    GATE examination criteria suggests that the person has to be in 7th semester onwards to qualify. In ideal scenario you need to be a graduate student. But apart from that you are allowed to give the exam from 7th semester onward only.

    In case if you're non engineering student then also you're supposed to be a final year candidate for the eligibility for exams. You can read more about it here :

    If you are a 3rd year student of BE or B Tech, you can not appear in GATE entrance examination. You have to be the final year student of degree course. Even if you are in 7th semester then also you can appear, but at the time of joining, degree certificate with required pass percentage must be in your hand.

    For detailed information please visit the website of GATE i.e. http:/ and read the instructions and eligibility criteria thoroughly.
