  3. I am Still in my undergraduation. I am student of CSE stream.. Its my goal to crack GATE.. but i have heard That GATE for the students in CSE is not prioriable.. No job scope in Govt. sector.. is that true? Can i hesitate Going with GATE examination? also if i have The a good GATE score later on, will the Companies listed above prioritize the fresher with GATE Score under CSE category much like other streams.. What i mean is, will he be least prioritised?

    • Although the number of vacancies for the CSE students is less but the job profile isn’t bad. In fact, engineering stream doesn’t matter in these jobs. Just do preparation and don’t believe in rumors.
