GATE 2022 Eligibility

Before starting the application process, the candidate must ensure that he/she meets the educational eligibility criteria of GATE 2022.

A candidate who is currently studying in the 3rd or higher years of any undergraduate degree program OR has already completed any government-approved degree program in Engineering / Technology / Architecture / Science / Commerce / Arts is eligible for appearing in the GATE 2022 exam.

GATE is NOT an admission ensuring examination. Qualifying in GATE examination does NOT guarantee admission/scholarship. Admission to any institute is fully dependent on the admitting institute's criteria for educational qualification. Similarly, GATE qualification does not assure a Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) job, as it depends on the recruitment procedure of the concerned PSU. GATE committee is NOT liable for any legal obligations related to admission/job.

Some of the Professional Societies/Institutions, which conduct examinations in various fields of engineering, are as follows.

1• The Institution of Engineers (India) (IE)
2• The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)
3• The Institution of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers (IETE)
4• The Aeronautical Society of India (AeSI)
5• The Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers, including Polymer and Environmental Group (IIChemE)
6• The Indian Institute of Metals (IIM)
7• The Indian Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIIE)

However, the candidates who possess certification from any of the professional societies must ensure that those examinations conducted by the societies are approved by MoE/AICTE/UGC/UPSC as equivalent to B.E. / B.Tech. / B.Arch. / B.Planning, etc.

• Candidates who have obtained/are pursuing their qualifying degree from countries other than India:
• Must be currently in the 3rd or higher years or completed their Bachelor’s degree (duration: at least 3 years) in Engineering / Technology / Science / Arts / Commerce.
• Details of eligibility criteria are given in the table. However, any candidate fulfilling the above-mentioned criteria is eligible to appear for GATE 2022.
Note: If a candidate is pursuing any higher degree or has already obtained a degree higher than that mentioned in the table, the candidate will be allowed to appear in GATE 2022 examination.
