    GATE is an entrance examination for seeking admission to engineering colleges to pursue Masters Degree in engineering or masters in technology or masters in architecture. Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering is abbreviated as GATE. GATE is conducted in eight specific zones based on the location of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). The overall control and coordination of GATE currently lies with IIT, Mumbai.

    Exam pattern:

    GATE is conducted in a total of 21 papers; however one can appear only in one paper. Candidates generally apply for that paper in which he or she has completed the undergraduate studies. GATE in Life Sciences is quite popular and is hugely taken by candidates.
