    Dear friend,

    there is no age limit for writing GATE exam , you can give this exam any number of times and students of pre-final year of graduate degree are not eligible for GATE 2012

    and all you need is have a pass in bachelor's degree in engineering/technology/architecture or masters degree in science/maths/statistics/computer applications are eligible foe GATE 2012.

    To appear for this exam there is no age limit. So you can apply for this exam if you full fill the education qualification requirement. Candidates with a bachelor's degree Engineering or Architecture can apply. Candidates with even M.Sc or MCA degree too can apply. M.Sc students should have specialised in Statistics, Computer Application or Science. Candidates who obtained qualification like AMIE, AMICE can also apply. Even candidates who are in the final year of the course can apply.
