Benefits of Evaluating the Previous Year’s XE Cutoff

The previous year’s cutoff will give all the XE aspirants a preliminary idea of what marks are needed to qualify for the exam. You must be aware that GATE XE comes full of opportunities and benefits as follows:

  • You can achieve a rank below 100 with only 60+ marks, which opens the door to IIT Bombay and IIT Madras.
  • The syllabus is constrained; even 3rd-year mechanical students can prepare within 2–3 months and score well.
  • After scoring a good rank (which is easily possible as competition is low), you can join top IITs in core branches like thermal or manufacturing in IIT Madras.
  • Since no PSUs recruit via GATE XE, you are allowed to join NITIE Mumbai through GATE XE, which is no less than a PSU.

If you are a mechanical student and wondering what are career opportunities offered by GATE XE, then you must watch a session by Dheeraj Sardana Sir, where he explained in detail all the possible career options after clearing GATE XE and what are the benefits of opting for GATE XE 2023.
