We are living in competitive world and GATE one of the most competitive exams, where few fields of engineering have over hundred thousand students taking up this exam. There are multiple factors for it. The first one is that many students are not satisfied with their level of knowledge at Engineering level. Second important motivation is PSUs offering jobs based on performance in GATE exam.
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 Mechanical Engineering saw highest number of students appearing followed by Electronics and computer science. Just to avoid curiosity and save your time I prepared a list of students appeared in GATE 2016 in each stream.
