It is expected that Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay will release GATE 2021 response sheet today, on February 17, 2021. It will be released under the logins at GOAPS, appsgate.iitb.ac.in, and to download it candidates will need their email id / Enrollment ID and password.
IIT Bombay has not specified any date for the release of the response sheet. However, last year, GATE was held on February 1, 2, 8, 9 and the response sheet was released on February 12, which is 3 days from the last exam. Similarly, in the year before, IIT released response sheet on 14 February, which is 4 days after last GATE paper.
Hence, going by the trends, it can be expected that the response sheet for GATE 2021 will be released within the 3-4 days after the exam, that is on 17 or 18 February 2021. And so the challenges against the response sheets can be accepted until 20 or 21 February. The exam was held on February 06, 07, 13, and 14 this year.
The GATE 2021 response sheets have all the answers that the candidates have marked in the examination. This response sheet can be compared with the answer key that has correct answers to all questions asked in the exam. The GATE 2021 answer key will be released officially too in PDF format with the GATE question papers at gate.iitb.ac.in. However, the answer key and question paper will be out a few days later.
As per the last 2 years trends the GATE answer keys and question paper come out 9 days after the exam is over. Therefore the answer keys and question papers of GATE 2021 can be expected by 23 February 2021.
After the response sheet, answer keys and question paper have been released, the result of GATE 2021 will be declared by IIT B. It will also be released under GOAPS. The date for the announcement of the result is March 22, 2021. However, the organizing IITs declare results one day early and hence the students can expect it to release on February 21, 2021.
