Gate 2011 cutoff queries

February 16, 2011

Hi guys,

Gate 2011 finished off 3 days ago, and it seems a the number of people aspiring for IITs this year is HUGE!  Since the answer keys have been put up by various coaching institutes, people have a fair idea about ther GATE marks.

To my surprise, there has been unexpected traffic to my blog post  IITs and Gate Cutoff Story 2010 written way back in May 2010!  🙂 (More than 1000 hits in last 4 days.. Seriously! Nobody used to wonder here before! :P)

I am really happy to see the enthusiasm among the students to know what chance they have for getting admissions into the top Colleges in India. But I would still tell all you guys to wait before the actual GATE result is out, (which will not be until 2nd week of March!) before you really start thinking about where to take admission.

If you still have any doubts, I will be happy to answer your queries to the best of my knowledge. Please note that I am from CSE department, and dont know much about cut-offs of other departments. You are welcome to post your queries here or at the above mentioned blog post as comments!

Best Luck! 🙂

  1. gate_aspirant Says:

    getting 56 in an easy paper(CS),do I have any hope for a seat in IITs?

    • Jay Mahadeokar Says:

      Well last year paper was also easy, so according to that trend, 56 would fetch you a call for interview / written tests in IITKanpur, Kgp, Delhi, Roorkee. No call from IITB or Chennai.

      Wait until you get your AIR. This year it might change and maybe you can even get calls from IITB! 🙂

      Best luck!

      • NIkhil M Says:

        I have a valid score of 507 in ME and my rank is 2741. I am in General category. What are the chances that I get admission to NIT? Shall I dare(:P) to apply to top 5 NITs in core feild.

  2. Vijay Shankar Dwivedi Says:

    Hi Jay,
    thanks for posting this nice article. I m expecting 60+ in gate ece, what are my prospects for direct admission to aerospace or electrical in iitk .

    • Jay Mahadeokar Says:

      I guess you should get calls from most IITs.. not sure about direct admission though. For CS, last year direct admissions closed around 62. May be different for ECE.

      Wait for the result!

      Best luck!

    thanz in advance..

    • Jay Mahadeokar Says:

      Varun, I dont have any idea about these colleges. Sorry. I think if you are planning to do MTech, then aim for IITs or best of NITs. Else its not worth much. Go for job instead.

      • varun Says:

        sir mere ko ye batao ki mujhe mba karna chahiye ya mtech or job
        bcoz in our clg there is good placement
        avg package is 3.25 in my clg..
        plz guide me i am little bit confused
        thanx in advance..

        • Depends on your liking. Each person should choose his own field. 🙂 Go for mtech only if your very very interested in technical stuff.

          As per job, avg package in IIT Kanpur MTech CSE this year was surely above 8 acc to info given to me by my seniors. So, decide for yourself.

  32. Satish Agarwal Says:

    Hi jay,
    i am expecting a score of 51 in this year gate. I am from cse branch. From your replies i gather that i dont have much chance for direct admissions so is there a chance to get into iit’s thru interviews?During the interviews do they dig in deep for concepts or just ask the basics.? Thanks in advance 🙂

  33. Suruchi Says:

    Hi..Thanks for your article.I am form CS dept.I am expecting a score of 60-65 in gate 2011.Do I have any chance of getting IITs? As the paper was relatively easier last last year so I am expecting high cutt off this time.

  34. Aditya Mehta Says:

    Sir, M expecting 65 in GATE 2011 (CS paper). What are my chancesof getting into IISC? Which IITs cani get through direct admission and which one through interview?

  35. Prateek Yadav Says:

    Hi,Thanks for these articles

    what are my chances of getting Direct Admi. in IISc & IITs.

    Thanks again

  36. @Aditya and Prateek,

    Please be patient and wait for results. Just 2 weeks to go for that I guess! 🙂 Then feel free to ask your questions once you know your exact AIR. You will have plenty of time to prepare for interview after that.

  40. Viswa Says:

    I expect 35 marks in GATE 2011 CS. I am from general category. It would be very helpful if you will let me know some decent institutions that I can go ahead for applying with this score. Though need not be accurate, please share your views regarding my query. Also let me know if my score is sufficient for applying in DIAT, Pune institute for M.Tech, CS. Thanks.

    • Sorry, I have no idea about these colleges.

      • Viswa Says:

        DIAT is DRDO’s recognized training centre.
        M.Tech in Cyber-security is conducted by DIAT.
        Since I am not sure if my score is valid enough
        to apply for this course, it will be helpful if you
        can get any sort of info regarding this.

        Also, plz let me know what good institutes I can
        expect with my estimated score of 35. This is
        my first GATE attempt and I have less idea
        regarding admissions. Thanks for your help.

        • Hi, with 35 you dont have any chance for IITs. For other colleges / DIAT i have no idea. Maybe you should contact some Gate coaching center which provides post GATE guidance.. like Gate forum.

  41. Rajesh Says:

    I will be really grateful if you can answer these

    • You might get direct admit in IIT D, Roorkee and guwahati, but im not sure.

      For IITK prepare probability, linear algebra, DS and algos, OS, TOC. Probablity and combinatorics is very imp.

  73. Hi guys,

    This is a common reply to all.

    For CSE, if you have AIR > 1000 forget about IITs. If you have AIR < 2000, some NITs might be possible. I have no info on that.

    For any other score, I cant tell you which college you will get since I have info on only IIT Kanpur.

    For any other branch besides Computer Science I dont have any information. So, I can answer any questions regarding your branch.

  74. One more thing, for cuttoffs to different colleges, contact Gateforum or other institutions, they have more info. They have something called postgateguide..

  75. Vyas Says:

    I have got an AIR of 585 in CSE, can i apply for IIT Kanpur?

    • Jay Mahadeokar Says:

      You should apply. I am not 100% sure if you will get a call. You will surely get called for IIT Kgp and Roorkee.

  76. Aditya Says:

      • Vigya Sharma Says:

        Thanks a lot.
        i also wanted to know if i could get a direct admission in any of the iits? Also how are the placements for mtechs at various iits. which ones should i prefer higher while considering placements??

        • Jay Mahadeokar Says:

          I dont thin you will get direct admit. But still hope for best. Placements are really good everywhere. Acc to my pref – i would go for IITB > IIT K > IIT D > IIT M > IIT Kgp > IIT Roorkee.

          Thats my personal choice. Do ur own research..

    Hi Guys,

    Sorry that I am not replying personally to everyone. There has been a lot of unexpected traffic and many repeated questions. So this is a common reply to all.

    Firstly, before you ask, PLEASE CHECK previous comments to see if your query has already been answered previously!

    I have no information on NON Computer Science Branches. So, please dont ask questions related to that.

    I have no information on cutoffs of NITs and other colleges. Sorry that I cant comment on those either. PLease contact gateforum or other such institute websites for such info.

    If your GATE rank is below 600, try opting for IITs, you may get called. If your rank is below 150 you might get direct admission.

    If your rank is below 1500 try applying for NITs and other colleges which you like. Do some survey for urself, contact the college seniors, their info is available on their respective websites.

    Again, above figures are as per my feeling and experience. You may apply for IIT even if you have lesser rank and try your luck.

    Hope this helps.

    Also, people who are posting repeated questions, I would like if others who know the answers chip in and try and solve the queries.. You can help your colleagues by answering their questions! I would be thankful for that.

    I will come up with a common reply till the traffic keeps coming, and also answer specific queries which have not been answered before.

    Hope this helps all. BEST LUCK!

  122. Aneesh Says:

    Hi Jay,

    Apologies for the harassment – I saw the dogpile of posts above! – but I have a rather unusual profile, so I’d appreciate your help.

    I took the GATE (CS) last year, in 2010, and got a rank of 159 and a score of 845. However, my academic record in college has always been uniformly horrible due to my awful handwriting; I usually barely passed the written papers but had excellent marks in everything else (practicals, oral examinations, project work, etc.). I graduated last year with a four-year average of 58.51% – for reference, the topper of the university usually has around 75% to 80% – and am thus disqualified from IITB and IITD.

    The IITK mentioned a minimum eligibility of 55% in the qualifying degree, however, and I meet that criterion. Personally, I’m interested in algorithmics and computer architecture; I may want to pursue a Ph.D. later, and these are the subjects that I’m drawn to.

    (I’ve also heard that IITK is the best when it comes to algorithms and theoretical CS, as compared to IITB and IITD, which are more into the systems and electronics side. How true is this?)

    So the question: Do you think I have a good chance of getting into the M.Tech. program? (I’ve already applied, but an assessment of my chances and any further guidance would be *VERY* helpful.) And what other institutes do you think I should apply to?

    • Jay Mahadeokar Says:

      Hi Aneesh,

      Well, you seem to know most things already. As per your interests, IITK will be good option for you. So, best luck for the test. Regarding chances, it will solely depend on your performance on the DAY. Nothing else counts. 🙂

    Hi guys,

    I was on vacation holidays so could not reply. It seems that there are a lot of redundant queries regarding where to get admission and cutoff etc. I request you guys to please read the cutoffs for last year that I have already posted to best of my knowledge. I cannot suggest you colleges for specific AIRs since I dont have any info on any college other than IIT Kanpur. So, please do your own survey.

    Also, people who already know the facts can please go ahead and answer new queries like Arnab Bose has already done in one of the other posts. Thanks a lot Arnab for your input.

    Best luck for your admission process.

  152. rizwan Says:


    Congrats for getting your proposal accepted for GSOC, I had a query regarding algorithms research opportunity overall at IITK vs IITD, some of my friends were saying that Sandeep sen,naveen garg are very reknown facutly in algorithms. I know that there
    are many profs in Theoretical CS in general at IITK, but is algorithmics also one of the strengths of IITK CS department??

    I am asking this because I already accepted IITK’s offer for MTech (CS), I have an interview call for MS(By research) at IITD need to decide on whether to attend for interview :).

    Thanks much!

    • Jay Mahadeokar Says:

      Well, Prof Naveen Garg, and Sandeep Sen are very good for algorithms. no doubt. If I am not wrong, Prof S Baswana from iitk has jointly done research with Sandeep Sen. So, IITK as well as IITD are both very good in this area. I am doing thesis under Prof Sanjeev saxena and he is also very experienced in this area. So, I guess it depends on your choice.

      Best way to decide would be to go through their research papers and see what suits you more.. Best luck.

      • rizwan Says:


        Thanks for your reply..Well, I chose not to attend the interview, as the faculty profiles in IITD were not very encouraging except for the two profs i mentioned..I sticked to the option of IITK. Can you give me an idea about what research labs and the US based companies(which offer a job in US) that recruit from IITK CS Dept…

        Thanks much!

        • rizwan Says:

          And also is there a possibility of doing a summer internship at software firm/university after 1st year?

          • Jay Mahadeokar Says:

            Internship – yes. Almost 6-7 students have gone for internship from my batch. I am myself doing Google Summer of Code. Regarding campus – IBM IRL comes, and last year FB came and was giving job in california (Though noone from IITK was selected). Also, google, MS, amazon, yahoo, oracle, cisco, intel etc come, but job is in India only.

          • evilgenius Says:

            The main reason I was applying was to get PhD admit to top 5 in CS after masters. With the world class faculty, awesome course structure (thesis for 3 sems), lot of theoretical/algorithmic courses I think at least the toppers in IITK would make it to good PhD programs. And my aim is to pursue this..

            But I was thinking about the case where I end up preferring a job after MTech..would I get a better job than what i can get now [with some preparation]..I am currently working at DEShaw..I had gotten a chance to do onsite interviews with google, and phone interviews for FaceBook last year..I blew it though..

  155. Harish Iyer Says:

    Hi Jay,

    I just got selected for Mtech at IIT K. I also gave interview at IIT Delhi which went well. But i little confused over the pattern in which IIT K and IIT D professors conducted the interview.
    In IIT K , the profs were very uncooperative and sometimes making fun. In IIT Delhi they were very encouraging. So i just want to know from your experience in dept, how the profs are in IITK. Are they supportive and encouraging ? Again it might vary from case to case but in general.
    Since IITK Mtech is more thesis oriented course, do all the students who do their Mtech are able to publish papers in IEEE etc? What if one is not able to do so

    Also if i get selected for iit delhi as well which do u think i should opt for?

    • Jay Mahadeokar Says:

      IITK proffs are also very supportive and encouraging. I dont know why you got this feeling.. May be you talked to wrong students in the department who might have discouraged you!

      In every college, there are some students who like the course work and teaching because they understand it and work hard, and some people are other wise.

      Again as you said, IITK is more research oriented… Not all students publish papers, but the once that do publish papers are considered very successful.. Those who dont manage to publish, still get their degree if they have put in serious efforts!

      IIT D, you should ask some students there.. they might be able to guide you.

      My, view- I love IITK and the way things are taught and learned here.. The overall environment is awesome. If you are interested in algorithms and theory, this is the place to be!

      Best luck..

    Hi Jay,

    I was going through the blog regarding best profs in theortical computer science and was surprised to find that not many are there from IIT K but more from IIT Delhi. I got an idea from your previous blogs that Kanpur is good in theoretical CSE.

    Theoretical computer science research in India
    Following up on my previous posts on computer vision researchers and ML / DM / AI/ NLP researchers in India, here is the corresponding list for machine learning (number of publications according to DBLP).

    In the table below, I use the following venues while compiling the records:
    Tier-1 journals: JACM, TCS, JAL, SIAMCOMP, Discrete Applied Mathematics, Algorithmica, Combinatorica, CC.
    The numbers in the brackets indicate the years of the most recent publications by the researchers in the respective categories. The individuals are sorted in a decreasing order of the sum of their conference and journal publications.

    Researcher Organization Tier-1 conference Tier-1 journals
    Ravi Kannan MSR 45 (2010) 21 (2009)
    Jaikumar Radhakrishnan TIFR 40 (2009) 8 (2009)
    Amit Kumar IIT-D 30 (2011) 10 (2010)
    Naveen Garg IIT-D 28 (2009) 11 (2010)
    Kavitha Telikepalli IISc 22 (2010) 16(2011)

    Nisheeth K. Vishnoi MSR 14 (2011) 1 (2009)

    • Jay Mahadeokar Says:

      Hi Avinash,

      The best place to search for publication record of author is DBLP. Example, for Dr Naveen Garg it is: and it shows all his 53 publications.

      Now, I don’t know if number of publications is the criteria to select your choice of institute. You should instead look at the kind of work done. No doubt that Prof Naveen Garg and Prof Amit Kumar are great in their areas. You may also want to look into DBLP profiles of Dr. S. Saxena, Dr. S Baswana, Dr. Biswas etc from IITK. Similarly for profs from IITD. Look at the titles of papers published, abstracts etc and see if they interest you.

    • Depends on what kind of job you want to do.. Wipro, Infosys is product based. After MTech in IIT, you get chance to go for product based companies like Google, MS, Adobe,Amazon, Yahoo etc which are more algorithm and programming profile based..

        In M.Tech we become domain specific e.g. database… I want to know whether their is effect on growth rate or salary after doing M.Tech… or i can be comfortable after my B.E….I want to do product based jobs..what are the subjects that they teach u…can u send me syllabus..

        • Who told you that we become domain specific? Even if we do, that is only because we are interested in that domain, but noone stops you from exploring other domains! Also, if you consider growth rate, after MTech, your start salary would be 3 times or even 4 times what you will get in say Wipro after BTech (Depending on how well you do during MTech). So, even thinking about growth is silly! THink about the quality of work you get to do.

          The question is, are you good enough to crack GATE. That is work really hard to understand the concepts in CSE. If you are good enough for that then you need not worry about future after MTech!

        • For courses offered, go to department websites of IITs. All info is there!
