Default Re: Attempt GATE again, Which GATE score will be valid

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all-India examination which is conducted jointly by the IISc 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. The GATE score is used for admission in Post graduate courses

The validity of GATE score is of two years & even you have a chance to improve your rank in GATE.

If you will get better than previous rank then you can use your better rank to take admission in M.Tech colleges. You will decide from which rank you want to take admission in any college. You can submit your any of the GATE Rank which will be better of them.
