GATE Full Form

A brief history

Looking at a brief history of GATE, the exam was started by IISC Bangalore in 1984 to get admissions in IISC and IITs for Masters and Doctoral programmes. Later it was adopted as an eligibility criterion by the regional colleges to get admissions in their institutes. In its initial phase, the exam was subjective in the pattern which was later, in around 1991, was changed to multiple choice questions. Gradually, the changes in exam patterns and the addition of subjects were made to maintain the quality of exam with the rising competition.

Now, millions of engineering, science graduates, and postgraduates see GATE as a profitable prospect for their higher studies and jobs in Public Sector Undertaking(PSU). Sometimes, a funny part of the candidates appearing for this exam comes to notice, that many of them are not aware of the full form of GATE. Even if this is not a grave mistake, one should be aware of all the nitty-gritty of the exam which shows his/her seriousness towards it. The rising population of appearing candidates in this exam, hence increasing competition, has led advent of many coaching institutes- offline or online. Many prosper and spread henceforth, while some enjoy the autocracy at a local or regional level.

GATE is a very comprehensive and competitive exam, it requires a very disciplined and dedicated preparation from a candidate. And the success cannot be left upon the efforts of the coaching centers but of the candidate’s own. We wish you all the best and hard studies for the GATE 2018.
