According to the sources, when Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) started recruitment through GATE. Then the number of candidates appearing for the GATE increased to 10 lakh in 2014.

Fact that most of the students were happier and hoped that they would get a good career in PSUs.

On the other side, only a few disciplines candidates were asked for recruitment in PSUs. It also has been reported that candidates should have to score excellent marks in GATE exam to get an interview call from PSUs.

GATE 2015 has shown a consistent demand for Mechanical Engineering students by the PSUs. This is said to be one of the reasons behind the increase in a number of ME candidates for GATE 2015.

It has been reported that there is the plan to include more PSUs under the recruitment scheme.

One more reason for the dip in a number of candidates appearing for the GATE 2015 is the number of seats available for admission in IITs is very less than the number of the candidates appearing for the exam.

Figures show that, GATE is "one of the toughest entrance exams in India."
