Number of candidates registered and appeared in GATE 2019 gives you all statistical information about GATE 2019. We have been collecting GATE stats for a quite a long time. If you are curious about the previous GATE Stats do visit GATE stats at ini. All information is collected from GATE organizing institutes.

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 2019 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 2019 in each stream. Overall number of candidates applied for GATE 2019 was less than GATE 2016, specially in mechanical, electronics and electronics engineering.
