GATE Institutes

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is administered and conducted jointly by the IISc (Indian Institute of Science) and seven IITs (Indian Institutes of Technology) on behalf of the National Coordination Board of GATE. Each year, one of these institutes is selected as an organising institute of the GATE exam. Here are some important things to know about these GATE institutes.
