1. Introduction
Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all India examination that
primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of the candidate in various
undergraduate subjects in Engineering/Technology/Architecture and post-
graduate level subjects in Science. The GATE score of a candidate reflects a relative
performance level in a particular subject in the exam. The score is used for
admissions to post-graduate programs (eg. M.E., M.Tech, direct Ph.D.) in Indian
institutes of higher education with financial assistance provided by MHRD and
other Government agencies.  The score may also be used by Public and Private
Sector Undertakings for employment screening purposes.
The information in this brochure is mainly categorized into Pre-examination 
(Eligibility, Application Submission, Examination Centers etc.), Examination 
(Syllabus, Pattern, Marks/Score, Model Question Papers etc.) & Post-Examination 
(Answers, Results, Scorecard etc.) sections.  
2. About GATE 2014
The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs 
at Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee) jointly 
administer the conduct of GATE. The operations related to GATE in each of the 8 
zones are managed by a Zonal GATE Office at IISc. or IITs. The Organizing Institute 
(OI) is responsible for the end-to-end process and coordination amongst the 
administering Institutes. The Organizing Institute for GATE 2014 is IIT Kharagpur. 
2.1. Financial Assistance 
A valid GATE score is essential for obtaining financial assistance during Master’s 
programs and direct Doctoral programs in Engineering/ Technology/ Architecture, 
and Doctoral programs in relevant branches of Science in Institutes supported by 
the MHRD or other Government agencies.  As per the directives of the MHRD, the 
following procedure is to be adopted for admission to the post-graduate programs 
(Master’s and Doctoral) with MHRD scholarship/ assistantship. Depending upon the 
norms adopted by a specific institute or department of the Institute, candidate may 
be admitted directly into a course based on his/her performance in GATE only or 
based on his/her performance in GATE and an admission test/interview conducted 
by the department to which he/she has applied and/or the candidate’s academic 
record. If the candidate is to be selected through interview for post-graduate 
programs, the minimum of 70% weightage will be given to the performance in GATE 
and the remaining 30% weightage will be given to the candidate’s performance in 
interview and/or academic record, as per MHRD guidelines. The admitting institutes 
could however prescribe a minimum passing percentage of marks in the 
test/interview. Some colleges/institutes specify GATE qualification as the mandatory 
requirement even for admission without MHRD scholarship/ assistantship. 
To avail of the financial assistance (scholarship), the candidate must first secure 
admission to a program in these Institutes, by a procedure that could vary from 
institute to institute. Qualification in GATE is also a minimum requirement to apply 
for various fellowships awarded by many Government organizations. Candidates are 
advised to seek complete details of admission procedures and availability of MHRD 
scholarship/assistantship from the concerned admitting institution. The criteria for 
postgraduate admission with scholarship/ assistantship could be different for 
different institutions. The management of the post-graduate scholarship/ 
assistantship is the responsibility of the admitting institution. Similarly, reservation
