iam general oc how many marks I has to score in gate to get m tech seat in IIT madras

Aman Raj Student Expert 23rd Jan, 2020

Hello Tarun

Getting a seat for Mtech is totally dependent on the branch or stream you are applying. Without knowing your Branch how can i predict the rank.

But still in General if you are in (Civil, Mech or EE) then you will have to get under 400-500(Rank) to get a IITM seat.

i have a positive gate score but I have not received a gate score card since i did not reach the cutoff. Will I be eligible to take admission in ME 2020 and gate exam appeared is in year 2018

Sharon Rose Student Expert 23rd Jan, 2020
Hello,
Even though GATE score is valid for 3 years you need to qualify GATE in order to get admission in M.tech/PhD in any college.Merely just scoring a positive mark will not fetch you a seat in any college.So you cannot get admission through your 2018 GATE score.You are advised to appear for GATE in 2021 and qualify to get admission in post graduation.

If we have appeared the Gate exam in 2018, then can we take admission in 2020??

Dhruv Anurag 23rd Jan, 2020

Gretings aspirant,

As per the gidelines, GATE score is valid for 3 years for admission in M.Tech course or for PSU recruitments in various institutes and companies respectively. At the moment, you are very much eligible to seek admission in M.Tech with your 2018 GATE score in 2020 provided that you haven't taken admission before in M.Tech with 2018 GATE score or have joined in any PSU and have cleared the required cut-off for admission. Good luck.

Can we use previousn year gate rank to join in mtech these year

Ina 23rd Jan, 2020
Hello,
Usually GATE scores are valid for two years, i.e., if you have given the GATE exam in 2019 then until 2020 your rank and scores are considerable. But in 2021 the same scores will be treated as invalid as per rule. So check once the e-broucher and regulations of GATE exam before you proceed.

Wish you best of luck.
