GATE 2022 will follow the same Covid security guidelines as GATE 2021, according to a decision taken at the 47th National Coordinating Board (NCB) -GATE 2021 meeting held on 22 May 2021, a committee was formed to look into the possibilities of adding some more. Center. Chowdhury said the committee suggested adding a few more cities across different rural areas of India for GATE 2022 exams depending on the availability of infrastructure, which could help candidates for better / easier mobility during the epidemic.
As a result increase in number of centers for GATE 2022, Krishnashree Achuthan, Dean (PG Program), Amrita University, will ensure more GATE applications as proximity is a major reason for many students who are writing exams, considering more than 60% of India’s population still lives in villages. .
Not too early to start
To overcome age and qualification barriers, GATE guidelines state that a candidate who is currently studying in the third or higher years of a bachelor’s degree program or has already completed an engineering / technology / architecture / science / commerce / government approved degree program may participate in the GATE 2022 Arts. Eligible. Stressing that this option is most suitable for exceptional students, Chowdhury said, “They can get reasonably good marks in GATE exams in the third year, then at the end of their studies in the fourth year, their admission for various prestigious higher education will be confirmed by institutions like IITs / IISc. GATE test results are valid for three years, which will greatly reduce their excitement about the future.The scheme to allow third year students to take the GATE test was re-launched in 2021 after a long gap of many years and will continue in GATE 2022.
“Since the GATE exam examines the basics, third- and fourth-year students should try to ask questions. And if they do not pass the exam, such candidates get an extra chance to try GATE without wasting a year (if they do not qualify on their first attempt), “Achuthan said. Helps to reflect their basic knowledge about and its application.
A combination of two papers
According to the notification, a GATE candidate will be allowed to appear on one or two papers of the GATE 2022 exam. However, a candidate can only select the second letter from the pre-defined combination of two papers. Chowdhury says that in addition to the main subjects / fields chosen by the students, in the future they may try to expand their field of study in different / collaborative fields. “With the opportunity to appear for the second paper in their respective areas, the opportunities for inter-departmental research and higher studies will be widened.” The two paper scheme was first launched at Gate 2021 and based on the positive feedback from the candidates, it has been further expanded to continue a few more paper combinations at Gate 2022.
Commenting on the different levels of interest among IITians giving GATE exams, Chowdhury said that a small portion of IITians appear for GATE exams and they are mainly new IIT graduates. Many IIT students follow the dual degree (BTech + MTech) program in the old IITs, appearing at the gate to qualify for the Ministry of Education (MOE) scholarship, which is given only to gate qualified candidates.
Candidates who qualify in GATE can apply for direct appointment in Central Government Group A level posts on the basis of their GATE, such as Senior Field Officer (Tele), Senior Research Officer (Crypto) and Senior Research Officer (S&T) score in Cabinet Secretariat. ; Or they could get a job at PSU. “But most of the eligible candidates in GATE go for higher education. Based on the GATE results, only a handful of GATE eligible candidates join the job, ”said Chowdhury.
In the post-Kovid era, this trend may change, as students are actively seeking to be employed to help their families, Achutan said. “They can pursue higher education if they are confident of finding good opportunities in the middle (as an internship) or at the completion of the MTech program (through placement),” he added.
Applicants with BDS and BPharm degrees can also apply for GATE 2022, an idea to start during GATE 2021. Therefore, a graduate of any branch will have the opportunity to change the field of research / higher education even after qualifying for the GATE exam, which is in line with the new National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. The idea started in GATE 2021 will encourage a holistic inter-classical education system to bring students across different influences, ”Chowdhury added.
