GATE Cutoff for Admission – Qualifying GATE 2017 will not ensure admission in IITs, NITs, and CFTIs. Each institute will determine its own cutoff for the admission. The admission in IITs will be done on the basis of cutoff determined by individual IIT. However, NITs and CFTIs will grant admission through Centralized Counselling for M.Tech/M.Arch/M.Plan (CCMT). The cutoff for each institute is mentioned in the Previous Year GATE Cutoff section below.

GATE Cutoff for Recruitment –  Just like the institute, the PSUs will also determine individual cutoff. The PSU Recruitment through GATE  cutoff can be checked below. However, candidates should note that some PSU will consider the raw score of the candidates, whereas, some will determine the GATE 2017 Cutoff as per the normalised score.

Previous Year GATE Cutoff

Every year, GATE is conducted by an IIT or IISc. Each conducting body considered the factors above and determines the cutoff for the exam. Though the GATE Cutoff usually varies, but never changes excessively. Hence, candidates should check it to draw an idea about it.
