GATE score is a one-in-all key for higher education or employment. I feel that many students have not still understood the purpose and significance of GATE in its full scope. GATE helps avoid multiple tests and thus saves precious time and resource for the student/candidate as well as the organizations and institutions. It is almost similar but more relevant and more useful than the similar IBPS test in the banking system.

This article gives a reasonably good list(though not complete) of the fields and major organizations for employment where the eligibility is based on GATE score.

The students who will soon be prospective candidates, should take it in the proper spirit and work well in unison for the academics as well as for GATE from the beginning of the course itself.
