GATE 2019 exam in all engineering disciplines is over by 10th Feb. Now as the exam is over, the students must plan their next strategy. One must not wait until the result is out to plan their next move. By the time result comes, you must be ready with a plan to follow. Depending on your GATE score, there are different options that you can choose from. The students might wonder What to do after GATE exam, here's the answer!

We will help you make a choice by making you aware of all possible situations and options that you can opt for in those situations.


For students with good GATE score:

What we mean by good GATE score is the score which is valid. The score that fulfills the eligibility.

  • Direct admission to M.Tech in IITs/ IISC: A few IITs take direct admissions for M.Tech through the GATE exam. IIT Bombay also gives direct admission through GATE score in a few disciplines.
  • Interview for M.Tech admission: You may need to face a personal interview for M.Tech admission. Preparing for the main subjects from the GATE syllabus would be enough to crack the interview.
  • Tech in NITs: For admission in NITs, CCMT counseling will begin in the month of May.
  • PSUs: if you are interested in taking up the job in any PSU, you need to start applying in the PSU of your interest right away. After the result, these PSUs select the candidates as per their criteria.


For Students who didn’t qualify:

It may happen that you didn’t get a good GATE score. In that case, also there are options in hand.

  • Apply for jobs that conduct a separate exam. There are many organizations which conduct their own exam.
  • Tech admissions can also be sought through universities which conduct their own entrance exam.
  • Do not lose hope. Not everyone cracks their GATE in the first attempt. Give yourself some time and utilize your experience from this year to try and give your GATE exam again.
