Understanding the GATE Online Application Processing System
GATE Exams Go Online
The GATE 2015 application process will be completely online, including the payment of fees. The supporting documents also need to be uploaded online at the time of filling the application form. To ensure the smooth and hassle free operation of the online application process, the GATE Online Application Processing System (GOAPS) has been developed.
The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and all the seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are the organizing institutes for the GATE examinations. The operations related to GATE are managed by a zonal GATE Office at these institutes in each of the eight zones. Every year, one organizing institute is responsible for the entire exam process and coordination. For GATE 2015, IIT Kanpur will be the organizing institute.
The Gate Online Application Processing System
The Gate Online Application Processing System is an online interface that facilitates interaction with the GATE offices for any sort of student queries and services for the GATE exam. The system is regularly updated. The updates are accompanied by announcements related to the examination and are aimed at keeping the students abreast of the changes.
