GATE 2017 NEWS

NATIONAL LEVEL ONLINE TEST

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering, GATE is conducted every year for admission into post-graduate programmes in various institutes across India. The exam is conducted every year by one of the IITs or IISc. **IIT Roorkee** is the organizing institute for **GATE**** Exam** this year. Various **Public Sector Undertakings** also use the **GATE Score** for the purpose of shortlisting candidates for various job openings.
