UG BSC student who still in third year can apply for chemistry in this exam ?

Yash Dev Student Expert 27th May, 2020
Hello student I'm sorry to inform you but if you're in final year of Bsc you're not eligible to appear in Gate entrance examination as eligibility criteria says -
Eligibility - candidates must be in passing year or Graduate of Bachelors degree or equivalent in engineering or Architecture or Masters degree in science/computer applications.
So you need to do Msc if you're willing to appear in Gate entrance examination.

For more updates refer to the link mentioned below - https://engineering.careers360.com/articles/gate-eligibility-criteria/amp

Feel free to comment if you have any doubt
Good luck

after b tech cse what is the best option m tech or mba?

Rehan Alam Student Expert 27th May, 2020

Dear Aspirant,

There is simple question -  Do you like coding? If the answer is no, then go for MBA straight without any second thought.

If the answer is yes, but you would like to explore management now then you can go for MBA or if your interest is in the coding, especially in the fields like data science, ai or machine learning then Mtech is a option for you.

Hope this helps. Thank you.

hi, I written gate paper in Engineering Science (paper code -xe). I have done my b.tech in mechanical engineering . which nits accept (xe gate paper) and which branch or department can i get. ???

NILUTPOL Student Expert 27th May, 2020
Hello,
Since you have written GATE paper in XE, you won't be eligible for jobs into the PSUs. XE paper is quite easy compared to other paper codes as you have many choices out of which only two has to be attempted. XE paper is specifically for studies into M.Tech and direct PHDs. So you can get into NITs with your GATE XE score.
As you have done bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering, you can get into NITs for mechanical engineering by giving XE paper. All NITs take admission through XE paper.

Engineering Sciences (XE)syllabus majorly divided into 3sections.The first section isGeneral Aptitude and the second section is Engineering Mathematics which is named as section A is compulsory for candidates.The third part comprises sectionsB to H andcandidates have to choose any two sectionsto appear for the exam.
Hope it helps
