We have received a lot of e-mails of aspirants who were not able to score high in GATE. Keeping this in mind, our GATECounsellor team suggests the following:

    • There is a possibility that some of the high scorers are currently in the pre-final year of their programme.
    • From past few years, various PSUs require GATE score as a prerequisite. Some of the high-score GATE qualified students may prefer PSUs instead of pursuing MTech.
    • There may be a variation in number of admission seats of a programme.
  • There are some institutes who take their own entrance examination for PG programmes. Some of these are: IIIT Hyderabad, IIIT Bangalore, CSIR, DAIICT, ISI Kolkata, Thapar university, ISM Dhanbad and BITS Pilani.
  • Read the information brochure of each institute carefully. Look for the various interdisciplinary/MS/MSc/MTech(RA) options available in each institute. For queries relating to specific departments (placements/research/institute's culture), contact the relevant persons studying there through the mail ids given on the institute's website. You can also ask your doubts here:
