GATE 2022 exam is scheduled to be held on February 05, 06, 12 and 13, 2021 for the candidates who have applied successfully. The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering is one of the best ways to get employment in the country’s top PSUs.
For 2022, IIT Kharagpur is the conducting body and the examination is going to be held for a total of 29 papers from engineering courses. The authorities have also introduced two new papers from this year onwards namely, Geomatics Engineering, Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering,
GATE exam has been the top choice among fresh Engineering graduates owing to the numerous perks and benefits they get upon selection. However, this year there is scepticism amid the candidates whether they should apply for the GATE 2022. The major reason for this is the decision of the government to privatise top PSUs.
Although, privatisation is one of the most important factors that is holding back numerous students from filling the application form apart from this, change in the coaching class scenario is also one of the major factors that is attributing to it. With good quality coaching classes available online, study material and reduction in the overall cost of acquiring better quality guidance for the GATE exams have reduced the overall competition.
This has eventually led to a reduction in the number of candidates attending the examination annually. However, it is not going to reduce the overall cut off marks. Hence, candidates have to put in extra hard work and practice if they are serious about cracking the GATE 2022 exam.
For those candidates who do not wish to attend full-fledged coaching classes, resorting to free study material available on the internet will do the needful. However, for those who wish to go an extra mile for their preparation, attending a crash course would also work. Since GATE 2022 examination is only 5 months away and they would also need to go for a proper revision before the exam.
GATE 2022 is a 3-hour duration computer-based test asking 65 questions, out of which 15 questions are from GA and the rest 50 are from subjects opted by the candidate. The questions will be partially in the form of MCQ and partially numerical based questions The total marks assigned to each group is 100 marks since questions are of either 1 mark or 2 marks. For 1 mark questions, a deduction of 1/3rd of the total marks is applicable but for 2 marks questions, a deduction of ⅔ rd of total marks will be done in case of wrong answers.
