GATE 2022 counselling will be conducted by two different bodies Common Offer Acceptance Portal (COAP) and Centralised Counselling for MTech (CCMT) for admission to IITs, NITs, IIITs, GFTIs and CFTIs. There is no centralised counselling process for GATE. Candidates who will qualify the exam can participate in the counselling procedure conducted by these two separate bodies for admission to an institute. A brief about the same is as below:

COAP (Common Offer Acceptance Portal): COAP will conduct the counselling for admission to MTech courses offered by IITs. COAP 2022 counselling schedule has been announced by IIT Bombay. It has been updated on this page below under Dates section.

CCMT (Centralised Counselling for MTech): CCMT is for admission to MTech programmes offered by NITs, IIITs, GFTIs, and CFTIs.

State and private universities will conduct their own counselling based on GATE 2022 result. COAP is not an application portal for MTech admission at IITs. Along with the online registration on COAP’s website, candidates will need to complete the online registration process for the respective institute based on their preference and rank in the exam. The conducting body of GATE will not organise any counselling and seat allotment process for MTech admissions. After the result declaration, participating institutes will release their admission cut off. Candidates qualifying GATE cutoff can participate in the counselling process conducted by respective bodies’ basis on their choice of college and branch of study.

Wondering what the next steps are after GATE results? Listen to what the previous years’ toppers have to say about this. Join us on 25th March at 5PM.

There are plenty of students who do not join any class either physically or online but still get through this examination with flying colors. What is required is the application of mind and perseverance and the hard work of studies and studies. On this platform, a counselor cannot recommend any particular establishment for taking coaching from for the simple reason that it may amount to promoting that establishment. Hence I would like to advise you to either seek counsel from your friends or Google for any information that you are seeking in this respect. Best wishes to you.
