Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about GATE 2020 Application Process

01: Can I appear in any of the GATE 2020 papers?
The candidate is expected to appear in a paper appropriate to the discipline of his/her qualifying degree. The candidate can also choose any other papers of GATE 2020, however, it is better to choose a paper in line with the eligibility criteria of the institutions/organizations in which he/she wishes to seek admission/job.
02: How do I apply ONLINE?
Refer to Section 4.4.2 given in the GATE 2020 Brochure and by visiting the website
03: Can I use one e-mail address to fill multiple application forms?
NO. One e-mail address can be used to submit only ONE application form. Candidates are discouraged to fill multiple application forms using different e-mail addresses.
04: Why should I choose three examination cities?
A candidate will most likely be allotted a centre in the examination city of his/her first choice. Only in cases, where there are too many candidates opting for a certain city as their first choice, the other two choices become relevant. A candidate is required to fill his/her choices of cities to appear in the examination, but should remember that because of operational constraints, the GATE committee reserves the right to add a new city or remove an existing one, and allot a city that may not be any of the choices of a candidate. For candidates opting international centres, there will be only one choice (by default).
05: What do I do, if the power/internet connection failed during the submission of the application process?
Please login to the GOAPS website again and continue the application process.
06: Only SC/ST/PwD candidates have been asked to upload the category certificates. What about the OBC (non-creamy layer) candidates? Do they have to upload the category certificate too?
NO. Category certificate is required only for Indian nationals (appearing from exam centres within India), who wishes to avail a concession in application fee. As far as the GATE 2020 examination is concerned, only SC/ST/PwD candidates and all women candidates are eligible for application fee concession.
07: How do I make the fee payment for GATE 2020 examination?

10: What do I do, if power/Internet connection failed during online payment?
When you can get back online, login back to GOAPS website and check the status of the payment. If the payment was received by GATE, you can continue the process of printing the application form.
If the payment was not received by GATE, you can also check the status of transaction from your bank account. In case, the fee amount has been debited (deducted) from your bank account, but GOAPS does not acknowledge any fee payment, then the money will be credited back to your account. However, this may take a week or more, after the closure of the application process.
In such a situation, you may initiate a fresh payment on GOAPS without waiting for the money to be credited back to your account. This will ensure that your application submission will be on time (within the deadline).
