NITs will initiate the M.Tech admission process in May 2021. Check all the details regarding NITs M.Tech admissions, GATE cutoff 2020, and admission process here.

NITs GATE Cutoff

National Institutes of Technology (NIT) is the best option for students to pursue M.Tech course apart from IITs (Indian Institutes of Technology). As NITs are located in most parts across the country, many aspirants prefer to join the M.Tech course in the nearest NIT located in their region or state. However, M.Tech admissions at NIT are purely based on the GATE score, and NITs will come up with individual GATE cutoff after the announcement of GATE results. Similar to IITs, the GATE score is mandatory for candidates to take M.Tech admission at NITs. The M.Tech admission process of IITs and NITs is different. At present, NITs take part in the Centralised Counselling Process to fill M.Tech seats in their institutes. The new system replaced the older system where students had to apply individually for each institute, take part in an interview, etc. More details associated with NIT GATE cutoff 2020, M.Tech admission process, M.Tech course fee at NITs, eligibility criteria and selection criteria here.

About GATE Cutoff for NITs

The GATE Cutoff for each NIT will be different from others. Each NIT will determine its GATE cutoff based on a bunch of factors. However, the GATE cutoff for all NITs will be uploaded on the official website of CCMT (Centralised Counselling for M.Tech), and students must check the same from the CCMT website. Some of the factors based on which NITs prepare GATE cutoff are –

  • Previous year GATE cutoff of NIT is one of the major criteria for determining the M.Tech GATE cutoff for the upcoming admission season.
  • The difficulty level (easy/ moderate/ difficult) is another component that plays a crucial role in deciding the GATE cutoff for each specialisation of the M.Tech course offered by NITs.
  • The reputation of institutes, the total number of M.Tech seats available in each specialisation, the total number of aspirants competing for M.Tech admission at each NIT and the total number of candidates cleared GATE are the other factors that help NITs in preparing GATE cutoff for M.Tech courses.

GATE Cutoff 2020 for NITs

All NITs have announced GATE cutoff 2020 for different specializations of the M.Tech course after the conclusion of the admission process. The GATE cutoff 2020 for NITs have been uploaded on this page, and you can click on the links below to check the cutoff.

Freezing
