GATE Cutoff

Course Wise GATE Cutoff for IIT Kharagpur

Marks are cutoff for M.Tech admission to IITs would give a great insight for GATE preparations. On the same time I feel that it cannot solely taken as a parameter for M.Tech admissions to IITs, as marks totally depends on the GATE paper that year. If the paper is easy student get higher marks and if papers if tough students will get less marks. Please refer to GATE 2010 Analysis for more details.

I would recommend you to have a look on GATE highest marks and GATE qualifying marks to get a better insight into the marks you need to be called good GATE score.
