This year, IIT Bombay was the organising institution, and it conducted the entrance exam in February over six dates.

To promote multi-disciplinary education, IITs have introduced two new subjects -- Environmental Science and Engineering, and Humanities and Social Science --taking the total number of subjects in GATE 2021 to 27.

These institutions too have relaxed criteria this year and allowed those in the third year of their undergraduate studies to sit for the entrance examination. GATE like JEE and NEET is a highly competitive exam.

GATE qualification is a mandatory requirement for admission into masters, M-Tech and PhD programs and works as an eligibility for financial assistance under the education ministry schemes and other government scholarships.

Several public sector undertakings (PSUs) use GATE score for their recruitment to early and lower middle level technical positions. And the score remains valid for a period of three years.
