GATE 2016 qualifying marks gives you the details of qualifying marks in GATE 2016 for all categories. When we take up a challenge it’s important to know how much effort is needed to just accomplish the task and what is the best effort you can give. This information help one to make many decisions during preparation and evaluate where one stands.

Overall, a million student appear for GATE exam each year. Don’t be stunned by the numbers, may be your field of engineering have may have less competition. I feel the important thing is to focus on your own preparation and compete with the highest marks. This will help you stay calm during preparation and perform better in exam. We also made an important tool called GATE Score Calculator for accurately given expected marks in different years.

In GATE 2016 Ecology and Evolution saw highest qualifying marks followed by Metallurgical and Petroleum Engineering. Just to avoid curiosity and save your time I prepared a list of qualifying or minimum marks to be considered as GATE qualified in GATE 2016 in each stream.
