Why should I appear in GATE?

There are mainly two reasons to appear in GATE exam first is Post Graduation from most reputed engineering colleges in India such as IIT/NIT/IIIT and second is high earning jobs in Public sector units such as GAIL, NTPC, BHEL, PGCIL etc. Let’s discuss them in detail


  1. What is so special about doing M.Tech or Ph.D. from IIT/NIT/IIIT well not so much If you are already an undergrad student of it but if you belong to some private or state level engineering college then it can be a huge deal for you WHY? Because you will be going to exposed to some of the greatest faculties of India, you will get a chance to work under them in some projects and get real life experience, you will get the best infrastructure to live and work in.
  2. It will be totally FREE. See when you qualify GATE you become eligible for 12400/- stipend every month for the next two years during your post-graduation (if you maintain minimum CPI during your course which is different in different colleges) which means your tuition, hotel and mess fees along with your personal expense will get cover from it.

  5. In some case people just don’t want to study further anymore in that case GATE also offers high paying jobs in PSU, let’s discuss it
