A.)Most of the universities across the country, consider GATE score as the sole or one of the decisive eligibility criteria for admission into their M.Tech courses. And because you have a good score in your BE, which reflects that you are good at academics, you may consider to appear for GATE again. Analyse where you fell short of last time and focus your preparation more on those areas this time. Attend coaching classes to hone your knowledge and improve your speed. Practise as many mock tests as possible. Give your hundred percent to preparation and the coming year you will definitely score well in GATE and secure a seat in a top institution of India.

Now, if yow do not want to waste one year, you can opt for institutions that do not consider GATE score mandatory for their admission. In case there are no sufficient students with valid GATE score, some institutes fill the remaining seats with non-GATE students based on their performance at the entrance test they conduct or marks obtained in qualifying exam. And some institutes do not consider GATE score as a factor for admission. So, you can opt for one of these institutes. The information about these institutes can be obtained on the Internet.
