GATE is held in eight zones throughout India, with one organising institute rotating between the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, and seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) (Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, and Roorkee).
“IIT Bombay handed over the responsibility of organising GATE 2022 to IIT Kharagpur after successfully completing GATE 2021 on time in spite of the pandemic,” according to a statement from IIT Bombay. Professor Virendra Kumar Tewari, Director of IIT Kharagpur, will now chair GATE 2022.
On March 27, IIT Bombay published the GATE 2021 results and scorecards for the entrance exam. Candidates must login with their credentials, which include registration numbers, email addresses, and passwords, in order to view their score card. Candidates will, however, pay an additional Rs 500 to view their score cards between July 1 and December 31.
