IIT Delhi to conduct GATE 2020

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) has become one of the biggest recruitment examination in India. GATE makes graduate engineers to be eligible for recruitment for vacancies in Public Sector Units (PSU). No wonder more and more engineers are appearing in GATE every year. GATE score is also used for admission to Post Graduation of Engineering (M.Tech./ME) in Indian Technical Institutes.
Recruitment Examination

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all India examination administered and conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) on behalf of the National Coordination Board - GATE, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Government of India.

Every year in the month of September and October, the notification of GATE published in the newspapers.  GATE is conducted in the succeeding months of February and March. According to the rotational pattern followed by the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE), the 2020 exam will be conducted by IIT-Delhi. The applications for the year 2020 exams are expected to begin from September onward.

This year, Biomedical Engineering has been introduced as one of the core engineering subjects. This will open the gates for students aspiring to make a foray into the field.

The exam which was earlier conducted by IIT Madras this year 2019, comprised of questions on general aptitude, engineering mathematics, and core engineering subject of the candidate. In GATE 2019, candidates could appear for only one of the 24 subjects in areas such as Mathematics, Aerospace Engineering, Biotechnology, Agricultural Engineering, Architecture and Planning, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, to name a few, for admission to the IITs, NITs and Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs). With the introduction of Biomedical Engineering, the number of subjects at GATE will increase to 25.

While around 9.29 lakh candidates had appeared for the exam in 2019, they were a tad higher in 2018 where the figures were up by 63000.

Though the IITs play a key role in conducting the examination apart from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, there is a perception that the IITians do not evince much interest in appearing for the exam. However, going by recent trends, three toppers in GATE 2019 were from IIT Delhi.

As stated above GATE has become De facto of Engineering Recruitment examination in India as almost all PSUs and state government departments are recruiting engineers on the basis of GATE score only. Since PSUs (which use GATE scores for selecting graduate engineers at entry-level positions) do not conduct campus placements, only a small percentage of IITians seek job opportunities in these sectors. GATE has therefore emerged as an up-gradation for non-IITians.
