GATE IES and TANCET Exams Syllabus

GATE IES TANCET Exams Syllabus – The syllabus of GATE is based on the disciplines studied in the qualifying examination. IIT Guwahati has specified the GATE syllabus according to the 23 papers that will be conducted for admissions to the M.Tech programmes. The GATE syllabus is similar to the previous yearCandidates must check the GATE syllabus for the paper that they will be appearing for.

Candidates are expected to appear in a GATE paper appropriate to their discipline of their qualifying degree. However, candidates are free to choose any one of the GATE papers as per their admission, while they must check the eligibility criteria of the M.Tech programme where they avail admissions.


Graduate aptitude test in engineering(GATE) and Indian Engineering Services(IES) these two exams are very famous among engineering graduates. Every year lakhs of candidates prepare for these exams. Some of them prepare for GATE and some for IES. There are many candidates who want to prepare for both these exams because the education qualification for attending both these exams are same and the syllabus for these two exams is almost same. But there are many candidates who get confused in between these two exams due to many reasons. Keep this issue in mind we created this post. So that candidates who want to prepare for both these exams can better know about these two exam clearly.

The syllabus for Engineering Services examination has been similar over the years. Candidates must rigorously practice IES Practice Papers to get an idea of marking scheme and the pattern of IES Exam.

Know More About The Difference Between Gate & IES Exams

1. IES acronym of Indian Engineering Services or ESE acronym of Engineering Services Examination. GATE acronym of Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering.
2. IES exam is conducted by Union Public Service Commission(UPSC). GATE exam is conducted by Indian Institute of Science(IISc), Bangalore or any of 7 Indian Institute of Technology(IITs).
3. IES exam conducted every year. GATE exam conducted every year.


1. IES exam syllabus covers the complete engineering syllabus. GATE exam syllabus covers only those which are going to be useful in higher studies.
2. IES tests your conceptual capability. GATE tests your problem solving capability.
3. Hard work is more important while preparing for IES. Smart work is more important while preparing for GATE.

3.Exam Paper

1. IES exam paper pattern : Objective & Conventional type questions. GATE exam paper pattern : Only Objective type questions.
2. IES written exam contain total 4 papers. GATE written exam contain only 1 papers.
3. IES written exam conducts in 2 days. GATE written exam conducts in only 1 day.
4. Calculator is allowed only for conventional type papers but not for objective papers. Calculator is allowed in GATE paper.

4.Paper Level

1. IES objective paper is relatively easy. GATE objective paper is relatively tough.
2. Questions asked in IES are single formula or concept based. Questions asked in GATE are mixed formula or concept based.

5.Competition Level

1. Competition ratio in terms of the number of vacancies versus the number of candidates appearing the examination is about 1:300. Competition ratio in terms of number of candidates qualified versus the number of candidate appearing the examination is nearly 1:10.
2. IES relatively tough competitive exam. GATE relatively easy competitive exam.

6.Exam Preparation

1. Speed is main factor in IES exam. Thought process is main factor in GATE exam.
2. More questions in less time. 120 questions in 120 minutes. 1 minute per question. Less questions in more time. 65 questions in 180 minutes. More than 2.5 minutes per question.
3. Crystal clear concept is required for IES exam. Concept application ability along with crystal clear concept is required for GATE exam.
4. Writing practice is required for IES conventional type paper. Writing practice is not required for GATE paper. There is no any conventional type paper.


1. Main purpose of IES exam is : (1) Central government jobs in various Engineering Departments under Govt. of India. Main purpose of GATE exam is : (1) Higher education (i.e., M Tech, P. HD. etc.) (2) Jobs in PSUs or Govt. Organizations.
“Here we have listed some basic difference in between these two exams. However these two exams have their own speciality. Above provided difference is just from information purpose. This difference will help many GATE & IES aspirants in order to understand these two most famous exams among engineering graduate.”
