Similarly, our student got fourth rank in computer science, two candidates stood in top ten in IN discipline. I can say with emphasis that fifty percent of ACE students will get into M Tech in all disciplines in all the IITs and NITs" Dr Gopala Krishna Murthy, Director of the academy told The Hans India. GATEFORUM, an institute run by IITand IIM alumni, has also claimed that some of its candidates shared top honours. "Bibaswan Kumar Chatterjee, Shimul Kumar Dam, Vinod Datusliya have bagged first ranks at all India level in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Even Rohit Ronge, Teeneti Chakradhar Reddy were our products" Aditya Reddy, Director of GATE FORUM told The Hans India. 60% boys cleared the GATE In the all-India results, 60.25 percent of male qualified where as 39.75% women candidate got qualifying marks.

According to IIT Bombay, which conducted the test on behalf of the seven older IITs, nearly 81% of the total number of candidates were from four papers: Electronics and Communication Engineering (2,56,135), Computer Science and Information Technology (2,24,160), Mechanical Engineering (1,65,814) and Electrical Engineering (1,52,381). If we go by the statistics of categories among the total qualifiers, 72,125 belong to General, 41,237 to OBCs, 18,936 to SC, and 4,401 to ST category. Physically challenged candidates comprise a total of 1,136 among the qualified in various categories. It may be recalled that GATE 2013 is significant in one aspect i.e, for the first time, as many as fifteen Public Sector Units have signed an MoU with IIT Bombay to receive the official GATE 2013 results across various papers for employment screening purposes. This also indicates the decreasing craze for IT jobs and boost for PSUs.
