GATE Exam 2020 Counselling

Interestingly, while IIT Delhi is the exam conducting body, it will not conduct any common counselling for GATE 2020. The candidate instead will have to apply separately for admission to M.Tech courses offered by various institutes based on GATE scores and ranks. In case the candidate wants to take admission in an IIT, he/ she will have to register on COAP, and also apply separately to the specific IIT. All offers made by participating institutes will be uploaded in the COAP portal; registered candidates in turn can accept or reject offers on the portal.

For admission to NITs, counselling is commonly done through CCMT.

What is GATE COAP?

The GATE Common Offer Acceptance (COAP) was started in 2017 by the IITs as a common admission platform for making admission offers to candidates. So, while the candidate still needs to apply to an IIT individually for admission, he/she will only know about any offers by registering on the COAP portal. Also, the acceptance or rejection of offers can be made only through COAP.

Admission to IITs is a two-step process:

  1. Apply to an IIT (or IITs): The candidate has to apply to the IIT based on their GATE scores.
  2. Register on COAP to view, accept or reject admission offers. Based on the applications received by the IITs, they will make all the offers on COAP portal.

Note: IIT COAP is not an application portal, but instead an admission portal.

CCMT:

Admissions to the postgraduate programmes will be through CCMT which is the Centralized Counselling for M.Tech/ M.Arch/ M.Plan admissions at the NITs, and other GFTIs. Candidates have to fill the application form on CCMT to be conducted by one of the NITs, fill their choices of courses and institutes and after the seat is allotted on the basis of their GATE score, they must complete admission formalities if they accept the seat.

What are the Documents Required for GATE Exam Counselling

  • Self attested copy of GATE score card (2018 or 2019 or 2020)
  • Photo ID proof as per government of India norms
  • Original birth certificate issued by competent authority
  • Class X (high school) board certificate as date of birth proof
  • Class XII original mark sheet
  • Original grade or mark sheets of qualifying examination for all semesters
  • If degree is completed, original degree or provisional certificate
