GATE 2020 registrations

GATE 2020: Out of 8,59,048 registered candidates for the Graduate Aptitude Test for Engineering (GATE), 684,903 (79.73%) candidates appeared in various sessions of the exam conducted at 566 centres of 199 cities across India.

 GATE 2020 was conducted successfully on February 1, 2, 8, and 9 across India and at international centers: Dubai, Singapore, Ethiopia, Nepal, and Dhaka. In 2020, GATE was conducted by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi.

One of the biggest challenges this year for organizing authority was to conduct the test in Jammu & Kashmir after removal of article 370, declaration of a state emergency in Kerala due to coronavirus, and overlap of exam date with the election date in Delhi, etc.

This is for the first time that candidates were given the choice of choosing Srinagar as the GATE examination centre. A total of 5,102 candidates preferred Srinagar as an examination city for the exam. 11 test centres were identified to accommodate all candidates in Srinagar to facilitate them by avoiding travel outside the valley in harsh and unpredictable weather. Out of the registered candidates, 4,046 (79.30%) candidates in Srinagar and out of 5,424 registered candidates, 4,270 (78.70%) candidates in Jammu wrote the examination.

40 faculty members (Institute Representatives) went to Srinagar for conducting GATE 2020 at eleven centres on scheduled dates. None of the internet dependent examination processes were delayed even by a few minutes at all eleven centres in Srinagar.

IIT Delhi has also released the GATE 2020 response sheet for all the candidates who have taken. All appeared students are need to login to the GOAPS website to download the response sheet.
