Questions related to GATE
Im Bsc IT student, i.e. I am having 3 year degree course. So, If Im qualified in GATE or have maintained required GATE score for IIT. Am I eligible for M tech Admission in IIT? Or GATE qualified Bsc students are only eligible for PSUs?
Hope you are doing great,
As you want to know the eligibility criteria for the PSU. You cannot get a job in PSU just by qualifying GATE. You need to clear the cut off set up by the PSU to receive an interview call. You have to do well in the interview.
For information about the PSU recruitment through GATE:
For the eligibility criteria for admission in MTech from IIT. A master's degree in the relevant subject or a bachelor's degree in engineering or science (4 year program) or a master's degree in sciences or in an allied field of HSS with marks/CPI not below the specified minimum. The candidate either must have a valid GATE score or must have qualified JRF/NET.
For the eligibility criteria of Mtech from IIT:
I hope this will help you,
Best of Luck :)
can i give gate exam after persuing fire and safety from cusat
candidate who is currently studying in the 3rd or higher years of any undergraduate degree program . A candidate who has already completed any government approved degree program in Engineering / Technology / Architecture / Science / Commerce / Arts is eligible for appearing in the GATE 2022 exam.
So if you belong to these above eligibility criteria then for sure you can attempt Gate exam.

what gate score is required for bit pilani computer science
Dear candidate based on the past few years cut-off trends, if you make assumptions regarding the possible score to get admission into BITS Pilani campus, into Computer Science Engineering stream, you need around 350-380 score out of 1000. Though the Analysis is an assumption as the cut off depends on number of applicants and the difficulty level of the exam.
However you have another option to seat in the entrace conducted by BITS, known as BITSAT. By Qualifying it you have better possibilities,
