FAQs

  • Yes, depending upon the IIT, you can get a seat for the courses. However, it is quite unlikely to get admitted to IITs with a low GATE score. On the second round of counselling, you might get admission.

  • To get admission into IITs, students must get a rank under 200 in GATE. Although a GATE score with a rank near 1000 can be enough to get admission to the IITs. Many students ranked below 2000 in branches like CS, ME, ECE, and EE, can also get IIT but not a branch of their choice.

  • GATE PH rank under 1000 is generally required to get admission into IITs. However, the data may change with year and institute. Many students who have ranked below 5000 in branches like CS, ME, ECE, and EE, can also get IIT but not a branch of their choice.

  • Yes, to get admission for the master's in IITs, you must clear GATE. Only good GATE scores are required for admission into IITs.GATE rank under 500 is generally required to get admission into IITs in the CS branch.

  • It depends on your branch. E.g., If you are a mech student and have scored 480 scores in GATE 2022, you can get into IITs and NITs, but interdisciplinary branches or the new IITs.
