I am a MS student of IIT Kharagpur(Microelctronics and Vlsi).When my friend asked me regarding the above post, for a minute
i was in a doubt.But friends ,the above post is completely false.If it is true then why i didnt get a call last time i.e.
in 2011 from E&ECE dept for M.Tech(because in 2010 gate marks cutoff was 44 for general category and in 2011 its 58 or 59 i
guess for interview call in IIT KGP),though i got 44 marks in 2011.
So i would like to say its the oldest IIT as well as an Institute of national importance.So please dont post such type of
fake news to degrade its image and to misguide the aspirants.I would also request the authorities of GATECOUNSELLOR to ban
such type of stupid people from this forum.
I think Bishwajeet bhaiya (M.TECH 2012
PASSOUT,MICROELECTRONICS AND VLSI,IIT KGP) will definitely reply.
First of all, I would like to convey my thanks to vlsi_iitkgp for your criticism. It feels really good to know that you are
doing your MS there. Best wishes for your course. Once again thanks for your precious time that you spent in replying over
my post. I am really sorry if I make you angry. Kindly forgive me by treating me as your own brother.
Now I am coming to the post. In your post, you have stated that you got 44 marks in GATE 2011. Cut-off decided by IITKGP for
M.Tech interview were 44 and 58/59 in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Hence you should get a call which didn't happen.
Therefore, my statement is completely false. Am I right, Sir? Before proceeding further I would like to make a small
correction which is in 2011 the interview cut-off was 60. Anyway, it does not matter. Still you think that you should get an
interview call. Right, Sir? NO YOU SHOULD NOT.
Because in 2011 the cut-off was 60 for both gate 2010 and gate 2011
candidates. There was not any discrimination between gate 2010 and gate 2011 candidates last year also. Obviously you got 44
in gate 2011. So the cutoff simply drives you out. Had you applied in 2010, you would have surely got a call; but alas! You
gave gate in 2011. So how would you be able to apply in 2010? Sorry sir, you were wrong. Face it.
You are telling that you are an MS student. So why don't you go to the GATE Office on Monday and meet Prof. S. Sen,
Chairman or Prof. D. Deb, Vice - Chairman or Prof. G. P. Rajasekhar, Vice - Chairman and verify whether they are
discriminating the candidates of GATE 2011 and GATE 2012?
To other fellow members, I have a simple request to all of you. I am not asking to believe me blindly. I have never asked
you not to question my statement. But, please, think twice before going against me. Why all of you don't call GATE Office
and verify the procedure of selection whether they are incorporating any distinguishing factor between GATE 2011 and GATE
In the website it is clearly written under the Heading Selection "Marks obtained in GATE and in personal
interview will have 70% and 30% weightage respectively.
" Is there anything written about the discrimination of GATE
2011 and GATE 2012 candidates? At least I can't find anything. Can you?
I talked with all of the office-bearers of GATE Committee; I tried to convince them that they should discriminate between
the two years; but FAILED. They told me, they are not interested in AIR, GATE SCORE, YEAR of GATE Appearance or any other
They are only interested in "Raw Marks"
, Marks obtained in GATE (out of 100). They told me that this
selection procedure is Senate Approved. So in this procedure everything is CORRECT. That's all.
Finally Who I am? I am a candidate of GATE 2012. I have luckily cleared the cut-off marks; gave a fabulous interview; all
the Professors in the panel wished me luck. But do you know who was the next person going for the interview? He is a GATE
2011 candidate with marks ~49. You can obviously guess what his rank is: ~2000. And I got ~43 with rank ~500 in GATE 2012.
But he has more chance of getting the admission. NOT ME. That's my heart-rending experience back there in IITKGP. This
year, I guess, the interview cut-off is around 40 and it is same for both GATE 2011 and GATE 2012 candidates. So basically
this time, AIR 600 (GATE 2012) is competing with AIR 5000 - 6000 (GATE 2011)! Wow!! This is really nice! Isn't it?
Still you guys are always welcome to criticise me by saying that I am trying to defame IIT Kharagpur; not to believe any
word of mine; Bur believe it or not, IT IS TRUE till now.
On 25th of May, 2012 the result will be published and
everything will be clear there. You know, I am really praying to GOD for some miracle. It is my long dream to study at an
IIT. I will be glad most if I am proven wrong. I am just keeping my fingers crossed.
