GATE results: The results for Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE 2021) have been declared by the Indian Institute of Technology, (IIT-Bombay). The exam was topped by B Vinith, a metallurgical engineering student. Vinith got admitted in IIT-Bombay last year after he secured 56th rank in GATE. In the year 2021, Vinith topped the Aptitude test which is also his third attempt so far.
A report by The Indian Express noted that while the 23 year old Vinith is pursuing MTech in IIT Bombay, he simultaneously prepared for the engineering entrance test. For him, getting into the research and development (R&D) of top PSUs has been the aim as the top 10 scorers are given preference for the R & D sector in PSUs. As far as his preparation is concerned, Vinith said he focused on practising via online and offline modes, however, the experience of the first two GATE attempts helped him secure the top rank this year. According to him, in his initial attempt, his scores were impacted by numerical, for which he practised a lot this time.
He had also set a strict routine for GATE preparation. While he gave one hour for GATE prep everyday in the beginning, this was changed to 6 to 8 hours as the exam approached. Apart from this, Vinith said taking MTech classes also gave an impetus while attempting the paper.
