GATE 2020 Cut-off

Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi will release the GATE 2020 cut-off alongside the GATE 2020 Result. The GATE 2020 cut-off is the minimum qualifying marks that candidates must secure for admission to postgraduate programmes (M.E., M.Tech, MS, Direct PhD) offered at institutes of national importance, including IITs, NITs, and IISc, etc. GATE cut-offs are released in three categories – minimum qualifying marks for each stream, the institute-wise cut-off score for admission, and the cut-off for PSUs. The cut-off for each subject paper will be announced separately. Therefore, there is no common counselling for GATE qualifiers. All the participating institutes will consider the GATE 2020 scores for admission.

The GATE 2020 result will be declared in the month of March along with the cut-off for GATE 2020 that has come up with a surprise package. A drastic change has been noticed in the cutoff mechanism of GATE 2020. The released cut-offs have crossed all the previous records with increased cut-offs declared for the candidates. The increase has been noticed in all the engineering branches as compared to the GATE 2019 cut-offs. In 2019 the cut-off for the Electrical Engineering stream was 29.1 which increased to 39.6 in 2019. Similarly, the cut-offs for other streams have also increased with an exception in the cut-off of the Mechanical Stream that declined from 34.7 to 34.1 in 2019. The details of the newly released cut-offs have been given below in the write-up in the form of a table. Candidates must refer to this table and prepare accordingly for the respective Participating Colleges that would accept the secured cut-offs.

Candidates who want to be considered for admission in these institutes must secure the requisite GATE cut-off 2020 scores, which is above the defined cut-off. An important aspect for the candidates to keep in mind is that the qualifying cut-off of GATE published by IIT Delhi is not the same as the admission cut-off, which is usually set independently by the institutions. GATE cut-off 2020 is determined by various factors such as exam difficulty and the number of candidates who have appeared for the exam, previous year’s cut-off, seat intake, etc. Candidates who score above the GATE cut-off are called for the counselling rounds conducted individually by the participating colleges. Through the cut-offs of previous years, the candidates will also understand what score they need to qualify in their chosen subject.
