Some of the features are given below so that the candidates can learn how to use GATE 2021 virtual calculator:
Candidates who will be appearing for the entrance examination will be allowed to use the virtual calculator of GATE 2021 by the authorities at the exam centres.
The keys for simple operations will be available at the right hand side of GATE 2021 virtual calculator.
For scientific functions and operations, the keys will be placed at the left hand side of the virtual calculator.
Inverse functions will have separate keys so the candidates will not be required to click SHIFT or INV keys.
The inverse functions will be below the respective functions. For example, sininv will be available below sin on the calculator.
Candidates will be able to find the trigonometric functions grouped together.
The hyperbolic functions will also be grouped together in the virtual calculator of GATE 2021.
Candidates will be able to see two display boxes at the top of the virtual calculator. One of the boxes will indicate the sequence of the keys pressed by the candidate for reference.
The other box will show the actual entered values or obtained after the calculation is done.

Frequently Asked Question (FAQs) - GATE 2021 Virtual Calculator - How to Use it
Question: Can a student get a stand-alone calculator app for their mobile or computer?
No, the candidates will not be allowed to access a stand alone calculator since it will be available only in online mode. An internet connection will be required to load the calculator on your computer or mobile.
Question: How to represent Complex numbers?
Questions related to any area related to complex numbers such as power systems or any other area, can be solved using the virtual calculator of GATE 2021.
Question: How to do the calculations involving fractions?
The numerical based questions will have answers only in decimal form. Therefore, there will be no provision for fractions.
Question: How to convert polar to rectangular form and vice versa?
Since there are no separate keys for this function, the candidates will have to use the appropriate conversions using the calculator.
Question: How to solve quadratic, cubic or simultaneous equations?
These types of equations cannot be done in the virtual calculator since it is not programmed.
Question: How to carry out Matrix operations like inverse, transpose etc?
Candidates will have to manually do these operations since he virtual calculators are not programmed for it.
Question: How to access the values of constants like Planck’s constant, electron mass etc.?
Any constant needed for solving problems will be present in the question paper of GATE 2021. Wherever the constant is not mentioned, the candidates are required to know it beforehand.
Question: Will I be able to use the keyboard?
No. Candidates will not be allowed to use the keyboard during the examination.

Hope, it helps!
which subject Can I chose for gate exam after MSc. maths
So i assuming that you want to know the options after clearing GATE and having done and M.Sc in mathematics.
The various options you will have is that you can go for Ph.D in mathematics in IITs, IISERs, IISc, IMSc, HRI using GATE score.GATE score can also be used to get in government organizations like DRDO, ISRO for various scientist positions but the seats are very limited for Mathematics background people.
I hope this helps.
