    Unfortunately,BCA candidates are not allowed to appear in Gate exam.You need to be B.Tech in any of the branches or M.Sc in Physics,Chemistry,Life science,Microbiology,Biochemistry etc to be eligible for the exam of GATE.You can check for all other details related to Gate in websites of any of the IITs.

    Re: Can a BCA student appear in Gate Examination?

    Unluckily,BCA ctudents cannot appear in Gate examination.
    GATE is Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering.
    Eligibility for GATE Exam:
    • **either Bachelor degree holders in Engineering/Technology/Architecture
    • **either Master degree holders in any branch of Science/Mathematics/Statistics/Computer Applications
    • **either Candidates in the second or higher year of the Four-year Integrated Master degree programme (Post-B.Sc.) in Engineering/Technology.
    Only these candidates can apply.
    the only thing needed is talent and hard work to crack the GATE.

    for Gate as there is no age limit
    and no number of attempts defined in GATE exam.
    and also there is no minimum percentage criteria.

    Hi friend,

    I am sorry , but you can not appear for gate examination as only engineering graduates are allowed to appear in this exam.

    GATE exam is for master degree in engineering so; it is prerequisite that a person should hold bachelor degree in engineering.

    Instead you can try for MCA. Itís a good option and many MNCs higher highly qualified MCA professionals every year. Also you will be able to stay in technical/computer field after doing MCA.

    There are lots of good colleges for MCA are available. You can write entrance exam of any of them and get through.

    So, go ahead.

    For any other query, please post it here.

    Best of luck

    Regards,Ahad

    Hi Buddy,


    It is a regret to tell you that your not eligible for applying for GATE, lets check the other eligibility details.


    GATE Eligibility:


    --> You should be a Bachelor degree holder in Engineering OR Technology OR Architecture (4 years after 10+2), final year graduates can also write GATE.


    --> You should be a Master degree holder in any branch of Science/ Mathematics/ Statistics/ Computer Applications or equivalent.


    --> Second and third year MCA students are also eligible for GATE


    --> First and Second year MSc students are also eligible for GATE

    As of now you cannot apply for GATE, but if you are interested in post graduation then you can go for MCA/MBA.
    All the best.

    GATE exam is the entrance exam for pursuing masters degree technology i.e M.Tech.
    As you are a BCA student you are not eligible to give the GATE exam.You need to be an engineering graduate to be eligible to give the GATE exam.
    You should go for MCA , which is masters degree in your stream.

    Good Luck

    No friend,BCA degree holders are not eligible for writing the GATE exam.>>The eligibility criteria for GATE is 1.Person should have graduation from any recognised university. 2.Person should secure minimum 50% aggregate in academics.Those who have above qualification they can apply for GATE exam.The GATE score is more valuable for joining in M.TECH seat and for some companies eligibility criteria.Without GATE score companies like BHEL,OIL,IOCL,ONGC wont accept for applying.The GATE is conducting once in a year in the month feb.For notifications search in the internet.

    Re: Can a BCA student appear in Gate Examination?

    No you can't apply for gate exams as GATE Exam as GATE exam is only for the students of M.Tech.

    Only master degree students can apply for GATE exam.
    You should choose MCA degree to get a job in the IT sectors with a good salary after your BCA degree.

    Being a BCA student you can't apply for GATE Exam.

    Best of luck...........

    dear friend,

    No, BCA students can not apply for the GATE entrance exam .

    GATE entrance exam eligibility:

    >> you should be passed the B.tech/ B.E/ M.sc in (IT/ ECE/ Statics/maths/electrical ) with atleast 55% marks from any recognized university.

    SO if you want to give the GATE entrance exam you must be do the M.SC in ( computer science ) from any recognized university.

    After that you can give the GATE entrance exam for the job in government companies or the M.tech admission ..

    best of luck !
