OPPORTUNITIES AFTER GATE For Electrical Engineering Students

First of all there is a question in your mind that is “What about the GATE – 2022”. Should one prepare for GATE 2022 as PSUs are going to become private and no one knows about railways vacancies?

Then my answer is Yes, PSUs are getting privatized but it will never degrade the value of GATE Score. So, far there is no news regarding the changes in the recruitment process and all.

The GATE might play a big role in upcoming changes as of now most of the PSUs prefer the GATE scorecard till now, for their recruitment process. So, keep your motivation high and do your preparation.
