8. In past few months some PSU’s like DMRC have announced competitive exam for seats (both permanent and contract based) which are specifically for those who have at least qualified GATE. So qualifying GATE(even on borderline) makes you eligible to take those exams. You never know when the notification of these types of exams will come.

9. Recently some pics have also been shared on the internet(with modiji on thumbnail) by major coaching institutes suggesting the usage of GATE score for recruitment by private firms. There is strong possibility of this in near future.
