The results of the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) 2019, conducted by IIT Madras, were declared on Friday.

Appear for Non-GATE government job exams

GATE is one of the most preferred exams among undergraduate candidates to join NITs, IITs, and secure PSU jobs as well.

However, candidates who have not been able to clear GATE can apply to various jobs for which separate exams are conducted. Some of the Non-GATE jobs include those at AAI, ISRO, BARC, BEL, ECIL, etc. for which exams similar to GATE are conducted.

#2

Join institutes, universities that conduct their own entrance exams

Candidates who have not qualified for GATE can also join institutes and universities that have their own entrance exams for postgraduate programs. They include BITS Pilani, IIIT Hyderabad, IIIT Bangalore, CSIR, DAIICT, and ISI Kolkata among others.

So, even if a candidate has not been able to crack the GATE, they can join postgraduate courses at such institutes or universities.
