What After Gate 'Experience of Gate 2012'

GATE 2012 +  RANK- 358 + CSE + GENERAL 

Please read my previous blog if you have not, you will get to know what was my situation in 2012 while preparing for gate in 2012. :)

In 2012 I got into a very good IT company SOPRA and started preparing for GATE 2012 at made easy. Trust me that was very hard to manage time with job.
Monday to Friday 9-6 job and Saturday Sunday 7 to 5 Classes.
Some how i managed and secured 358 rank in gate, though i was not satisfied again after preparing for 2 years, as again I was not sure of getting an admission.

Now i was sure of getting Top NIT's atleast.
My first reaction was if i won't get admission in IIT's I will join NIT's.
To make sure i will join, i resigned the day i got my gate result.

Again i filled almost all forms of all IIT's M tech and MS but this time only core CSE + IIITH as a backup.
Started getting calls.
This is the list of colleges i got calls from with my priority   
IIITH (After its own written test)

I went for IITK , IITKgp , IITM MS

First Call was from IITM MS
This time I cracked its written , almost 60 students were selected for interview.
Out of 60 they selected 40 students.
I was not on the list. :( :(
For detailed experience of IITM MS you can refer my friends blog.

Second Call was from IITK
I was not having any expectations from IITK because of bad experience in IITM MS.
But I thought of giving my best and I did.
Huge crowd , more than 500 students were there for M-Tech Written.
They called up to 720 Gate Score. I think, that was 530 rank at that time.
After that, I thought i am done here. :P:P
Written paper was having aptitude question first than technical, as I am not good in aptitude I started my test from backside. :D
In technical there were lots of questions from Probability and Data Structures apart from that few DBMS , C , Networks , COA (I mean rest gate syllabus) was there. 

Paper was lengthy , I could not attempt all. But what ever i attempt was correct upto my knowledge , No guesses was the key in exam.
because 60 was the cutoff out of 150.
So if you attempt only 50% of paper you are through. :)
Only 91 students were selected for interview.

Interview : Panel of 3 Profs. 
Interviewer : What's your favorite subject or you are comfortable in?
Me : TOC (they were happy , later i got to know they want guys to say TOC any how... :P) , DBMS.
Interviewer : And??
Me : Operating System
Interviewer : OS ?? (they were not happy with OS, i don't know why .. :P )

After that, they started questioning me.

In TOC, they asked about Turing machine, its definition and all.
Q- How will you reverse an NFA? Means Reverse of L(A) if you have an Automata only.

Probability they asked one question only.
Q- In a Rectangular ground, two persons are standing on random position, a plane going above from the ground throw a packet on ground. If both person have same speed, what is the probability of both persons individually to get the packet, if after packet touches the ground they start running from there position.
(Question was something like this.)

OS they asked about Virtual page definition and all.
Q- What is the advantage if PAS(Physical Address Space) is greater than LAS(Logical Address Space)?

Interview was on 8th of march , We got result on 10th march 3AM. :)
I was selected.

Third Call was from IITkgp
I mentioned time and date of IIT kanpur test and result because i had my interview for IITkgp on 10th March 10 AM in morning.
So i decided not to waste one seat. :)
Still I appeared for Interview because IITkgp have waiting list procedure also.
Fortunately or Unfortunately i was not selected in IITkgp.

That was a short interview of 10 min for every guy. I don't know, what exactly they wanted to see.

But that was over for me.
I was happy to get a seat in IIT Kanpur. 
After that i didn't attend any call.
If you want any help.
You can comment here. I will be happy to help. :)



  1. my AIR is 627
    GATE score is 656
    any chances if IIT,s

    1. If you are general , than IITM MS is the only chance.. you may get a call from IITB RA and IITD MS...
      If you are interested in IIT only than you can for IITR , IITB or IITK Geoinformatics Civil department. but personally i won't suggest it.
      You can always count on South NIT's and try your best in IIITH exam. all the best

  2. my AIR is 1251
    GATE score is 595
    cat is OBC-NC
    any chances of IIT

    1. which branch???
      If it is CSE... chances are very less for CORE CSE Mtech...
      but you will get a call from IITM MS.. and may be IITD MS.

      If you are interested in interdisciplinary than you can go for IITB Geo , IITK Geo and IITR Geo..

      All the best.. :)
