Questions related to GATE
How is ews certificate helpful in gate counselling?
GATE 2021 would be the first of the GATE exam with seats reserved for EWS (Economical Weaker Section) aspirants.
So EWS certificate would ensure your reservation for these seats.
If not provided when asked then you will be considered as a general Candidate.
I hope this helps.
after engineering which exam is best upsc or gate
Firstly you need to understand the definition of both exam and understand that both exams are quite different as well as have different purposes.
UPSC examination is a nationwide competitive examination in India conducted by the Union Public Service Commission for recruitment to various Civil Services of the Government of India, including the Indian Administrative Service, Indian Foreign Service, and Indian Police Service
Where as GATE exam (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) is a computer test conducted at the national level in India. Qualifying in the GATE exam is a mandatory requirement for the engineering graduates who are seeking admissions to the Postgraduate Programs like Master's and Doctoral with the Ministry of Education (MoE) and other Government Scholarships / Assistantships that are subject to the admission criterias of the institutes.
So you can summarise as that UPSC gets you a govt. job where as GATE gets you a degree.
Personally I would suggest that UPSC is a better examination which brings respect as well as other benifts of govt. Job.
Both exams are difficult to clear but UPSC is harder.
I hope this helps.
Hello, there was a signature defect in my gate 2021 application. i rectified it and since last 25 days it is showing "you had taken action against this defect". Today i got another email saying please correct the defect asap. Could anyone tell me if i should re-submit the rectification or wait?
Sometimes it happens that when you are submitting the rectified form or any form because of the problem of the internet or server it might happen to shows you that form is submitted correctly but not on the administration side and as you have got officially mail from the administration so once again you should try to do the rectification
If on opening the GOAPS website and logging in it again shows same then leave it and if there is an option present to correct you should take the action. For mor details and schedule refer our website from the link
what is gate examination of 2020
Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is a national examination conducted jointly by Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore and seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) at Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee .
Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is basically a national examination on the comprehensive understanding of the candidates in various undergraduate subjects in Engineering / Technology / Architecture and post-graduate level subjects in Arts, Commerce and Science
Qualifying in GATE is a mandatory requirement for seeking admission and financial assistance to Postgraduate Programs (Master's and Doctoral) with Ministry of Education (MoE) and other Government Scholarships ,subject to the admission criteria of the admitting institute.
The GATE score is also used by some Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) for their recruitment and by several other universities in India and abroad for admissions.GATE score will remain valid for THREE YEARS from the date of announcement of results.
If I talk about gate 2020 then the dates for exams has passed and results are announced. The exams are mostly conducted in month of February.
I have secured 522 rank in APPGCET exam. I have done my bachelors in civil engineering from KLU. can I get admission into Andhra university? what other colleges do you think Ill get with this rank. I have not qualified for gate exam. can I apply this score to other private colleges in hyderabad
Firstly congratulations on scoring such a good rank!
Yes you do hold a chance to get into Andhra University, as per the rank you have scored. But it depends upon your choice of branch and the category you fall in, also if the cutoff is bit relaxed. As per your rank you might grab a chance to enrol yourself in Mechanical Engg. or Computer Science or IT, owing to cutoff of previous year.
However, there are other options for you as well-:
1) Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad
2) Vishnu Institute of Technology, Bhimavaram
3) College of Engineering, Sri Venkateshwara University, Tirupati
4) Gayatri Vidya Parishad College of Engineering, Vishakhapatnam
All the above mentioned Colleges have an average package of placement of 3.5-4.5LPA and full course fees ranges from 60k-1.38L
Hope you find this helpful.
All the Best!
