GATE Previous Years’ Cut off (2017, 2016, 2015) - NIT, IIT and other institutes

GATE or Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering is a common entrance test for aspiring students of science, engineering, architecture and technology. Mentioned below, you will be provided with an overview of the GATE 2017 cut off marks across different institutions, branches and categories and the previous years cut off marks as well.

GATE Previous Years Cut off - NIT, IIT and other institutes

The admission to these institutes is not secured by simply qualifying GATE exam. Each IIT has their own cutoffs and they make the process more selective by choosing their students only after individual counselling. On the other hand, the NIT institutes conduct their assessment of potential students based on their own GATE cutoffs and afterwards via the CCMT counselling.

IITs, NITs, courses offered and cut off variation on the basis of categories (SC/ST/GEN/OBC/PWD)

All the major postgraduate programs offered by the IITs and the NITs are more or less covered by the GATE papers. The most sought-after courses are mechanical engineering, civil engineering, computer science and engineering, electrical engineering and electronics and communication engineering. The seven organising IITs at Kharagpur, Mumbai, Delhi, Kanpur, Chennai, Guwahati and Roorkee along with the other ones have set their cut offs at different levels. The cut off marks also vary from one category to another. General, OBC, SC/ST all have separate cut-offs.

Branch wise cut off with candidates appeared and the categories

In the tables below, the GATE cut off 2017, 2016 and 2015 marks are given. The tables include the main five engineering subjects. These cut-offs vary among the categories and determine the minimum score a candidate has to secure to be considered for any merit list.
