    Hi,

    You should have first division and above in your Undergraduate degree for GATE examination. As per my research, candidates with following qualifications are eligible for GATE:

    • Bachelor’s degree in engineering/architecture/technology.
    • Master’s degree in any branch of Science/ Mathematics/ Statistics/ Computer Applications or equivalent
    • Qualifications equivalent to B.E./B.Tech. by professional societies recognized by UPSC/AICTE (e.g. AMIE by IE, AME by ICE)

    Do write to us in case of any queries further.

    Regards

    Yes, this is copied as you mentioned but I guess Ashok is doing a decent job by trying to give as much information as possible.
    Also, as pointed out by you it would be great if we can get the tips from toppers and mentors. Ashok, can you try to get this for learnhubbers?
