GATE or IES

The biggest dilemma after B.tech

education is an essential key to open up your mind and give the inspiration to work for humanity. From our childhood, we keep on listening to the value of education. Till high school, we all studied in the same group. But after it, we divided into three groups, science group, Arts group and biology group. All, these streams are totally based on our area of interest.

This is the story of all B.tech students who want to make their career on the technical side. GATE and IES are two major dilemmas in which all the technical student stuck on.

Gate (Graduate aptitude test in engineering) is an entrance exam which opens up many doors of your career.

  1. You can directly get the job on PSUs. But for this, you must have a good scorecard.
  2. You can also get the direct job in many government sectors through your scorecard.
  3. This is a gateway for your higher education in almost every institution of India.
  4. You can also apply for the teaching also only through your scorecard.

Whereas IES (Indian Engineering Services) is the highest steam job in technical sector of India. In this very limited vacancies are there and to qualify this exam you have to cross three barriers Pre, Mains and interview. You have to qualify each and every section.

If I talk about its syllabus then this is very vast. You have to give all your strength and full stamina to your each and every subject. To qualify this you need to strengthen technical as well as a non-technical section. Right now the syllabus has been revised and some of the subjects are added to it. IES checks all your knowledge, attitude, behaviour and your problem handling capabilities.

Basically, IES has vast syllabus and GATE has a limited syllabus. In GATE there is only 10% is non-technical part and rest of technical only. You can not prepare both the exams at the same time. You have to choose either GATE or IES.  Both have different level difficulty standards. Your mind should be focused in a straight direction only. If you keep oscillating in between these of two then this would be difficult for you to crack it. Because these two exams need your 100% mental ability and your full stamina.

You need not worry at all about choosing GATE or IES.  First you need to know about your area of interest and later on, you need to work in that direction only. Just remember nothing is out of your reach. You just have to understand in which direction you have to move.
