Guess most of you are eagerly waiting for response sheets to be out. It can come anytime but can also take a few days. Anyway just wanted to tell a few things.

  1. Your GATE rank may get you an IISc/IIT seat
  2. GATE is not the only exam for doing Master studies; IIITH, BITS are very good and so do CMI, ISI, IIST etc. I dont know how many even applied for JEST exam which is next week. This exam can get you a seat in even IISc. While many people are arguing for the imaginary questions and their solutions, smart people are eagerly preparing for this exam.
  3. Some people continuously take stupid decisions in their life -- I'm telling from a real life example I'm seeing now. This is your life, decide wisely. All the information you can get from Google but in the end you should use your "brain" to process them.
  4. Dropping is not for everyone - last year I made a video explicitly saying who all should definitely NOT DROP. Interestingly even those who liked those videos went on to drop. Anyway it is your or your parent's money, and your time.
  5. Once rank predictor is up, I’ll be adding some real world (open source) assignments. It’ll be hard but definitely worth doing whether you are a GATE topper or not. Once you get experienced with real world stuff, you’ll be valuable like an IIScian or IITian.

You have enough experiences here: https://gateoverflow.in/blogs/interview-experience 

In GO classroom there is a course for M.Tech. interview preparation which has 5 assignments. I'm waiting to see someone who has finished all those 5 assignments and still not having cleared IIT interviews. 

Those with good rank (not needing an interview) can also start the M.Tech. assignments which Debashish Deka and team has uploaded on GO classroom.

@Arjun just to confirm - IISc only looks for one's JEST score in Part A (objective) right ? I remember reading it on previous GO posts but wasn't able to find anything on IISc's admissions page weighing in on this. Is that understanding still current ?

Thanks a lot sir, I will definitely complete those assignments and go through what other candidates have written about their experiences

@shashin, on jest score card,  rank will be of PART- (A). For those above the Part A cutoff, IMSc decides a second cutoff based on the performance in both part A and part B(subjective). In online application form of IISc, they ask for jest rank, not marks and it is based on part-A. Yes, It is not mentioned on their admission page last year also but you can consider the same thing this year also because after 2nd cutoff, only 20 students were shortlisted last year for IMSc and only 2 were selected but IISc called more than that.

Sorry to poke, but does that mean that you can submit and leave after the first half if you're not able to get through the subjective part ? Just trying to understand if there is a minimum criteria for the entire paper, if one is attempting JEST solely as an entry into IISc interview calls - and not for IMSC or CMI. I hope you're not just an aspirant like us and I'm asking too many questions :)
