GATE Cutoff 2019
Manashjyoti, 27 Jul 2018, #GATE

GATE Cutoff 2019 - Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras will release qualifying cutoff of GATE 2019 alongside the result on March 16. GATE cutoff 2019 will be available in the form of marks and is the minimum score needed to qualify in the exam. Importantly, the score card of GATE will be issued to only those candidates who score equal to or more than the qualifying GATE 2019 cutoff. The qualifying cutoff of GATE 2019 will be subject-specific, meaning the cutoffs will be different for different subjects.

Candidates who meet the subject-wise GATE cutoff 2019 can apply for M.Tech admission at the IITs, NITs, and other engineering institutes. One important distinction that candidates must bear in mind is the qualifying cutoff of GATE that will be published by IIT Madras is not the same as the admission cutoff, which is generally determined by the institutes independently. Also, meeting the qualifying cutoff doesn’t guarantee admission to an institute, unless the candidate meets the admission cutoff determined for the applied course at the particular institute. To learn more about GATE 2019 cutoff, including cutoff trends across the years and factors that determine it, read on.

Differentiating GATE qualifying cutoff from admission cutoff

 

Students frequently confuse between GATE qualifying cutoff and cutoffs published by institutes based on GATE scores. But they are not one and the same thing. For example, GATE qualifying cutoff is one of the many eligibility criteria in that candidates who don’t qualify in the exam will be disqualified outright. But apart from meeting the qualifying cutoff, the GATE 2019 aspirants also have to meet the admission cutoff that the institute in question will prepare based on factors like applications received and availability of seats. The table below enunciates the differences in more detail:

GATE Cutoff 2019

 

Candidates will be able to lay their hands on the qualifying cutoff of GATE 2019 once results are declared. The qualifying GATE 2019 cutoff will be published in online mode and as mentioned above will be subject and category-specific. Until the GATE cutoff 2019 is released, the candidate may go through previous years’ cutoffs to get an idea about emerging trends. By going through the previous years cutoff, the candidates will also understand what score they need to qualify in their chosen subject. Additionally, the admission cutoff for GATE for popular courses like computer science at top institutes like the IITs have been given below for the benefit of the candidate. 

 

Previous Year GATE Cutoff Trends (2018, 2017, 2016, 2015)

 

The cutoff of the previous year GATE examinations are listed below. The candidates can refer to the previous cutoff trends to know the probable cutoff scores for the present session.
