Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is a national level examination that tests the comprehensive understanding of the candidates in various undergraduate subjects in Engineering/Technology/Architecture and post-graduate level subjects in Science. The GATE score is used for admissions to post-graduate programs (e.g, M.E., M.Tech., direct Ph.D.) in Indian institutes of higher education with financial assistance provided by MHRD and other Government agencies. The score is also used by many Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) for employment screening purposes. The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs at Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee) jointly administer the conduct of GATE.


IISc, Bangalore was the Organizing Institute for GATE 2016. The GATE 2016 results have been released on 19th March 2016. The candidates can access the results by logging onto the GATE Online Application Processing System (GOAPS) website.
