GATE aspirants should first check whether they meet with the GATE eligibility criteria. Only the following categories of candidates are eligible to appear for the GATE Exam 2020-2021-2022. Before starting the application process, the candidate must:
Choose the City of choice to appear for the examination:There are two primary choices and one secondary choice. If you choose a particular city as your first choice, then the corresponding zone to which this city belongs will appear, and you will be able to choose another city as your second choice only from this zone. These choices will be your primary choices in a specific zone. However, a third choice has also been introduced in GATE 2020-2021-2022, which is your secondary choice. The list of 3rd choice cities will be as specified by each zone and this will be used only when your cities of primary choice are not available. However, because of operational constraints, the GATE committee reserves the right to add a new city or remove an existing one, and allot a city that may not be any of the choices of a candidate.
