For PG admissions

One of the most important tests in India is the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE). This admission exam measures a candidate’s thorough comprehension of numerous engineering and science undergraduate courses. On behalf of the National Coordination Board, it is carried out yearly by seven IITs (Bombay, Delhi, Kanpur, Guwahati, Roorkee, Madras, and Kharagpur) and IISc Bangalore.

Despite the fact that the GATE score is only accepted for admission to certain post-graduate programmes in India, several institutions in Singapore and Germany also accept the GATE score as proof of eligibility.
