Importance of a GATE Result and Score

GATE examination is over and the results are Came. GATE results is available on the official website. Detailed list of the GATE exam qualifying candidates would be issued along with an individual GATE score card for each student. In addition, the results will also be available at GATE offices of IISc and all seven IITs.

Who can view GATE Exam Result and Score?

In case of GATE exam, it is not that only the qualified candidates can see their GATE exam results. All the candidates who have appeared for the GATE examination can see their GATE exam scores. GATE score is issued to all those who have taken the exam. However, members of GATE committee are the ones who finally take a call on the qualifying score for each paper in GATE exam. This score is called as the GATE Cutoff. There are two types of admission. The admissions to postgraduate programmes in Engineering may be either made directly on basis of GATE results 2011 or on basis of an interview. In case of admissions made through an additional interview, 70% weightage is given to exam results and 30% weightage is given to interview.

Why aim for a good GATE Result?

Besides IIScs and IITs, GATE results 2011 will also be made available to the interested organizations like educational institutions, research organizations. This result list is shared with various related institutions and organizations in lieu of monetary payments. It is important that candidates prepare hard and obtain high scores in order to secure admission into the desired college and programme. Considering the huge number of applications that come in and the number of candidates who actually take the exam each year, the competition is extremely high and required candidates to be all set to work hard.

How to get a good GATE result and GATE score?

Those who appear for GATE 2011 need to be updated about the various sources for GATE exam study materials. Detailed GATE exam syllabus, GATE exam question papers, previous year question paper sets, GATE sample papers with solutions and answers, list of GATE colleges, Gate cutoff for previous years, etc are some of the essential focus points of preparing oneself for the GATE exam. All this information is easily available on various sites and ExamSavvy.com. Based on the GATE cutoff, you may get an idea about your admission prospects in your desired institute and program. You should also keep in mind that GATE qualifying score and the cutoff changes every year. With all this information available candidates can prepare a chart of activities according to the time at hand to make the maximum of the time and resources at hand.

The results will remain valid for a period of two years after the date of announcement GATE exam result. There is no provision of revaluation. The candidates who appeared in GATE examination may logon to the official GATE website to view their results.

GATE Vs GRE, Which one is best to chose?

Let us start with GATE, it based on the subject we learned during graduation (BE or B.Tech). GATE exam helps in getting admission in M.Tech (master of Technology degree) in Indian colleges and universities. The basic advantage with GATE is that if you do well you will get to see most prestigious engineering institutes in the world. You get a scholarship to support education and get wonderful two years of life that you are going to remember for rest of you life. Even if you little less scores it will take you to some college where you will enjoy scholarship and time.

The real daunting task comes when the master degree is finished. IITs, NITs and some good universities have placements and everyone have to face huge competition. Even top multinational companies one or two candidates out few hundred bright candidates. Another disadvantage, because of high competition, is that somehow one need to remove few candidates to make selection procedure to finish in given time, and usually CGP or percentage will come into picture as a short listing criteria killing many bright students who didn’t cared much about scores and marks.

Now let’s move on to GRE, it’s really exciting to go aboard, specially for Indian students. That motivates many students for preparing for GRE. The biggest advantage studying abroad is that the exposure and huge confidence one gain in life. It also depends on where you study.
Preparing for GRE need extra effort as English is not our first language, though most of Indian student do good, but one the average we don’t do good in English. Apart from this, after GRE, one has to run around a lot to fulfill many other admission requirements. This may discourage few students from taking this option. The other disadvantages are, if you don’t get a scholarship you may land up serving tables in an Indian Restaurant. If your university is not well ranked and you don’t have a scholarship then it’s totally a mess, one or the other day you will land in India for good too.

The conclusion is wherever you go, try to reach excellence and try to be best. Not just say that work like that. Raise above all excuses and work hard to the human capacity and expect the best of it. All Indian you see on the top are because of their hard work and too much competitive and never give up attitude. Let’s work hard and chase our dreams.

Why to do M.Tech?

These are few common questions that almost every final year engineering student has in mind. I had similar questions when I was in B.Tech’s final year, and I had friends who made different decisions at that time. Few prepared GRE and TOFEL and went to US and few took computer courses and joined software industry, few went to government jobs and few like me moved for M.Tech.

Reasons for doing M.Tech. Highly respected, high paid job and a job where we have more control to do things that we like. We got a chance to think of the best way to get higher positions in a short time. Entry to this higher positions in a short time is only possible through IITs. For that give GATE and score high.

The first and foremost advantage of doing M.Tech is that you get time to think where things are going and how you can control them. Where do you want to go and what is your ultimate destination. You know the mistakes you made in B.Tech thus u can avoid them and improve to recover from them.

The second advantage of doing M.Tech is that you add a value to education and will definitely have benefit in the long run. As we are moving ahead in life our educational qualifications are becoming more and more important. At some point where all other competitors have same technical skills you will be given preference over others because of qualification.

The third advantage is that you will get more insight into the subjects as this time you are mature enough to understand the subjects. Usually teachers or professors are better than the ones who taught you in B.Tech and you are more exposed to applications.

The fourth advantage is you will have good friends who are similar to you and trying hard to move ahead in life. If your institute is good you will see all of them in high positions in future, their contacts may be good enough for you to start new projects and help many.

There are lots of other advantages of doing a higher degree. But there may be many social constraints and difficulties that may prevent you from doing master degree. Wish you all a great luck in your future endeavors.

Alternative Exams for GATE Exam

If you missed GATE exam or could not qualify for some reasons or have too less scores and want to try an alternative to get into parent institutes directly. You should try these exams.

TANCET (Tamil Nadu Common Entrance Test):
This exam is conducted by Anna University for admission to M.Tech and other PG courses in its affiliated colleges. We will update you with TANCET 2010 once official notice is published by Anna University.

Post Graduate Common Entrance Test (PGCET) Karnataka:
This exam is counducted by Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) for admission to M.Tech and other PG courses in its affiliated colleges. We will update you with PGCET 2010 once official notice is published by VTU.

Post-Graduate Engineering Common Entrance Test (PGECET):
PGECET is conducted by Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University on behalf of APSHCE (Andhra Pradesh state higher education council) for admission into M.E. / M,Tech./M.Pharm./M.Arch / M.Plg. (full time) in University and affiliated Engineering colleges in A.P. We will update you with PGECET 2010 once official notice is published by JNTU.

Usually the notification for these exams comes during first and second week of April.

How to Calculate Your Gate Percentile?

The GATE percentile is calculated as follows:

P = ( (N- your rank)/ N) x 100

Where P is percentile and N is total number of candidates appeared for exam.
(N- Your rank) indicates the number of candidates who have scored less marks than you.

For example, if total number of candidates are 100 and 90 of them have less marks than you P = (09/100)X100 = 0.9×100 = 90 percentile.

For another example: A guy form Mechanical Engineering have All India Rank (AIR) 99 and total number of student of students appeared for GATE in Mechanical Engineering are 59338 in 2010. Then his percentile would be calculated as

P = ((59338-99)/ 59338) X 100
= (59239/59338) X 100
= (0.9983) X 100
= 99.83
The candidate has 99.83 percentile.
