Step-by-Step Procedure to Submit Online GATE 2022 Application Form

Candidates, basically, have to follow 5 simple steps to carry out the task. These are –

# Step 1: Register on the GOAPS website

# Step 2: Fill in the online application form

# Step 3: Upload the required documents

# Step 4: Release the application fee payment

# Step 5: Submit and take a printout of the confirmation page

Let’s elaborate on each step to understand further

# Step 1: Register on the GOAPS Website

GATE aspirants must access the GATE Online Application Processing System (GOAPS) website and register themselves. GOAPS provides an “online interface to the candidate for interacting with the GATE administration” to complete the registration process. The official website for the 2022 exam is https://gate.iitkgp.ac.in/. The GOAPS portal can be accessed through the official website.

GOAPS Registration: How to Register on GOAPS Website?

  • Provide your complete name (same as per the qualifying degree certificate), mobile number, and valid email ID and choose a password.
  • Make sure you have easy access to the mobile number or email address in case you receive an SMS or email.

GOAPS Enrolment ID: Upon registration, candidates will be provided with a GOAPS enrolment ID via email. This enrolment ID needs to be well-preserved for future correspondence.

GOAPS Password: Choose a strong password while registering at GOAPS. Not only are candidates encouraged to remember the password, but also they are advised to keep it “safe, secure and confidential”.

 

GATE Exam Application Form

# Step 2: Fill in the Online Application Form

The next stage involves filling in the online application form and submission of the same at GOAPS.

  • Personal information – the name of the candidate, mobile number, date of birth, the name of the parents’ and their mobile numbers. (The aspirants must ensure that the name should “exactly be the same as that in the qualifying degree certificate” and shouldn’t have any prefix or title such as Mrs/ Dr/ Mr/ Shri/ Smt, etc.)

# Step 3: Upload the Required Documents

Once the registration process is over and the form has all the important information filled, the candidates ensure that they have the following documents for filling the application form –

  • GATE Paper (Subject)
  • Eligibility Degree details
  • Address with PIN
  • College name and address with PIN
  • Digital images of photograph and signature with prescribed format (mentioned below)
  • Choice of examination cities
  • Scanned copy of category certificate (in PDF format)
  • Scanned copy of qualifying degree certificate (in PDF format)

  • Valid ID proof
  • Details for free payment (credit card/ debit card/ net-banking)

The above details need to be provided/ entered/ submitted/ uploaded in the online application form. “The GOAPS portal is self-explanatory”; hence, the candidates will not face any difficulty in submitting the form.

Photograph and Signature Requirements (Size, Format and other Specifications) –

Uploading a signature and photograph that fails to meet the prescribed specifications would result in the cancellation of the candidature. This doesn’t stop here for the concerned candidates. They won’t be able to get their money back (no refund).

Here’s what all the GATE aspirants should do while clicking a passport-size photo –

  • The photograph of the candidate needs to be of high quality.
  • The officials will only need good-quality photographs for the GATE scorecard.
  • It should be recent and in color and must match your appearance on the exam day at the exam center.
  • Photographs taken using mobile phones will result in the rejection of the application.
  • Ask the studio man to provide your photo in JPEG format with 3.5 cm (width) x 4.5 cm (height). The maximum size for JPEG should be 480X640 in pixels. If the resolution is higher, ask the concerned person to reduce it. The minimum size is 240X320 pixels.
  • Check the background and ensure that it must be a light color or white.
  • Your face should cover 35% (minimum) of the area of the photograph with a full face.
  • Avoid covering the face with a cloth or avoid wearing a cap or goggles (tinted or dark glasses).

Take a look at the following sample photograph –

GATE Application Photo Format

Here’s what all the GATE aspirants should do while getting their scanned signature image –

  • On an A4-size white paper, you need to draw a rectangular box (2 cm in height X 7 cm in width).
  • Use a black or dark blue ink pen and sign within the box. If the signature is in any other colour, it won’t be accepted.
  • The signature size should be 70 – 80% of the box size.
  • It should be in JEPG format and should be 160 X 560 (maximum) and 80 X 280 (minimum)
  • Make sure it is your signature, not by any other person. If it doesn’t match at the time of the exam, the candidature will be disqualified.

Refer to the following image sample -
