Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all India examination administered and conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven Indian Institutes of Technology on behalf of the National Coordination Board - GATE, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India.

  Date of Online Examination: 29-01-2012 (Sunday)  Date of Offline Examination: 12-02-2012 (Sunday)


The GATE committee, which comprises of representatives from the administering institutes, is the sole authority for regulating the examination and declaring the results.

GATE is conducted through the constitution of eight zones. The zones and the corresponding administrative institutes are:

      Zone-1: Indian Institute of Science,Bengaluru
      Zone-2: Indian Institute of Technology,Bombay
      Zone-3: Indian Institute of Technology,Delhi
      Zone-4: Indian Institute of Technology,Guwahati
      Zone-5: Indian Institute of Technology,Kanpur
      Zone-6: Indian Institute of Technology,Kharagpur
      Zone-7: Indian Institute of Technology,Madras
      Zone-8: Indian Institute of Technology,Roorkee

The overall coordination and responsibility of conducting GATE 2012 lies with Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, designated as the Organizing Institute for GATE 2012 .
Admission to postgraduate programmes with MHRD and some other Government scholarships/assistantships in engineering colleges/institutes is open to those who qualify in GATE examination. GATE qualified candidates with Bachelor's degree in Engineering/Technology/Architecture or Master's degree in any branch of Science/Mathematics/Statistics/Computer Applications are eligible for admission to Master's degree programmes in Engineering/Technology/Architecture as well as for Doctoral programmes in relevant branches of Science with MHRD or other government scholarships/assistantships. To avail the scholarship, the candidate must secure admission to such a postgraduate programme, as per the prevailing procedure of the admitting institution. However, candidates with Master's degree in Engineering/Technology/Architecture may seek admission to relevant Doctoral programmes with scholarship/assistantship without appearing in the GATE examination.

PATTERN OF QUESTION PAPERS AND MARKING 
Pattern of Question Papers                                                         Marking
The examination for the papers with codes AE, AG, AR, GG, MN and TF will be carried out ONLINE using computers where the candidates will be required to enter the answer for each question using mouse. For all other papers, the candidates will have to mark the correct choice on an Optical Response Sheet (ORS) by darkening the appropriate bubble against each question.
In the ONLINE papers, the question paper will consist of questions of multiple choice type and numerical answer type. For multiple choice type questions, each question will have four choices for the answer. For numerical answer type questions, each question will have a number as the answer and choices will not be given.
GATE 2012 would contain questions of four different types in various papers:
  • Multiple choice questions carrying 1 or 2 marks each.
  • Common data questions, where two successive questions use the same set of input data.
  • Linked answer questions, where the answer to the first question of the pair is required in order to answer its successor.
  • Numerical answer questions, where the answer is a number, to be entered by the candidate.

In all the papers, there will be a total of 65 questions carrying 100 marks, out of which 10 questions carrying 15 marks in General Aptitude (GA) are compulsory.
In the papers bearing the codes AE, AG, BT, CE, CH, CS, EC, EE, GG, IN, ME, MN, MT, PI, TF and XE, the Engineering Mathematics will carry 15 % of the total marks, the General Aptitude section will carry 15 % of the total marks and the remaining 70 % of the total marks is devoted to the subject of the paper.
In the papers bearing the codes AR, CY, GG, MA, PH and XL, the General Aptitude section will carry 15 % of the total marks and the remaining 85 % of the total marks is devoted to the subject of the paper.

Marking
For 1 mark multiple choice questions, 1/3 mark will be deducted for a wrong answer. Likewise, for 2 marks multiple choice questions, 2/3 mark will be deducted for a wrong answer. However, for the linked answer question pair, where each question carries 2 marks, 2/3 mark will be deducted for a wrong answer to the first question only. There is no negative marking for wrong answer to the second question of the linked answer question pair. If the first question in the linked pair is wrongly answered or is unattempted, then the answer to the second question in the pair will not be evaluated. There is no negative marking for numerical answer type questions.

  1. No argument is convincing to justify the postponement of NEET UG 2012. Different syllabus or option of writing only in English or Hindi these are the lame excuses. We have the example of common entrance test for IITs. No one is raising any question of vernacular of syllabus for this prestigious test. By not allowing a uniform entrance test for medical aspirants, those how are at helm of affairs wants to influence the outcome. No one can save India. It will remain corrupt and those who seek mental peace will get settled in some abroad. First reservation will lead to compromise the quality of stuff and then different states will churn out different quality of doctors from their cottage industries. Perhaps, we as Indian deserve to be ruled by corrupt politicians otherwise how an issue on which there is Supreme Court ruling may not be got materialized? Let’s see how the court reacts on this state of affairs.
