GATE 2021 Biotechnology Syllabus (Available) – Get (BT) PDF Here

GATE 2021 Syllabus of Biotechnology has been Released Now. Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE 2021) is an examination that primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of the candidates in various undergraduate subjects in Engineering/Technology/Architecture and postgraduate level subjects in Science.

The GATE 2021 score of a candidate reflects a relative performance level in a particular subject in the examination across several years.

The score is used for admissions to post-graduate programs (e.g., M.E./M.Tech/ Direct Ph.D.)  in centrally funded Indian Institutes of higher education (i.e., Institutes which are provided with financial assistance by MHRD and other Government agencies).
