Different institutes of IIT will have different qualification criteria for the GATE counselling.
The GATE 2017 Counselling consists of three stages namely online registration, online seat allotment and admission into allotted institutes. These three stages are explained in brief below:
Only the GATE 2017 qualifying candidates can register themselves online for GATE 2017 counselling. Once the registration is done, the candidates are required to pay the GATE 2017 counselling fee. The payment of fee confirms the candidate’s registration. The candidates are required to fill in their preferred programs and institutes once the fee is paid.
Once the candidate has completed his or her online registration, then he/ she will be allotted the seats on the basis of their GATE merit list after the various rounds of seat allotment. Once the seat is allotted to the candidate, he/ she will be required to arrive at the allotted institute for the payment of course fee.
For the purpose of admission, the candidate must bring the original documents along with them. The institute offering admission to the candidate will issue a provisional admission letter after the verification of the original documents and payment of the fee.
