While appearing for GATE candidates might be baffling with a question that which score will be considered for PSU recruitment. Usually, GATE scores are used as shortlisting criteria but in some cases, they are also used for direct recruitment. The criteria to shortlist candidates totally depend on the PSUs. For example, BSNL doesn’t conduct an interview for recruitment to its JTO examination whereas NTPC tends to conduct another test to further shortlist candidates. Generally, a personal interview and in some cases a group discussion is the screening criteria used for PSU recruitment through GATE.
Eligibility Criteria for PSU Recruitment
Despite a valid GATE score, PSUs can also specify other eligibility criteria such as the pass percentage in graduation, age limit and medical certificate to signify the fitness of the candidate. Only Indian Nationals are eligible for PSU recruitment.
