Getting admission into master programme in IITs is a dream for many students. To turn this dream into reality, students prepare hard to get high scores in GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) Examination. The admission is competitive as there are limited seats for different engineering courses.
The GATE cutoff for IIT Kanpur is around 700 for Computer Science for direct admissions. For other branches like EC, IT the cutoff is around 750. The cutoff is lower for a call to the interview and written test. GATE cutoff is around 600 for getting interview call from IITs. To get good score, it is important that you analyze your performance in mock tests.
The GATE cutoff for Electronics and Communication, Mechanical Engineering is higher than for other engineering branches like Computer Science, Electrical Engineering at IITs (Indian Institute of Technology). The cutoff for Civil Engineering is lower compared to Computer science, Electrical Engineering.
The GATE score is valid for two years from the date of announcement of GATE results. The GATE score is made available to all the candidates irrespective of whether they qualified or not. Students can get GATE results from the GATE website or from GATE offices of IISc/IITs.
It is not necessary that if you have lower GATE score, then you will not be called for interview and written test. The candidates with outstanding achievements like publications, industry experience may be called for the interview despite lower score. Even candidates with lower GATE score may get admission if they have good profile. The GATE cutoff is calculated every year on the basis of number of applications received. Hence the GATE cutoff 2012 may vary from GATE 2011 cutoff. For direct admissions, the cutoff is higher. However, those with slightly lower score may get call from IITs for written test or interviews.
