GATE 2014 :-
The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all India examination that primarily tests of comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in engineering and science. GATE is conducted jointly by the IISc and seven Indian Institutes Of Tehnology (IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, IIT Guwahati, IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Madras and IIT Rorkee) on behalf of the National Coordination Board – GATE, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India. The GATE score of a candidate reflects the relative performance level of a candidate. The score is used for admissions to various post-graduate programmes (e.g. M.E., M.Tech, direct Ph.D.) in Indian higher education institutes with financial assistance provided by MHRD and other Government agencies. The score may also be used by Public sector units for employment screening purposes.
Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is the test for Post-graduate engineering admissions, screening for entry-level engineering jobs, etc.

General aptitude questions
All the papers contain a few questions that test the “general aptitude” (language and analytic skills), apart from the core subject of the discipline.
Duration and examination type
The GATE examination consists of a single test of 3-hour duration that contains 65 questions carrying a maximum of 100 marks. The questions consist of both multiple choice questions (MCQs) and numerical answer type questions.
From 2014 onwards, the examination for all the papers is carried out in an online Computer Based Test (CBT) mode where the candidates are shown the questions in a random sequence on a computer screen. The candidates are required to either select the answer (for multiple-choice question type) or enter the answer for numerical answer type question using a mouse on a virtual keyboard (keyboard of the computer is disabled). Candidates are provided with blank paper sheets for rough work and these have to be returned back after the examination. At the end of the 3-hour window, the computer automatically closes the screen from further actions.
Result Of GATE :-
GATE Results are usually declared a little over one month after the exam. The results show the total marks scored by a candidate, the GATE score, the all-India rank and the cut off marks for various categories in the candidate’s paper. The score is valid for 2 years from the date of announcement of the results. The score cards is issued to all qualified candidates.
From 2013, the GATE score is computed by a new formula.
A candidate’s score is computed as:
- S = GATE Score (normalised) of a candidate,
- M = Marks obtained by a candidate in a paper,
- Mq = Qualifying marks for general category candidates in the paper,
- Mt = Average Marks of top 0.1% or 10 (which ever is higher) of candidates in the paper,
- St = GATE Score assigned to Mt (around 900), and
- Sq = GATE Score assigned to Mq (around 300).
Mq is usually 25 marks (out of 100) or μ + σ, whichever is higher. Here μ is the mean of marks of all candidates in a paper (with negative marks converted to zero) and σ is the standard deviation of the candidates’ marks.
NEW In GATE 2014 :-
- A new paper of “Ecology and Evolution” is introduced.
- Examinations for all the 22 papers will be conducted by an online Computer-Based Test (CBT). The online examination paper will contain some questions for which numerical answers must be keyed in by the candidate using the “virtual” (i.e. on-screen) keypad. Rest of the questions shall be of Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) type.
- Female candidates are required to pay some fee for application, a change introduced due to many raising complaints about a large portion of female candidates who registered but did not appear for the exam in 2013.
- Application fee is increased from Rs1200 to Rs1500 for general category, OBC male/other candidates, and Rs750 for all female candidates and SC, ST male/other candidates.
- Examinations will be held during forenoon and afternoon sessions on alternate weekends (Saturday and Sunday) between 1 February 2014 and 2 March 2014. Examination for some of the papers in GATE 2014 will be held in multiple sessions.
Recruitment through GATE :-
Public sector undertakings (PSUs) in India, for long, have had troubles conducting their recruitment processes with more than 100,000 students giving the exams for less than 1000 jobs (a selection rate of less than 1%). After sensing the exponential rise in the number of engineering graduates in India who wish to get a PSU job, the PSUs have decided that a GATE score shall be the primary criteria for initial shortlisting. This change was the primary cause for the rapid increase in applicants for GATE 2012.
Indian Oil Corporation was the first PSU which successfully tested out this system and was followed two years later by National Power Thermal Corporation, Bharat Heavy Electricals, Bharat Electronics & Power Grid Corporation Of India.
Usually these companies release their recruitment notifications right after GATE notification, indicating that candidates have to take GATE to be considered for a job in their organizations.
As of now, the following public sector undertakings have signed Memorendums Of Understandings (MoUs) with the GATE 2014 organizing committee, for using GATE 2014 score as a screening tool for recruiting engineers at entry level positions:
- Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd.
- Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd.
- Indian Oil Corporation Ltd.
- National Fertilisers Ltd.
- Neyveli Lignite Corporation Ltd.
- National Hydro Electric Power Corporation Ltd.
- National Power Thermal Corporation Ltd.
- Power Grid Corporation Of India Ltd.
- Vizag Steel Plant
- Gas Authority Of India Limited (GAIL)
- Mineral Exploration Corporation Ltd.
