According to a YouTube channel named PlanetGATE, this was a totally unexpected result of the GATE 2022 Chemical Engineering paper. So far, this was the lowest cut-off that was seen in the case of the competitive aptitude test.
The results were initially supposed to be released today but the same already got announced yesterday. Candidates will be able to download the scorecards from the GOAPS portal by using their enrollment ID and password. Moreover, the qualified candidates will be eligible to seek admission to various M.Tech. courses that are offered by different institutes. The GATE 2022 scores will be valid for a period of three years. After that, no information will be available regarding the same. Candidates who could not secure the required cut-off marks can appear for the examination again in 2023.
With the declaration of the GATE 2022 results, candidates now have multiple options to choose their course of professional career. The first and the most obvious option is to pursue post-graduation in the top institutes such as NITs, IITs and IIITs in the country. With time, these institutes will start releasing the admission criteria and cut-offs for admission.
The next and a viable option after qualifying for GATE 2022 is to seek for PSU recruitment. There are many Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) that conduct their recruitment process via the GATE 2022 scores. Lastly, many candidates appear for the exam for higher studies in foreign countries.
