GATE Advice to Low Scorers
#5
It seems that you are looking for good universities abroad to carry out your post graduate studies. It is a good option as getting into top institutes in India i.e. in IITs and IISc and study M. Tech in top subjects is a difficult task because of the extreme competition. It is easier to get into Master of Engineering programs in European countries such as Germany, France or other countries as education is free and you can get good scholarships. Apart from Europe you can also look for universities in Australia, US, Canada, New Zealand etc. 

But, you have to look at the University websites carefully for eligibility criteria as they may vary from University to University. In general a good academic score is required with other examinations like GRE, TOEFL or IELTS. Universities of UK and Australia do not require GRE.

As for GATE score validity in foreign countries, Universities in Singapore (NTU & NUS) and Germany (TUM & RWTH) accept GATE scores. Go to the following links:-

I have got an AIR 215 in Biotechnology.Can i get IIT Kanpur or IIT Bombay?

Hi Tyson,

You should get a call from IIT Kanpur. Apply at some other department (apart from Biomedical Engg in IITB) to get a call from IITB. Centre for Environmental Sciences / Dept of Chemical Engg can be options. IITB's Biomedical Engg course often asks for GATE score of above 600, so getting a call from IITB is often difficult. Let's hope for a lenient cut-off this year.

Best wishes

Hello Sri,

Your percentile should be above 95 (assuming a footfall of minimum 10,000 students in GATE BT). At this percentile you have healthy chances of getting calls from IITK, IITM, IITKgp and IIT Guwahati.

As per my experience, prospects of getting call from IITB are bleak. But if you really want to pursue a course in IITB, then you may apply at CTARA of IITB.

And as I advice to every above 90 percentiler, do not loose this opportunity of applying at NUS (GATE cut-off just 90 percentile). You will get an interview call for sure if you support your application with strong LORs.

Hope it helps

Let me know if you have some other query.

Best Regards

Sunil
