The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE), 2022 Instrumentation Engineering (IN) exam was held today, in the afternoon shift, from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. IIT Kharagpur is expected to release the provisional answer keys in the third week of February. However, many online coaching institutions have released unofficial answer keys on online platforms like Youtube. Candidates will be able to calculate their rough score, but it is liable to differ from the final score.
As already mentioned, candidates can expect the official provisional answer keys around the third week of February. Along with this, the candidates’ response sheet is also likely to be released. Once the provisional answer keys are released, candidates can view them from the official website of GATE 2022, gate.iitkgp.ac.in. The candidates will also be able to raise their objections against the answer key and the response sheet, by paying a fee. After reviewing all the objections, the final answer key will be released, within the second week of March. Finally, the result will be declared on March 17, 2022.
