Iam qualified in gate 2019, can i apply next year for ONGC

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 22nd Nov, 2019


No you can't do that. You gave GATE exam this year then you can use that mark to get an admission in this year only. You can't use this year marks or rank to get an admission for coming year. This is strictly prohibited by the board. This will be unfair for other candidates as the pattern and level of difficulty and number of candidates appearing changes every year.

This is simple concept that the mark of current is to be used in the very same year only. It can't be used in the next year or coming years.

Hope it helps!


can I eligible to gate exam after diploma ?

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 22nd Nov, 2019


NO you are not eligible as GATE is only for those candidates who have completed their graduation or in the last year of graduation.

If you are studying diploma then you can give entrance and join any degree college based on the subject you pursued in your diploma.

After completing your graduation or in the last year of graduation you can apply for GATE. In Mean-time, you have to practice well and give your best in the exam.

Hope it helps!
