My marks is 66 in gate 2020 .l belong to general category. My subject is CS/IT. I want my core subject as cs.what would be my rank and score. which iit I could get direct admission and where I need to face interview.plzzzz adv.me

Anantika Kushwaha 29th Feb, 2020
Hello Aspirant,

Without the official cut off being released, nothing can be said for sure. However on the basis of previous years you have a decent chance of getting into an IIT.

IITs holds an interview session for the candidates and only after qualifying it you can get admission in an IIT.

After getting Marks 29.67/100 in Gate 2020 in computer science which colleges can I get admission for Mtech ,do I have any chance in Nits.

Devraj choudhary Student Expert 29th Feb, 2020

Hii

Considering you as general candidate, since you didn't mentioned your category.  For your marks, your probable gate score is 365-380.

For this score you won't be able to get into any of NITs or IITs or any of good college like DTU, JU etc..

So, you may hope for next year. All the best

iF I GET 300-350 GATE SCORE IN CSE . WHICH ARE THE COLLEGES GOOD FOR ME AND AM I ELIGIBLE TO ANY OF THE PSU?? PLEASE SUGGEST

Anantika Kushwaha 29th Feb, 2020
Hello Aspirant,

Without the official cut off being released it is quite difficult to say. If you belong to the OBC category and you secure a rank under 500 then you can get a call from PSUs however for general category it is quite difficult to say.

For previous cut off's of PSU. Please refer- https://engineering.careers360.com/articles/what-are-gate-scores-for-psu-recruitment
