Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is a prestigious all India examination administered and conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven Indian Institutes of Technology.
Admission to postgraduate programs with government scholarships/assistantships in engineering colleges/ institutes/ Universities is open to those who qualify through this test.
• In GATE 2012, several new features were introduced.
• The application process was online with an online fee payment option and downloadable admit cards.
• The sale of offline applications and mailing the hardcopy admit cards have been discontinued.
• For the first time, the images of the Optical Response Sheet (ORS) were made available on the GATE websites along with the responses picked up by the scanner so that the candidates could cross-check and make a request for rechecking the ORS if there were any discrepancies.
