will dual degree in IITS come for the GATE 2020 score 421 in ECE branch for an OC student

Sharon K Rose Student Expert 24th May, 2020


Candidates getting admission in dual degree through JEE Advanced need not to appear in GATE.And the cut off will not be the same for dual degree through JEE Advanced and M.tech through GATE.Considering previous year cut off trends it is difficult to get seat in IITs with such score.You need to score at least 600 or above to have decent chances of getting seat in a IIT.
