GATE is one of the most competitive exams for engineering across the globe. The number of student s appear in each stream sometime cross hundred thousand. Few students spend one complete dedicated year to knock doors of IITs for master degree in engineering. By knowing that someone usually will become more curious to know about how many students appear for their stream of engineering.

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.

Just to avoid curiosity and save your time I prepared a list of students appeared in GATE 2014 in each stream.
