WHAT IS VALID GATE SCORE?
GATE score are usually valid for two years, for example if you have appeared for GATE in 2014 and your marks are above qualifying marks, you are eligible to apply in 2015 for M.E. courses. But in 2016 your score is considered as invalid.
The next condition is about qualifying marks. Mere getting score does not show that its valid GATE score. Your score is ONLY VALID when it is above or equal to the score of qualifying marks. For example, if you have scored 20 marks and the qualifying marks for that year are mentioned as 25, then your GATE score is NOT VALID. Then you have to appear for PGCET-2015 examination.
Another question may arise, for this year I got 20 marks and qualifying score was 25, if next year qualifying marks decreased to 22, does it make my score valid. The simple answer is NO. The results for the same years will be considered as valid and invalid scores.
The SC / ST / Category-I / OBC eligibility criteria are applicable to persons of Karnataka origin who are claiming eligibility for Government seats under clauses (a) (b) (c) (d) and (h) the same is not applicable to non-Karnataka students.
