Questions related to GATE

Have a question related to GATE ?

While GATE is a prestigious exam and your IIT background is impressive, most MBA programs in India, including IIMs, primarily consider CAT, GMAT, or other management entrance exams for admissions.

GATE scores are typically used for admissions to engineering-based postgraduate programs or for recruitment in PSUs. There might be a few exceptions like NITIE Mumbai which accepts GATE scores for specific MBA programs, but these are limited.

To increase your chances of getting into a top MBA program, I recommend focusing on preparing for management entrance exams like CAT or GMAT.

Hi,

Preparing for the GATE exam (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) in AI/ML requires a strategic selection of papers that align closely with your academic background and interests. Here are the recommended papers for students from an AI/ML background:

1. Computer Science and Information Technology (CS): This is the most suitable paper for candidates with a background in AI/ML. It covers a wide range of topics including algorithms, programming, theory of computation, databases, computer networks, and AI/ML.

2. Mathematics (MA): This paper includes topics such as linear algebra, calculus, probability, and statistics, which are foundational for understanding machine learning algorithms and AI models.

3. Statistics (ST): This paper focuses on statistical methods, probability theory, inference, and data analysis, which are directly relevant to machine learning and AI applications.


Among these options, the Computer Science and Information Technology (CS) paper is generally the most chosen by students with an AI/ML background. It covers a broad spectrum of topics that are directly applicable to AI and machine learning, including:


- Algorithms

- Data structures

- Theory of computation

- Digital logic

- Computer organization and architecture

- Operating systems

- Databases

- Computer networks

- Software engineering

- Web technologies


It's crucial to review the GATE syllabus thoroughly and align your preparation with the topics mentioned. Additionally, practicing previous years' question papers and mock tests will help you familiarize yourself with the exam format and improve your time management skills.


Hope it helps!

In most cases, leaving a 5-year integrated M.Tech program after the B.Tech portion (usually after 4 years) to pursue an M.Tech elsewhere through GATE is not possible.

Integrated programs are designed as a complete package, with the B.Tech portion leading seamlessly into the M.Tech specialization. Exiting after the B.Tech portion might disrupt the curriculum and might not grant you a standalone B.Tech degree.

Universities often have regulations that don't allow students to exit integrated programs midway.


Carefully review the regulations or brochures related to the 5-year integrated M.Tech program at NIT Patna. Look for sections on program structure, exit options, or award of degrees. Reach out to the admissions office or program coordinator at NIT Patna. They can give you the most accurate information about leaving the program after the B.Tech portion.
