Top Marks In GATE 2011

Once you decided to take GATE 2012 you must be looking for information that will help you stay on top. Help you determine how much effort needed for preparation and kind of preparation expected and a method to evaluate where you stand. Top marks in GATE will help you see where the competition is heading and how to prepare for it. Have a look at top GATE 2010 marks to get an idea how competitive GATE is in 2012.

Trends are changing in technical education and industry. Fresh graduate, even from IITs, are appearing for GATE to try their luck and explore larger possibilities. They want to have best possible opportunities to select from before they make decisions of their future.

Having an idea about top marks will help you in evaluating your performance in GATE preparation, especially when you take practice test. It will be a good pointer to know how many marks one needs to stand in top.

Top Marks in GATE 2011

Discipline Rank Top Marks
Computer Science and Engineering and IT (CS and IT) 1 94.33
Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) 1 91.33
Electrical Engineering (EE) 1 74
Mechanical Engineering (ME) 1 87.67
Civil Engineering (CE) 1 74.33
Instrumentation Engineering (IN) 1 62.67
Chemical Engineering (CH) 1 76.33
Biotechnology (BT) 1 79

Though one should try to target the maximum marks, top marks in previous years would give an idea of how much effort is needed. In general you must score over 85 in practice test to stand in top scorers in GATE exam. Apart from all data presented here I ask every single individual to target 100 marks. You have enough time and you can make it too.

This post is a part of GATE 2012 preparation guide, do check other useful articles there. Keep concentrated and stay tuned with your aim for this year. Don’t ever think that you have enough time, time passes very fast and every second counts. Take control of your time and be the best.

  29. syed aamiruddin

    the topper cs anshul is rare exception is he had passed btech from IIT delhi in 2002 and got air 58 in IIT JEE . So now he wanna do masters so tried in Gate . but ultimately he got Admission in University of Maryland college gate campus which one of the best univ in World .
    So cant campare his ability to ours as we r too far from that .

    1. Zahid

      @ Aamiruddin, I think rank 2 have 91 marks. May be he is super genius but as zahid said its an insane competition that meets luck on the exam day. Many IITians dont make it top list because of lots of factors. We can have see how many topper are like him. this is just an outlier, all others are likes us. So there is no choice than to work hard and compete.

  30. zahid

    insane competition !!

  31. Abhinav

    Thanx! zahid sir , these posts are boon for gate aspirants, you have given all the information that can be benificial for students.
