The National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) and the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IITM) have launched a free Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE).
GATE scores are used for various engineering admissions. Candidates who have secured a good GATE score have a ton of opportunities.
- GATE score is used for admissions to various Master of Engineering, Master of Technology, Master of Architecture, and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Indian higher educational institutions.
- Candidates with good GATE scores can pursue masters from prestigious IITs, IISc, and many other reputed colleges of our country.
- Public Sector Undertakings (PSU’s) directly recruit candidates through the GATE scores.
- Candidates can also pursue PGDM courses with GATE scores.
NPTEL is a joint initiative of the IITs and IISc. It is a large platform providing free online certification courses in the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) format. GATE aspirants can now access high-quality video lectures covering the entire GATE syllabus and detailed video solutions of previous years’ exams at the GATE preparation portal gate.nptel.ac.in
Video Solutions to Previous GATE Questions
Video solutions are provided for the previous year’s GATE question papers. The video solutions are designed to be self-contained – starting from a quick recap of the basic concepts needed in solving the problem, followed by a detailed solution using fundamental concepts and ending by providing tricks, if any, to solve the problems.
Video explanation of Subject Concepts
The NPTEL platform hosts video lectures covering a wide range of subjects covering the entire GATE syllabus across Engineering and Science disciplines. To enable easy access, all the topics of the GATE syllabus are mapped and linked to the most relevant NPTEL video lecture(s). These NPTEL lectures are mapped to various topics of the GATE Syllabus.
