GATE Exam Info

IIT Roorkee is GATE 2017 Organizing Institute

Any student preparing for GATE exam would first look for GATE organizing institute. I have been collecting information regarding GATE organizing for over decades. The answe to the question is GATE 2017 will be organized by IIT Roorkee, in case there is no inclusion in GATE organizing institutes if they follow GATE organizing institutes Year wise list. In case of new IITs joining GATE organizing league (which I don’t think will happen this year) things can change. If that happens I will inform you in coming posts.

As I mentioned previously, GATE organizing institute do not directly correlate to the toughness of GATE paper that year. As GATE question paper is not prepared by the organizing institute. A Committee of professors will do it and totally depends of the question they receive and select. After GATE being made a computer based test and carried in different sets it become more clear that whoever organizes gate will affect the toughness of the paper.

The overall coordination and responsibility of conducting GATE exam will be responsibility of one of the 8 organizing institutes. GATE organizing Institute only has the responsibility of making a collection of questions or suggested questions from their counterparts (other IITs and IISc). Finally these collections are used to make GATE papers. So please don’t make it a point to worry and think this time paper will be tough or easy.

Trying to know for a curiosity is okay but the real essence is in what you do after knowing who is organizing. The best thing is to leave it aside and start preparing for GATE. Stay focused, whoever conducts it let them, and you need to crack it the best way possible. The significance of organizing institute is next to negligible. Prepare for the worst possible conditions. You have time, plan and use it the best possible way.

Additionally there is an official tender notice by IISc Bangalore for GATE organizing institute in 2017 please refer this for updates.

Hopefully when I make GATE 2017 Preparation guide I will add this info there. The guide will also include M.Tech admissions 2016 analysis.

  2. Ashis Acharya

    Hello sir. My name is Ashis Acharya. My date of birth is 06/12/1992. I completed my B-TECH in Instrumentation Engineering in the year 2014 from a small private college. I really interested in doing research (m-tech and phd). I appeared GATE 2015 (could not qualify) and GATE 2016 (secured less marks to get admissions into IITs) but could not make it into IIT/IISc. I think I will again appear GATE 2017. Many people are saying that there is an age limit to get into IIT for m-tech. Also I know that for most PSUs jobs the age limit is 25 to 27 years. My question is, is there any age limit for doing M-TECH in IIT/IISc? Please guide me by giving the correct information. I am little bit scared and confused.
