Know the Top 5 Advantages of PSUs Hiring through GATE

1. Recruiting the Best Talent

The biggest advantage for PSUs that they get to recruit from the biggest pool of talent, i.e., qualified candidates through GATE. Candidates clearing this national entrance exam are among the top aspirants because of their proven sharp analytical and decision-making abilities. Such candidates are in a way the ‘cream’ of the engineering domain. PSUs recruiting through GATE get the chance to recruit such talented candidates as their employees.


2. Advantage of a Single Exam

PSUs hiring through GATE saves a lot of their time and effort. GATE is a single exam that tests the candidates on their respective engineering discipline as well as the analytical and decision-making abilities. Students qualifying in this entrance exam have to know their subject well. Thus, PSUs can be sure that they will get the best candidates to select from. All this, with a single exam- GATE!


3. Credibility of an Online Exam

GATE is an online exam, which means that the results will be reliable. It is believed that the exam process is completely transparent. Moreover, this entrance exam is conducted by IITs, which makes the whole procedure unquestionable.


4. Dual Advantage for Students

Clearing GATE can be considered advantageous for engineering students who are desirous to enter PSUs. Because of this entrance exam, a lot of time is saved by candidates as they do not have to prepare separately for different exams of each company. They just need to practice for a single exam pattern. On qualifying the exam, there are two options in front of them, both of which are equally good. Either they can go for post graduation or, they can opt for a job in PSUs. Candidates need to prepare from the engineering syllabus of their under-graduation or B.Tech which is a dual advantage so they don’t really need to check for extra material and they can study for GATE to get a direct entry to a good PSU.


5. Job Security, Good Package and other Benefits

Being employed by one of the premier PSUs of the country directly means a good decent pay cheque, alluring perks, medical facilities, and most importantly, security of the job. The pay packages in PSUs generally range from 5 lakhs to 12 lakhs, which is pretty good for aspirants coming under the general age limit of 25-28 years specified separately by each PSU.

GATE is an online exam with expected reliable results. In recent years, this exam has become the deciding factor for students. Experts too are favoring PSU recruitment through GATE because of innumerable benefits.

GATE has become more than just an entrance exam. The PSU Recruitment has increased its popularity that the number of annual GATE applications was 9.85 lakhs in 2013, making it one of the most important entrance exams in the country for the engineering students. Cracking it is surely a GATEway to success!

As you are still in your 3rd year, you might not be still aware of the complete GATE syllabus. So analyse the topics and syllabus that you have learnt for the past 3 years and practise as much Mathematics as you can. Try as many mock tests as possible and get a hang of the exam pattern.
