All these public sector companies are going to recruit ET (Engineer Trainee) based on GATE scores. At first they would shortlist the candidates based on GATE score and than they would be called for further selection process which consists of GD & Interview.
No wonder therefore, number of applicant in GATE 2012 has touched a mind boggling figure of 11, 39,395. Compare this with number of applicants in GATE 2011: 5, 52,530 & GATE 2010: only 4, 14, 093. Yes, the number of GATE applicants have more than doubled compared to last year. Most of these applicants actually would not go for higher studies, but are appearing in GATE for selections to the PSUs.
It is needless to say that GATE 2012 application form last date is over on 21st October, 2011. If you had not applied for GATE 2012, you can not apply for the ET jobs in these companies. If you do not know what is GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering), please go through my previous blog article titled: GATE 2012 Notification, Eligibility & Forms
If you have however applied, you would be able to download your GATE Admit card from 2nd January, 2012 onwards. On this admit card would be printed your GATE-2012 Registration Number. You have to use this Registration Number to apply for the ET jobs in the individual company recruitment websites, the date and link of which has been given below.
