My Btech-CSE completed with 5.89 CGPA in 2019. If I will have a valid GATE Score then Can I get Admission for MTech in any IITs?

You need at least 55% or 6.5 CGPA in bachelor's degree to comes under elligibility criteria for Mtech from IITs..You have low cgpa in Btech ,so you seems to have less chance of getting seat in IITs for Mtech even if you have valid score in GATE..

Ask if any query.

Vemireddy Rushitha Student Expert 22nd Oct, 2019

Hello aspirant,

You are eligible to get a job in PSU if you crack the GATE exam, it does not matter what degree you choose, what matters here is your GATE marks. But as you are an automobile student, it will be probably a little bit difficult for you to prepare for mechanical exams as your syllabus will differ.

All the best!
