GATE 2018 NEWS
NATIONAL LEVEL ONLINE TEST
GATE 2017 is held every year for candidates seeking admission to postgraduate engineering programs. It will be conducted in online mode as a Computer Based Test. The exam will have multiple choice questions and candidates will be given 3 hours to complete the exam.
There will be total 65 questions and a candidate can score maximum 100 marks in the exam. No marks will be deducted for any wrong answer. GATE 2017 will be held in 2 shifts (Morning and Afternoon).

|GATE Preparation Tips||GATE Practice Papers|
It is very important for a candidate to practice GATE 2017 Previous Year Papers for Biotechnology so that they can idea regarding the type of questions asked in the exam. It also helps in improving the speed of the candidate. The candidate must practice using a stop watch to improve the speed. Take a note of the mistakes done and try not to repeat them again.
