GATE result 2020: Cut-off
As many as 8,59,048 candidates have registered for the exam, of which, 6,85,088 (79.76 per cent) appeared for the exam. This is the lowest in past five years. The decline in the number of candidates is being linked to the MTech fee hike. As reported by indianexpress.com earlier, over 15-20 per cent MTech seats across IITs go vacant every year. The seven old IITs had 280 vacant seats across MTech courses in 2017, as per the data.
