M.   1 Introduction   Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all India examination that primarily tests a comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in Engineering and Technology.D. 1. As per the directives of the MHRD. reservation of seats under different categories is as per the policies and norms prevailing at the admitting institution and Government of India rules. Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD)..Tech. The admitting institution could however prescribe minimum passing percentage of marks in the interview. candidates with Master’s degree in Engineering/Technology/Architecture may seek admission to relevant Doctoral programmes with scholarship/assistantship without appearing in the GATE examination. Candidates are advised to seek details of admission procedures and availability of MHRD scholarship/assistantship from the concerned admitting institution. The management of the postgraduate scholarship/assistantship is also the responsibility of the admitting institution.

The score is used for admissions to post-graduate engineering programmes (eg. 1.) in Indian higher education institutes with financial assistance provided by MHRD and other Government agencies. Government of India. M. Department of Higher Education. The GATE score of a candidate reflects a relative performance level in a particular paper in the exam across several years. The criteria for postgraduate admission with scholarship/assistantship are different for different admitting institutions. The performance of the candidate in GATE will be considered for admission.1 Financial Assistance A valid GATE score is essential for obtaining a financial assistance during Masters programmes and direct Doctoral programmes in Engineering/Technology/Architecture. GATE offices will not entertain any enquiry about admission. reservation of seats or award of scholarship/assistantship Nevertheless.E. If the candidate is to be selected through interview for postgraduate programmes.
