GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering)

GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering)

The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an examination that primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in engineering and science. GATE is conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven Indian Institutes of Technology (Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee) on behalf of the National Coordination Board – GATE, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Government of India.

The GATE score of a candidate reflects the relative performance level of a candidate. The score is used for admissions to various post-graduate education programs (e.g. Master of Engineering, Master of Technology, Doctor of Philosophy) in Indian higher education institutes, with financial assistance provided by MHRD and other government agencies. Recently, GATE scores are also being used by several Indian public sector undertakings (i.e., government-owned companies) for recruiting graduate engineers in entry-level positions. It is one of the most competitive examinations in India. Based on the success story of IITs all over the world, GATE is also recognized by various international institutes such as Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

The GATE program goals are to:

• meet students' intellectual needs,
• motivate students to reach their highest potential,
• increase the application of critical thinking skills,
• promote positive social-emotional skills.

For the purposes of funding, students in grades 4-6 can qualify for the GATE program if they meet identification criteria. The faculty recognizes that gifted students can be identified at earlier ages, however, due to the nature of state funding laws, it is fiscally more beneficial for Montecito School District to identify fewer than 50 students. Those 50 students can be identified in grades 4-6. If we identified younger students, we would exceed 50 students and our allocation of funds would actually be less than funding allocated for “smaller school districts.”

All the papers of GATE will be conducted by an ONLINE computer Based Test (CBT). The GATE paper consists of questions of both multiple choice type and numerical answer type. For numerical answer type questions, the candidates have to enter a number as the answer using a virtual key board. The GATE examination consists of a single paper of 3 hour duration that contains 65 questions carrying a maximum of 100 marks.

The syllabi for the exam in Engineering streams include General aptitude (Numerical & Verbal) for 15 marks, Engineering Mathematics for 10 to 13 marks and the rest of 72 to 75 marks in technical subjects studied at B.Tech level.
