After GATE 2008… Guidelines for Applying Research Program.

I have posted the Result link for GATE 2008 in this page on March 15.

Basically the GATE Brochure is not clearly mentioned about the Admission details. So that I got lot of queries form Research aspirants. As a result I have given some of the guidelines. Go through it and get benefited.
Guidelines for Applying Research Program:

  • You First check your GATE Score Card, and Make sure that you are qualified or not…
  • If your Rank is around 200 you will get seat in IIT’s and IISc (For IISc there will be separate entrance examination and you should apply for that. Please visit Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (IISc)).
  • If you join IISc & IIT you will be provided with a Stipend package of Rs.9000 to 12000 per month.
  • For other universities/institution and the study center don’t worry about GATE Score and Rank. If you qualified you will be eligible to apply.
  • If you join other than IIT, Stipend package will depend on the institution/guide.
  • Before selecting your area of Research for your Ph.D., you should have overall idea about the department and institution (by logging on to the following sites:IIT-Chennai, IIT-Mumbai, IIT-Guwahati, IIT-Kanpur, IIT-Roorkee, IIT-Kharagpur, IIT-New Delhi.
  • For M.Tech & Ph.D you have to apply separately.
  • If you qualified GATE 2008 with low score, you just send an e-mail to all faculties of various universities along with your resume. Then only you can have bright chance of getting seat in that institution.

An achiever…,

ivan150.jpg My friend D.S. Ivan Jebakumar has secured 124th Rank in GATE 2008 and got 98.05 percentile in Chemistry.
About Ivan…
D.S.Ivan Jebakumar is a post graduate student of Chemistry, Bishop Heber College, Tirchy , Tamil Nadu. He is interested in doing research program. So he attempted GATE 2008 and cleared it in a great manner.

What is Next?…

He has applied for IISc Bangalore entrance examination and IIT Madras. And he is also going to apply for all other IITs soon. His advice is “If you qualified GATE (don’t worry about rank and percentile) just apply to all possible institutions. Then definitely you can get M.Tech or Ph.D in any one of those places and for people those who haven’t cleared, I wish to clear it in the next attempt”.

In this week, we have Ivan Jebakumar, as an achiever. If you have cleared GATE 2008 and want your name to be there in next week instead of Ivan Jebakumar. Please write to us along with your bio data, copy of GATE score (rank & percentile) & photograph. Please indicate “GATE Achiever” as your e-mail subject. Otherwise your e-mail will be automatically rejected.

Resources for GATE admission details:

In this forum (not loading today) you can get the details about the admissions for M.Tech and Ph.Ds. It is the only forum available for the GATE exam. But it will not satisfy you at all. So we have given guidelines here.

I thank Vijay Solomon & Sakkaravarthi (GATE Qualified) for their kind help in the preparation of Guidelines.
