    I have applied for GATE 2014.i filled in all the mandatory details and made the payment.I downloaded the application form and found that the signature was partly visible. At the time of uploading the scanned signature, I was able to view the signature properly and I didn’t see any error.Please suggest me what should I do next. Is my form going to be rejected because of this? Do I need to apply again ?Please help me on this.
    I can see the status as “Application Submitted.Payment verified. Make sure that the hard copy of your application reaches the Zonal GATE Office by 10th October, 2013. Application will not be accepted after 10th October, 2013 under any circumstances including postal delays.”
    Can my application be rejected even after submission of application.

But still on Application status its showing online submitted. I checked in IISC bangalore on 8th in evening, they told that they have lots of forms, so it will take some time to get updated. Now its 10th Oct and still not showing the correct status.
    I am not sure what to do. On IISC gate helpline, nobody is picking the call. Please guide me what action I need to take.

  21. Minthang

    Sir,please reply to my query.
    I have mistakenly used blue ink instead of black ink for signature in the GATE application form.Wil my form be rejected or there will be provision to resend the application form after scrutiny.

    Am very much worried about it as I realised this only after sending the application form.If the application is liable to be rejected then preparing for GATE would be futile.

    Waiting for your feeedback

    i have a uploaded a photo with white background but i attached a same photo with back ground and sent the application what should i do now ??

    1. Poornima

      Just wait for the status update. They will inform you through mail once the scrutiny of your application is completed, check and find out if it is in order. If there is any mismatch or problem, they will ask you to resend with a copy of the email they send after scrutiny. No need to worry !

  34. Preetham

    Hi, i have completed my BE in 2012 june, what is the procedure for filling online Gate application form , should i upload Provisional Degree Certificate , what else is needed for fraduated student ,i am feeling a bit confused , please any one help..

  35. Poornima

    A new option to re-upload photo and signature is now made available!

  36. Poornima

    Thank You, Rohit. Wish You too Good Luck!

  37. Poornima

    A very good analysis of the changes. Thank You.
    Yes, I too would like to know if one could submit more than a single form. Or else, if at any case the photo or sign becomes unacceptable, will those be intimated later with a provision to upload the same? Because last year there was a provision to resend defective applications, I guess.

    1. Rohit

      I got my answer and glad to tell you that before paying the fee one surely can register more than once till he gets registered with successfully fulfilling all requirements ๐Ÿ™‚
      But paying two times is a foolish thing so if you have paid for first registered form no need to take headache as you said there will a provision for correction like last year.
      Applications are not rejected on the basis of registering more than once as anybody can register via fake information, it’s only after mailing the hard-copy registration completes.
      I have tried hundreds of times to contact IITB but their line is so much busy that I can’t got a chance so what I did was to contact coaching institutes like IES made easy, professional group by faking that I am their student :):) to make sure that one can re-register because it’s not the case in most exams.
      Good luck.

  38. Rohit

    Can the same person register online for gate more than once using different email ID due to submitting first form with wrong photograph or signature size or any other reason?
    I am confused as no such thing is mentioned in the brochure. It just says that –
    1. one ID canโ€™t be used to submit multiple forms.
    2. once form submitted canโ€™t be changed.
    Moreover IITB is giving no concrete answer.

  39. sathya

    Thanks you so much for the blog ๐Ÿ™‚ and I really admire ur efforts! I need a more clear info about gate validity.If the Gate score validity is changed to one year from Gate2014, does it mean that Gate2013 scores would not be valid for Gate2015 M.Tech summer admissions?
