I already mentioned in in my post, how much GATE score need for get into IITs, that score doesn’t give a good idea, because both the score and percentile are relative terms. The good idea would come from AIR (All India Rank). This is just to give you an idea about how much score would take you IITs, you can have a look at GATE cutoffs last year.
The following data is taken from IIT Delhi website during M.Tech 2010 admissions.
|Department Applied Mechanics||550||495||200|
|Applied Research in Electronics [CARE]||674||611||436 / 310 / 310|
|Centre for Atmospheric Sciences||400||360||200|
|Department of Chemical Engineering||509||483||350|
|Department of Chemistry||400||360||250|
|Department of Civil Engineering||342||308||248 / 268 / 260|
|Department of Computer Science and Engineering||700||630||560|
|Department of Electrical Engineering||690||650||450|
|Department of Mechanical Engineering||650||595||475 / 300 / 300|
|Department of Physics||440||395||295|
|Department of Textile Technology||400||360||266|
I strongly suggest you to target highest marks in GATE so that you get off this loop of cutoffs. I will be making IITD course wise list to give an idea about direct admission and course wise cutoffs. For cutoffs of other IITs do visit GATE Cutoff for IITs 2010.
