Percentage.

But still most of the PSU's demands 65%.


Hey I am studying in AKG Gaziabad Ihave electronic branch 4th year student what to do job or gate

Aman Bhardwaj 16th Sep, 2019

This should totally depend on your choice and suitably.If you think going for job is better option then you should definitely go for job.But if you are ready to invest 4-6 daily for your preparation for GATE then you can start to prepare because gate is one of the most toughest exams in india.Yiu should consider lot of factors think about it and then decide.For instance, if you family background requires you to get a job then you must think about whether you can crack gate in first or second attempt or not and if there is no financial burden for you in near future then you can prepare for GATE.

Good Luck
