Securing a rank in GATE is tough but here in this article, I will provide you with step by step guide to follow on how to secure a good rank in GATE in just 3 months.

I secure a good rank in GATE by preparing for just 1 month.

What is GATE? What are the benefits of GATE?

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering also known as GATE held by IITs or IISc every year to take admission into the Master’s programme at different engineering colleges in India.

Public Sector Undertaking companies also consider GATE rank as a measure for their recruitment purpose.

Many other foreign colleges also consider GATE rank to give admission to qualified students into their different Master’s programmes.

GATE has been the most attractive exam for engineering students nowadays for its multiple benefits.

Almost 10 Lakh students appear for GATE every year from different engineering streams.

Why securing a good rank in GATE is important?

As I have already said due to its versatile scope it is now necessary for every engineering student to appear in GATE and secure a good rank to get placed in some of the best PSUs of our country or to take admission in the best engineering colleges in India for the Master’s programme or to take admission in some of the best foreign universities.

These all benefits of the GATE exam made it one of the best exams for engineers in India.

Due to high competition in the GATE exam, a good rank is necessary to secure a seat in any of the possibilities of the GATE exam.

A good rank means you get a chance to get selected in the best PSU to secure a seat in good old NITs.

If I talk about rank then a good rank lies between AIR 1 to AIR under 3000.

Beyond AIR 3000 it’s getting harder for you to seal a seat in any good NITs with a good branch.

A good rank in GATE is important because it creates a huge number of possibilities to select from whether it comes to getting recruited in a PSUs or taking admission into the best colleges.

What is the syllabus of GATE?

GATE syllabus is divided into three parts

  1. Aptitude and English
  2. Engineering Mathematics
  3. Technical Paper

In Aptitude and English basic questions were asked up to the 10th standard level.
So you can prepare it easily.
15 marks were asked from this section every year.

In Engineering Mathematics, the syllabus is up to the engineering level and basic questions were asked in the exam.
12 Marks were asked from this section.

Technical Paper was asked from your engineering stream.
The syllabus of the Technical Paper is from your BTech course.

What is considered to be a good rank in GATE?

A good rank is that rank through which you will be able to get a PSU job or take admission in an MTech course in any of the reputed colleges.

From my point of view, good lies between AIR 1 to AIR 3000.

Beyond All India Rank (AIR) 3000, it will become difficult to get admission into any reputed engineering college in India.

By reputed college, I mean Top IITs and Top NITs.

Older IITs and NITs are among the best colleges in India.

If you get a rank beyond AIR 3000, then you might get admission into any of the NITs or other government engineering colleges in India but it might not be the older NITs or a good branch in older NITs.

Try to focus on getting a rank under AIR 3000, so that you can choose among the best.
