After GATE most of you will have one main question – where will I get admit. For this, last year cutoff is a good metric. But again many of the cutoffs are not available. Thanks to gatecselastrank.com most of the available details and also any relevant official links can be found. In this post I’ll quickly summarize some relevant information.

  1.  In 2019, for CSE all IISc/IIT except IITK/D were doing direct admit. (This does not include some related courses like IISc. AI, IISc CDS etc. and some new IITs where there were interviews). In 2020, even IITK will be doing direct admit.
  2. For Research admissions there are always interviews and this year also it should be the case.
  3. Expected last ranks for DIRECT ADMITS this year is as follows (after the last round and not the first round)
      Gen EWS OBC NCL
    IISc CSA 70-110 80-130 300-400
    IITB TA 70-130 80-150 300-400
    IITM/D/K/Kgp 200-250 220-300 450-650
    IITG/H/R 300-360 350-430 650-1000
  4. For NIT cutoffs you can see last year CCMT stats and convert the score cutoff to rank. 

  5. If you are general and your rank is 250-2000, you should be preparing for interviews as well as for IIITH/BITS

  6. If your rank is worse than 2000 and you are general, there is no good option available via GATE – you might get some lower NITs which is not worth going especially if you do not have good technical skills. IIITH/BITS are still an option.

  7. New IITs are worth going if you can find a good faculty to work under. Most of them may not have enough quality professors and placement setup also may not be properly established. If you are thinking about REPEAT please watch this video

  8. Regarding how to prepare for interviews, all the information you can get HERE thanks to Balaji Jagan and at the following links thanks to Lakshman Patel.

    13. https://gateoverflow.in/blog/9740/gate-cse-nsit-admissions

  9. For those not expecting any good admissions you have the following options

    1. Try for GRE

    2. Give exams like ISRO, NIELIT etc where the questions are a lot different from GATE and practice does translate to a good rank

    3. Try for CAT or MBA abroad

    4. Try for a job

    5. If you know how to get a good rank, you can repeat. Otherwise you can join a coaching and at least help run their business

    6. I’m not a life coach – I’m only passing you whatever information I have. Please do not ask me for advise.

Sir , one important point missed in point 9. 'DO JOB'
Iit kanpur is taking direct admission and what about iit delhi in 2020??
Since the iit bombay 30% seats of TA have been converted to RA . So what would be the excepted cut off will be for obcncl ? My rank is 202 and gate score is 811 and category is  obcncl.what are my chances in IIT BOMBAY TA ?

@aman9598 I was thinking of mailing IIT Delhi officials about the admission process for this year. Have you already done it?
