UGC Implements PG Scholarship

by / Friday, 23 January 2015 / Published in Blog

On February 27, 2014, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has announced a Post Graduate Scholarship for engineering graduates who have qualified the GATE exam. The PG scholarship is meant for those who wish to pursue Masters of Engineering (ME) or Masters of Technology (M. Tech) in any of the colleges in India. This decision came in wake of the Supreme Court’s decision that took away most of the authoritarian powers of the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) which used to provide GATE qualified students with a scholarship of Rs. 8,000 per month.

Other Advantages of Appearing for the GATE Exams

GATE exams are jointly conducted by the IITs and IISc. On the basis of the GATE score, students get admission in premiere educational institutions in India. Qualifying the exam will make you eligible to apply in the IITs, NITs, IISc and PE University of Engineering. In fact, GATE 2015 is bound to be more competitive, as other institutes like UIET are beginning to recognize the GATE score as their sole admission criterion for engineering based PG courses. One can now hope for a UGC scholarship while pursuing these PG courses anywhere in the country.

In 2013, 15 public sector units (PSUs) used the GATE score as an eligibility criterion to offer certain jobs. Within a year, this number had risen to 17 PSU.

So, whether you wish to pursue higher studies in a leading engineering institute or are keen on a challenging and growth oriented job in the largest PSUs in India, appearing for and qualifying GATE 2015 has become the door for entry.

Why Opt for GATE Coaching?
In 2013, merely 13% students appearing for GATE cleared these competitive exams. In 2014, a total of almost 9 lakh students appeared for the GATE exam, while less than 1.5 lakhs cleared it. The competition seems to be getting tougher with passing time. Against this backdrop, GATE coaching can help in several ways. From getting you up-to-date with the GATE syllabus to clearing all your doubts about the fundamentals, the benefits are many. Also, from providing the right study materials to offering online test papers, there are many advantages. GATE coaching would also help you remain disciplined while you prepare for GATE 2015, give you access to tips and tricks to solve questions and even help you after you have cleared your GATE exam.

The GATE exam tests how in-depth your knowledge is about the stream you have chosen. GATE coaching will help you get the required competitive edge over your counterparts.
