Usually GATE notification come in the mid of September, but this time it’s being announced earlier. As we predicted IITD will be organizing GATE 2012. One major change happened this year. Third year engineering students are not eligible for GATE 2012. Final Year Engineering students can appear for GATE. This is a good move towards a clear admission strategy for M.Tech, which I pointed in a series of posts M.Tech admissions what to consider, and What matters most in M.Tech Admissions.
