GATE 2022 eligibility criteria have been expanded this year. As per the revised GATE 2022 eligibility criteria this year, BDS and MPharma graduates can now apply and appear for the GATE exams 2022. The IIT, Kharagpur, had earlier decided to hold the GATE exams in online mode on the 5th, 6th, 12th, and 13th February 2022.
Two new papers, GE (Geomatics Engineering) and NM (Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering) were also added to the GATE 2022 exam. VK, Tewari, Director of IIT, also informed a newspaper that “The two new papers will provide direct benefits to our graduates in these two areas, especially when the country needs human resources with advanced capabilities in shipbuilding industries and geo-informatics”.
Meanwhile, last year, the authorities had relaxed the GATE eligibility criteria, thus allowing 3rd-year students to take the GATE exam. The eligibility was also limited to graduates or 4th-year students.
