Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all-India examination. It is conducted by the Indian Institute of Science and seven Indian Institutes of Technology. It is organised by the National Coordination Board GATE, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India.
In this competitive scenario, when there is numerous universities and engineering colleges, the only yardstick to measure and test the caliber of engineering students is the GATE. There is a misconception among students that GATE exam is only meant for ME./M.Tech or some PSUs.
Advantage of Gate Exam
Many public sector undertakings such as BHEL, Indian Oil Corporation, NTPC, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre are using the GATE score for selecting candidates for their organisations. Students who qualify in GATE are entitled to a stipend of Rs 12,500 per month during their M.Tech course. Better remuneration is being offered for students of M.Tech/M.E as compared to those pursuing B.Tech /B.E. A good GATE rank assures a good job. After joining M.Tech. at IITs and IISc, one can look at a salary package ranging from Rs 14 lakh to 35 lakh per annum, depending upon their performance.
Clearing GATE is also an eligibility criteria for the award of Junior Research Fellowship in CSIR Laboratories. M.Tech. degree is compulsory for those wishing to apply for research positions in R&D centres. GATE score is valid for two years and who qualify this test is also eligible for doing Master’s degree at NUS, (National University of Singapore), Singapore. A GATE score definitely gives an edge when it comes to joining reputed companies as well as for an off-campus recruitment.

It is one of the important examinations for engineers in our country where competition is very high and it requires consistent study in a planned manner.
It aims at rigorous testing of the students’ capability in engineering concepts along with aptitude. Engineering subjects cover 70 per cent weightage while General aptitude and Engineering Mathematics cover 30 per cent in total.
The three-hour GATE paper has a total of 65 questions, out of which 30 questions are of one mark and 35 questions are of two marks. The two-mark questions further include two pairs of common data questions and two pairs of linked answer questions.

The Gate Coach students succeed in GATE-2013, Gate 2014, GATE 2015 and again in Gate 2016 exam results and also in IES, PSU, SSC, BEL, JTO, HAL, DRDO, ONGC, RCFL, BARC, FCI, ISRO, MTNL, BSNL, NALCO, HINDALCO, NFL, NMDC, OIL, POWER GRID, AOI, GAIL, COAL INDIA, NTPC, NHPC, HCL, SAIL, BHEL, IOCL etc exams continuously. Students are producing excellent results as per the guidance of our faculty. Faculty is from renowned Institutes like IIT, DCE, and from Govt. sector like Ex. IES, IAS and public sector undertakings etc. Teachers analyse previous year papers of exams like GATE 2015, GATE 2016, IES and PSU and provide solutions to previous year papers. We also provide classes for GS, aptitude and reasoning along with technical syllabus. Our next batches of GATE 2018 will be based on revised pattern of GATE exam.
