GATE 2022 Cutoff (Out)

On March 16, IIT Kharagpur has announced the GATE 2022 cutoff along with the GATE 2022 results. The cut-off is the minimum qualifying mark that students must achieve in order to be admitted to postgraduate studies (M.E., M.Tech, MS, Direct PhD) at institutes of national importance like IITs, NITs, and IISc, among others. GATE cut-offs are published in three categories: minimum qualifying marks for each stream, institute-specific cut-off scores for admission, and PSU-specific cut-off scores. Candidates who achieve the minimal GATE cutoff determined by the exam authorities are eligible to participate in the CCMT 2022 and COAP 2022 counselling processes. 

GATE 2022 was successfully conducted on 5, 6, 12 and 13 February for a total of 29 subjects. After the declaration of the result and cutoff scores, the GATE 2022 counselling process will begin. The final GATE 2022 answer key is also expected to release on March 17.

Opportunities After GATE 2022 Result

The opportunities that present themselves before the candidates after the declaration of the GATE result are listed below - 

  • M.Tech admission in reputed institutions - When the GATE Exam 2022 results are declared and the candidates are selected in the merit lists, they can apply for M. Tech admission at any of the seven IITs or private colleges throughout India. It's the most prevalent entry point, and every engineer desires to take advantage of it. With a strong GATE score, the candidates will be eligible for M. Tech studies, stipends, and other academic perks and privileges at the nation's finest engineering colleges. The candidates can get several nice career prospects after finishing M. Tech. GATE can be a critical step toward engineering students securing a prosperous career
  • Apply for jobs in the PSUs - Several PSUs employ individuals with high GATE scores. GATE scores are used by more than 200 public sector organisations (PSUs) to select engineering students, including BHEL, IOCL, NPCIL, ONGC, and NTPC. PSU positions for GATE certified students provides an exceptional wage package, a good work-life balance, and other advantages like reimbursements, discounted rates, quarters to stay, help for their children's further education, PFs, pensions, and more. The bulk of students want to be accepted for various PSUs, and even if they are picked for M. Tech, they continue to study for the GATE examination scheduled next year. The PSU recruiting process includes a legitimate GATE score, a group discussion, and a personal interview (PI). The weightage accorded to the GATE score ranges between 75% and 85%
  • Admission into PhD - M. Tech degree is no longer required to be considered for Ph. D programmes. If the candidates have a B. Tech degree and a decent GATE score, they can apply for Ph. D programmes immediately. Research possibilities abroad, stipends throughout Ph. D courses and career prospects as an associate professor at IITs and IIITs are among the many advantages of pursuing a Ph. D. degree
  • MS Admission through GATE - If the candidates want to study abroad, they shouldn't be concerned about GRE and TOEFL scores. Some overseas colleges consider GATE scores for admission of Indian students. GATE score should not be more than 3 years old on the date the candidates apply to take admission in colleges abroad and the GATE percentage should be 90% or above
  • Job Opportunities in the State Electricity Boards - Various State Electricity Boards now accept GATE scores for recruitment purposes these days. Earlier, they used to follow an entrance-based selection process. Interested candidates can apply easily for the vacant positions through their GATE registration numbers
