  • Test Level-: International Level
  •     Eligibility-: Graduation
  • Duration-:3 Hours
  • Stream-: Engineering
  • Medium-: English
  • Examination Mode-: Online
  • Total Questions-: 65
Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is basically an examination on the comprehensive understanding of the candidates in various undergraduate subjects in Engineering/Technology/Architecture and post-graduate level subjects in Science. GATE 2018 will be conducted for 23 subjects (also referred to as “papers”) and it would be distributed over 3rd, 4th, 10th & 11th of February 2018. The GATE examination centres are spread in differentcities across India, as well as, at six cities abroad. It would purely be a Computer Based Test(CBT).
The GATE score would reflect the relative performance level of the candidate in a particular subject, which is quantified based on the several years of examination data. Note that the GATE 2018 score is valid for THREE YEARS from the date of announcement of the results.

How to prepare for GATE 2017?

  • GATE examination consists only of multiple and numerical answer type questions, hence only correct answer fetches marks.
  • Practice previous year question papers and analyze the weak topics and concentrate more on those topics. Candidates must try to solve the papers in a given time limit to obtain an idea as to how many questions are solved within the allotted time.
  • Impart equal emphasis on both theory and numerical problems. 
  • Browse through the GATE syllabus for topics allotted more weightage and prepare them.
  • Group Study is an effective way to brush up knowledge about technical topics with fellow partners and also helps to explore new techniques and methods to better understand the topics.
  • Do not make wild guess as there is negative marking associated with the questions. 
  • Prepare the list of important definitions, equations, derivations, theorems, laws in every subject.
  • Pay more attention while attempting linked and common data questions.

The Admit Card for GATE 2018 will be available ONLY on GOAPS website. A candidate has to download his/her Admit Card from this website. The Admit Card would be available for download, tentatively from 5th January 2018. Note that the Admit Cards will NOT be sent to the candidates by post/e-mail.

Candidates must bring a print-out of the downloaded Admit Card to the Examination for the verification along with the original and valid photo Identity Document (NO photocopy/scanned copy/NOT an expired document), which was specified during the filling up of the online application (for example: Passport, PAN card, Voter ID, Aadhaar-UID, College ID, Employee ID and Driving License)

The Admit Card is valid if and ONLY if the candidate's photograph and signature images are clear and legible. The photograph on the Admit Card and that in the valid photo identity document should match with the appearance of the candidate on the day of examination. To ensure this, print the Admit Card on an A4 sized paper using a laser printer, preferably a color printer. Both, the GATE 2018 Admit Card and the Original ID proof are essential for entry into the examination hall.
