How to prepare for Test of M.Tech. Admissions 2020

  1. What is the written test structure for CSE & ECE Non-GATE applicants?
    The written test will comprise both technical and aptitude questions. For Technical questions: CSE candidates should refer "CS" GATE paper syllabus and ECE candidates should refer "EC" GATE paper. You can check it here. General aptitude will cover analytical ability, data interpretation, data sufficiency, mathematical ability, reading comprehension etc.

  2. What is the in-house coding test for CSE applicants?
    A one hour coding test will be conducted at IIIT-Delhi campus on the day of test/interview for all CSE applicants who are shortlisted. The CodeChef platform will be used for the test. Candidates are encouraged to practice coding in various coding platforms including Codechef. Few sample problems will be uploaded by the end of March 2020 with a suitable platform to practice the codes.
    Sample Coding Test has been started in Codechef platform. Click here to participate.
