  • Candidates having their EQ degree from foreign universities should obtain equivalence certificate from ‘Association of Indian Universities, Delhi’ and submit the same on or before 31 August 2020.
  • In case a particular institute does not have any criteria for First Class or equivalent, 60% marks will be taken as equivalent to First Class for that institute. In such cases where conversion formula is not available, CGPA/CPI of 6.75 (for a 10 point scale) will be taken as equivalent to 60% as per AICTE guidelines.
  • Shortlisting of candidates for the vacancies for PwD(HH) and (OH) categories – whether in Part-I (including those from IITs/NITs with minimum 80% aggregate marks in EQ degree) or Part-II of Table 1 – will only be done through GATE score and not through the Descriptive Examination. However, if a PwD candidate wants to compete against UR or her/his own category in Computer Science included in Part-I of Table 1, then such a candidate would also have to take the Descriptive Examination, if shortlisted.
