(b) On the basis of GATE Score:

Candidates will be screened in for Selection Interview on the basis of a valid GATE-2016 or GATE-2017 score in the applicable GATE subject. Applicants with a degree in ‘Nuclear Engineering’ will be screened in only on the basis of Online Examination to be conducted in March, 2017.

Candidates may note the following:

  1. At the time of application, candidates can choose any one or both of the above screening options. As the cutoff GATE scores for screening into Selection Interviews will be finalized only after the conclusion of the Online Examination, candidates are advised to maximize their chance of being screened into the Selection Interview by availing both the Screening Channels (GATE score as well as Online Examination) detailed above
