CUT-OFF

GATE Cut off 2021, Paper wise Cut Off for IITs, NITs, IIITs and Top Institutes

IIT Bombay will release GATE 2021 cut off soon after the release of result in the month of March 2021. For all 27 papers, separate GATE cut off will be released which will also vary from subject to subject and for each category. GATE cut off is the minimum marks that you need to score to qualify the exam. Since the exam will be conducted in multiple sessions with different difficulty levels, the normalization method will be used for GATE Score Calculation.

The participating institutes will decide their own cut off to select the candidates for a course. Other than M.Tech admissions, students who score marks higher than GATE cutoff are often recruited into highly paid jobs offered by many PSUs. GATE Scorecard will be issued to only those candidates who score equal to or more than the qualifying cut off of GATE 2021.

Aspirants must not get confused between GATE rank and score. Suppose a student who gets marks around 67 and GATE score around 810 is likely to get rank near 170 in Electronics and Communication Engineering. Similarly, a candidate expecting the rank under 1000 has good chances of getting into a preferred branch in NITs. Although, a student must prepare for an interview and GD in order to proceed in the admission process.
