What is GATE?
The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering or GATE is an exam for undergraduate students of engineering and science. It is an all-India examination conducted by the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and the major Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT). The main objective of the exam is to evaluate the students’ understanding of a chosen engineering or science principle and the ability to solve technical problems.
 
When is the GATE 2014 exam?

The GATE 2014 exams take place from 1st Feb 2014 – 2nd March 2014. The various subjects are designated a respective date. The exams are held on a weekend and the location depends on the preferred test centre of the candidate during registration.
The exam is for duration of 3 hours to contain 65 questions which carry a maximum of 100 marks. The examinations for the paper are carried out on an online computer related exam mode where the answers are keyed in on a virtual keyboard.
 
How is the GATE exam paper evaluated?

The GATE examinations are held in various sessions for different subjects. Therefore there is a need to normalize to make sure any variation in the difficulty level of the papers across the sessions does not affect the result of the candidate. The GATE 2014 score of the candidate is obtained using the following formula,
 Score = Sq + (St – Sq )*( M – Mq)/(Mt - M­­a)
where,
M  : Marks obtained by the candidate
Mq : Qualifying marks for  general category
Mt  : Mean of marks obtained by the top 0.1% of candidates
Sq  ­: 350, score assigned to Mq
S : 900, score assigned to Mt
 
Where and when is the GATE 2014 result announced?

The results are announced on the online application website in the candidates account on 28th March 2014. After the declaration of results, the GATE score cards will be issued to the candidates via mail to the corresponding address. The GATE 2014 committee has the authority to decide the qualifying score for each GATE paper and the decision is final.


Where can I use the GATE score?

The GATE scores are mainly required for admission into the post graduation programs like M.E/M.Tech or PhD. Most institutions in India specify GATE qualification as mandatory for the admission process. The top rank holders are also awarded a scholarship and annual gratuity. Recently, many universities abroad such as the National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and some universities in Germany also recognize the GATE score for the admission proves. The most sought after institutes are the IITs and the IISc. These institutes select only the creamy layer of students and provide them excellent opportunities.
 
Can I get a job with my GATE score?


The Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) in India have made it mandatory for the applicants to clear the GATE exam with a high score. These companies often recruit the best scorers in their stream. Indian Oil Corporation was the first PSU which effectively experienced out this system. It was followed by the National Thermal Power Corporation, Bharat Heavy Electricals, Bharat Electronics & Power Grid Corporation of India.

Best GATE Study Materials

Posted by Examsavvy On 11:03 PM No comments
Introduction to GATE: 
GATE stands for “Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering”. It is conducted all over the nation to enable an engineering graduate to pursue “Master Degree” in specific engineering streams. Graduates who aim to pursue an M.Tech from IIT’s and other premium technological universities in India need to take GATE exam and has to qualify by attaining a higher percentile. Various Educational Institutes impose a cut-off on the GATE Percentile of a student to secure seat in their organization for pursuing M.Tech.

GATE Examination Pattern: 
The examination consists of multiple choice questions and they are supposed the answer within three hours. The test is made online and students are providing with worksheets to work out the problems.

Why GATE Study Materials: 
GATE questions are often not direct and hence the student needs to get trained in understanding the question properly and work towards the expected solution. It is just difficult to achieve the required goal with mere academic books. Hence study materials focused completely upon the GATE Examination Pattern is very much required to get accustomed with the questions that are likely to be asked. Also study materials often throw light on the Engineering concepts which are discussed in depth in some IITs unlike other premier engineering institutes. Also the study materials provide tips and rapid formulae by which we can solve the given problem within less time.

Study Organizations: 
There are many GATE coaching organizations which provide extensive coaching on the examination and also provide a high quality study materials for students to enable easy learning at home. There are institutes like “VANI”, ‘ACE”,”BRILLIANT” etc which provide a structured study material.

Generally the coaching institutes provide study materials for offline reading. They are often divided based on subjects and at the end of each chapter there would be questions on the covered subject to test the student knowledge. The basic source of these study materials are again the academic books. Some coaching centers also sell their study materials exclusively for the students who have not enrolled in their organization. It is a kind of promotion they do to promote their study materials.
Most of them find “BRILLIANT TUTORIALS” to be the best as it is prepared by the lectures and professors who are working/worked in the top most educational institutes of India. Their study material is divided into number of sets depending upon the stream of engineering and distributed to the enrolled students on time to time. Along with each study material set students are also given test papers to test their knowledge on the subjects covered in that particular set. Their doubt scheme is extremely efficient. Students can post their queries and they are responded by the staff without most care. But the condition is that student just can’t post their queries on a particular problem. They have to try working on the problem first. If they are unable to solve it then they need to attach their work sheets along with their question. After all these are the attempts to bring the best out of the students.
