Note: Each subject/paper is of total 100 marks. General Aptitude (GA) section of 15 marks is common for all papers. Hence remaining 85 marks are for the respective subject/paper code.

The syllabus for each of the papers is given on GATE website http://gate.iitb.ac.in/ Making a choice of the appropriate paper in the GATE application is the responsibility of the candidate. Some guidelines in this respect are suggested below.

Candidates are expected to appear in paper(s) appropriate to the discipline of their qualifying degree. However, candidates are free to choose any one or the allowed set of two papers of the GATE 2021 examination as per their admission or employment plan, while keeping in mind the eligibility criteria for the institutions in which they wish to seek admission/employment. For more details regarding the admission criteria in any particular institute, the candidate is advised to refer to the website of that institute.

Candidates must learn and educated themselves about the paper code of their choice, as this information is essential during making the application, as well as, during the examination. As the candidates are permitted to appear in ONE or UP TO TWO papers of the allowed combination of TWO papers of the 27 papers of the GATE 2021, they should make their choice with due care.

If a candidate makes more than one application for the same paper, he/she will be allowed to appear in any one session ONLY. One of the duplicate / triplicate applications will be considered and the remaining applications will be rejected without any refund of application fee.
