Vemireddy Rushitha Student Expert 22nd Oct, 2019

Hello aspirant,

You are eligible to get a job in PSU if you crack the GATE exam, it does not matter what degree you choose, what matters here is your GATE marks. But as you are an automobile student, it will be probably a little bit difficult for you to prepare for mechanical exams as your syllabus will differ.

All the best!
