What is the GATE?
The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is a compulsory requirement to seek admission into Masters and Doctoral programs in Engineering, Technology and Architecture as well as Doctoral programs in some Science courses in IITs, IISc and other government-supported institutes.
Some other institutes of higher education have also mandated GATE for admissions.
Many PSUs seek GATE scores in job appointments.

Only 16% candidates cleared the GATE 2017
In 2017, just 1,29,149 candidates of the 7,87,148 who appeared for the exam, or 16%, cleared the GATE. The previous year, it was 15%.
GATE organizing chairman GJ Chakrapani called the numbers "not very good", but insisted the difficulty level is reasonable. The qualifying mark of 25 is also not high, he added.
"Maybe students aren't taught well or maybe they're not serious enough."
