    Re: Is it compulsory to give GATE exam before going for PSU jobs?

    Few companies like NTPC, BHEL only accepts GATE score while applying for engineering trainne post
    They shortlist candidates on the basis of GATE scores only for the interview

    But many PSU conduct their own written exams like SAIL, ONGC and the written exams is follwed by the interview
    But these PSU asks for a min %age of marks in BE/BTECH that is 65% marks

    So its better to give the GATE 2013 exams
    This exam will be held in jan 2013 and feb 2013
    forms are being filled for GATE from 1st sep 2012 and last date to apply for GATE is 30th sep 2012
    this Year GATE is being conducted by IIT mumbai

    Few PSUs recruited through GATE 2012.PSUs such as NTPC,IOCL,BHEL recruited through GATE.This year the list may extend.But it is not the only way to get into PSUs.Several other PSUs conducts their own examination and are not linked to GATE in any way.PSUs such as ONGC,SAIL,CIL,ECIL,BEL,NHPC,BSNL,DRDO etc recruits through their own exams.You should anyways prepare very well for GATE.By this,you will have a chance to score high in GATE and get into the PSUs recruiting through GATE.And also the syllabus of GATE is similar to other PSUs exam and hence you need not prepare differently for other PSUs.

    HI.........
    It is not necessary to give GATE exam to get a job in PSU's. Almost all PSU's conduct their own exam or written test in place of GATE to provide candidate to be part of the leading PSU's in the India. Though some of the PSU's not conduct written Exam but most of the companies do.
    so you have another chance to get into PSU's other than GATE.
    For written test you have to first register for the notification regarding the written exam. After that Written exam will be conducted and it followed by interview and/or Group Discussion. So you have to prepare according to that.
    So if you get less marks in GATE you can appear in written test of particular company.
    good luck

    Hello,

    It is not compulsory to give GATE exam to get a job in PSUs.
    But through GATE you can get advantage of appearing in all the PSUs
    through a single exam directly to the interview.

    Otherwise you will have to prepare for all the PSUs separately and appear for them
    So giving GATE and clearing it with good percentile increases your chances of
    fulfilling your dream of getting a job in PSU.

    If your GATE score is not good then you can apply for them separately.
    Almost all of them conduct their exams.
    So prepare well and succeed.

    Good Luck.

    hello friend

    Though the essential qualification for the job in psu is B.Tech/B.E with minimum 65% mark but it will be better if you have GATE.

    these companies conduct their own written test and then the shortlist candidates are called for the interview. so at the time of interview the more preference will be given to those candidate who have gate score. So i would personally suggest you to appear for the GATE 2013 which is going to happen in Jan-Feb 2013

    See GATE will be useful to you not only in getting job but also for higher education like M.Tech or integrated ph.D. so you need not to drop a year for that better you revise the syllabus of 3rd year and final year and just refer some old question paper

    wish you all the best..................

    Hai

    GATE exam is not compulsory for all PSU jobs.

    -> But when you applying for some companies ,GATE exam qualification is mandatory

    And for almost all oil companies GATE exam qualification is very important.

    -> Some colleges/institutes specify GATE exam as mandatory qualification even for admission of self financing students.

    ->If you pass with goo score in GATE exam,then you can get more priority in the interviews

    It is not necessary or essential to give Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE). But their is no harm if you apply for the same and appear in the exam and score good marks. It's more benefical to you and opens many more job opportunities. Many PSU's uses the Gate as the basis to select the candidates whereas they are some other PSU's which conduct their own entrance exam in order to select the candidate for the interview. So if you score good in Gate, you will be given more priority than others in the selection process.
