GATE Scores For PSU Recruitment

GATE is held in February in multiple sessions. Aspirants who had applied for GATE might either have applied for pursuing their Higher Degree (Masters in Engineering) or for Recruitment in PSUs that have advertised for graduate engineers on the basis of GATE scores. PSU Recruitment through GATE has been a catching trend with PSUs increasingly turning to GATE scores for their recruitment of graduate engineers in various disciplines.

GATE 2015 saw more than 30 PSUs including big names like ONGC, BPCL, IOCL, HPCL, NTPC, Air India and more recruiting engineers through GATE scores. The number grew to more than 40 in 2016. At present around 50 PSUs are using the GATE score for recruitment. GATE registration number is required for applying to jobs in various PSUs. Even though you may not be interested for post graduate studies (ME/M.Tech) after your BE/B.Tech, you have to apply and appear for GATE exam to get these jobs.!!


This article aims to clear the doubts on the basis of information received from PSUs about PSU Recruitment and GATE scores required for the same. Therefore it becomes essential to analyze the cutoff scores for these PSUs. The GATE PSU Cut Off depend solely on the company policy and various factors. It is to be understood that the GATE cutoff scores will differ from discipline to discipline. Another important point to be noted is that some companies have also used their own normalization formula for inviting GATE applicants for the interviews.

The cutoff mark changes starting with one position of employment then onto the next. The students who are scoring the cutoff taking into account every position, then they will be dispensed for that position. Students endeavoring GATE 2017 can apply to PSU recruitment process for getting a suitable job in the PSU.

It may, however, be noted that these cutoff scores are indicative. This article is designed to give an idea about the kind of scores required to be called for an interview and more. It is in no way to be construed as the final Cutoffs for any PSU recruitment.

As can be seen from the above scores, the GATE cutoff required is on the higher side and only candidates who are in top ranks stand a chance of being called for interviews.

The number of candidates who are called for interviews are around four times more than the actual requirement. This is because the top rankers get to choose the company they will join, and therefore the PSUs call a large number of candidates for the interviews.

Some companies like Powergrid also consider the performance of the candidates and not solely the GATE scores. Most of the PSU recruitment through GATE depends majorly on the GATE scores.

AfterGraduation will provide here GATE Cutoff marks for PSUs as soon as any official notification is released  regarding the same. (Image Courtesy: Engineering Entrance Exam)
