Exam Cities for GATE 2021

Zone wise list of cities in which GATE 2021 will be Held

Choice of Examination City : There are two primary choices and one secondary choice. If you choose a particular city as your first choice, then the corresponding zone to which this city belongs will appear, and you will be able to choose another city as your second choice only from this zone. These choices will be your primary choices in a specific zone. However, a third choice will be there in GATE 2021, which is the secondary choice. The list of third choice cities will be as specified by each zone and this will be used only when the cities of primary choice of a candidate are not available. However, because of operational constraints, the GATE committee reserves the right to add a new city or remove an existing one, and allot a city that may not be any of the choices of a candidate.

Table below gives the tentative list of the cities (zone-wise) in which GATE 2021 will be held. Also shown in the table is the Zonal Offices (one of the IITs or IISc).
