what is rank required in gate to get into YMCA, Faridabad
Dear Applicant although the cut off required to make your chances into any good college totally depends on the number of applicants and level of difficulty of the exam. But based on past records for streams like IT, ECE you need to score around 350 if you are an open category student to get admission into YMCA. The cut off of other categories is somewhat lower. For other courses you can approximate this score. If your rank is within 30k then chances are quite good.
Im artificial intelligence and data science student in btech.can i write gate exam for cs?
Yes, you can give the GATE CS paper, but writing the paper is not same as being eligible for admission in a particular institute.
Note this disclaimer on the GATE website
GATE is NOT an admission ensuring examination. Qualifying in GATE examination does NOT guarantee admission / scholarship. Admission to any institute is fully dependent on the admitting institute's criteria for educational qualification. Similarly, GATE qualification does not assure a Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) job, as it depends on the recruitment procedure of the concerned PSU. GATE committee is NOT liable for any legal obligations related to admission / job.
You will have to read the Masters Admission information brochure of any institutes you are inerested in, to figure out whether your UG degree is acceptable, what percentage cutoff is there and so on.
